We where picked up at our hotel at the right time by our private guide Tiago. A 45 minutes drive with a stop at the Kamel racing station brought us to the the national park. Tiago had a lot of information about Dubai, so the time run short. The experience at the national park is amazing. We saw many antilopes and gazelles. Tiago had a immense knowledge about the dessert, animals and plants what he shared with us. The stop at the desert resort for breakfast was outstanding. We had a table on the outside with a beautiful view and gazelles around us. We where skeptical about a desert trip as there are many companies with camps of hundreds of people. We had the luck as we picked the best of the private tours. When you want a private tour viatours is the best choice. I lost my classes in the car. Tiago informed me and the day later he brought it back to me.

Exceptional tourguide - Ibrahim. He was welcoming, very informative and created an experience for us that was unforgettable. It was really the perfect tour for us because we wanted to avoid the typical desert safari experience while still seeing the natural beauty of the desert. This tour really had it all for us-- informative sightseeing on the way to the desert, an unbelievable experience at the camel races and the knowledgeable walk through desert flora and desert and a relaxing and incredible breakfast at the end. Cannot say enough. Will do this again!!
