This adventure is surely one that cannot be missed. It was exhilarating going through the dunes and sand boarding. Arriving at the desert oasis was something I will never forget. Camel rides, meeting a falcon, hookas, excellent food with an excellent show, this trip exceeded my expectations. And for a fantastic price to boot!
The best experience in Dubai. Our guide Monsoor went above and beyond to make our tour the best as it can possibly be. Oceanair travel is excellent, so well organized.
Oceanair is a very well organised and well run operation. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending them, and would definitely use them again. Communication before the tour was first rate too.
We had Ali as our driver/guide, and I would ask for him again. He made sure we were able to do every single part of the experience and were happy with how the tour was progressing. He was very friendly and helpful at all times. I would go so far as to say that his professionalism and attention to our enjoyment were a huge part of why we enjoyed the tour so much. If it were possible, I would give him a 6 star rating.
Our driver Mobid was friendly, funny and on time (early) Dune riding was thrilling. We considered canceling due to Ramadan and temps but we were offered water before sunset. Absolutely add this one to your to do list!!
The tour was one of the best things we have done in Dubai and we can say in our tours and excursions list so far :) you get it exactly as described! And no idea how these guys are that much organized! They are perfect and made us smile and happy all the times thanks for everything OceanAir and Aku
