Still hangover after few days. I fully enjoyed the tour. It was so exciting to be in desert and we had an absolutely wonderful time. We got everything together like thrill, fun, culture, entertainments, and food together. Dune bashing is quite a unique activity that you find nowhere else. really thrilled with the bashing of dunes. We got all necessary information and tips before each activity. That helped us a lot. Realised riding can be that much thrill too. Sandboarding was like skating over the ice. We had a nice photo opportunity.

It is hard to explain that feeling when someone who has never been approaches a desert. Desert was so magical! I had never seen such a sea of sand. Fortunately for us, there were plenty of adventure activities. I was completely awed when doing Dune Bashing. My goodness! What an experience it was. We did dune drive in a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Our driver was very expert and professional, we felt really safe. Riding a camel in the desert was one of my big bucket list items. Desert camp was unforgettable. My wife got her hands painted with henna tattoo. I did Shisha smoking. I love the moments of holding falcon and clicking pictures. BBQ Dinner was delicious. Wonderful dance performances as well. Loved every single moment I spent there.
