Excellent guide. Loads of fun whilst still preserving the desert. Great trip.

If you want to get lost in the desert, this is the tour to take. We enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide Jan was patient and informative. It would be recommended that their telephone number is provided as we arrived at the departure point and there was nobody to meet us and no number was provided.
