We were picked up by the guide in a 7-seater SUV. Off to the desert. He could drive class. Then, previously booked, drive a buggy, ride a camel. Then to the camp with a cultural contribution, eat and drink a beer. It was a very nice afternoon / evening. Entertaining. This will be booked again the next time you visit Dubai.

Points positifs: - Ponctuel - reservation très simple - très dépaysant, très bien organisé, top journée! Points négatifs: - pas vu de sandboard !! Pourtant prévu au program, les enfants étaient déçus - diner insuffisant, les derniers de la file n'ont plus grand chose. - trajet très long si le chauffeur récupère d'autres personnes. Nous étions les 1er a être récupéré et les derniers à être déposé 1h15 all + 1h15 return juste à récupérer les 3 autres participants !! Dommage

It was a fun experience. You will be picked up by car (45-minute ride). You will then be taken to a collection point where you can still buy something at a shop. Then you go into the desert. Driving in the desert was really cool and cool. There is another photo stop afterwards. Then they continue to the camp. Where you can ride a camel (very short round), the sand boarding didn't really work. Then you can eat in the camp (was fine, don't expect high) and drink and enjoy a show (1 dancer and then 1 dancer).
