This was an absolutely incredible experience in Dubai. Our driver, Jafar, was phenomenal and attended to all of our needs. He started by picking us up at our hotel. He was right on time to pick us up. We had about a 40-45 minute drive to the desert. Even though I was excited to dune bash, I was pretty nervous. I mentioned to Jafar that I was nervous to go dune bashing and he said that it would be fun and not to worry. Jafar definitely made it fun for us both, but he also made sure he was making us comfortable as well. He knew I was nervous to have the car tip and he was being very cautious while still giving us a great time. TIP: If you get motion sick easily like me, I would highly recommend taking motion sickness medication ahead of time. I would have definitely gotten sick without taking it. After about 15-20 minutes of dune bashing, Jafar pulled over to take beautiful pictures of us in the desert as the sun was setting. He was an AMAZING photographer! I could not believe how many angles and how many photos he took of us! Extra points to Jafar on this one. After a 15 minute break, we did another 15-20 minutes of dune bashing. After that, Jafar dropped us off close by while he set up a carpet with real champagne (Charles de LaRoche) and strawberries. Little did I know, that my boyfriend of 6.5 years was about to propose. My boyfriend proposed while we were looking at the sunset and appreciating all of the beauty of the desert. It was absolutely magical. After about 30 minutes, Jafar drove by and took some pictures of us with the sunset! He was wonderful and told us to take our time and there was no rush. We were able to fully enjoy the experience before we took off for dinner! The rest of the experience was great, but nothing could have beat the sunset for us. We went to the beoudin camp where we had dinner, there were three fire shows as well as shisha at our table. We were also able to ride a camel. We arrived to the camp later than everyone else due to the proposal and champagne, but Jafar was very patient and allowed us to take as many photos and take our time while we were there. Once we were finished and ready to leave, Jafar started the journey back home. When we were in the car, the Arooha contact, Munas, called my NOW fiance to ask how the proposal went on Jafar's phone. It was so special to call and ask how it went. It was overall a very personal experience and we felt like they really cared about us throughout the entire trip. We could not recommend Arooha and Jafar enough for this experience. It is worth every penny!

We booked 20 minutes of MICROFLIGHT at the Jazirah AVIATION CLUB in Ras AL Khaimah via Mr Munas of Arooha Tours. Right from enquiry, he adhered to all my queries, demands and made sure everything was ready in time. The staff at the Aviation Club were hospitable, friendly and well trained. They guided us well and trained too. We had the best experince as I surprised my husband by gifting him a FLYING EXPERIENCE on his birthday! The Pilot trained him and let him fly as well! It was marvelous & all credit goes to Mr Munas for organizing it all so well!!

A must visit place for those seeking to take a break from the hustle and bustle of Dubai. This is a place of nature, calm and tranquility. The lake and dam and its surrounding mountains are of such phenomenal beauty that one has to visit to experience it. Me and my wife visited it for the first time and were amazed at this natural wonder. Slowly kayaking in the lake is the perfect way to relax and absorb the tranquil atmosphere. The heritage village is a nice addition to the trip and takes you back in time to the old days and a good place to understand bedouin culture and heritage. The drive from Dubai and back is also scenic as the road is carved through mountains and was made even more pleasant by our guide Ganesh, who was very friendly and an amazing person. Overall it was a very memorable experience.

Booked this trip in advance via TripAdvisor for myself and my 10 year old son and we both really enjoyed it. There was a small hiccup in the beginning in that we were in reception at the agreed time of 3pm and our driver also turned up dead on time, but he told us that there were two other guests at our hotel that were going on the trip so we had to wait for them. For the next half an hour we sat in reception whilst he wandered around trying to locate the other guests and making several phone calls to his office. This was a little annoying as we were only in RAK for 4 days and wanted to make the most of it and sitting in reception for over half an hour was not part of that plan (and, by now, my son was getting bored). It was not our driver’s fault and he did keep apologising and reassuring us and was very friendly. Finally he received a phone call and told us we would go, but when we got into the jeep we just sat in the car park for another 5 or 6 minutes whilst he waited for his office again to call him, which they did, and at that point they gave instructions that we should go without the other passengers, however when we did set off he received yet another call to say the other two people had been found and were at a totally different hotel – half an hour’s drive away! So we had a further half hour drive from our hotel to theirs to pick them up (when we got there they said they had had to stand at their hotel for over an hour waiting – so not ideal for them either). However, that aside we finally set off and our driver certainly was excellent. It was ideal in that the other two passengers in the car were a mother and her 8 year old daughter so our kids got on and so did we. Firstly we drove to what was called a “camel farm” although all it was was a few camels in a pen in the distance which we could take photos of from behind the fence). We hung around here for 10 minutes whilst our driver busied himself letting air out of the jeep’s tyres, so not sure what the point of this stop was – the itinerary had said this would be a half hour stop with the guide explaining about different camels, but I’m guessing that because we had about an hour delay at the beginning that this part of the itinerary had to be cut. However, the fun finally started as we set off for about 20 minutes racing through the desert, bumping and sliding over sand dunes (stopping to take photos of camels along the way) – the kids loved it and squealed with delight. We then stopped for about 20 minutes in the middle of the desert to take some photographs. This was excellent and we got some really good shots and the driver also took some for us, plus the kids enjoyed running up and down the dunes before we set off again. Unfortunately the other little girl started to feel sick with all the bumping so we had to then take it easy on the last part of the drive to the camp. We arrived at the camp at 5.40pm and were told that the entertainment would start at 6.20pm. At this point there was only one other couple at the camp and we did feel a little hassled – firstly a man followed us the whole time taking video and photos, then they tried to sell us a quad bike ride (which we did not want) and then they put headscarves on us (which we again realised they wanted to sell us, and the man was a little annoyed when we took them off and politely told him that we did not want them). The kids were keen to get on the camels so we went straight for the camel ride (which was actually just a 5 minute walk in a circle!). They make sure that you don’t have time to take your own photos and as soon as we got off the camels the man who had been taking photos led us to a screen and was trying to sell us photos and videos – in the end the other lady bought one for her daughter and I bought one for my son (one photo cost 50 Dirham which is about £10). They then made a last attempt at selling us some other items, which we declined so we were then left to our own devices. The children found the sand board and spent about 15 minutes trying to use it but there was nobody to show them how to do it and it was very large and they were very light and it just did not really move at all, which was a bit of a shame. By now three other groups of people had arrived and we were told to take our seats and collect some buffet snacks (these were very tasty – samosas, chips etc) plus there was a bar where you could collect soft drinks. Then the entertainment begun – and, have to say, this was really good. The first act was a fire eater and he pulled several people onto the stage to assist – including me - which was an experience! Then came the belly dancer – she was excellent, and again she got everybody up on to the stage to join in, making it really good fun. After this was a short break where we could get a henna tattoo on our hand (a simple design was free – that it what we opted for, or you could pay extra to have a more complex one). The dinner buffet was then served. There was plenty of choice and the food was very tasty. After we had eaten the next act was a Whirling Dirvish, and again I had the chance to have a go (and got rather dizzy). The show was, indeed, well worth it and we then had time afterwards to sit around the fire and have sheesha before heading back to the hotel. All in all it was a good trip for the money it is just a shame that there was the delay at the beginning, that the stop at the camel farm was little more than standing around for 10 minutes with some camels in the background, that the camel ride itself was so short, that the sandboarding was a bit of a disappointment and that there was some slight hassling to purchase things. But the drive through the desert, the entertainment and the food were excellent, and, for the money we did have a good time.
