We had an absolutely fantastic experience. Our guide, Ash, came to get all seven of us in one vehicle, and gave us an incredible, hair-raising ride around the dunes! It was even better to have everyone together than to be split up into smaller groups. Ash is a very experienced driver, 16 years between Dubai and Doha, and handled the car with ease and agility. He also happens to be a great photographer, and gave photography lessons which left us with some really memorable photos to take home! We sand boarded down the dunes, rode camels, pet falcons, had a lovely walk and little picnic by the sea, all was really really special and wonderful. Our immense thanks to our guide for giving us a great day, and for quickly noticing a desert fox! Giving us an extra special rare sighting for the day!

Our guide was very good, despite the rainy weather he made my trip unforgettable. Olafur Eliasson’s installation was stunning! Keep in mind that you need to walk to see it. It would be better to mention it in tour details. But it worth it!!! This memories will be with me all my life.

We loved every minute! Ash was the most fantastic driver even though we all thought he was going to roll the truck down the dunes! Ash is quite an excellent photographer also, so we have some beautiful images to remember the tour. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Our guide was Bassey, very nice and knowledgeable young man. the food wS great, good portions and learned a lot about Qatar, food, dessert, coffee and tea. would definitely recommend the tour.

He is the best driver and the best guide. We spent around 5 hours and had a great time! If I do this tour again, I wish I will meet him again!
