Loved everything about this tour! Our tour guide was an absolute card and held our attention for the entire trip. The food was excellent! It was a trip to remember for a very long time. I highly recommend it!!
Very nice trip, our guide Naser was excellent and very helpful. Definitely a trip worth taking!
We had a 12 hour layover in Dubai and we didn't want to be stuck in the airport. This tour will pick you up at a near by hotel and then take you to the desert learning insights along the way. Upon arrival at the nature conservatory, you chage vehicles to a open air vintage RangeRover. You then head out into the duned for off road driving on the duns, spotting wildlife, attending a falconry demonstration before you reach the comfortable camp for a full meal and entertainment. Regardless of you circumstances, this is a different tour that you will enjoy. The staff is welcoming and kind and they will do everything they can to make your night enjoyable. If you go in winter, bring warn clothes as you will need them to be comfortable. Enjoy, it can't be beat.
My husband and I loved this trip! It may have been the highlight of our whole time in Dubai. The ride through the desert and the dunes was just right -- we chose this particular version of the desert experience partially because it did not do any "dune busting". The guide was terrific, the food and the camp was also very good. We had a stop for sunset and a demonstration of a falcon in flight.
If you have the time, this tour should be on the top of your Dubai list. I highly recommend it. Our driver/host Malek was fantastic. He had a great sense of humor and was really patient with us. They picked me up at my hotel. From there, we drove out towards the desert. Along the way, Malek noticed that there was a camel race going on, so we pulled over to watch. Once we arrived, they put a keffiyeh on each of us. Then we chose a Land Rover and headed out into the desert. They stop multiple times to give everyone opportunities for pictures. Climbing sand dunes was pretty cool. We then went and saw the falconry display and got to hold the falcon. We saw a stunning sunset and then headed to the camp for dinner. It's a gorgeous setup and the food was amazing. It's extremely well-run. We had camel rides whilst there and enjoyed starters and dinner. They had local dancers and entertainment (including henna artist) and the evening was capped off by the offer to partake in hookah (it's optional). That's a lot to do in your six or seven hours and it was a five-star experience. One couple in my group had done the same tour last year and loved it so much, they came back again. Now that I have done this once, I would also do it again.
We had a fantastic alternative Christmas Day on this trip. Our guide was amazing and the personal attention was magnificent. We could not fault anything on our adventure and have returned home with many great memories.
A memorable experience. Following a prompt and efficient pick up, we were soon transferred to the site where (having been head wrapped in our scarves) we were assigned to our open-topped Land Rover. Our driver (Hassam) was not only great fun to be with, he knew his stuff! He excited us: demonstrating his speedy but safe driving skills in the sand. He was informative about the intent of the conservation area and knowledgeable of the local species (not that we saw many). The entire desert experience was fun-focused. The hospitality could not be faulted. We loved the falconry display, the hilarity of riding the 'ship of the desert', the very tasty dinner and the Arabic entertainment. It was an experience we would recommend.......and if you get Hassam as your driver you will definitely have fun.
Fantastic experience. Love the 4 wheel drives, falcon display, camel ride and food. Our guide was passionate and funny and made it a complete experience.
