My girlfriend and I had the most amazing desert experience with our guide Alam! He picked us up in our hotel and we directly connected and talked a lot! He told us a lot about Dubai and explained the things we were going to do. This was our second time in the desert in Dubai but this time was very special to us. We were 4 people in the car and enjoyed the trip. It was like a private tour just for us 4 :-) It couldn’t have been any better than this. Special thanks to Alam, we highly recommend him and this activity!

It was a great trip! Really enjoyed the whole experience. Our tour guide Rashid was absolutely wonderful, picked us up on time, took really good care of us and made sure we all had a fun time. The sunset was beautiful, so it was the perfect time to go, we took lots of photos. Highly recommend the experience and the tour guide.
