American tourist Sandy is visiting with her daughter Losy and says it has been an amazing adventure.

“We drove around, we saw all kinds of crazy dunes, lots of colours, so I would say adventure would be describing our experience.”

The price for the Martian experience starts around 160 euros per-person per-night in September.
