    Amazing experience! Our guide Abdul made this adventure extra special. He was a very good and safe driver and a fun person to spend the day with. Throughout the whole tour he taught us a lot about the desert, Dubai and the UAE in general, so the trip was not only adventurous, but also pretty informative. Everything was well-planed and the food and drinks were amazing too. We can definitely recommend this tour - it has been a perfect day in the desert.
