If we could rate this 10* we would! The description on get your guide doesn’t nearly do this your justice. There are some things money can’t buy and this tour is one of those absolute gems in life that really money couldn’t buy. I will be honest, we aren’t overly museum people so for us, the tour started the moment we got back in the truck after this. The Desert drive was incredible, sand boarding was such a rush and the dinner by candle light whilst star gazing was a once in a life time experience! The food was absolutely incredible. The whole set up was so authentic. Everyone we met gave 10/10 service and the whole set up was seamless. Sahib was the star of the show, such a kind, helpful and interesting guide who really knows his stuff. A trip of a lifetime with the best service.

The driver was a very friendly and easy-to-speak person. I didn't expect much from the Archaeological Museum, but it was more interesting than I expected, and I was worried that the desert drive would get drunk, but I enjoyed it very much. Above all, I was very happy to see the setting sun slowly set in the desert, and it was a very good tour.

From the pick-up to the course and the return journey, everything went well and on time. The drive through the red dunes is very impressive. The camels you meet along the way are very trusting and curious, a very nice experience. The museum visited is quite interesting, but you don't need to stay there very long. We could have left out the adjoining horse farm. The camp was very nicely furnished and decorated with seating and lots of lights and the BBQ was absolutely delicious. There were chicken legs, meat, vegetable and poultry skewers, rice, flatbread and much more. It was impossible. Cold drinks, coffee and tea were also available. After sunset, stargazing was another highlight. After an interesting, hot, adventurous and impressive day, we arrived back at the hotel shortly before 10 p.m. The shoes full of red sand and the head full of great impressions.
