Must to when visiting Dubai! Amazing experience
arminn524, 21-09-2022
The Tour was amazing. From the pick up in our Hotel till the Drop off in the evening we enjoyed everything. 7 Hours exciting experience! I have to highlight our Driver Mehdi, who tooked care about us from the pick up, during the whole evening. He was funny, honest and we just felt his passion for his Job.
We learned a lot about the Emirati culture, tried a lots of good food.
It’s absolutely worth it’s money. It was amazing to see how kids and adults are enjoying this trip in the middle of nowhere.
The whole camp, the cars and everything around was so clean and comfortable.

A 10/10!

Congratulations, will definitely come back.
Unique morning at the desert

It was an amazing trip...my family and I loved it, even my mother joined in for the camel ride (made us imagined how it was in our Islamic history, jour ey of the Prophets)
Loved the history telling by Mr Yusuf, the traditional dance, the breakfast feast (it was delicious especially the doughnut)...my son loved the bread and soup (he finishes a stack of bread with the soup)
The falconry demo was amazing and up to my expectation...

Our guide Mr Ahmed Hafez, was friendly, knowledgable and helpful...

I congratulate the team, for a great effort to conserve the culture, the eco for the future generations...

In all, it was a trip to remember...
Great cultural experience

Absolutely amazing experience, would 100% recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about the Emirati culture. Ali Moussa was an amazing guide, excellent service and really knowledgeable guy.
Refreshing getaway from the city
Gediminus, 20-03-2022
In the city of dust and ingenuine glamour, this trip was a refreshing half a day of tranquility. We left the hustle and bustle behind and ventured far away into the quiet and calming desert. It was a reassurance that the real world still existed in this pseudo-paradise of a city.

- The transportation was top-notch. New SUVs take you to the desert, while camels and old English Land Rovers from the '50s carry you around the dunes.

- The guides are truly exceptional. We had a very interesting and the most genuine conversation about life in UAE during our whole trip.

- The experience was truly worth the time and money. We booked the morning tour (from around 6 to 12 am) experienced many aspects of traditional life before oil and skyscrapers and still had almost a full day left for the other sights. Camels, falconry, tea, dishes, and a ride with old Land Rovers should be on the top of the list of any trip to Dubai.

All in all, even the most skeptical of our group changed their mind afterward and were grateful they embarked on this short yet truly essential Dubai adventure.

It was a great experience.
Etrat was our guide and he made sure to explain the history of the desert as well.
