We can highly recommend both tours. The tour guide for the City Sightseeing was excellent and very friendly. We enjoyed the souks the most and also the boat trip. The Desert Safari was very exciting. The meal was excellent.

Definitely cheaper to get the two for one deal. I met people who did these tours separately and they paid double the price. City tour was great, tour guide was very knowledgeable and we had plenty of time everywhere.

The Desert tour was fantastic. You get 45 minutes of driving over the dunes in a 4wd which is a lot of fun. The sand boarding, camel riding and falconry was rushed, but you definitely got to have a go at everything. The alcoholic drinks at the dinner are very well priced and soft drinks are free. Had a great time.

This is one of my highlights of my trip. The 1 day trip was excellent as we have an excellent tourguide - Nimesh is his name... the Safari one was exhilarating and exciting! The dinner was delicious and the dance is an exquisite touch to end the day. Highly recommended...

What an incredible day. The city tour was very incite full, tour guide was lovely.
The sand driving was CRAZY (make sure you don't get easily sick!) then straight to the desert to ride a camel, shisha, food was lovely! And watch some dancing! I loved it and recommend it to everyone.

Great tour! This tour was lots of fun and the time passed quickly. Beware that the desert safari is about 35 minutes of roller coaster-style hills and turns. It's lot of fun, but if you get motion sickness easily, I would avoid it. The dinner was nice and the entertainment was top-notch.

This is a great tour and recommended for getting a flavour of the culture, past and present of Dubai.

We did the Desert Safari on the first day. After the hotel pickup and a 30 minute journey, they take you on a 30-40 minute ride on sand dunes in a 4x4 vehicle, which is just exhilarating. If you have motion sickness of any kind this is not for you. Please tell the guide in advance so they take you to the next part in a simpler route. Even if you are not bothered by motion sickness, do not eat or drink for at least 2 hours before the ride starts, just drink water. There was a pit stop at a camel farm that was cute, as well as photo opportunities all along. The actual camp had camel rides, sand boarding, henna tattooing, sand art amazing, paid, hookah, traditional dance by a guy who goes round and round. This is followed by a tasty all you can eat arabic buffet, with traditional dessert and tea/coffee/drinks. Then the belly dancer comes on. The dance is more like generic dancing in costume and a traditional flavour. Don't expect the dancer to do fancy stuff like shuffle coins on her belly like in videos. There is some nudity and sexual connotation in the dance itself, so if you have kids, beware. After this we were taken back in the same vehicle and taken back by a more direct route back to our hotel.

On the second day we went on the half day City tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. It starts at the beach near the Burj Al Arab hotel, goes to the Jumeirah mosque and on to the Dubai museum. All along the guide keeps you engaged. The Dubai museum is a must see. After that we go by a short open boat ride to the spice souq market and onto the gold souq. You can pick up your mementos, magnets, stuffed camels etc. cheaper at the spice souq than all the malls. If you pick up an stuff here watch the stitching etc. carefully. They don't cheat but if you get stuck with something bad its yours. They will then drop you back to your hotel in shuttles.

Overall Great !!

Absolutely wonderful. The desert safari was the highlight of our dubai trip. You get to do so much and everything is so well planned out. The tour guides were knowledgeable and nice. One thing I really like was the pickup/dropoff. We stayed a Battuta Gate so it's out of the city. For the city tour, we were picked up in a mini-van and was dropped off at the meeting point for the coach bus. After the tour, we were also picked up by the mini-van to be dropped off at our hotel directly. This saved a lot of our time since it would be horrible to be sitting in a coach bus dropping each couple/family off.

One complaint though is that we were supposed to be picked up at 2:30 for our safari tour. We rushed back and at 2:30, the driver called to say it's been pushed out to 3:00. It would have been more considerate if they'd told us in the morning instead of at pickup time.
