This “premium “ experience is an absolute joke. The alleged dune bashing can be done better on a push bike. I’ve done better 4WD experiences on a flat bus fling site in Perth, what a joke. When you arrive at the dirty camp, all the extras are in American dollars! Why is this the

Response from ABCTOU, General Manager at Premium Desert Safari, Barbeque, 3 Shows, Camel ride, Sandboard at Majlis camp
Responded 3 days ago
Sorry, we understand you are not a genuine reviewer. As per your profile you just created a profile to review against us and you only have this review. If you have experienced our services you cannot write such a review.. for us it is a joke - as you say you are right whereas all other reviewers are wrong ...!!!!! Isn't it a joke ??? We trust that you never been sitting at our camp premises, possibly anywhere else or maybe at backyards. We are very confident of our services. It is a camp not running with a profit motivation, where as ABC Tours Majilis camp do it as a service to promote our products. We take this chance to compare with our counterparts. 1) While others accommodate 1000 person our campsite; we limit our guest to maximum of 50-100 person per evening to offer more personalised services. WHERE ABC TOURS OWNED MAJILIS CAMP IS THE BIGGEST CAMP IN DUBAI. 2) When others offer 5-7 minutes drive from road to camp and back, We ABC Tours offer a full and complete roller coaster ride in the desert. In-order to do so we drive 50-70 kms from Dubai city into the best desert of Dubai. 3) Your comparison with Perth safari perfectly matching with the safari with other companies who bring the people by ordinary buses. Its seems you may have been outside our camp premises as you may not have seen other enjoying the dinner and programs !
