very good value experience. All the guides are very friendly and helpful. Most speak many languages so everyone gets the same help and instructions. The quad bike ride through the desert is worth the price alone, and the camel ride, bedouin village, bbq dinner, and stargazing are a lovely bonus. Highly recommend this package.
