"Breathtaking Experience"

Trust me, the ride on the dunes that I’ve experienced was electrifying but the favorite part of the safari for me was the exquisite food served in the desert camp. You could even starve for more enjoyment, that’s what I experienced after the performances by the Tanoura and Belly dancers, I was awestruck. The best tour package I have ever come across in Dubai. Spectacular service OceanAir Travels, thank you.

"Deserts are Undoubtedly amazing!!!"

It was my second visit to Dubai but still, I didn't feel like that. The city has changed a lot within 3 years. I think this is among those few cities that undergoes a continuous transformation. Yet the desert remains the same and excitement never ends. I just love the Fossil Rock Safari at Dubai.

"We still miss us !!!"

It was our honeymoon trip and we were so excited about it. Dune Bashing at Dubai was so thrilling. The funniest moment of our trip was the camel riding activity. We just felt like those moments bonded us even closer. Thank you for your kind service.
