“camel ride in sand dunes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

well worth doing 40 mins in the sand dunes up close and personal with the camels. The staff are friendly and the cost is reasonable at 12 euros. Make sure you are covered as its in the open and do take your camera.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

At €12 per adult and €8 per child this is a very enjoyable way to spend an hour........... The trek is through the sand dunes and takes about 40minutes. We really enjoyed it. The guide took some photos for me on my phone and was very courteous and helpful. They take photos at the start which are ready on a screen when you get back and you can buy them for €5. The camels have a muzzle on their face but this is not because they bite, but to prevent them from stopping every few minutes during the trek to eat leaves from the bushes.

“Good for a cloudy day activity - 3 top tips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

We were not sure what to do on the only cloudy day on holiday and so decided to wander down to the maspalomas dunes - w gad seen a very dubious sign saying 'camels' so headed this way and found the camel tours.

I am usually a little dubious about the welfare of animals when used for 'tours ' but the animals seemed genuinely cared for. Although the guide said the main problem is badly behaved children that poke and pull the camels. The cost is 12€ per person and for this you get a 45 minute tour round a bit of the dunes (although be aware you don't go into the more beautiful areas as the camels have to stay on a specified route). The guide was knowledgeable and happy to answer questions.

Three tips:
1. Wear suncream - there is NO shade
2. Don't wear white clothes - the seats are coated in a sort of oil and do leave a bit of an orange residue on you!
3. Try and get in the front on the convoy - we were and it was by far the best seat!

Enjoy :)

“Great fun but bring your sunscreen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is a great way to spend a bit of time on your holiday. The guide was so friendly and the camels are great fun, the one behind you loves creeping up behind you and giving you a little nudge. It's so relaing just sauntering through the Dunes. But it is very sheltered in parts and super hot so you'd need to top up your sunscreen before you get on the camel or you could end up sunburnt.
