Very nice experience. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel in an air-conditioned SUV (6 seats). Communication was via Whats App and the driver was very punctual. We were given a bottle of water right at the start. Then we drove about 40 minutes to a small village where you could rent quads and ride camels. Since you only booked the camel ride, we rode the camel in a circle for about 2 minutes - in my opinion, this could have taken a little longer but it was okay. Afterwards we were able to pet the baby camels there and take photos with them. After a short wait, we then drove into the desert in the SUV. The guide drifted up and down the dunes, which gave us a little adrenaline kick, but you had to be made for it because you can get sick quickly. Then we sat down a dune on a snowboard. For 30€ it is recommended

Good tour, very well organized, they will pick us up at the Hotel at the appointed time. The 4x4 experience in the desert is really incredible. The guide was very friendly and attentive. The camel ride is the only thing not worth it, too short. Buffet dinner and show are good. I highly recommend the tour for anyone looking for a different experience. In the summer it is quite hot, close to 45° but it holds up well.
