Exellent experience, supurb Drivers, good service, lots of activities- can imporve on vegeterian meal, good to have some veg pasta, or veg main dish such as mixed vegetable, palak paneer, instead of baked beans- Over all we had very good experince- will consider talking this tour again in the future

After reading all the reviews from several people and seeing how much fun everyone had I thought I'd give it a go!
My girlfriend and I were not dissapointed! It was such great fun!!
After arranging for the driver to pick us up we were driven to the desert just east of Dubai itself. Our driver was great! The 4x4 experience was thrilling! it's like being on a rollercoaster. You stop every now and again to have your picture taken by the safari team, who are really friendly people.
After 30-40mins of 4x4 rally driving you are taken to a camel farm. Again you have pictures taken. There's also an opportunity to hold a bird of prey but you have to pay 10AED. I did it and it was cool!
You finally move to a a traditional bedawin style camp. Here there's food and drinks all for free! You also have the chance to ride camels as many times as you want. You and sand board also down one of the dunes.
There was a really tallented guy there who makes sand art in bottles for you, he makes them from scratch and to your design. Very impressive. The cost depends on the size of the bottle. I paid 100AED.
As the evening wears on the entertainment consists of a traditional Arab dance and a belly dancer.
On completion your driver takes you back to your hotel or home.
My girlfriend and I had an excellent time! I would highly reccommend this to anybody. Your face will be sore by the end of the day because of how much you'll be laughing and smiling!

The desert safari was a good time. The driver was knowledgeable and seemed experienced at the dune bashing aspect of the trip. Would recommend a larger party than 1 to really enjoy all aspects of tour. Overall, a most pleasent experience, 9.5 out of 10.

It was fantastic so much fun. The driver picked us up and was friendly and welcoming and was the most amazing driver ever, you felt like you was in good hands. The camp was good fun with great entertainment and food. A must do trip!

Good thing I had an airsick patch behind my ear, because this was one wild ride! I wish the camel rides were longer and we had more time to do more than one sand board run, but we had a really good time. The food was great! The $25 disk was kind of a waste, considering I only found a few photos of us on it...and we'd taken ones ourselves that were almost complete duplicates. However, $25 is a lot less than the $60 charge you get at the Bjur Khalifa for just one photo.

Great outing to experience the desert up close and personal.... expert driving over the dunes.. stops to experience the vast emptiness of the desert and the dinner and entertainment at the camp was great. We even got time to have a quick fly of our kites :)

A very adventurous and exhilarating tour to experience. Loved the camel riding, sand boarding, belly dancing, etc. The buffet was delicious, especially the BBQ chicken and hummus. My husband and I highly recommend!

Really well organised.4x4 driving was great fun going up and down hills you would think not possible. Taken to camel farm, rode camels and did sandboarding. There were plenty of activities at camp to keep you busy. Dinner was bbq meats and salad. Simple food but delicious.Do this trip, fantastic!

We loved every minute of this trip. Our little Indian driver (cant remember his name but he had dimples) was exceptional.
You really needed skill to do what he did.
This is worth every cent
