Dubai, United Arab Emirates
I have to say the 4 x 4 sand riding portion of the excursion was fun. We then moved on to see a group of female camels for about 10 minutes to take pictures. From there we moved on to the camp to take a 3 minute ride on a camel. Then you got to sand board if you wished. You could also get a henna tattoo and the person doing the tattoos was not very friendly and looked like she was forced to be there. The photo opportunity with the falcon was ok, the falcon handler was much more pleasant than the henna tattoo girl. The food surprisingly was very good and I am a picky eater. They did have to work on trying to keep the flies off of the food. Their "grand finale" was a bit lame. They have a Ukraine tattooed belly dancer???? Was not what I imagined for a belly dancer. Our driver who was great overall, looked as if he was on a race to get us back to the hotel in the evening. Was the scariest ride of my life. Overall so so. Wear sunblock, there are alot of photo opportunities and that sun will burn the heck out of you easily. Don't worry about trying to look cute, I learned the hard way. Nothing cute about being in the 108 degree F heat and trying to take pictures.
