The excursion is really good. Noufal (our driver/guide) was quite nice and enthusiastically took photos for us. The highlight of the experience has to be the dune bashing - tip: use only the seat belt and do not hold the handles at the side for more thrills :P. Sand-boarding was cool too (specially if you can manage it while standing). The inland sea paints a neat picture being rather desolate :). The drive was quite scenic since the day we went was quite cloudy and the colors of the sand and sea came out really well where ever the clouds broke :)
