    Rafeeq our driver was fantastic. Picked us up from our hotel in a lovely, comfortable land cruiser and drove about an hour to the destination. A 45 minute camel tour through the desert followed by an evening in a traditional Bedouin style camp with a delicious buffet dinner and an array of activities was very fun and a highlight of our trip.

    We were picked up by Jo Jo and joined 4 other people in a land cruiser. First we went on a fun ride on the dunes and then to the camp to ride the camels. While we had only booked for a 30 min camel ride, we got 45 minutes because others had booked more time. This was the highlight of the day, felt like we went back in time as we went trekking in the dunes. Our camel guide even offered to take each person's pictures on their cameras. After the ride we returned to the camp and enjoyed many different activities ...drank Arabic tea with dates, dressed up in ethnic attire, took pics with a falcon and the entertainment. Our guide Jo Jo was wonderful! He was very attentive and made sure we had a great time ...thx Jo Jo!!!!
