The sunrise desert trip is not to be missed!! I took my 5 yr old who is obsessed with the desert and it has made his holiday! Our tour guide sahid was the kindest loveliest man who made such an effort with my son and myself and was so kind to not dine bash and just gently take us through the desert (son gets car sick) Sand boarding was great fun too

We booked a private tour because we were a group of six people and the price was lower than for the group tour. Our driver was very friendly and drove safely. Sandboarding was a fun activity. We saw lots of wild animals. The breakfast included a lot of food. If you get sick in cars easily, I recommend sitting in front because the dune ride is a little wild but lots of fun. The sunrise depends a lot on the weather. We were lucky to see a pretty one but in summer it’s supposed to be more colorful. Would definitely recommend for the price.
