Our guide was fab, good communication pre collection from hotel. Driving in the sand dunes was fun though if you suffer from travel sickness beware! The highlight for us was the desert camp where you could ride camels several times, girls could have a henna tattoo and the food and entertainment were excellent. Would def recommend. We were a family of 6 with children 7 to 12 and my mum.

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!

We have had a very nice afternoon in the desert between Dubai and Oman. The driver gave us many pieces of Information about the inhabitants and the country. As we were afraid of sea sickness, we didn't want to take part in the dune bashing. In the evening, there was a nice BBQ in a huge tent. However, the quality of the meat was very poor, so we had to concentrate on the vegiterian soups and plates.
