  • 2. Desert Safari

    4 out of 5 stars

    While most people told me to choose any company since they are all the same, I now know better. I chose Arabian Adventures and regretted. It was chaotic and we did not get much while there were many...

  • 5. Gold Souq

    4 out of 5 stars

  • 11. Skiing & Snowboarding

    4.5 out of 5 stars
