Nothing much to say, but to sum up in one statement...............Abid was an EXCELLENT guide!!!

The tour was also great, we had a fun time and is an event that we would definitely repeat
100% go again!
MitchPriestt96, 29-09-2022
Thank you Alawy for the best safari tour ever! The quads was amazing then we stopped for sand boarding, the went too a camp and rode camels and watched different entertainment while we had delicious bbq buffet and shisha!
Amazing day tour
Robert L, 29-09-2022
There are so many of these desert safaris to choose from that it's hard to get the right one. After much research I decided to use OceanAir Travels. I can only applaud oceanair travels and our wonderful guide/driver. Abid Wahid is the most knowledgeable, friendly caring guide you could ask for. He happily answered every single question sent his way. While pointing out the wonders and the history of everything on our tour. The tour we went on was actually the red desert and Al Marmoom camp. What a fantastic experience my wife and I will cherish forever. Not only did we dune bash with our expert driver, sandboard down the dunes, see flamingos in the lakes have a great bbq, watch amazing shows and see gazels on the way home. But we were constantly entertained by Abid. Highly recommend Abid and oceanair. Thank you, thank you.
Erixson for best your guide 10stars

Great experience

Everything was surprisingly great for the price. Our guide Jaseem was extremely helpful and accommodating.
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing
saintdanielle, 13-10-2022
We had the best day, especially with our guide, Eric. He was knowledgeable and friendly, telling us information about Dubai that we wouldn’t have learned without him. Dirt biking was fun with him and he was patient whenever we got stuck. Anytime someone was nervous about one of the activities (the camels are not for the easily frightened) he quickly made them feel at ease about it. He gave us great tips on how best to enjoy the experience and get the most bang for our buck! I would only want to do this experience again if I was in his group.
Desert Extravaganza

Best excursion ever!
TheBernie5, 21-12-2022
Let’s start with the punctual pickup. Our guide (Santhosh) picked us up right at the time he said he would. We rode in a nice Toyota SUV that was comfy and with AC. Once we arrived to the ATV area, we were offered tea and/or other soft drinks. You could also buy various items such as scarves to put around your head and other souvenirs etc. We got on the ATVs after a safety brief and a helmet fitting and followed a Sand Dune guide. My only complaint on this was that they should separate people who are not very confident in riding ATVs as we kept having to stop for them but it was still so much fun! We stopped in the middle of it to do some Sandboarding and take pictures with the ATV’s. After the ATVs, we got back to the main area where there was a Falconeer that had a Falcon you could hold and take a picture with which was awesome. We then got in the SUV and headed to the camp where everything else would take place. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly and taken for a quick camel ride. After that, you enter the main area of the camp and my goodness it was beautiful and amazing right from the start! You are treated to some fresh bread being made by locals and then are free to go get Henna done for women, grab some tea and/or coffee local style, hookah (shisha) with various flavors on deck, and more Falcon handlers to take photos with and keep in mind this is all included no extra charge (besides tips) and you can grab and do stuff as much as you want. After a little while of enjoying these different things, they let you know to be seated to get ready for the first show of the evening which was amazing. Then they take table by table to go get food from the buffet style of 3 different categories of food which was all amazing! You can grab as much as you want then get dessert too. After this, a little more free time to enjoy the different things described earlier. They then let us know to be seated soon as the next shows are going to start and there was 2 more shows and those were just as amazing with the final one being absolutely awesome. We then ended the night and were taken back to our lodging in Dubai. Santhosh was extremely awesome the whole time and all the staff was super nice and friendly. I cannot recommend this excursion enough, it’s completely worth the money and would honestly do it again.
If you want to have fun, then this is it!!
Mohanad A, 21-12-2022
Everything was exceptional, from the pickup until we returned to our hotel. The tour guide “Sameer” was extremely kind and welcoming. He knows and loves what he does and is a great person to talk with. We did all that the program said. We had a great time. Thanks for the excellent memories.
Outstanding experience
Rab_Loudon, 21-12-2022
This was a truly outstanding experience and definitely a must do when in Dubai. There is something for everyone within this package, quad biking (single or double) was a great way to get used to the dunes before tackling them in the 4x4. Plenty of stops for photos and even a chance to try sand boarding. After a magical sunset, it was off to the desert camp for a unique Arabic experience of food, dance and stargazing. To top it all off, our driver (Abdul) was really friendly and engaging throughout the day. A real joyful and fun day out, you won’t be disappointed.
Amazing experience!!
liammT4357VH, 21-12-2022
Amazing day and worth the money! Our tour guide sandy was incredible and picked us up at the hotel on time. He showed us loads of sights on the way and the quad biking was an experience never to forget. The desert camp was well organised and the food was delicious. The camels were beautiful and appeared to be well kept by the camp. We would 100% recommend this tour provider and would have paid more for the experience! Well done.
Desert night
lulua855, 11-01-2023
The Quad rides and camel rides was amazing our tour guide Santhosh was so nice and was very informative. Food was amazing and there was plenty to do while you wait for the food and shows.
Excellent experience!
vchavanon, 11-01-2023
Ameer was excellent and went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. He will also take fun pictures of you in the dessert. He did a lot more than some of the other guys that we saw around. He’s very personable and patient but highly recommend. The ATV rides and the dinner were great, definitely a worthwhile experience with Ameer and OceanAir. Definitely consider upgrading to a dune buggy over an ATV for a faster more exciting ride.
Amazing experience
Sisirose2022, 11-01-2023
We had a great experience the whole process was very easy and well organised.
The camp is beautiful and has a great atmosphere. We were well taken care of by our guide Abdullah.
This is a must during your visit to Dubai.
What a great experience!
Analia D, 10-01-2023
This was a great experience! Loved the camel ride, the sand surfing, the ATV rides, holding and petting the falcons. The barbecue was good, as was the girl doing the henna.
Our guide, Fayyez was awesome. He was prompt to pick us up at the hotel, good communication via text, letting us know he was on his way and what he was driving. He took good care of us, taking us around and explaining what was going on.
Must do!!
Ewen C, 13-01-2023

