What people are saying about Abu Dhabi

Amazing trip through the largest sand desert on Earth

This activity was without a doubt the highlight of our stay in Abu Dhabi/Dubai. Our guide Munir was pretty silent, but a great driver and helpful whenever we needed him or asked something. After Munir came to pick us up, we started our trip to the desert outside of Abu Dhabi. First of all, we saw a few camels at a camel farm and took some pictures with them. Afterwards, Munir started driving through the sand dunes. This activity felt like an amazing rollercoaster and with Munir's driving skills we never had the impression of being in any danger. We did a stop in between the two parts of the dune driving to take a few pictures in the middle of the desert. After the dune driving, we went to a traditional Arabian camp where we drove a quad through the dunes ourselves and ate a semi-traditional buffet. Unfortunately, there were no dancers or music due to Ramadan. We also had other activities at the camp, like wearing traditional garments, sandboarding, shisha smoking, etc.

Best Option for Abu Dhabi trip from Dubai

I booked my trip for Abu Dhabi as I'm staying in Dubai and came here on a solo trip. Recieved confirmation from ocean air travels prior to the tour and the vehicle reached my hotel exactly at 8:35 am as it was mentioned. Had a great trip, thanks to tour guide Mr. Usama who kept everyone interested with all the knowledgable details. Mr. Usama turned out to be a great guide and I'd recommend everyone to book this tour with him. The tour was a success with the grand mosque, royal area, qasr al watan palace. The surprise after lunch was especially amazing which took us to the 74th floor of Etihad towers. You should definitely go for this tour and pick Mr. Usama as your guide if you are looking for a trip in and around Abu Dhabi in a single day. I really appreciate Mr. Usama for helping with the pictures too, even more as a solo traveler. Nice job!

The best dune rides ever, couldn't have asked for more

Our guide was Biju, wow what an amazing human being. Always communicating important information to us so we never lost in the desert, we knew exactly what was coming up all the way on this excursion, I like that he was on time too. Biju is very helpful and very considerate, hot as it is in he made sure that we are always taking water , you know like a mother carrying for her family. The dune ride was mind-blowing. The highlight for me was when my camera ran out of storage he captured beautiful memories for me and sent to me, thank you, this experience was worth every penny.

Decent activity with somewhat wasted potential

We chose this activity because we wanted to visit Dubai for one day to see its most important landmarks and get to know its history and culture a bit better. While our guide was friendly and tried his best to make the activity more enjoyable, we felt like it could have been organized much better and like there was much wasted potential.
