    We really enjoyed the first part of the tour and our tour guide, Ali, was brilliant! Knows Dubai and the history very very well. What we didnt like was that we were told that we will have 4 hours for shopping, which turned out to be an hour and we still had to get lunch! The desert safari was AWESOME! Our driver knew what he was doing and it was really thrilling. The activities at camp was good, not great but good and the food was not so great. Being a foreigner it would be great if somebody could tell us what everyhing was! The "for rent" activities were also very good. Overall I will recommend this tour to anybody as its real value for money!

I had planned on such a flight for a long time and my expectations were not disappointed. Booking, your own journey, on-site procedures, flight ... etc ... everything went smoothly and professionally. Anytime again and worth a clear recommendation.

Everything very well organized. That was a great experience. Incredible perspectives. The pilot flew very well, everyone felt comfortable. Gladly again later. The video, which you can buy, is also highly recommended. :-)
