Excellent
The Abu Dhabi evening desert safari was a memorable experience. We booked the safari from Thrillophilia for our honeymoon and the whole booking process was really easy and convenient. We got instant confirmation of our booking and the discount they offered was really the icing on the cake as the experience we had for such a low price was really a great bargain.
For the past two years, we have been highly relying on Thrillophilia for all our holidaying experiences. This time, we were desperate to give a try to one of their adventurous trails in Dubai; so, we decided to go for Yas Island and Ferrari World adventure. Everything was well-planned and equally well-executed. We actually had nothing to worry as our team leader was very kind at heart. In the beginning itself, we were briefed about the ins and outs of our 3-day tour across the Yas Island, Ferrari World, and Warner Bros. Out of all the rides and attractions that we witnessed, I loved the Formula Rossa ride which is acknowledged to be their chief attraction. For a hassle-free online booking and a well-guided tour execution, I highly recommend connecting with Thrillophilia team.
Thrillophilia’s customer service was out of the box. This was our first experience with their team. As it was our first outing itself after marriage, we decided to go for something adventurous. After scrolling through their website, at first, we were a bit confused. However, later we had a thorough discussion with their customer support team to arrive on a final conclusion on our choice of holidaying destination. Their catalog of adventurous activities within and beyond India is quite exploratory. Finally, we settled on Yas Island as it was their off-season, and huge discounts were being showered on the entry tickets. We are now leaving for our Yas Island Tour. We will definitely share our reviews about the location and travel experience with Thrillophilia team to help you all with your selection. Bye.
We have recently availed Thrillophilia’s one day Yas World tour in a group of 5 close friends, and it was a fun-filled adventure for all of us. There was no need to visit their office in person, and we were quite comfortable in pre-booking our tour through their online web portal itself. The best experience with Thrillophilia is that they have everything mentioned about every single activity or place of your holiday interest on their web portal itself. You need not go anywhere; it is that crystal clear. The next best experience was that it was a guided tour where our team leader was a highly active and self-motivated person. He made sure that we did not miss any of the important rides or attractions there at the park. Moreover, he was sincere, punctual, cordial, and a very professional team leader I met till date. In the end, it was all bundled in a budgeted package.
Finally, today, we had the opportunity of booking a visit to Yas Island and Ferrari World Abu Dhabi with Thrillophilia. I don’t know about my companions, but personally, I feel satisfied with Thrillophilia’s package. Our package was a combo entry treat to both the Yas Island and Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. Though the combo pack was tagged with an MRP of 6199 INR per head, we got it at a discounted price of 4999 per head. What made the package a better choice from the rest of their market competitors is their inclusions – pick-up and drop facilities, transports, and activities to enjoy there. On their website, you have everything displayed about all their tour packages, which facilitate every customer to pick the right choice for their wallet. If at all you need any clarification for your respective selection, you may always seek assistance from their customer support team. So, for a hassle-free Yas Island and Ferrari World experience, I highly recommend you to connect with Thrillophilia touring partner.
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.
