Unique experience that I recommend. We were two couples (French speakers) only to be there so we had the desert to ourselves! So we expected to find ourselves in a crowd of tourists. Very nice falcon show with a professional who explains very well with lots of details (but rather short). We admire the sunrise while having lunch on a mat with a small buffet prepared it was really nice. Amazing views. The guide takes pictures of you from all angles, great memories. Then he will hurtle down several sand dunes in the desert (funky driving and shaking refrain !!). We had a magical time.

Very nice tour if you want a little insight into the desert. We were picked up at the hotel by our friendly guide punctually at around 5 a.m. The drive into the desert took about 1 hour, there we waited briefly for 2 more vehicles and then the sun rose. A breathtaking experience. Shortly afterwards there was a small breakfast consisting of coffee, water, juice, fruit and small sandwiches. The falcon show was very interesting and everyone got the opportunity to pick up the falcon for a photo. Shortly before the return trip, we went again to dune bashing through the desert, an absolute must! It was a successful and fun morning and can only be recommended.

An interesting adventure. In the morning we were picked up at the hotel, exactly at the agreed time. It so happened that there were no other tourists in our car and we had a private trip. Despite the wind, we liked everything. The falcon cannot fly in such weather, but we are still very happy. It's great to drive through the dunes. But the most important thing is the dawn, for the sake of it we went! Very good-natured drivers. Next time we'll try sunset with a barbecue.
