We had such a great day out. The dune bashing was such fun and the driver was brilliant. He was very skilled and friendly. There were plenty of drinks and we were looked after very well. The sandboarding was great fun and definitely worth a go. We recommend this trip to everyone.

Our driver was extremely informative and very knowledgeable. His English was great, and he was extremely nice. My party and I appreciated his company and his adventurousness very much. A GREAT trip!

This was an excellent half day. The highlight of our week in Dubai. The combination of the sand dunes in the 4x4 and then quad biking and sandboarding for the kids was really good. All combined with a friendly and interesting driver. Great value for money.

This was the best thing we did in Dubai. Four-wheeling was awesome.

Definitely worth the early start; this is a great experience. Sand surfing was fun, but it was tough running back up hill! My guide was excellent and very friendly. I would do this trip again in a minute.

Really enjoyed the trip and great experience. The driver was very knowledgeable and accomodated our needs and wishes. Collected from our hotel and bought us back all on time. Very hot and dusty.
Tried sandboarding and yes fell over!! Have a go.

Great trip.

Really hot but great fun to try. Walking up those sand dunes for the next ride is hard work in the heat but worth it!

Safari itself was very good! The only thing which could have been better were the information during the safari. The guide didnt tell what will happen next but only "now you can go sandboarding", "would you take softdrinks" and "now you can go and wash your hands".

Definitely a fun trip. he took it easy off roading due to one of us gets car sick easily. The sand boarding was ok-just one small hill you can go down. Our guide was great. We asked about the camel rides and he obliged. We fit this and the private 12 day sightseeing tour into one busy day.

If you're as scared of driving fast as I am, this is the one to sort that out. I screamed and screamed until I laughed. Sandboarding was a short time, but again had a laugh, and finally the camel ride. I'm terrified of them, but as it was my son's 13th birthday, I had to do the birthday thing with him and again got over my fear. Wasn't too bad getting up and as easy getting down. Well worth doing. Our guide was brill, couldn't have been better, he even got a laugh out of us.

Excellent adventure! Had less time than advertised, which was a little annoying, but only a minor complaint.

OK
all it is is pick up at hotel, drive for an hour, sandboard for an hour, and drive back. Driver did not say much during hour drive. While the sandboarding is fun keep in mind you have to climb back up the hill - very tiring - ultimately unlikely you will go down more than 3-4 times because of this.
worth doing but only 3 hours and really it is just a drive to do sandboarding. I am still looking for the adventure safari!

Really fun activity, I was the only one doing it though, no other people in my group just me and the driver so it did take some element of fun out of it as the encouragement to stay longer was lacking .... It' worth giving it a try even if you dont think you will be any good. The only downside is you have to walk back up the sand dunes with your board... try doing that at midday in the baking heat over and over again. Certainly took some time to get my breathe back after each climb.

15 Min desert tour right beneath the high way. Was OK but too short.
The sandboarding part was ok but the mounting was extremely poor. You couldn't even steer with the board; just straight ahead.
When we left desert we stopped by a touristy "ghost town" where an annoying guy tried to sell his merchandise.

Due to get picked up at 9am, driver arrived at 8am, mad rush to get ready, once in the desert we had around 35 minutes dune bashing and 15 minutes sandboarding, none of us could sandboard no help offered, then back to the hotel by 10.40am, not value for money

This is a tour for the 100% fit. I knew I wouldnt do the sand boarding as I have mobility challenges, however my husband thought it would be great fun. He managed to do 2 dunes only as the climb back up was too much for him. We were picked up @ 8am from hotel and were back there @11am I dont think it was value for money for us. We are both in late 50's
