Extraordinary adventure in Abu Dhabi - we had a wonderful time. Dune bashing was definitely a highlight, our driver/tour guide Faisel made us feel safe and free to have a ton of fun as we were careening around and over the desert landscape. He took endless photos of us, encouraged us (me) to try the sand boarding which was so much fun, and in a particular memorable moment, when I mentioned that the sun set behind us as we drove was pretty, drove to the top of a high dune so we could see it set properly - and get great photos to boot. Highly highly recommended - and get Faisel if you can!

Our driver was attentive, knowledgeable, and most importantly safe. His name was Faisel. As the tour said. We visited a camel farm, dune bashing, sand boarding, camel riding. All activities were well supervised. When it came to dinner and the entertainment all was enjoyable. A great activity that I would recommend to anyone with time in Abu Dhabi.

Hamza was a brilliant guide - he made sure we felt okay in the dune bashing - which was a lot smoother than I thought it would be! The food at the camp was lovely and the entertainment was great too - a bit of audience participation if you enjoy that is included!

Hamza made sure we got as many pictures as possible to remember the day, without being intrusive. Thanks to the company for organising a great tour!
