Our recent safari and camping experience in Dubai with Ammar tour and guided by wonderful spirit Younus was truly unforgettable. The camel riding was a unique and exhilarating experience, and the dinner buffet under the stars was delicious. The highlight of the night was definitely the fire and belly dancing performance, which left us captivated and entertained. Our journey in Dubai was made even more memorable by the comfortable and reliable Toyota Cruiser provided by Younus. He was punctual, picking us up from our hotel at 2:30 PM, and made sure to drop us back safely at the same hotel by 9 PM. The spacious interior and smooth ride made the travel to and from our destinations a breeze, allowing us to fully immerse ourselves in the safari and camping experience. We were truly grateful for the seamless transportation arrangements and for Younus' attentiveness throughout the entire tour
