In the last month, I had been to Dubai. On one fine evening, I booked a dhow cruise Abu Dhabi from Thrillophilia. Being the very first transaction, I was able to get loads of discounts and other benefits. The cab arrived at my place at the scheduled time for pickup. The car was very well maintained and the driver was very polite. He dropped me at the Abu Dhabi Dhow Cruise within the scheduled time. Then the experience at the Cruise was just mind-blowing. Loved it to the core and everything was so perfect and filled with luxury.
Few things leave a mark on your life and this desert safari has left its mark on me. The sunset among the sand dunes and the delicious food take you back in time to much simpler days. If you are looking for a life altering experience, do go for the Abu Dhabi desert safari.
I found the Evening desert safari in Abu Dhabi package on Thrillophilia while looking for a desert safari and i have never made a better decision on my holidays. The customer support was really helpful and helped me plan my trip all the way from Delhi to Abu Dhabi with all my itinerary planned. Thank you thrillophilia for this wonderful experience.
The Arabian nights Abu Dhabi desert safari is a gateway into the traditional lifestyle, cuisine and way of the desert. Experience what desert life was all about before the existence of skyscrapers and cities in Arabia.
I am writing this review just as i have reached my hotel room from the Arabian nights Abu Dhabi desert safari. The desert sports can get the adrenalin pumping within no time. I enjoyed the dune bumping and sand boarding a lot and then had a chance to hangout with some majestic falcons which were almost as big as me with their wingspan. The food was fantastic and the whole evening felt surreal.
I recently went on the Abu Dhabi evening desert safari with my partner and 2 kids. The desert safari was one of the best experiences i have had in my life. I have travelled to a lot of places but nothing comes close to this. I would have never found about the safari if not for Thrillophilia. From finding about the safari on the website to the super easy booking process, i can’t thank them enough for i was able to get bookings on such short notice for the very next day.
