Niaz was fantasy Tux . We had an absolute fantastic time . He picked us promptly and communicated well with us through out the afternoon. Got us to experience sand boarding . The Safari itself is absolutely fun.. He is fantastic. The only downside to is the camel ride as all the camels are chained together . The tour itself is fantastic minus camel rides . BBQ was delicious. The belly dancing and other shows were great . We had the best time. Next time i come I want Niaz to be our guide

Abbas was very friendly and accommodating. When my 4-year-old felt car sick, he was patient and stopped the car, allowing for my son to feel better. He provided cold drinking water. He took the time to take tons of photos of everyone on the tour and helped with posing people, making for the the perfect pics. We didn’t feel rushed. This tour was my son’s favorite.
