The drive into the desert- dune bashing - was fun and certainly different. The sand boarding was also fun The tour guide worked hard to engage with everyone

The safari is a great value for those of us who just want the basic desert safari experience without all the bells and whistles. Our guide and driver, Aftab, was friendly and professional. He gave us a great dune bashing experience and did not try to push us to add things to the safari that we did not want.

Very well organized and executed desert trip with professional and very friendly tour guide. In sum, however, the commercialization is also strongly pronounced here. Again and again stops are set up at places where additional business is to be realized. The desert landscape also looks more like a large off-road park, which was settled next to the highway. I made a similar tour 15 years ago, which was much more original and less commercialized.
