Overall a great experience! Scarves and Masks were extra but worth it, Quad bike and Buggying was fun but the best was the Bedouin Village. You get to try homemade bread, learn about the people and have some tea. The worst was the journey to the village - This was super bumpy but I guess that is part of the experience Walid was very funny and accommodating, I just wish the camel ride was longer. Food and entertainment was very amazing, especially the fire man ! Thank you everyone Shokran Yallah Habibi

Geweldig leuke trip gehad! We werden op tijd opgehaald bij het hotel. Vervolgens met jeep naar plaats van bestemming, buggy en quad gereden: super leuk. toen een 'bumpy ride' naar bedoeïnen dorpje. Kameel gezien, zonsondergang, geweldig gids! Mooie show bij terugkomst, lekker gegeten. Het is echt een aanrader en Waleed is een fijne gids.

I was a little worried booking on line especially as the hotel reps warn the company’s work illegal. This is so you will book with them at double the price. Trip was good at a great price and all went to plan. Don’t book with hotel reps they will rip you off. This is a good company and I recommend

Great value for money and good fun for the whole family - we loved it!

Amazing day ! Totally worth the price !! Go for it !
