The day was planned very well - we drove about 25km and we had a break to take photos (our guide had really fun ideas and we got amazing photos in the desert). No one was pushing us to buy anything in the beduine village. Although the camel ride was included I am still not sure about that as I don't like to support these kind of activities. Overall our guide was really helpful and took care of us during the whole trip. We saw the sunset while we came back and had a tasty dinner and show after that. I definately recommend it - we got such a postive emostions from the day.

The tour was just great. We had a great guide, we crashed through the desert at perfect speed (full throttle :-)), had free time in the "Bedouin village", were allowed to climb the mountains, watch the sunset and then drive back on the full moon night. If there were problems with a quad, you got a new one straight away and could continue driving. It was really a great tour where everything went well.

Great excursion! super nice guides, who take photos, animate and provide information. After a well-supervised return trip, we were treated to a good meal in front of a nice show: belly dancing, fire-breathing, ...

I was lucky as I was on my own on the tour. We went full speed to the mountains which took 45 minutes, went camel riding in beduin village, had nice dinner with dance show. All good.

Fantastische Reise, perfekte Organisation, freundliche Sachen, herrliche Aussicht auf die Wüste
