We had a very good experience and specially our safari driver, Ranjit, proved an excellent handling in the desert. When we were coming outside of the car, even walking was hard on the thickness sand but it seems it was not a problem for Ranjit to properly manage the car over the hillside! The food served in arabic culture was good, better than the one found in the hotels. I recommend to get the package which includes VIP sitting since there is a small price difference.

Our dirver Asif was very punctual and polite. The food quality was not as expected as there are around 800-1000 people in the camp. Belly dancing was cancelled as it was ramadan month when we visited. The camel ride included in the package is of only 1 minute, if you wish to do ride more than a minute you will need to pay extra. Also included heena painting is a small art, will need to pay more if you need big art or some other designs.

He helped us with all the activities, told about the places we visited and answered all our questions. He was very helpful, good-humoured and his time managemebnt was great as there were no delays in our pickup and drop off times or the schedule he has explained us at the beginning of our tour.
