Great experience

We had a great time for six hours after getting picked up at our hotel lobby. From there it took about a hour to reach the desert and meet up with about 9 other Cars. The Cars were 7 seat landcruisers. We sat in the back, which was fine, although space to the roof is a bit lower there. I’m 185 cm tall but managed just fine. And there are air coolers with fresh air here is well. Our driver was excellent. Extremely friendly and reliable. Also in the camp after the dune bashing that was very entertaining. Expect a thrill ride and feel the power of fourwheel drive. After a hour with a photo stop we arrived at the camp. Here you have access to camel riding, sandboarding, ATVs etc. Staff very friendly. In the evening a buffet is served. All mon-alcoholic drinks are included. It was good. Then follows the belly dancing show which was okay. After that a show with a man in a dress spinning for 10 minutes, strange but entertaining, I guess. Then you drive back on the road. All in all an excellent experience. Bring warmer clothes if you go in March as we did. And water for the drive.

The top thing to do in Abu Dhabi

This was the highlight of my short trip to Abu Dhabi. It was a very well organized tour. The driver was very knowledgeable as well as funny. The best part of the tour was the thrill ride over the sand dunes. Thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment - folk dance and belly dancing as well as the BBQ dinner

Amazing experience

It was a great experience. Sand dunes was amazing and I loved it. I am not a big fan of the tanoora show altogether, but this show was well done. I cannot say the belly dancing show was great, because I definitely seen way better than that. Our driver, Faizee, was beyond great, and so helpful from the minute he picked us up at the hotel till we were dropped off.

Unforgettable Evening Desert Safari

The driver named HARIS picked me up on time from my hotel. We were 6 in 4x4 Toyota Land Cruiser and the adventure started. Haris is very nice and explains everything clearly and on top of that once we started dune bashing I realise we had a great driver, which wasn't a case in some other cars. Dune bashing was really an experience and I will definitely recommended and especially with HARIS as a driver. The adventure followed with pics on the dunes, camels village and then we stopped at the oasis in the desert where we stayed for the rest of activities. I has a chance to drive quad for 50 AED, smoke shisha, dress up as a local, have a BBQ with many options (it is important as a vegan person), henna painting and finally with 1 male and 1 female belly dance. All in all I highly recommend this experience.
