Mis sold - AVOID bookings with this Viator
Mary_L
, Apr 2022
Avoid this company when booking as what we booked and got was different. We were told it would be a private car, it turned up with other passengers- during covid we was made to sit in the car in masks whilst my children were put in the boot seat me, next to a stranger and my husband in the front. This caused fear on my children and terrible car sickness. To top it off the couple was clearly on honeymoon as kissing in front of my children in the car. The whole experience of what was sold and delivered was midsold. We was the only car to be sharing yet we paid even more then what they did.

Driving through the dunes is an experience you cannot describe as anything less than thrilling! Our driver Anver was an absolute professional and made the drive exhilarating and safe. We came during Ramadan so there may have been available than other times but we did not notice anything less than wonderful.

Great experience

The driver/tour guide was great. His name was Kamal. Excellent driver and we had a great time. The show was nice with the amount you pay you get a lot. My only concern is that someone from the group asked the guy serving the grilled meat for an extra skewer and he said no and later on, food was left for people to serve themselves and there was plenty, so no idea why he intimidated him

Wow fantastic trip thrills entertainment and our driver Rashad was an amazing driver and so helpful.
Yvonne_H
, Mar 2022
From on time pickup at our hotel the trip was fabulous. We drove approximately an hour into the desert. Then we stopped for a photo opposite at a camel farm. This was followed by the most exhilarating thrilling drive over sand dunes. Rashad gave us the ride of drifting down the steep sides of over Big Dipper sand dunes for over 30 minutes. Another stop for photos as the sun was going down followed by more off roading to the camp where camel rides sand surfing henna painting and holding a bird of prey were all available. A generous and tasty bbq was followed by belly dancing and tambalea dance. A totally memorable experience. A huge thank you to Rashid. He took photos. Assistance was offered whenever needed and he clearly loved driving over the dunes! Highly recommend this trip.

Beyond expectations

Rashid was a great tour guide and provided us with an array of knowledge about Abu Dhabi. He was friendly and adapted to the moods of 6 different individuals. We had a great time riding through the dunes, meeting camels, sand boarding, and watching camp entertainment. Only thing I’d say to improve on is the dessert option.
