It surely was a memorable evening. We enjoyed very much.
Our guide Ansar Anu with OceanAir Travel was wonderful. He was early to the port to pick us up with a clean and well maintained Toyota 4x4. His dune bashing driving skills were impeccable and his music made the journey even better. He stayed with us to ensure we were able to maximize our time to explore by getting us to the front of the line to sand board and to ride the camels. The dinner buffet was plentiful and delicious. There was alcohol for purchase if you wanted. Free shisha, free henna tattoos and also the ability to hold a falcon for pictures. On the way back to the ship our driver took us on a night tour of the city showing us areas we had not been to yet and was full of facts and knowledge. It was a nice extra touch. We were above and beyond pleased with this excursion and later found out that this excursion offered a more personal and enjoyable experience with more included than what was offered on our cruise ship AND we saved over $100 by booking privately!
