Reviewed 29 June 2018

This trip did not meet expectations of what was proposed during the meeting. The trip lasted from 11am till 4pm (we decided to go back to the hotel earlier as we were exhausted) I and my boyfriend booked this trip thinking that we would receive the following activities and plans: we would receive a welcome drink and shisha (which we didn't) 2. Travel by Jeep to bedouin village (which was an experience in itself jumping up and down the dessert hills). We were able to ride the quad bikes and buggy's (in pairs) but no drinks or first aiders were present. Although the weather was 37 degrees, in the dessert it was 45 and after the quad bike, the group was exhausted. We were offered water and were told food and drink were at no extra cost. We ordered 2 smoothies and were told to pay this after to the cafe (which was not addressed). By the time we finished the quad biking, buggy, and very bumpy jeep through the dessert we were at the Bedouin village. It was far too hot to ride the camels, so the majority of us stayed under a hunt for an hour whilst the others were being shown around - trying to be sold oral creams and drink the local tea.Be prepared, take drinks and snacks as you will get tired really easily! Overall the quads and the buggy were an amazing experience but be careful of the heat and prepared for a long day ahead of you

It's not an action for adventurers. You are not allowed to overtake, you are not allowed to play with the atv. It's a little tight ride

Quad bikes, open dessert brilliant, you need to go to experience it yourself really.
It’s fast paced, be sure to wear either a loose trouser or have some very HIGH factor suncream or your knees/legs will burn and your shoulders.

Very good value for money a full day and a good meal and show at the end of it our rep was very informative and helpful would recommend a long sleeve top as it gets very hot and some comfy trainers a little hard going on the thumb on the throttle but well worth it
