If you just want to spend half a day on tour this may be an option. Nice guide, camel riding and sand boarding, if you want to.

Great fun, even if some got car sick friom driving in the dunes. The drivers were very skilled. We ended with BBQ dinner at a tentsite in the desert where they also had all kinds of activities including an amazing dance show featuring a dancer with many layers of colourful skirts going around and around as well as a skilled bellydancer. Some of us dressed up in Arab costumes, great photo opportunities! Only regret was that we did not have time to ride camels, it was getting dark. This was a typical "tourist trap", but still a great way to relax away from meetings and work.

However you get there there will be lots of people. Try to get a little way away from the crowds and you can feel like you are on your own. Look for the other wild life bile you are there you will see some.

We had a terrific time on this adventure. Saw wild life, 4xwheel sand dune drive was fun, Fazel our guide was excellent and camel ride, meal, belly dancer, henna tattooing and star gazing added something special to the night. great fun....
