I was browsing the internet trying to find information about the Empty Quarter when I came across your website.  It was quite interesting and I really wish I could go but I have never been in a cave in my life and don't want to go unless someone experienced is with me.  Anyways, I was wondering if you have any info about the Empty Quarter i.e. how to visit it and is there a company that arranges tours.  I would really appreciate any information you can give me.  Even though I live in Saudi Arabia, it's so hard to find any info because they don't promote their tourism at all.

Looking forward to hearing from you.






Hello Reema!

We sent your message on to people at Saudi Geological Survey who are organizing a visit to the Empty Quarter and and we hope they have contacted you.  We donít know of any caves in the Empty Quarter, although it is quite likely there is limestone underneath all that sand. We hope you enjoy your visit!
