The driver arrived on time, he spoke good English, was really friendly and showed us local sights en route to the sand dunes. The 4X4 experience on the sand dune was fun but a bit short. Sandboarding is slower than snowboarding so it's easier for novices but you would have to be very fit to descend many times as you have to walk back up the sand dune with the board in the heat and every step forward you took, the sand would give underneath you so you would slide back. We only managed to descend 3 times as the walk back up was so exhausting.
Awesome experience, highly recommend it! But it does not take half a day (the 4 hours they advertise with), unless you're a sandboarding addict.

The sand dune bashing and dinner were good - but I loved sleeping under the stars and the long discussion with Bobby (our guide) over a fire the next morning.

Had a great time on 1001 Arabian Stars tour 6th-7th April 2010. Dune bashing was exciting, never done this before! Lovely evening meal, good to have a bar, fun to sit on a camel- never done this before either. We were somewhat surprised to find that we were the only ones staying overnight- ie camping. We thought everyone would be doing this.Whilst this made it an all the more unique experience, and we were given a cosy little mini tent to sleep in, it was a little disconcerting to hear weird, wild noises in the night- wonder what animals were out there??.. and just us! Also, whilst the belly dancer was great and the show enjoyable we would have liked this to have gone on longer- it seemed everything stopped rather early. However it was inspiring to see the sun rise from a dune above the camp. Thank you for a lovely experience.

You only know what you get when things go wrong. In our case we had a tyre failure on the dunes. The driver changed the wheel in 10 minutes insomething of a sandstorm.A great effort.The trip to Hatta was well worth doing as well. Would definitely recommendit as a day out.

We had a nice trip, a good driver, but missed informations about the trip. We had to to ask to see the camel market, which actually was included in the tour. We also could have wished informations about the place with the falejs where we could have loved to spend more time. Didnt know there wasnt anything to do on the top of the mountains.

Our guide had lived for 3 years in Al Ain and he drove us for the best sights in the city and surroundings.It was very interesting to visit a traditional city in the UAE,escaping from the modernity of Abu Dhabi and Dubai cities.We had the opportunity to know about Sheick Zayed,which house is now a museum,who was the first president of the UAE.We also visited some fortresses and the oasis where part of the city is located.

The whole afternoon was 100% with the pick up from the hotel to the Yacht and Cruise which I could not fault and the delivery back to my Hotel. I would recommend it to anyone as it was the best experience during my 8 weeks holiday. What a way to celebrate my 70th birthday.

Please let your customers know they will get wet as there is only room for 4-5 peoole sit on a bench in the middle where you don't get drenched. Others have to sit out on the deck and bow where you get wet and sprayed so you need to wear swimwear or sit underneath which I don't recommend as you couldn't see anything and it would be very hot. The Captain was nice and you could see the Atlantis fairly close. The world you couldn't get any pictures of as we didn't go out that far. Snacks were a few dates, pretzels and nuts in a small bowl shared by 14 people. It was a nice trip and we enjoyed it but a little pricey for what you saw. Carol Gurke
