This trip was our highlight in Dubai! If you’re lucky enough to get Omar as your guide, you will have the best time! He was so fun, friendly and knowledgeable, and we loved that he always offered to take photos for us! The dune bashing was so fun, and like a roller coaster ride, but we always felt safe with Omar driving. The sand boarding was also a highlight! The camp where you go for the evening bbq was lovely. We had Arabic sweets and tea/coffee on arrival, and dressed up in traditional clothes. The food was so tasty and there was so much of it! The entertainment was amazing, we particularly loved the fire show! I had a henna tattoo on my hand while we were in the camp too, which I love! There was also shisha, camel riding and a falcon to hold at the camp too. Such a great experience, thanks Omar!
