The tour was really great - the desert drive was great - visit to a small camel farm for a photo stop - then in the camp photo with falcons and various activities such as camel riding or Quat driving! Afterwards food sufficient and typical of the country and a belly dance show! The only thing to complain about is that our driver spoke almost no English or didn't want or couldn't talk to everyone in the car! Otherwise gladly again!

Everything was just great. Our caravan of 6 jeeps successfully passed all the dunes and dunes, after arriving at our destination in the middle of the desert, a good dinner and cultural program awaited us - everything was as promised. The guys are professionals, both drivers and dancers. Our driver and guide Faruk is very friendly and sociable. Everything was top notch, worth every dollar spent. I recommend to all. It is also better to buy souvenirs in the middle of the desert - there your name will be written inside a jug of sand, and it will cost less than in a store. And dressed in Arabic clothes, you can take unique photos. In general, hold on. Of the 7 days spent in Abu Dhabi, this one will undoubtedly be remembered the best.

100% recommendation! The tour was just great! Faizy, our nice driver, drove us safely but adventurously through the dunes, we had a lot of fun. Our group was super nice, the food was great and the dancers gave their all. If you want to experience an Arabian night in a great atmosphere, you should definitely book this excursion. Thank you for the great evening
