A fantastic afternoon. Would recommend for anyone who doesn't mind being thrown around a little in the cars while on the dunes. We had a ball, and the other passengers added to a great afternoon and evening.

If you travel to this part of the world you have to experience this adventure.
The drivers were skilful in handling the vehicles.
All the activities at the camp site were enjoyable and the dinner was very good.
We found all the tour staff very polite and courteous, in particular the two drivers involved in our pickup and drop off to and from Abu Dhabi.

This was the highlight of our few [too many] days in Abu Dhabi.
Having decided that we didnot like the place at all and feeling miserable, we booked this tour.. Thank goodness we did. So much fun and very good value.
We were travelling as a family of 5 with ages ranging from 62 down to 6 and we all had such a great day out.
We had a great guide/ driver. He showed us a lot of things enroute to our dune bashing and told us a lot of interesting things.
The dune bashing was fantastic fun and we felt so safe at the same time with the driver we had at the wheel.
The camels were a delight and the barbecue and belly dancing was one of the best nights of our entire holiday and we had come from Bali!
I am not convinced the belly dancer was a real Arab girl, but she did a great turn and everyone enjoyed the show. There was also a young man performing an amazing dance routine which was just as good as the belly dancer and we were all so disappointed when our tempory henna tattoos eventually wore off once hime.
Yes, I would recomment this tour to everyone, a great diversion from the cities of Abu Dabi and Dubai.
Thanks guys.

Well organised and professional tour with friendly team all along the way. Gave a good insight into local area and culture, very informative and entertaining. Great fun with something for everyone. There are many local tour groups, these guys seemed the best by far.

Great experience, particularly the 4wd ride! The dinner was also great. The only downside was the almost 2 hours each way to get there. Perhaps we missed something in the original info, but the drive was difficult and we almost didn't go, particularly as we had been into Dubai the previous day for a city tour. We expected that given the tour was targeted at Abu Dhabi tourists, it would have been a more localised experience. However, given that, if you are up for the transfer time, it was a fun experience.

Really good fun and plenty to see and do when you arrive in the Desert. Just remember it is a long trip from Abu Dhabi but the transportation is comfortable. Going over the Dunes was also good and there was plenty of food.

This was a really cool trip. Everything was fun. It is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get experience. You do everything they say in the description. Best part is they don't gauge you for extra money every time you turn around. It was fun. The 4x4 ride was fun and the driver was sensitive to those who had a weak stomach. The food at the show was casual but good. The belly dancer at the end was fun. A very family-friendly dance, not sexy. Overall a good deal. Be prepared for a long drive if you are getting picked up in Abu Dhabi.

Friendly staff. Enjoyed the drive. Food not so good. Camel ride not what I expected. Would have preferred my own camel not 3 tied together. Overall a good experience.

Tour started with driver arriving at our hotel (Hotel Sofitel) for pick up 40 minutes early, driven to Dubai in silence in toyota wagon to sit at a petrol station for 40 minutes waiting for pick up by 4x4 vehicle. 4X4 tour was great and the desert camp was good with great food. The performances were good with great belly dancer. The return trip was a matter of swapping vehicles on the roadside and travelling to Abu Dhabi in similar silence before the driver had three attempts at getting us back to our hotel which only happened after we gave directions.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

While we enjoyed the safari once we arrived it was extremely disappointing that this trip was advertised in the activities for Abu Dhabi. While the title does say Dubai safari from Abu Dhabi I was expecting that the safari would be half way between the two. I was not expecting we would travel 2.5 hours from Abu Dhabi to get to the start of the safari! Then the same time to get back. The trip information should include travel time to and from the safari so people can make an informed decision. Very disappointed with Viator on this trip.
