We had high expectations for the sand dunes, and if we're honest felt a little let down. The formations were impressive but it was very much ruined by quad bike tyre marks and footstep imprints all over the place. We were told (reminded) by a couple that New Zealand has some much clearer and unspoilt ones, so we'll have to compare. On the tour, we ...
