I've been to several countries so far and have had a great time fighting for twelve. Walk in the desert on a camel and play volleyball and cricket with local children. We went on a camel to watch the sunset, took pictures like pictures, ate rice, and talked to local people while having a campfire. Finally, I go to bed watching the starry sky. After getting up in the morning, enjoy the wonderful view of the sunrise and wash your head with a little reddish hot water and enjoy breakfast. It was really nice to be able to experience it while you were young! It was the best! It became a very fun and wonderful memory that felt the size of the earth and the world!

Ray was great, spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable. It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting (an original village set up with local artisans showing their crafts) but totally enjoyable and would recommend. We travelled to various locations to watch a potter, weaver, block printing and opium ceremony/turban wrapping. Had traditional food made in traditional kitchen. No pressure to buy.

Fantastic experice. So peaceful and calm! Gr8 getaway from the city. And even better with Ray. He is the best & I highly reccomend him. Regards from Lisa, German

Unbelievably good experience. It was a perfect sunset on the camels, great family dinner and slept so well under the stars. Recommend anytime...

What a wonderful family to stay with! Perfect camel ride into the sunset and traditional home cooked meal. Definitely do this if you can
