The excursion was really one of the best I've been on. Every action was an absolute highlight. If you are in Dubai you MUST do this tour. The BBQ in the evening was delicious and more than enough of everything. Everyone was super nice and helpful. The only drawback: there was no professional photo service. Abbas, our guide, took many beautiful photos of us with our mobile phone, but we actually thought that a photographer with a good camera would be there. That was a shame, but it didn't take a star from the excursion itself. Would do it again and again and is worth every penny!

Hello, for those who hesitate to do this safari, I recommend it. It is awesome. I had a lot of fun. The guide we got was perfect from start to finish. Very professional with a great touch of humor. He knew how to make all the safari alive especially for me who was alone and who found myself with an entirely Spanish family. He was able to put everyone at ease and the safari went very well. when the delivery of the entire safari (the passage in the dunes, the barbecue, the dances ...) everything is as indicated when booking. For my part, I have nothing to complain about, apart from going for it and doing it. Well worth the detour.
