The camel ride was amazing and smooth. The desert show and BBQ was so entertaining. I got henna done, my friends enjoyed hookah, and the food was AMAZING. It was a ton of food. The live show was fun and they even called my friend up for her birthday. I enjoyed every second of it. Thank you to our guide Nikki who took amazing care of us.

The trip started very well with the driver picking me up at my place right on time. Unfortunately, due to road traffic we arrived a bit tight. The camel ride was truly what I had hope for. Experiencing the little bit of the desert was a great experience. Afterwards we went to the camp. It was quite humid and hot, and this is not the fault of anyone, but it was very different of what I had just experience in the desert. Overall the food was very good. I wish I could have had a second plate. The show could have been a little better as I was expecting belly dancing but the fire dancer was truly the highlight of the show. All in all, it's a great activity if you want to experience a bit of the desert.

One thing very well the driver guide who comes to pick you up at the hotel very very well Moussa a real attentive professional he knows his job. beware of photographers and some guides a little too hot in their underpants on the feminine without unpleasant discretion. Otherwise beautiful experience, beautiful show.
