    It was a great trip to Sandwich Harbour - i can only recommend it to everybody who visits Swakopmund! Breathtaking views, the best guide Uwe and so much fun and still very relaxing with enough time to breath and just sit in the sand to enjoy the views.

    We had a great day with Uwe. He is a friendly guy and really wants you to have the best experience. He is so knowledgeable and passionate about the dunes. We felt very safe at all times and I can really not imagine having done this as „self-drive“ as we were supper happy to have someone drive that has experience.

    Thank you for choosing Desert Dunes & Dust tours. was great having you. We had an awesome day together.
    Absolutely worth it!

    Uwe is fantastic, accommodative and knowledgeable. He goes the extra mile to give a one-of-a-kind experience! The scenery was everything. The only snag on my trip was that we were joined by two ladies who spoke Afrikaans which is fine if they speak amongst themselves or if Uwe is answering a direct question but several times Uwe explained /said something tour related in Afrikaans. Other instances he would switch between languages and it was annoying to either put the bits and pieces together to understand or to ask him to repeat in English. The tour is really worth it. I'd still recommend him to everyone.
