A fantastic trip, picked up from our accommodation in a clean comfortable land cruiser. Had a short camel ride, which was enjoyable and not very long. After refreshments taken for an amazing drive through the dunes, exceeded expectations with some proper dune bashing with very steep descents. Superb scenery as well. Finished off with a sled down a dune then a gentler drive back through the dunes to the road home. A definate 10/10 and superb value for money. I have already recommended it to a few of my freinds.

Booked this trip last minute with my sister since we are transiting in Doha and it was the best decision we made. Our guide, Jawid (sorry if I spelled it wrong) was really friendly, accommodating, and fun! He made the trip so lovely and answered all our curious questions. The whole experience itself was memorable and truly an experience you have to go through at least once in your life! I love that it’s private and so we can go at our own pace. Thank you so much!

One of the most beautiful experience I have ever seen. Tour guide was very helpful and understanding. Thank you so much.

The experience was great! I have so much fun during the trip! Really recommend for anyone who visit Qatar to try this.

I had a good experience in desert with him. He was so kind and do his best to make good memories to us.
