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!
Loved the experience and the tour guide personal was excellent! Please acknowledge my drivers expertise and address appropriately.
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.
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.
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.
We had a good day out,prompt pick up in a good vehicle from our hotel and good vehicle and drivr for the desert drive.
Dinner was not bad and the wine was good and not over priced.
Good entertainment ,all in all a good time well done.
The experience was great. We really enjoyed the 4wheel driving.
Friendly staff. Enjoyed the drive. Food not so good. Camel ride not what I expected. Would have preferred my own camel not 3 tied together. Overall a good experience.
Tour started with driver arriving at our hotel (Hotel Sofitel) for pick up 40 minutes early, driven to Dubai in silence in toyota wagon to sit at a petrol station for 40 minutes waiting for pick up by 4x4 vehicle. 4X4 tour was great and the desert camp was good with great food. The performances were good with great belly dancer. The return trip was a matter of swapping vehicles on the roadside and travelling to Abu Dhabi in similar silence before the driver had three attempts at getting us back to our hotel which only happened after we gave directions.
While we enjoyed the safari once we arrived it was extremely disappointing that this trip was advertised in the activities for Abu Dhabi. While the title does say Dubai safari from Abu Dhabi I was expecting that the safari would be half way between the two. I was not expecting we would travel 2.5 hours from Abu Dhabi to get to the start of the safari! Then the same time to get back. The trip information should include travel time to and from the safari so people can make an informed decision. Very disappointed with Viator on this trip.
