desert safari in 4X4

I had a long layover at Dubai Airport so I thought of booking a day tour and called Viator, the representative was very helpful, found a last min tour and made arrangements for pickup/dropoff. It was definitely worth it, super glad I picked this tour. The tour was very organized, clean camp, fun desert safari, good food (options of vegetarians as well), our guide was very informative, and kept us engaged from the beginning til end of the tour.
