sarafrancesr, 21-12-2022
This desert safari was one of the best experiences that we, as a family, have ever had. Our guide, Inaam, was the best. He was knowledgeable, experienced, and was so great with our 3 children. This experience would not have been the same without him!
We thought going into this, that 6 hours was going to be way too long, but it was perfect. The dinner and entertainment at the end was fantastic. Everything about this experience exceeded all of our expectations!! As my youngest said at one point, "This is the best day of my life!!"
Best experience in Dubai

itarraja24, 21-12-2022
Our overall experience in today’s desert safari with tour company OCEAN AIR TRAVELS was excellent and we fully enjoyed our trip. They were thoroughly progressional - online booking, regular communications, pickup & drop and overall guidance during the trip. Our tour guide Mr. ZAHID HUSSAIN was fantastic. He was professional, very helpful, caring and informative. He reached our hotel ahead of time for pick up, guided as well throughout the trip, waited patiently at all sight seeing points, offered help where ever required and dropped us back at our hotel on time. Strongly recommend both OCEAN AIR TRAVELS and MR. ZAHID HUSSAIN
