It has always been my dream to see the desert. Finally I was able to see, walk and enjoy it in different ways thanks to Desert Gate. The 4WD were impressive and tthe pilots professionals and funny. Thy are excellent drivers and guide. After some fun up and down the dunes we went to a tent campsite in the desert. Food, dancers, drinks, music, camels. The best memory is the desert during night hours, enlightened by fires, stars, magic atmosphere.
Everything was really good except that the Dune Bashing driving wildly in the dunes was way to long. It felt like forever maybe 20 minutes or more, so several of us felt sick. I saw people getting out of vehicles and throwing up.
But, as said, timely pick up, nice clean car, good food, nice show and well worth the price of 60.
This is a well organised tour by an experienced operator. No doubt as they do this day in day out. There are also other operators that run the exact same tours, as we saw that there are other tents in the desert having the same set-ups.
I'd say that overall the pickup/dropoff, food, entertainment, shisha, cammel ride it's basically a get on - walk 3 steps - get down thing, but fine are great. This is a must do!
Fun the drive on the sand dunes, nice the dinner night and related entertainment. A bit disappointing the camel ride, which consists in a few seconds circle ride, and the location where you can dress as a local and take pictures didnt have any staff to help you with the challenging wardrobe. I have called directly the companys office several times before the tour, but it seemed to me that the employees read a script and had no clue of what I was asking. My overall experience was pleasant, yet I would reccomend it only to someone like me who had never done anything similar before.
