We loved the star gazing night. Dark in the middle of the Desert was a great thrill. We did the camel ride also and watched the shows in the middle of the desert. Loved it! Recommended.

We were picked up from our hotel by the minibus and had a great guide called Mohammed who gave us a lot of interesting information about the area on the way to the desert. We then rode camels to the Bedouin tent where we were given tea and water, and then made some bread. We had the opportunity to buy... More

really enjoyed this trip we started off by going on quad bikes through the desert and stopping off for drinks (which you have to pay) and to take some pictures then you drive for about 5 minutes where you stop and ride some camels for about 15 minutes, after riding the camels we spoke to a man who showed us...

This was a lovely experience, we had dinner with the Bedouine people, saw a fire show (which I got to be a part of!) and then learned about the different stars. The guy doing it was very knowledgeable and extremely funny, he really made the night special for us. I would definitely recommend doing this trip, you will love it!

Star Gazing never felt more fascinating, its an experience that will be remembered. Being able to see the Moon and Saturn through a telescope is a marvellous feeling, that's the closest I have ever seen another planet and the Moon, its truly an amazing experience.

A cracking and romantic afternoon and night time experience from listening to how the Bedouin's live to making local bread and star gazing. Well worth it. Oh and a Camel ride thrown in aswell.
