Tag Along Packages (Dubai/Abu Dhabi)

Self Drive and Tag Along Packages from Dubai & Other Emirates


Owners of 4×4 can now take advantage of this Tag Along / Self Drive service by hiring our specialized and expert desert marshals to lead their convoys. If you have ever joined the Gulf News fun drive, or any other desert adventure, you probably know what is in stake! the only difference is you do not need to join the “mass” but design your own itinerary with your own friends. In addition to offering guidance and support you will take advantage of cargo space to load your camping and picnic material into our 4×4.

Now, whether you are with your family, office colleagues or friends and you want to celebrate your birthday, wedding anniversary, corporate gatherings, family picnics and camping, you can call us to organize an exclusive outing just for you.
