Not much, but it was nice :) It's a small loop, so you won't see much. But as an experience, why not. Btw, it wasn't mentioned anywhere, but the tour actually starts only 15 minutes later (instead of 9 it's 9:15), so if you have tight schedule like I did, you will be late for the next activity.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Tasty tapas and drinks at the end of the tour. Also enough freedom and time to be able to take a picture with the camels. Camels are well maintained!!

A really impressive trip! Starting with the way to the oasis to riding camels and eating.

Staff was very friendly and in a good mood! The food was sufficient and very tasty

Everyone was super helpful and friendly, we had a great time!
