Overall, a good experience! A little mishap before the experience, as the GoPro option was not available and we were initially told no refund, and then that only one of us could be upgraded to the bbq dinner and show ( this is because in our group of 2, one booking was GoPro and the other was standard). Eventually they agreed to upgrade both of us to avoid one of us waiting around. The quad bike ride was amazing! Overall, we spent about 2 hours on the bike. It was 1 instructor and the 2 of us for the majority of the time. There were times when we joined other groups, this was when we visited the village, camels etc. The BBQ and show was alright! It got colder as the sun went down, but we remembered to pack trousers and jackets so it wasn’t too bad. Would definitely do this activity again.

Great experience! We did the safari on a pretty stormy day. When asked, however, the guide assured us that it was not dangerous. We were provided with an Arafat scarf and goggles. These are strongly recommended. Lucky for us, only my girlfriend and I took part in this tour. The guide always took the time to explain things to us and take nice photos of us throughout the tour. Since my girlfriend didn't want to drive a quad herself, she sat as a passenger on my quad. This turned out to be much more difficult for me as a driver, which is why the guide offered to take her on his quad. So we drove to the Bedouin village. It was incredibly cool to get such insight. Altogether it was almost 50km quad ride. I personally find it problematic for young children. In addition, a day that is not too stormy should be chosen.

I was lucky to have a good group. The guide spoke German well and was helpful. It was briefly test driven and then divided into groups according to "ability". But those who wanted to stay together stayed. My tip: sit at the end of the queue, then you can let yourself fall and drive back to the group again and again at full throttle. I had a lot of fun with the relaxed guide, I was able to stand up and really give my all as long as I roughly stayed in line and didn't get lost.
