Thanks a lot, Thrillophilia for curating this perfect itinerary in Abu Dhabi for visitors.
Bankim Kaur Abu Dhabi Dhow Cruise
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.
DEEPA MAGHNANI Abu Dhabi City Tour
"Abu dhabi is a great city. compared to dubai it is more peaceful. it is a must to do thing. our tour guide had enough knowledge. only thing i disliked was time allotted to visit each site. u cannot visit a mall in 20 minutes."
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.
Lakshminath Iyer Desert Safari Abu Dhabi
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.
Somnath Nehru Desert Safari Abu Dhabi
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.
Uttam Kaniyar Desert Safari Abu Dhabi
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.
