    Even though the place is quite busy with other cars bringing their own tourists, it feels like you're being taken care of as an individual and you're on your own tour. The whole experience is fun. For the quad bike, the speed at which you'll go will depend on who else is with you in the group so pray for people ready for some action.
    We had the guide called Wajahad who made sure that we had time to experience everything at a normal pace.
    My only issue was that I did not have internet on the day of the tour and they changed the start time a few hours before so I was late for the start. Better make sure that if you don't have internet you stop at some cafes to check your Whatsapp on the day

    What an amazing trip , Sami our guide picked us up from our Hotel with no delays , he was the perfect guide genuinely friendly and so informative about Dubai, the trip to the desert takes approximately an hour but Sami kept shared so much information about Dubai and was genuinely interested in us and our fellow guests really nice chatting to him .
    The Quad bike experience was awesome good safety briefing , we followed a guide plus there were other guides at the back of our convoy to check for breakdowns etc.
    Sami drove us for the 4x4 dune bashing which was awesome, we also stopped to take photos of the sunset in the desert.
    The live entertainment was good and the traditional BBQ food was tasty, overall a great experience would highly recommend ABC tours . Special mention to Sami he really made the trip special highlight of our holiday

    Very much enjoyed a full day trip from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. My guide Imran Raja was on time and super nice. He provided us with all we could ever need. Best drop-off locations at any attraction (like the Grand mosque, the Louvre museum, etc.), he also took us to a nice lunch and made sure we are well taken care of. The entire way he told us about every spot and every place, very informative and very recommended.

    The trip it self was a great trip. Ww started at the Grand mosque and it is a place to see regardless of you own religion. I recommend taking the complementary tour they offer, and if you get Ahmad it's even better. He took us in the great hall, and we could feel how important and sacred this place is for him, the other amazing highlight was the Palace hotel in Abu Dhabi.
    But those were not the only locations. We saw nice Museum with amazing display, we say the Louvre Museum and of course the Farai world park.

    Great recommended experience.
    Thank you Imran was a pleasure and an honor to meet you.

    An incredible day in the desert, with Ocean Air Travel. 5 stars from start to finish. We ordered an afternoon in the desert with Quad and premium BBQ. The set corresponds to the description that is mentioned on their site, very special mention for our guide Shihab, who was incredible all day long. punctuality it informs you via WhatsApp of the pickup time. And informs you at each stage of the afternoon of what we are going to do. Quad in the dessert, 4x4 in the Red Dunes, where Shihab showed himself as an excellent driver, he perfectly masters his 4x4, really impressive. Then the afternoon continues with a Sandbording session, Shihab also showed great professionalism. and to close this superb afternoon a delicious dinner in the Alkhaymacamp camp, where all the camp staff take great care of you, camel rides, photos with the falcons, great dance and fire-eater shows...
    Thank you Shihab for this unforgettable afternoon.
    We recommend you 1000%.

    Our first trip to Abu Dhabi driven and guided by Major was awesome. He picked us up on time, drove us to and from all the sites safely and he didn’t rush us. Familiar with all the sites he visited, he made sure to offer his in-depth knowledge of what he knows and what he’s experienced living in UAE. We were so lucky to have him as our guide and would use him again if we should return to UAE! Thanks, Major, many blessings to you and your family. The boys from NYC.

    Ali was excellent from the moment he got me from the airport. He efficiently planned each stop and dynamically responded to my requests for food and coffee to optimize my trip. He arranged for tickets for various things and was also in constant communication with me as to not let things get overwhelming especially at the Dubai mall. He was amiable patiently answered my questions in the car while driving about life in Dubai and shared his pearls and suggestions. Definitely would recommend him for friends and family and see him again for further trips
