Incredible!! Ahmed Zaki was our guide. He showed up on time, made us feel comfortable and safe and was very informative. They picked us up drove us to a special location where we were surrounded by sand dunes, magical lakes, friendly people and a really cool 4x4 experience.

It was exhilarating. Khalid was our driver from and back to the hotel. Thank you
