Special thanks to our guide Mr Nasir Ijaz who made the trip so much more fun and memorable for us. Everything was explained very well, the whole trip was very interactive which was made even better by our guides hospitality. Loved every part of it from the sand boarding to the hookah with the belly dancing show. A must do activity if youre visiting Dubai, will surely do it again when I come back. Thankyou to the whole team.
