It was great that Desert Tours picked us up at our B&B and dropped us there again. We chose a "slow" ride because not all of us were familiar with riding a quad bike. This made it possible for us to enjoy some of the beautiful aspects of the desert. Our guide looked for and found a side-winder snake and a sand gecko which was amazing for us - something we never expected to see. Those of us who wanted to also had a chance to "speed up" against the dunes which was exciting. We had a great experience.
