I spent a lot of time researching which company to use for the desert safari as there was so much choice.
I am really glad I chose orient tours who gave the best price and really good service.
As other reviews have said, they do want payment upfront and scan details of the credit card. I was apprehensive about this and they agreed that I could pay on the day.
I phoned up the day before to confirm and they made a slight change to the time.
On the day they picked me up at the agreed time. The driver let us know the itinerary for the day then along the way he would point out various points and answer any questions we had.
The cars all meet up at a point where they would let down the air in the tyres. We would then do the dune bashing for about an hour with various stops for photos in between. It was really good fun.
We then went to a camel farm, this wasn't anything fancy.
We then went to the camp where you could have a camel ride, sandboarding, henna, shisha at no extra cost compared to other companies which charge for aspects of this.
You then could have unlimited soft drinks. The performance by a male performer and a belly dancer would start and in between you would have a buffet meal.
orient had their own camp and at the time it wasn't very busy, but that didn't bother me as I could get served really quick.
After this, the driver would then pick us all up and take us back to our hotel.
