We had the best experience both with the agency and the trip! The agency made it happen for us to experience the desert while all the others canceled on us because of the number of people, and it was our last day in Riyadh. They made sure everything was going as planned and that we were happy with the trip. The host was introducing us to the Arabian culture and the quad and camel ride was awsome!

I was booking 2 trips for a large group of people and the agency was patient and efficient in helping me accomplish this despite issues on my end. Abdullah was incredibly personable and had an obvious love for the service he provided

The booking and communication was prompt and straightforward. Abdullah, the guide, followed up with whatsapp message once the booking went through. The quad bike ride was very fun, and the on-site guide followed around for a while and then let us go around the desert on our own with whatsapp livetracking on. Thank you for everything and highly recommended!

The entire experience was super fun! Abdula is an amazing host! The quad bike riding in the dunes is an amazing thing to do!



Abdullah is awesome. My girlfriend and I chose to do this event and we were very happy we did. Abdullah was a super guide and he even picked us up at our place! He is knowledgeable and up front about everything. When you arrive things might be intimidating (if you were by yourself) but Abdullah takes care of everything! Just sit back and enjoy your time. Highly recommend!

it was wonderful. once we figured out the quads, all was good. we kind of wish the camel rides were longer though. thank you for the experience! we did absolutely have a blast.

Such a great experience, quad biking thru the Riyadh desert watching the sun go down is something else. Abdullah went out of his way to pick me up and take me to the airport as it was my last day in Riyadh. Great person and gave me a brief history lesson on the recent changes in KSA. 5 stars, well worth it!

التجربة كانت رائعة ومميزة جدا شكرا جزيلا فيافي و عبدالله

We had such an amazing experience in Thumamah Desert! Abdullah was so nice, he pick us up and bring us back at our hotel. The transfer to the desert was very confortable in a luxury car. It was my first time on a camel and I really enjoyed it! The quad ride was amazing! More than one hour through the dunes...pure adrenaline! We also enjoyed a wonderful sunset. Truly recommended experience. Thank you!
