Great tour! We had a great guide (Mohammed) who told interesting things about Dubai and the desert, took great photos and took very good care of us. He informed us very precisely about the pick-up time, so we didn't have to wait unnecessarily. Thank you Mohammed and oceanairtravels

Absolutely amazing activity! Quad biking was phenomenal! As I am a vegan I was delighted to see that there were plenty of vegan food options that were labelled clearly and were delicious. Whole atmosphere and shows were brilliant. Only downside was that I did not agree with the camel rides and falcon photos but these are optional activities.

Due to traffic jam, we arrived the camp site more than an hour late (which is no one fault) and missed the quad bike activity. However, the camp activities and BBQ are great experience. The tour operator is very good to provide us 50% refund to compensate us for being delayed in the jam and missing the quad bike activity. Though disappointed in missing out the quad bike experience, the overall is still good as the guide did his best.
