The pickup went without any problems. The quad tour was 2 hours long and ran through the desert. I found the route very varied. I would only advise everyone to bring a cloth or buy one there and also wear safety goggles, otherwise the sand gets in your eyes.

Very cool! I recommend it to anyone who needs some action and isn't afraid to ride a quad. Всем советую! Кто не боится, можно попросить гида проехать тур по-экстремальнее.

Great trip with nice guides you can accelerate if you want. The camels at the end don't have to be, don't think that animals should be used as tourist attractions

Highly recommended, fair price not overcharged, could enjoy till limits, will recommend and use again

Great trip, extremely friendly and helpful crew. Highly recommend
