Itinerary

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Excelente tour, bien organizado, la cena el primer día, las excursiones del amanecer y atardecer el segundo... Y el tercero se queda vacío, con lo cual recomiendo coger el helicóptero, complemento ideal. Las comidas en el hotel Sails of the Desert son caras, pero es el único donde se puede comer.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2014