We done the Dubai desert safari with quads on sand dunes, desert camp, dune blasting in a 4WD, camel ride, BBQ and show. Honestly, could not have been a better experience. Great friendly staff who went the extra mile. Fantastic company and highly recommended. Shout out to our guide Fayyaz who was fantastic.

Thank you.
Perfect Trip
benez2023, 26-01-2023
Everything was amazing. Our Guide Amr Sharaf was the best. Thanks to him. He made the whole day perfect and the photos he has taken were the best we‘ve ever seen. Looking forward to meet you again Amr!
Fun in the dunes
AngiesTA, 26-01-2023
I contacted OceanAir for a private same day tour for our big group and it was immediately arranged. Amr Sharaf and Aleem came to pick us up in 2 private cars, brought us to the desert, and took care of us the whole trip. My friends and I had a blast driving quad cars around the dunes. Amr made sure to take us through some fun hills and Aleem was in the back, rounding up the crew and helping anyone that needed more time. Our guides were not attentive and caring... Amr is also a 10/10 iPhone photographer!!! Ask for him if you want insane desert portraits!
Excellent Brilliant Awesome
paulH4090TM, 26-01-2023

A tour of dubai
Navigator367889, 13-10-2022
I visited places like the desert safari with friends where we ride camels , bikes, and had buffet we also stopped over in some interesting places
We also tour abu Dhabi and visited the dates market , the Ferrari place , the museum where we bought some art work
Its quite interesting
Great sunset BBQ
sophiemireilleb, 11-01-2023
The experience was great, the team was lovely and very accommodating. The ATVs were fun however you have to stay in one line and you don’t go very fast. The sand surfing was underwhelming as it was a small slope and you only go down one at a time for three goes. However, the sunset BBQ absolutely surpassed expectations, it was in a stunning location. The BBQ was set out as a huge buffet so you can get as much as you want with musical performances as you ate. Then there were performers whilst we ate dessert and hena for the ladies. It was a great experience overall, we loved it.
