I had a great day out with Fayyaz and the four other guests. He was an engaging and professional guide. The dune quad biking was exhilarating, with plenty of photo opportunities, assisted by the friendly staff. The quad bikes themselves were of good quality and in perfect working order. The dune boarding was brief but sufficient. The Alkhayma Camp is well organised, the staff were friendly and we were well entertained. The camels look well-treated and were fun to feed and ride, albeit briefly. The camp is laid out beautifully, with comfortable seating and plenty to eat. It was a treat to have three different cuisines to choose from. I enjoyed holding the falcon and watching the three acts in the show. How much more can you ask for in a single day?

We weren't promised too much. Quad biking was a real desert adventure. At one stop we had the opportunity to take photos, enjoy the vastness and watch the sun go down. There was a varied program in the camp and we were spoiled with a local barbecue. Sufficiently chilled drinks were always provided. And also the transfer from/to the hotel worked smoothly. Our guide Alawy always paid attention to us and took care of us.

The trip was well worth it. Were picked up from our hotel. Many thanks to our guide Erikson. Who not only does a very good job as a guide, but also acts very well as a tour guide. From start to finish we felt very comfortable. We liked the quad tour the most. I would recommend the tour to everyone.
