Booking was really easy. A wonderful tour that we can only recommend to everyone. Our guide Biju was super friendly and accommodating, even kindly took some nice pictures of us (with our own cell phone). It was a wonderful experience and a unique experience. We would book again at any time

We loved the morning desert safari! We were nervous as we made a late booking the afternoon before the tour, however our guide called us just before pick up to confirm the booking and was at our hotel as arranged. Our guide was fantastic. He was friendly, informative and able to answer all sorts of questions about Abu Dhabi. The tour was a great way to enjoy a desert experience without being too long as our main priority in Abu Dhabi was to relax by the hotel pool.

The tour was pleasant and fun. The guide was friendly, courteous and always ready for photos. The tour itself started in the camel camp with pictures and feeding the animals. Then dune tour with potential to hand over (meant positive). The driver knew how to drive the dunes well. Then dune surfing which is really fun. In addition, you can also take great photos. Camel riding is like 5 laps in the zoo. It was enough for me personally. In the camp next door there were refreshments (free of charge) and toilets. All in all, we were only looking for a short tour and it was completely sufficient and good with a fun factor.
