The tour was well worth it, but there could have been more explanations and details sent to us leading up to the tour just to give us an idea of the logistics. We parked our car at one of the meeting points and someone drove us + our luggage to another location where we filled some papers and had mint tea. We then waited 1h30 before departing and no one explained us what would happen until it was time to leave. Our luggage was brought to our tent while we went on a dromedary ride to see the sunset. I wish our guide explained more about the desert and dromedaries, but he did not seem to speak French or English. We took a 30m ride then got off to walk in the dunes and watch the sunset. Once that was done, we rode for another 20m to get to the camp. Our tent was awesome with lots of blankets and hot shower! We had a great dinner and then sat with our new guide by the fire to sing songs and play drums. A bit later we walked outside of the camp to see the stars and even tried sandboarding.

Very nice tented accommodation with private bathroom. Not even cold as we thought (perhaps because late October). The guy who runs is very helpful and funny. Good and plentiful food for both dinner and breakfast. The difference in beauty and comfort between our tents and those offered at low prices is obvious (the other tents are right next door). I expected the tents to be more lost in the desert, instead they were near the hotel where you arrive by car. The tour in dromedary lasted little in my opinion. In half an hour we did not even arrive at the first dunes, we went down, we saw the sunset and then we took a ride that was wider than half an hour to return. In the morning another 15 min ride. It's all nice anyway, but I thought it was more adventurous. Instead it is suitable for everyone.

We stayed 1 night in the luxery camp and from the first moment it was fantastic. We had an appointment at a gas station nearby and from there one of the gentlemen drove us to show us the way. We were warmly welcomed on arrival. The people who work there speak reasonable to good English and all have a chat with you. We had the time to take a look around and around 5.30 pm my friend and I were put on a camel and our guide Hassan took us into the desert. After driving a bit the camels were laid down and we had to walk upstairs to see the sunset. What a fantastic view. Another sandboard was given to the top and my friend took a descent several times with the guide. We were brought back by camel and now dropped off at the camp. We had some time to put things in the tent (which looked very nice) and to have a drink, after which the food was served. We have everything
