Search “Desert Blanc” on trip advisor. We had a very good experience with them and their prices are reasonable with multiple spots/activities to visit/do.

Kik Y, We went last April and for my son and I for the overnight in the White Desert it was $200 per person without the tip. This included pick up and drop off at our hotel and all meals. I hope this helps.
