At times, riding was fast and fun. At other times, we snaked along taking in the beautiful vistas. Both were equally enjoyable.

Very comfortable for camping. Food very good and interesting, especially middle eastern dishes. There was some introduction to local food that was interesting.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

You mentioned it might be valuable to bring a sleeping pad. The pads provided were very comfortable and, though small, bringing a sleeping pad took up space.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Fast, fun riding; desert vistas and landscapes; intro to desert life; enchanting moments.
The vistas and desert views were great. The riding was fast and fun. There was some introduction to desert life and food that was interesting. Every day there are small enchanting moments and explorations -- I won't mention them so that other riders can enjoy the surprise of the experience. The music at night was also enchanting.
It's worth noting I was riding in mid-March, although I'm submitting this at end of April. In The Saddle was flexible, helpful and reliable in arranging a pretour extension.
