I Enjoyed The Dubai Trip Very Much!

I enjoyed the Dubai trip very much. I would like to give my feedback on the trip.
I really appreciate the way you arranged for my VISA in a short span, when even I doubted if it will be possible.
You helped me a lot answering all my queries. At times I called you even on non working hours, because I desperately needed help and you understood that I was on a Foreign land and you didn't hesitate in taking my calls. Thanks a lot for your help.
The tourist agents were polite and they were very helpful. 
The attractions were good. I enjoyed  desert safari very much. The travel agency's camp there was good as well.

Uttarayan In Desert Is Wonderful Experience
Uttarayan In Desert Is Wonderful Experience

Uttarayan In Desert Is Wonderful Experience

We enjoyed the Dubai tour with flamingo and also recommend the people. All the services from booking to end of tour was wonderful. I also recommend the people please do not compare the price but see the quality and compare apple to apple.
Initially Maitri give the nice response of every email and phone call. Even though due to time difference I called her after work hours and her response is quick and nice.  I booked this tour in short time but her quick response makes my planning faster.  Only thing I like to suggest please scan the all papers of kit and send to us (It will reduce our Google search because in book you guys give nice information).
Once we arrived at Dubai Aarti did wonderful job specially to handle 37 different head with smiling face. She organizes nicely and whatever the issue she tries to resolve quickly. Aarti treat the people as Sister, Uncle, Aunt and friend with respect to age of person.  Choice of hotel and food are superb.  Especially I like her surprise for food and hotel for dinner. Uttarayan in Desert is wonderful experience. She tries to give enough time at each place.
I do not know much about flamingo but with my first experience of Dubai trip, I am sure flamingo should have proud of Maitri and Aarti as an employee. 
Our best wishes to both of you.
