          Must do dessert safari!!
          Amazing experience!! Definitely a must do in Dubai and with Ocean Air. We booked directly with them and we got lucky cause our driver was Waleed Abbas…. Request him if you are booking with Ocean Air. He made our experience quite unforgettable. He picked us up from our hotel and from the moment we started the excursion, he took care us and our comfort during the whole evening. We did a customized excursion, which you can do if you book directly with them. We opted for the Quad bike option followed by the Al Khayma Camp dinner/show.. Highly recommend the camp as well as Waleed!!!! He took amazing care of us and made it an unforgettable experience.

          Denise was a fantastic guide. We went quad biking then took some pictures. In the quad bike area there’s a place where you can get your name inscribed in arabic, don’t buy it there!! Buy it at the stall when you go to the camp after, the necklaces are much dainter/pretty. The camp was wonderful, the food amazing and the show fantastic! Great experience overall, I highly recommend this experience to any traveller in Dubai

          A 5-star Desert Safari Adventure
          We enjoyed an exceptional desert safari experience offered by Ocean Air Travel and Tours. Thanks to our best tour guide Karim who gave us a 5 star service as we got to do thrilling activities like ATV rides and sandboarding with the serene beauty of the desert landscape. The camel ride, the view of the sunset, the stargazing experience under the desert sky and the 5-star BBQ at Al Khayma Camp is a delicious way to conclude the adventure. We also got the chance to meet and make new friends from USA, Brazil and Switzerland who flew a thousand miles to visit Dubai.

        The tour was really nice and the guide Adnan was even better. To begin with, he is very polite, patient, smart, punctual and knows everything you could ask about UAE. The car was also really clean.
        He was very very kind, gave great and detailed explanations about the places we were visiting and also about the history of the country. I was with my mom who doesnt understand english but is still really curious to know about the places we were visiting and Adnan would kindly wait for me to translate everything to her in out language, always asking if she understood what he was explaining. He also helped us a lot by providing proper clothing to go inside the Abu Dhabi Mosque, also giving necessary information on how we should behave inside to avoid problem and have a nice experience.
        Another amazing thing was that he was flexible about our timing inside each stop, telling us to feel free to enjoy a little bit extra time in case we felt like we needed more time to appreciate everything.
        He also has no rush and puts effort into taking amazing pictures and videos for us, which he has great new pose ideas.
        My mom also asked if we could pass by the Louvre Museum and he did, even though it was not in our itinerary.
        The tour itself is amazing and we were able to see the best of Abu Dhabi, specially the Al Qasar Buildings which is definitely the most beautiful and unique architecture and design we’ve ever seen in our whole lives.
        Would totally recommend the tour, specially if Adnan is your guide.

        Absolutely breath taking. Hassan our tour guide was just brilliant, charismatic, very knowledgeable and respectful. He did a great job of informing us about UAE history and culture the entire drive to Abu Dhabi and throughout the tour, and as a solo girl traveller I felt super safe and taken care of from start to finish. The tour groups are smaller so it’s easier to get around and not waste time moving with larger crowds of groups.

        Everything was well paced - from the mosque tour, to the presidential palace, to the towers overlooking Dubai. There was more than enough time to take photos and videos. Tip: make sure you bring a charger (wireless or with a wire - both are fine because the presidential palace has loads of UK plug sockets).

        It’s quite a long day (I was picked up from my hotel at at 8:15am and was dropped back at around 7pm) so eat breakfast!

        You’re also not allowed to bring in things like makeup or liquids in the mosque so be mindful of that. And no posing, holding hands or showing skin of course when inside the mosque.

        As a woman, you’re required to cover yourself from head to toe when you enter the mosque but don’t worry about buying the traditional wear as the tour guide provides you with it all (and even wraps your head for you!)

        As a man, you need to make sure your arms and legs are covered (your thoughts and knee caps shouldn’t be showing). You’re also provided with traditional gowns if you want to wear them.

        My only red flag is that there’s no meal covered in the tour package which doesn’t make sense to me for such a long day of touring. You have to pay for your food and we were taken to a camel meat restaurant. If you don’t want to eat at the camel meat restaurant they take you to halfway through tour, make sure you pick up some food in the mosque shopping mall after you’ve toured it. They’ve got a McDonald’s, Boots, Subway and other more traditional restaurants there.

