Great experience. Our guide/driver to the desert was friendly and although the site states they only pick up from certain locations, it is best to get in touch as they can come to you at the hotel. The drive experience itself was amazing. Quad bike in front guiding you regarding a path to follow, but he makes it fun. Takes some bravery and faith!
