Really great safari with Qaisar as our team guide. He was really helpful, always smiling. There was just the wait before the ride in the desert that was too long in my opinion. But I will recommend it nonetheless and ask for Qaisar. Really good at taking photos too !!

Asghar was an amazingly sharp driver! The dune bashing was a thrilling experience and the sunset was one absolutely breathtaking. The dinner was very tasting considering it’s buffet with plenty of selection and extensive variety. Food was not bland at all. The show was very nice too and all the staff were very attentive. We had wine with our dinner so that was a plus because we didn’t expect they will be serving alcohol. Overall, it was a really great experience
Fabulous and fun

It was an amazing trip! Dune bashing with our professional driver Mortada was thrilling and fun. The Sahara desert fortress was magical, and had the Arabian desert vibes we were seeking. The food served on the buffet was delicious and high quality. The staff were very welcoming and hospitable. They served dessert to my fiancé for his birthday and played happy birthday which was a very nice surprise. Finally, the shows were spot on! If you are looking for an exceptional desert experience, we highly recommend this tour.

The experience itself in my perspective it’s not excellent, but Abdul (our driver and guide) was excepcional! He made something good into something special. He arranged good prices for Sand buggies, drove us in is 4x4 in the desert like a pro and took the nicest picture u can expect! I wish everyone that looks for this experience can meet him, cause he will make it worth!
I leave some of the beautiful pictures!