        The Etihad Towers have the most stunning views of Dubai, and you get to see all the places you just visited from so high up. It’s breathtaking.

        Definitely a worth while tour and great use of a full day - just need to subsidise lunch!

        Very nice and smooth trip, fully complying with what was advertised. We had light traffic and they added some non scheduled stops for some photos like the Louvre museum and the Corniche. Our guide Hassan was informative, helpful and adaptive to some specific needs of our group. He moved quickly to avoid queues, collecting tickets for the group and allow us quick entrance to all the advertised places. He was very resourceful with a problem with a PCR test in the Dubai - Abu Dhabi test control, he saved the day!.

        Today's trip was one of the most interesting days in Dubai. Thanks to our guide Abdul, we visited the most majestic places of Abu Dhabi. It was an incredible journey that amazed us with the luxury, beauty and grandeur of the Muslim religion. At the same time, Abdul helped us throughout the pre-fight, told us historical moments, took pictures himself, which he did very professionally. After visiting the official places, he took us to a very good cafe, where he introduced us to the traditional Vrab cuisine, very tasty and for quite affordable money. Thanks to the company and personally to Abdul for a great day!!!

        This was a great introduction to Abu Dhabi. All of the stops were equally interesting and valuable to see and we learned so much and our guide, Iqbal, was very knowledgeable and informative.

        The tour starts at the grand mosque center. This is a beautiful landmark and Iqbal made sure we all understood a bit about the religion and how the mosque is used. From there we visited Etihad Towers for a view of the city. There is a lunch stop on the tour but lunch is not included in the price. There are a few options offered by the guides and for about $20 USD we enjoyed a traditional buffet style lunch. From there we visited the presidential palace and concluded the day.

        I highly recommend taking this tour to see the highlights of the area and better understand the capital city.

        One note: ladies, be sure to wear a long dress/skirt and have a way to cover to your wrists. The tour provides abayas and scarves but you can bring your own/come prepared if you prefer to wear your own clothes.

        The full day Abu Dhabi trip (English tour) with Travel Tours is very highly recommended and offers real value for money. The booking process online was easy at very competitive prices compared to other companies.

        You will receive an email booking confirming straight away along with regular updates on what is required, we had PCR tests arranged through Ocean Travel and all went smoothly at competitive prices.

        Our tour guide Mohammad Iqbal was really good always providing really useful information all along the trip, he was very knowledgeable on the history of both Dubai and Abu Dhabi. He would always welcome our questions and was always happy to share his extensive knowledge.

        Both the Sheikh Zayed Mosque & Qasr Al Watan Palace were splendid, amazing architecture and again detailed information being provided by Mohammad about these iconic places.

        Overall, an amazing trip definitely the highlight of our holiday from an easy booking process along with timely pick up and drop off time. A trip to Abu Dhabi with Ocean Travel Tours and Mohammad as your guide will be memorable and you will enjoy it thoroughly.

        The tour was complete in every aspect. Sameh, our guide, was explaining everything as clear as possible, he fulfilled all of our curiosities about UAE history and culture. He also brought us to a local restaurant where we could taste few local dishes at a very cheap rate. 10/10, an amazing experience all around.

        Amazing experience! Sheikh Zayed mosque, the Etihad towers and also the Presidential Palace (Qasr Al Watan) were beautiful places to visit. This was the most memorable day of our honeymoon!

        What made the experience even better was our tour guide Haseeb Khan. He was very knowledgeable about Abu Dhabi and all the sites we visited. He was very kind, professional, and very approachable to answer any questions. Also a great photographer!

        I would recommend booking this tour, and also would recommend you request the organisers for Haseeb to be your tour guide!

        Maaz Khan was amazing!! We loved the tour and how knowledgeable Maaz was. He was very prompt in picking us up. He explained a great deal in terms of Dubai/Abu Dhabi’s histories and the various landmarks we visited. The planning was exemplary — he timed our various visits so that we could avoid the crowds and the rush (which gave us more time and was also appreciated in the context of COVID). The tour felt relaxed, informative, and well organized. It was so worth it!! We couldn’t have done any of this on our own. Thank you Maaz!!
