Super well - done! 4x4 cars were modern, AC, high performance. The Jeep Safari was exhilarating as we surfed the dunes in the 4x4 ride! The camel ride was really fun, food at the camp was delicious and the belly dancing show was very professional.

My husband happily rode the quad bikes at an extra fee which he thoroughly enjoyed.

The only two things I would change:

1 The driver could not speak English - so whenever we asked questions, we didnt get a reply. The last time I went to a similar experience with another company from Dubai, the driver spent the whole trip passing on information about the traditions of the people.

2 The sand boarding equipment was very unprofessional - just a skate board converted into a sandboard using some bandages - we refused to risk trying it. On a similar trip, as mentioned above, a professional sand board with professional straps like ski equipment would have was used and it was a fantastic experience.

Otherwise the tour passed like a dream :-

The tour was amazing! From start, when they came to pick us up from the hotel, until they dropped us back to there. I have only booked online a day before and still was enough and all well organised. Everywhere we travel in the world, for excursions I always use Viator! Amazing site xxx

This tour was so much fun and the guides really showed us a wonderful time.... Our driver was the best ever he did tricks in the sand for us and talked to us all about the UAE... He was so informative and really nice. It did help that he was really cute :- I would do this tour again!

A fantastic afternoon. Would recommend for anyone who doesn't mind being thrown around a little in the cars while on the dunes. We had a ball, and the other passengers added to a great afternoon and evening.

If you travel to this part of the world you have to experience this adventure.
The drivers were skilful in handling the vehicles.
All the activities at the camp site were enjoyable and the dinner was very good.
We found all the tour staff very polite and courteous, in particular the two drivers involved in our pickup and drop off to and from Abu Dhabi.

This was the highlight of our few [too many] days in Abu Dhabi.
Having decided that we didnot like the place at all and feeling miserable, we booked this tour.. Thank goodness we did. So much fun and very good value.
We were travelling as a family of 5 with ages ranging from 62 down to 6 and we all had such a great day out.
We had a great guide/ driver. He showed us a lot of things enroute to our dune bashing and told us a lot of interesting things.
The dune bashing was fantastic fun and we felt so safe at the same time with the driver we had at the wheel.
The camels were a delight and the barbecue and belly dancing was one of the best nights of our entire holiday and we had come from Bali!
I am not convinced the belly dancer was a real Arab girl, but she did a great turn and everyone enjoyed the show. There was also a young man performing an amazing dance routine which was just as good as the belly dancer and we were all so disappointed when our tempory henna tattoos eventually wore off once hime.
Yes, I would recomment this tour to everyone, a great diversion from the cities of Abu Dabi and Dubai.
Thanks guys.

Well organised and professional tour with friendly team all along the way. Gave a good insight into local area and culture, very informative and entertaining. Great fun with something for everyone. There are many local tour groups, these guys seemed the best by far.

Absolutely fabulous! We were picked up on time and taken out into the desert where we went on the best rollercoaster ride off all time! Our driver thankfully knew what he was doing as he drove like a mad man up, down and around the sand dunes. Eventually we arrived at the camp site where we were able to do lots of fun desert things like sand boarding and camel riding. Unfortunately the camel ride wasn't as long as we were expecting only lasting 3 minutes but you could keep going on if there was no one else waiting. There was plenty to eat at dinner and the food was really delicious. After dinner they turned out the lights so we could relax under the stars. Even though I did get somewhat sick from bouncing around the sand dunes in the car I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to it and I would even do it again myself just as long as I took some medication before hand so I didn't get sick again.

This was a great outing with good food and a dancing presentation. I would recommend bringing a video camera or go pro for yourself as pictures don't do it justice. The those with sensitive stomachs to motion you may want to take gravol. I thought it overall was an excellent experience.

Great experience, particularly the 4wd ride! The dinner was also great. The only downside was the almost 2 hours each way to get there. Perhaps we missed something in the original info, but the drive was difficult and we almost didn't go, particularly as we had been into Dubai the previous day for a city tour. We expected that given the tour was targeted at Abu Dhabi tourists, it would have been a more localised experience. However, given that, if you are up for the transfer time, it was a fun experience.

Really good fun and plenty to see and do when you arrive in the Desert. Just remember it is a long trip from Abu Dhabi but the transportation is comfortable. Going over the Dunes was also good and there was plenty of food.

This was a really cool trip. Everything was fun. It is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get experience. You do everything they say in the description. Best part is they don't gauge you for extra money every time you turn around. It was fun. The 4x4 ride was fun and the driver was sensitive to those who had a weak stomach. The food at the show was casual but good. The belly dancer at the end was fun. A very family-friendly dance, not sexy. Overall a good deal. Be prepared for a long drive if you are getting picked up in Abu Dhabi.
