The tour was well worth it, but there could have been more explanations and details sent to us leading up to the tour just to give us an idea of the logistics. We parked our car at one of the meeting points and someone drove us + our luggage to another location where we filled some papers and had mint tea. We then waited 1h30 before departing and no one explained us what would happen until it was time to leave. Our luggage was brought to our tent while we went on a dromedary ride to see the sunset. I wish our guide explained more about the desert and dromedaries, but he did not seem to speak French or English. We took a 30m ride then got off to walk in the dunes and watch the sunset. Once that was done, we rode for another 20m to get to the camp. Our tent was awesome with lots of blankets and hot shower! We had a great dinner and then sat with our new guide by the fire to sing songs and play drums. A bit later we walked outside of the camp to see the stars and even tried sandboarding.

It was amazing more than I expected. This experience could be the best one that I have ever done of sightseeing. If the people from the countries, which don't have the desert, you have to take it. This could be the best for you as well. Moreover, the guide, supporter and local people are so kind and they teached us how we can maximize our experience. When we had some questions about the tour, we could ask supporter and they kindly solved for us, so we didn't have any troubles even if the first time.
Fun activity with everything there: ride a drommedaris, walk up the dunes and watch sunset, to the camp with food, music. Sleeping in the camp. Comfortable beds in a room with Moroccan rugs on the wall and floor. And watch sunrise in the morning, have breakfast and return to the drommesaries.
