We had an amazing time during our desert safari. Will was really an amazing guide who kept us safe, took good care of us and had great banter too! Having a good guide is half the fun! We had a great time quad biking, despite the unexpected rain- definitely go for the single bike option if you can. The food at the camp was delicious too. A great experience that I recommend!

It was one of the most beautiful tours I've ever been on. To start with, Nazeed, our car driver/guide arrived on time. He was very kind, polite, and extremely helpful. The trip wouldn't have been so good and memorable if it hadn't been for him. He had it all well planned and executed without any waste of time. Thank you very much, Nazeed.

De chauffeur stond op de afgesproken tijd klaar bij de cruise terminal en het liep voorspoedig. Mooie auto, een uitstekende chauffeur. Leuke ervaring. Value for money!

Great experience, nice camp and show, our guide Shan did his best.

The tour was awesome. Also many thanks to our driver, Nishantha.
