Very nice trip through the Arabian desert! 2 paths of 25 km each are more than sufficient and, in addition to a great backdrop, offered a lot of driving fun! Transfer from the hotel and back was completely smooth and on time. The buggies rattled a bit - but I think that happens to every car that is beaten 100km a day through the rocky and sandy desert! ;) Was traveling with a buddy for two with a guide - the guide was very nice and not pushy! There was a lot of material in the front so that you could bang through the sand at 60-70kmH at the top. In the Benuiden village there was tea and a camel ride at half-time for those who wanted. On the way back you could enjoy the sunset. All in all a great trip and absolutely recommendable!☀️

The transfer there and back went great! I was picked up in the lobby. The driving itself was great fun, I was lucky enough to be able to drive alone with the guide, so I chose the ride a little faster and he agreed. I would estimate the vehicle at 70-100hp and max. 65kmh so it has already pulled. We stopped in very beautiful places to take a break and at the same time the perfect opportunity to take photos. The photos turned out really great too. However, you are not allowed to break away from the given route and in a larger group you have to ride in a row. I would do it again in a heartbeat, most of them spoke German too.

The pickup was very punctual and I was contacted via Whatsapp the day before and informed about the exact time. From Jungle Aqua Park we drove about 10 minutes to a station. Waited there briefly until there was an introduction to the vehicle. We had our personal guide, otherwise no other participants with buggies, only quads that didn't drive with us. You drive about 2x25km at up to 70km/h through the very impressive desert. However, what was not as described is that we drove to a camp where a terrarium (animal exhibition), camel rides (about 5 minutes), grilled bread and tea were offered. Unfortunately, the guide took us everywhere and relatively lavish tips are expected. It was very commercialized, it wasn't about experiences, it was about money - a shame, because the mood is suffering. Our tour started at 2 p.m., so that we could not experience the sunset described.
