It was an excellent flight. The pick up was ban on time. The pilot was very experienced and gave a thorough briefing including safety aspects. He kept giving good anecdotes throughout the flight.

Excellent organisation. Very nice views over the mountains. Good explanations from our pilot. Sometimes a bit to high to spot the animals. Quite pricey for the experience. ..but this is Dubai !

Spectacular experience, but be aware there aren't any toilets available once you get to the site. Well worth doing this though as they were very professional and it was amazing to see the sun rise over the dunes.

I was nervous when I first booked not knowing how safe everything would be. But honestly this was the most incredible experience, very safe and exciting. I'm so happy I booked it for my sister and I. I will definitely make another booking in the winter time when the weather cools down. Our pilot Michael Schaefer was fantastic, very informative... More

unforgettable experience watching the sunrise... the staff were very professional, on time for hotel pick-up and the pilot was great! it wasn't a spectacular view from below because you can only see desert but it wasn't a bad terrain either. a must try once in a lifetime experience
