An experience to be recommended from start to finish for anyone who wants to do a first desert tour. Salman our driver picked us up on time and demonstrated his true skill with the jeep in the sand. Even his photos of us were impressive. The tour was coherent in itself. The BBQ was delicious, the show was entertaining and a short camel ride was enough to not overuse the poor animals. Thanks to our driver Salman who made this tour so wonderful! A little tip: when choosing quad tours, be sure to choose the one that goes out. It's worth the money here!

Fantastic experience. The safari was very beautiful and exciting. Mujeeb, our guide, was punctual, very kind in providing us with all the information, very good at driving the car in the desert and a master in taking pictures of us at sunset. I recommend this tour and Mujeeb. Until next time.
