Fun, but long wait
Sjirk_R
, Jul 2022
We booked the camelride online a couple days before. When we arrived we had to wait 2,15 hours to get on the right... Not that pleasant. The camelride itself was fun and a real experience but I don't know why I selected an English talking guide because no one was talking. Fun but could be better.

Unfortunately the staff ruined it…

My friend and I were so excited to visit the camels. However, some parts of the experience would put us off going again. When we arrived, there was no clear sign on where to go and we were wondering the desert looking for them before finding it. Not a deal breaker but just an added obstacle. Once we finally found it, we joined the queue to show our ticket. I got told to leave my friend and follow this man to a separate room. The staff didn’t speak much English, and I don’t speak a lot of Spanish, so I wasn’t sure what they were saying at first. They were quite aggressive in their tone and I was wondering what was going on. Basically they wanted to weigh me to check that I wasn’t over the weight limit. I would have happily done this if they had explained this. As a result, I was left in a room wondering why I had been separated from my friend and it was quite scary. Once we established that I was under the limit, we had to rejoin the queue to get out tickets, wait and extra half an hour and the finally get to the camels. The ride itself was enjoyable, quite short but the experience is reasonably cheap I suppose. The photos taken by the staff were good and only cost €5. I’m glad I did it, but would happily never go back to this again. It’s unfortunate but the staff’s manners were definitely lacking and made me feel uncomfortable.

Love le camels

Very relaxing and easy to get to. My boyfriend and I enjoyed it lots. We also loved that we got to stroke the camels as they were very friendly. Probably bring sun screen and water or atleast some spare change as they only have dispensers there.

My 8th trip over 40 years and it seemed a little longer than I remembered. No baby camels nor sign of Elviis but Pedro was a story beast.

Fun activity for the family. Ride takes approx. 30 min. Well organized! You can’t book a specific timeslot but we waited only 10 minutes. It’s a small walk from Maspalomas Beach.

It was really lovely to go and take 40 minutes to quietly go through the dunes. Seeing them from camel height was sweet. The team were very friendly and welcoming and the trip was relaxing and calming.
