This by far is one of the activities I enjoying doing everyother time I'm in Dubai. Ahmed our tour guide made it exceptional. He made sure we (my wife and I) got premium service at every point. He was very courteous, friendly yet professional. On a lighter note Ahmed should have been a second job as a photographer, his shots were insane!!! In all, Ahmed made this trip blissful and we totally enjoyed it.

It was really good. I wish they provide the water earlier. So some don't have to buy from the first stop. (Quad bikes) Also wish if they allow people to choose the Seats as well. If you get the front seat. You are lucky

Great experience, I would definitely recommend it. Our guide Faiz, the best of the best - and driver, humor, friendly, photographer, made our day

Very well organised day. Richard fraiz (our tour guide) was very helpful and informative. Great day overall

a great tour with lots of activities and we've been taken care of very well!
