Instagram naveedkhan997098. I highly recommend this driver! It was unforgettable! It all worked! From organizing to picking you up, the tour was great! The driver was very attentive and took care of the guests! It was funny but safe! If I'm back in Dubai, I'll be happy to book with you again with this driver. Hygiene during this time was given every minute. Were also big concerns before booking. Set up the tip for the driver, that would be my suggestion for improvement. Especially if you get the rating afterwards, you could do it the same way as with the Uber company. Stay healthy . Greetings Nadine

The organization worked well and our safari leader Sadegh drove very safely. Afterwards we had a barbecue and the food was delicious. It was a bit annoying that only cushions on the floor were provided for the food and the show. If you wanted a more comfortable seat, you had to pay extra. You could then rent a kind of "tent" with a sofa.

We were picked up from the hotel punctually at the agreed time. The drive through the desert was exciting. Riding a camel was included in the price. You have to queue for a while to walk in circles. You could ride a second camel for a fee. You didn't have to queue for that long. I felt sorry for the animals. We skipped the ride. After the belly dance show, there were salads and skewers from the grill. Well organized. Coffee, tea, soft drinks, delicious pastries, shisha, etc. were included in the price inside. fire breather and another dance performance and the safari was over
