Awesome! This tour has got to be done! The guys are top class.
They called to say what time the pick up would be. Was organised with friendly staff.
Absolutely great fun, and people you can rely on!
It was just myself and the guide which was awkward at first but ended up being fine, he was nice, made conversation, made sure I had a drink or anything else that I needed. I had a great time sandboarding and 4x4 drive through the dunes, got some great photos. Would recommend to others.
The tour was good. The sand boarding experience was fun ! The tour guide was very friendly , the only drawback is climbing back the dunes , it is very tiring ! Other than that it s a fun thing to do while you're in Dubai !
It was cool being in the desert instead of a snowed mountain, changing the cold for an extreme sun. Know the differences between both sports. Having good takings. Only one bad point: climb back up the dunes everytime

Fun trip. Punctual pick up and drop off. 4 X 4 dune bashing great, very skilled driver and quite breathtaking at times - just ask my wife! Don't expect too much from the sandboarding or camel ride though. The dunes are only small, but high enough to walk up a few times in 32 degrees, and the boards are knackered - but worth a try.

It was an amazing trip. Funfilled, adventurous and a very memorable one. Very exciting and a must do activity in Dubai.
This trip is worth doing, if more for the younger, fitter amongst us!
The jeep dune rude was good but short and the sandboarding was great going down but hard work on the way back up!
Driver was friendly, helpful and informative even though he did turn up half an hour earlier than planned.
This morning-trip consists of a short stay in the part of the desert, which is near by the main highway. This part of the dessert is great, but it is not the kind of untouched desert I have expected. The Sandboarding part was really worth trying.
Driver/guide was a bit vague as to how long we had to sandboard and we felt we didn't have very long due to mis-communication over last run.Our whole trip lasted about 21/2 hours as opposed to 4hrs advertised. Where we sandboarded was a bit grotty with litter strewn everywhere!
Driver was very good. Because we stayed at the Atlantis we got almost a city tour to pick up another passenger. Driver was very knowledgeable. However the sand-boarding is very exhausting. Climbing back up the dunes is very hard. You need to be fit. Driving through dunes is great experience.
The dunes where they bring you are located beside a small shop where they basically harass you into buying souvenirs and rip you off by charging 3-5 times what you would pay in the malls in Dubai. BE WARNED . DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THESE CON ARTISTS. YOU WILL BE SCAMED. The drive on the sand dunes was great fun. The sand was too hot this time of year for climbing up the dunes after sliding down. I was on my own so maybe this is why the whole trip from my hotel there and back including the activity was only 2hr 15 mins and not the 4 hrs it was described as.
The view was amazing but ..... the sandboards were snowboards!!! You can't use a wax bottom board on the sand. YOU DON'T MOVE Bottom line the boards need to have either a plastic,wood or metal bottom to them in order to slide. I thought these existed and these where what we were going use but no. Other the the fact you shimmy yourself down the Dune. Guide was very nice. SUV was very nice and the drive didn't take too long. left by 830 and was back by 1130
