They catered to all my needs:
From being picked up at home,
To being able to bring my 2 year old child
Having a fun filled day and
Bringing us back home safely.
I would recommend them to anyone interested in going on their desert safari tours.
Very nice tour! Our guide was so attentive and had sense of humor. Actually, there was something trouble with contacting to that company, they said there wasn’t the tour that I bought . I needed some texts exchanges. At the end, they arranged a nice tour for us. Thank you.
booking was a bit unpleasant. was told had to upgrade to vehicle pickup because bus was full... bus never arrived at venue... driver was superb and facilities new and clean and staff very friendly and helpful
Our safari took place in mid January 2019. From our hotel in Abu Dhabi, it took about an hour to get to the desert and the camel farm we visited first.
Our driver, Safeer Ahmed, was very good. He was personable if you got talking with him, gave us ample time at each stop and navigated the dunes with proficiency and flair. It was as if he took some sadistic pleasure in hearing our screams during the dune bashing. It was great fun.
After the dune bashing, we arrived at camp picked a table to leave our belongings, had about 90 minutes to participate in any daylight activities - camel riding, sand skiing, quad biking - just outside the camp. We then returned to view a video on the history of the UAE, watched an excellent belly dancer, had some dinner (which was plentiful and of good quality considering our surroundings), smoked shisha, took photos wearing some traditional dress and looked up at the stars.
We paid an extra 50aed each to ride quad bikes for 10 minutes. That was worthwhile in my view.
The few negatives were; no falcon show (falcon was there and I took a few pics holding it but no show like I saw on other tours), cold soggy french fries (which you shouldn't really be eating anyway), and most of the boards for sand skiing had broken straps so could do with repair or replacing.
Overall, this was a great tour and the highlight of our time in Abu Dhabi. However, I get the feeling we were lucky that our tour had a low turn out as there was no risk of missing out on anything that was on offer or being disappointed by time constraints.
a very perfect experience!!! Pick up and Drop off from Carrefore very easily. The Dessertcamp very nicely and the food is good. Dunebashing was fantastic. Also for less it was possible to ride a camel; henna and Shisha Smoking.....
It was very exiting !!!!!!!
