We had a blast with our guide/driver Abdul that took care of our family all afternoon and during the dinner. The drive was above expectations and our kids loved it! If you don’t like sand think twice about the sand boarding - it’s great fun, but the sand will stick for a while if you fall on your face (like I did…). Abdul helped me out with access to water to clean up . The fire show during dinner was spectacular and a good ending of a great day. We highly recommend this tour. Enjoy!

Shaukat was an excellent host and driver. He picked us up from our hotel and was kind and courteous the entire trip. He was a great host and made us feel safe throughout the trip. He always told us what we’re doing next and gave us an estimate of the time we had remaining. I would definitely recommend him and will be asking for him for our next adventure!!

Convenient collection directly from our hotel in an air-conditioned off-road vehicle. The journey towards the desert takes about 40 minutes, there is a 30-minute stop on the way, there you have the opportunity to drive a quad, ride camels or buy all kinds of souvenirs. For my taste, the stopover could have been a lot shorter, but then we went cross-country into the desert with the off-road vehicle and clearly evacuated tires. The trip will definitely be bumpy, but it's a lot of fun and the highlight of the tour. After 30 minutes there is another stop for photos and sandboarding. Then we go to the camp for a belly dance and fire show with Arabic food. The camp seemed a little too artificial for me and wasn't exactly my taste, but it was still quite entertaining. Big compliments also to our guide Abdul, who always had an open ear and looked after us very well! :)
