What You Can Expect

Dubai Desert Morning Tour in 4x4 Vehicle: Camel Ride, Quad Bike Tour, Sandboarding and Camel Farm

Enjoy four exciting desert activities on a Dubai 4x4 tour!

Your morning kicks off with a pickup from your Dubai hotel. Settle in to your air-conditioned, 4x4 vehicle and travel south from the city, heading deep into the desert. Enjoy the views over the barren landscapes and distant Hajar Mountains as your guide tells you fascinating facts about the desert, its geography and its people.

After roughly one hour on the road, arrive at the desert base, all ready for the adventures ahead, and climb into your quad bike for a tour. Listen to the safety briefing and driving instructions, pop on your helmet, buckle up and take a practice ride. Then, you’re off! Open the throttle and race along dusty trails, following your guide and enjoying panoramic views over the desert as you go.

Next comes your visit to a traditional camel farm to see these stoic ‘ships of the desert’ that are so beloved by the nomadic Bedouin people. Get up close to the camel enclosures to take photos of the animals and any baby camels in the herd. Then, clamber onto a camel to tread the sands. Master the animal’s rolling gait with help from your guide, and learn how and why these magnificent creatures make the ideal mode of transport in the desert.

Having seen the sands from the back of a humped-back beast, try your hand at another popular desert sport: sandboarding! Grab one of the provided sandboards and ‘surf’ your way down the steep sand dunes like a snowboarder. Feel your adrenaline pump as you glide down the slopes and perhaps race your fellow travelers — it’s a thrilling experience!

Your tour finishes with your 4x4 journey back to Dubai and a drop-off at your hotel. Water and soda are available during the morning, but remember to bring a camera to take lots of photos!

Please note: the order of activities, as described above, is subject to change on the day of your tour.

Amazing!! Our tour guide was spectacular. He arrived to pick us up from the hotel on time and prepared us for a great day. During the ride to the desert, he provided us with information about Dubai as well as the upcoming developments of the city. He had a great personality and spoke English very well. The tour was great. The 4 wheelers were very fun! I don't really like the sand boarding but that's a personal preference. It had nothing to do with the tour guide or the company itself. All three associates were very helpful and friendly during the entire safari. I highly recommend this tour and company!!

I feel this was really good value for money. We got to do everything in a reasonable amount of time. In the Dubai heat you don't really need to be out all day. The driver was extremely prompt. He was waiting for me as I arrived at the foyer and was really friendly. He introduced us to the other day trippers and was really informative on the journey to the desert. He gave us a brief history lesson.
Even though it was Ramadan they gave us ice cold water which was much needed. We aren't used to the heat and really needed it!
I would 100 recommend this trip. And would be happy to use them again in the future :

Really enjoyed the experience, the quad bikes were easy to ride and the guide took us on quite a long trip through the dunes with a stop halfway to try out some sandboarding, and finishing with a camel ride. It was all very well organised and there was no hanging about. We were supplied with lots of water and the quad bike ride was just right, not too difficult to be scary and not too easy to be boring! Sandboarding was good, only downside was the walk back up the dune afterwards! Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable.
