Self-Drive Desert Buggy or Quad Bike Experience with Transport from Dubai

Rumble and roar over the sands of Dubai on a 3-hour quad bike or desert buggy experience. With an expert guide, hop inside an air-conditioned vehicle and travel into the desert. Then, climb aboard your chosen transport — an open-top desert buggy with automatic gears or a quad bike — put on the supplied helmet and goggles, and after instructions, take off on an exciting 1-hour ride. Follow dusty tracks and zip across plains in convoy behind your guide. Stop halfway for a soda and photos before zooming back to base.

What You Can Expect

Self-Drive Desert Buggy or Quad Bike Experience with Transport from Dubai

Feel the adrenaline of riding a desert buggy across the Dubai desert!

Choose a desert buggy or quad bike tour when you book. Then, start your 3-hour desert experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. 
Board your air-conditioned minivan or other vehicle with your guide and travel into the desert. After approximately one hour, arrive at the base where the quad bikes and desert buggies — the latter with automatic gears — await.

After a safety briefing, put on the provided helmet and goggles, and take a seat on your chosen vehicle.

Get instructions from your guide, and take a practice ride to get comfortable with the controls.

Then, open the throttle and set off in convoy on a 1-hour ride. Rumble across the sandy terrain, bump along dusty tracks and roar around small dunes and ridges — it’s a serious thrill.

Enjoy the views and midway through your ride, stop to enjoy a complimentary soda and snap photos of the desert expanses. 

Your guide will accompany your convoy throughout and offer tips so you enjoy your ride to the max.

Pick up speed as you gain in confidence and then wind your way back to base. 

With your ride finished, leave your quad or buggy and return to your transfer vehicle. Relax on your drive back to Dubai, where your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.

A lot of fun in the desert driving a Polaris 800cc RZR! Great short excursion. Door to door hotel service in 2.5 hours.

My wife and I really enjoyed the buggy tour, but wish it would have lasted a bit longer to give us a bit more value for our dollars. Buggy ride should be longer than the trip to and from the hotel!
The driver was very professional and drove according to Internationally accepted standards, so we all felt safe on the roads to and from the ride
The guide was very conscious about safety and our comfort, so we really enjoyed the whole dune experience.
Great FUN!

Nice experience to drive at sand.
Organisation was great.
Drive was nice.
Not very challenging.
God for beginners.
I give just 4 of 5 Stars. For me it would have been great if I had more space - maybe do a little race / or free rides over the dunes - but can understand that due to safety issues it's difficult to realize.
