Desert safari with Orient is the worst nightmare for a family since the desert driving was horrible and as a result, my 5-year-old puked inside the car and there were no precautions (plastic bags, etc.) taken. Despite helping us to get ourselves cleaned, the camp manager

Dear Oshadha, Again thank you for sharing your valuable feedback about our Desert Safari with us and our followers. We have investigated your review. We do understand that you are upset and worried as your beloved child was not feeling well during the excursion. A safari including a dune bashing is an adventurous tour that may lead to some people getting sick depending on the individual. We do regret that our multi-awarded safari has lead to your daughter not feeling well. However, we would like to point out that all our drivers are professionally trained and hold desert driving permissions that have to be renewed regularly. Orient Tours does follow all processes and regulations by the different governmental institutions and we therefore cannot agree that "poor driving" has led to your beloved child not feeling well. As you will certainly understand the vehicle had to undergo a deep-cleaning after the incident as we cannot provide the same vehicle to anyone else, including yourself, without it being deep cleaned. We do strongly believe that the small amount of AED150 is a very competitive rate compared with other deep cleaning services in the UAE. As you are aware but unfortunately have missed to mentioned here is that we had to arrange an alternative vehicle for you and your family to bring you back to the city. This was all included in the fee of AED150. The reviews here as well as on TripAdvisor (Orient Tours Dubai) clearly show that everyone praises our services. Further, Orient Tours LLC has ben awarded multiple times in the previous years not only as The Best Desert Safari in the UAE and Middle East but also as The Best DMC in the Middle East by World Travel Awards. We regret that your daughter got sick but would love to clarify that this was not in our hands and that we offered help but all our staffs attempts to assist you were brought down from your end. Best regards, Sarah P. Dubke Manager Guest Services Orient Tours LLC

Our 4x4 car picked us up pretty much on time, it took about an hour to get out of Dubai and experience some dune bashing, camel farm, etc. The driver was very experienced & knowledgeable, he made us feel welcomed and comfortable which was great indeed. Later on in the afternoon
