it was a wonderful tour, thanks everyone. It may be that it is not for everyone to "board" a truck 20 km over the desert road. It rocks, it shakes and it is loud and you have to hold on tight (at every fair you pay extra for something like that :-)). it was a special spectacle spectacle to experience the sunset from a small seat cushion on a hill; if you wanted to, you could ride a camel (I had). There was tea and dried dates. Great. Back at the farm we had a very delicious dinner, outside under a starry sky, which unfortunately was covered by a few veils that day. But as is well known, a veil makes the one below it even more exciting. Mohemed, our star knowledgeable guide was great. With a lot of patience he responded to the questions of the small group (9 participants). Conclusion: Sundowners, Bedouin meals in the open air, starry sky in the desert. Highly Recommended,

Excursion to do absolutely. Paradise travel very professional !! Pick up time and return time respected !! Very careful and very caring drivers. New and very clean mini bus !! Very caring guide. The lunch very correct (paid drinks) Do not hesitate to click to book thank you to mark from paradise travel see you soon for other adventures

It was well organized, we had a super lovely and funny guide and really enjoyed the day. You can see a lot in just one day! I would recommend it to everyone.

The package is really worth it, the only problem is that the buses are small and uncomfortable. But generally speaking, I recommend it!

After initial misunderstandings, the tour was a lot of fun, we got to see a lot and explained it very well
