This experience doesn't have reviews yet, but see what other travellers said about the provider.
It would have been great to have received an email or call confirming the pick-up time, instead I had to call the provider to find out the pick-up time, not a good start given we were being collected at 7am.
On the day, we waited for our instructor/driver to meet us in the lobby, only to be greeted by an unhappy man. The man claimed he had been calling our room many times but we obviously didn't respond as we were in the lobby waiting. Nonetheless, the man wasn't happy with us. We started the journey which was fine and they were pleasant until they started playing some incredibly explicit R-rated rap songs about women being objectified in the bedroom, whilst I appreciate it may have been on the radio - change the radio station! As a woman, I felt so uncomfortable and had I not been with another member, I would have asked to return to the hotel.
The tour itself ie. Quad Biking, Dune-Bashing etc was good, however, as I felt so uncomfortable by the driver partner, we returned early.
I would recommend this company for men only as I don't believe it is right for women, given my experience.
It seems like this was the first tour for them. People were standing around with no seating and the waiters did not even advise food was ready. The buffet was not lit up so I had to use my mobile phone flashlight to see the food i was putting on ny plate.
We had a good city tour guide, who gave us a good overview of the places we visited. However, we did not end up doing all the places that was listed in our Iternary.
The desert safari was great and we had a great driver.
This was a really cool experience. The dune bashing was awesome and we had a great driver, the entertainment with dinner was excellent. However, I would have liked the camp to stay open a little longer. If you wanted to visit the camels, etc. you had to miss the dancers. As soon as the dancers were done, everything packed up so I missed out on the henna and the falcon. The staff who stayed on the campsite were incredibly helpful and friendly. I would recommend this as a fun experience for Dubai.
The actual day was wonderful but the tour guide on the boat seemed to be more interested in having his own holiday and made barely any contact with the 3 solo travellers on the boat this day including myself and preferred to spend his time lounging on a sofa at the back of the boat or interacting with the young, gorgeous girls. Very unprofessional. E.g. when line fishing he was more interested in catching his own fish than helping the kids who were unsure of how to do it etc. However, the views were absolutely incredible and lunch was delicious. I would definitely go again. Would be 5 stars if the boat operator had not left his poor indian staff to do ALL the work while just lying around unprofessionally.
This tour was interesting. The tour guide made it, he was terrific. Tour itself was interesting as we had only just arrived so a good way to see a little of Dubai first. Bring plenty of water, a hat and good sunglasses, it's incredibly hot
I got up at 6:00 to get picked up from my hotel at 6:30. We were in Oman in 11:40. Six hours to collect all the passengers from their hotels and reach the port?? Disaster!
Now for the trip: the boat was old, some of the railings on the top board were broken. The music someone played wasn't suitable for all the visitors for Indian people may be, but I am from Bulgaria and I prefer to listen something more appropriate for a boat trip. The snorkeling gear wasn't enough for everyone, some of the life vests were torn and probably unsafe.
The beach itself is rocky, so get yourself fins.
The food, however, was delicious, may be the only good think on this trip.
And the fishing..... oh, the fishing : This is the worst part ever. I admire when fisherman get on their boats to provide for their family, or to provide for other people. But fishing for fun is not the right entertainment, at least for me.
And HERE comes my worst experience on the boat and not only mine: one of the passengers caught a water snake. The snake was tangled to the fishing cord and was suffering, may be even suffocating. The skipper grabbed a knife and just cut the cord without releasing the suffering animal. And one of the tour guides I don't know his role, actually just said what can I do, man?.
So, the conclusion is, that I cannot recommend this trip to anyone: the ship is old and the crew cannot suppress it's barbaric habits. The beach is the worst I've seen ever and the whole experience wasn't worth the money.
This was such an amazing experience. If you are an American looking for adventure, this is definitely the tour for you. The activities on this tour had a lot of variety, from snorkeling to banana boat riding to taking a smaller boat to the beach or simply relaxing on the boat. Lunch was amazing, and had a lot of variety-- and of course, loads for seconds! i encourage anyone to really get to know others on the tour. I ended up becoming friends with a lovely woman and her husband from Brazil, and also ended up being in a big group of people dancing on the main deck! Our little soiree included people from Singapore, India, and the UAE. We had a great time, and I still keep in touch with most everyone!
