This tour is great. Our guide, Sayeed, was very knowledgeable and did his best to keep us entertained. We had a ride on a camel, sandboarded and watched the belly dancing - great BBQ food and entertainment in the desert. water and soft drinks are free, beer/wine was available at approx 40 UAE Dr.
The only problem was, we were late being picked up and then sat in the car 1 hour as the 4 other guests who should have collected before us were not at their pick up point on time, Sayeed could not find them and was instructed to wait. After 1 hour we left only to turn around after 10 mins to collect the guests. This was a really bad start to the trip - the pick up info should be made clear to all guests.
One of the best tours during our whole trip! BBQ dinner buffet was surprisingly good.
It was a fantastic trip. The driver was very friendly and all the entertainment and food was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour and company.
Desert Safari was unbelievable, particularly the drive in the desert. Drivers were great and gave me a lot of thrills
Great time. Everything went like clockwork and time for all events just right. Highly recommend!!
This was a great time. Very knowledgeable and organized staff. Thrills, almost spills and lots of chills! Great for kids! The Land Rover Dune Bashing is a once in a lifetime experience. Total thrill ride. Lots of great photo ops, dinner was excellent. Highly recommend.
Everything went exactly as we expected. The mix of culture and adventure was perfect. A great way to spend a day in Dubai!
This was the best of the activities that we had during our trips!!! Our driver was very friendly and we had so much fun!! i recommend this one to anyone that has some spare time in Dubai!!!
Great fun! It was nice going with such a small group only 3 people. The highlight was the dune bashing. Note that the camel ride is quite short only a few minutes but as it's a rather bumpy ride, I think this might actually be a good thing.
wow it was awesome, the tour guide was great, everything was set and ready to go upon arrival. We enjoyed every min of it. It's a must do.
Awesome trip....I had a great time dune bashing. Our guide was superb. The experience was amazing! The dunes, the food, the camels, the show.....all added to my enjoyment of that was is the great city of Dubai! I highly recommend to anyone coming to Dubai for even a few days!

The ride was great, a first time experience. Mostafa the driver is one of the most talented drivers, I recommend this tour for everyone visiting Dubai.
It was an excellent trip. Our guide Bobby was amazing. He gave us a wonderful history lesson on Dubai and the city of Dubai. The 4x4 Land cruiser was very comfortable. Riding in the sand dunes was exhilarating but a little scary. It was like being in a roller coaster. We rode a camel, did some sand boarding, got a henna. The barbecue dinner was excellent so was the belly dancing and the other dance
This tour was amazing. They were very organized, the food was great and so was the entertainment. I highly recommend this tour.
A must do! The 4x4, the camels, the camp, the food, the drinks. And awesome experience!
Great tour with a great driver, Bobby. We loved the driving on the dunes. I was a bit hesitant at first but the driver was very assuring and told us about his 27 years of experience. The sandboarding was also great, both adults and teenagers loved it.
Most definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Dubai! Mohamed was a great driver and very informative about the history and culture of Dubai. This tour is a must for anyone visiting this beautiful city! I'll be doing it again my next visit :-
The Tour was excellent and worth every penny spent. Our tour guide was professional and made our experience even more exciting.
This was great. Travelled for about 45 minutes out to the sand dunes and had a great time riding/surfing the dunes in the 4 X 4. It was comforting to know that the 4 X 4 had a well padded Roll Cage for our protection and that in spite of having travelled a lot of miles, the Toyota was still straight.
Our driver was very quite but very skilful as a driver, and it was a pleasure to see him control the vehicle in situations were most people would have ended up on their roof.
Having been tempted with this we headed off to the camp to have a go at a camel ride, have tea and watch some dancing.
I don't know what it was but everyone else got to ride the camel in pairs, I had to ride it by myself, and then I got a dirty look from the camel when it tried to stand up. Maybe I was nearing the weight where the straw broke the camel's back - but for me at least it was fun don't know about the camel.
The meal was quite nice and there was plenty available, so nobody starved.
There was the opportunity to purchase the usual trinkets and to have a Henna tattoo applied to various body parts.
Finally there was the dancing, and it was spectacular, a Tandoora dance demonstration and then a demonstration of Belly Dancing.
Don't miss this tour it is good value for money and a great experience for young and old.
Thanks to our guide and the tour staff this safari was a very nice moment. The entire organisation was perfect, and all the various activities worth to be done. Even our 6 years old son was amazed.
A fantastic afternoon!! The sand dune 4 wheel driving was excellent. The food was delicious and all the extra entertainment was great
A must tour to do in Dubai
Would recommend this trip. We were in two minds on holiday as to whether to go on this trip or on the one our tour operators in the hotel were offering. We chose this and weren't disappointed. I booked via the app for the next day and the service was brilliant.
Our driver unfortunately can't remember his name was fantastic, very knowledgeable, showing us points of interest there and back. Once at the dunes he didn't hold back and my daughter likened the ride to being on a rollercoaster. It was great fun and I would definitely recommend this trip. With the camel rides, henna tattoo, sand boarding we have ticked a few boxes off our list of things to do!
Brilliant experience, great value lots of variety, camel ride, 4x4, sand-boarding and BBQ was excellent. Totally recommend it when in Dubai.
