The tour guy was lovely and really friendly, but i think the sandboarding was boring, only had two goes on small dunes that was covered in camel poo and the 4x4 wasn't as scary as i though it would be, would have been better on bigger dunes, the quad biking was fun.

This was an ordinary sandboarding experience. It was just down one hill! The dune buggy ride was fine, but considering how far we had to go to get there, it wasn't worth it.

A very quiet guide but generally polite. The off roading in the desert was fun. However, we tried sand boarding, which had the guide actually tried it himself, we might have had a better chance of getting the hang of it. We were offered a camel ride from which we abstained simply because we're not keen on the animals, but at no point were we offered a dune buggy ride or told where we could try this.

It was an interesting experience but perhaps next time it would be good to do it in a group rather than just the one car.

This was one of the worst tours I have ever done. To start with we were taken to a 'meting point' to meet no-one but it was just a shop where the owners were extremely intimidating and aggressive and we were told we had to buy things from them so as not to cause offence. We were then taken round the back of this shop and up 1 sand dune where we were asked to get out of the car and told we could go sand boarding. That was the Safari over. 1 sand dune!!! we had no experience on the sand boards and were just told to get on with it. We were then taken to an enclosed area, told to sign some forms stating we accepted if we went on quad bikes we were not insured and then allowed to drive quad bikes around an enclosed area smaller than a football pitch. This was not what we booked and i feel we were completely ripped off

Picked up punctually from the hotel. 4 x 4 drive through the red dunes was great. However when we stopped to try sandboarding the driver offered almost no tuition both my teenage kids had a go and both crashed at some speed ending up with some significant bruising and my daughter hurt her neck. The dune selected by the driver for their first attempt was huge. For first timers gentle slopes should be offered initially but we got the impression that the driver wanted us back at the hotel asap hence offered an experience he knew we would not enjoy knowing we wouldn't have another go. The whole thing lasted less than 2.5 hours including a 45 min trip each way to the dunes.
