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.

We had a fantastic adventure and our driver made our trip a 5 star experience. Very friendly, helpful and fun. He even took lots of pictures for us. I would highly recommend using his services. It was the prefect end to our holiday. We will be back! Thank you
