  • We booked the tour quite spontaneously in the morning, were able to choose a time and were collected at 11 o'clock at our desired location. We were then taken to the starting point of the quad tour, paid and received the equipment and instruction for the quads. In addition, 2 small water bottles were packed per person. We had booked a 3 hour quad and sandboarding tour. We only drove an hour with the quads through the desert, our guide paid attention to us at all times and gave us assistance on the track (signs were identified in advance to which we should pay attention to increase or decrease the speed and to actively to pay attention to the distance left or right) . We drove up and down the dunes, so it wasn't stubbornly straight out. Then we were able to sandboard for an hour. It was a lot of fun, and since we were boarded lying down, even my friend, who had cruciate ligament surgery in January, was able to join in. Again, you don't have to worry about holding the board high and you don't get any sand in your face. After that we went back to the station for an hour. The time was neither under- nor exceeded, the quads were in a great condition and our guide was just super nice. We were with him in pairs. Absolutely recommended.
