Usman was an amazing tour guide! He made sure we taken care of with cold water, answered all of our questions, and shared a lot of interesting information about Dubai. There were no other guests on our trip so we essentially had a private tour for the car ride, dune buggy, and camel ride.

The whole day was planned out extremely well and the set up of the camp was fantastic! Food was very good and the supply of drinks was constant which was needed in the extreme heat. The driver we had who was called Nias, was fantastic! He was friendly, funny and made the whole experience so much better he offered to take our phones multiple times to capture photographs of the trip and nothing was too much trouble for him

I can’t recommend this activity enough. From the moment Erixson our guide picked us up it was a seamless operation. Erixson was fantastic, very polite and professional - he was a real joy. Then onto our Dune Buggy experience which for myself and my 12 year old son Thomas was just awesome from start to finish. Exactly what we had hoped for. Thank you to everyone involved.
