    The experience was incredible. It went beyond our expectations!! Since the very first moment our Safari guide, Moosa, was so attentive and friendly that made the experience to the next levelled . Ya We checked many options but, the one that offers OceanAir is the best and most complete: it includes the return rides, the quadbiking, sandboarding experiences, the ride to the camp where we were delighted with an amazing show of several performances and the camel rides. I truly recommend it to all tourists that really want to make the most of Dubai.

    The Guide (Ashley - he told us to call Him like that, because we didn‘t remember his first name) was amazing. He gaved us a lot of advises for our entire dubai vacation and he made us felt very confortable during the safari. The quad tour was amazing, but exhausting for girls. The camp was also very cool. We recomend to book with this guide!
