Premium Red Dunes & Camel Safari with BBQ at Al Khayma Camp
The drive through the desert
, Feb 2020
Really great experience. Laid back, fun, not expensive very well organized. The food was really good too. Our guide and driver was awesome too! Aamerr Abbas. This guy knew everything about the city and told us so much along the drive. Would definitely recommend!
What a day, we did this trip on 31st January for my 50th Birthday. Our guide Sharaf was lovely, happy to answer questions and took some great pictures for us. We were picked up outside our hotel at 11.15 and back by 5.45. We opted for the quad bike ride which was such fun. The dune bashing was great but did make me feel a little sick! The food at the camp was really nice and unlimited drinks also. This is a must and a great trip with a great company.
Immerse yourself in the natural landscape of the Arabian Desert on a half-day tour with convenient round-trip transport from the doorstep of your Dubai accommodation. The day’s itinerary includes sandboarding, dune bashing, camel rides, and frame-worthy photo ops. Round out the evening with dinner and live dance performances.
Full-Day Tour of Abu Dhabi City From Dubai, Day Trip with Guide
Enjoyable experience for a very fair price
, Feb 2020
Long day that was filled with lots of short stops, photo ops, and insight into life in the UAE. Fun guide. We had plenty of time to visit the Grand Mosque, which was definitely the highlight of the trip. It'd make a great first day adventure, so that you can plan the rest of your time in UAE after.
The tour was a great one. I didn't have a local number but the tour operator contacted me via whatsapp and shared all the details. I followed up on few details and they were wiling to share the details.
Our guide Binu was very informative and had good knowledge about the history of Abu Dhabi. He helped us take pictures and was polite in all manners.
This is a highly recommended tour for one day. The pick up and drop is usually on time and they let you get down at any place if it is on the way.
Get to know the UAE’s ultra-modern capital of Abu Dhabi on this day trip from Dubai. Stroll around the white marble masterpiece of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, admire views of the Yas Marina Formula 1 circuit and Ferrari World, and visit the Heritage Village to learn about Abu Dhabi’s pre-oil past and Bedouin beginnings. Informative guided commentary, round-trip transport, and Dubai hotel pickup and drop-off are included.
Great way to get around and jump off when you feel the need tour guides very good, clean and 3 different routes to get to see as much as poosible great price and free trips also included depending on ticket type
Even this Tour could - and should - , be improved !
The bus stops (Big Bus hop on - hop off ), are not market CLEARLY, as they , in fact, are non-existent.
People go from placr to place, ask around and, almost, nobody can give you the right direction /information .
Surely, there is a way to make things better !
Explore Dubai at your own pace on a double-decker, open-top Big Bus Dubai tour. Admire top Dubai attractions including the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al-Arab, and Old Dubai, and hop on and off at any of the stops around the city to visit souks, malls, and museums as you please.

Jet Ski Tour of Dubai: Burj Al Arab, Dubai Marina, Atlantis, Palm & Burj Khalifa
Fun day out
, Sep 2019
We had a lot of fun, going very fast on the jetsky. I wish we had more time to go even further as the tour was intended but due to other people not going as fast we didn't have enough time. Great pictures, wish we had some videos as well.
See the sites of Dubai from the water on this Jet Ski tour along the city’s waterfront. Choose from a variety of morning departure times and take in the view of Dubai’s breathtaking skyline while following a certified guide. Stop in front of the famous Burj Al Arab, a symbol of modern Dubai and the third-tallest hotel in the world. Bring a camera to capture incredible photos. Suitable for all skill levels. A safety briefing, instruction, and equipment are included.
We had the lead driver who did a good job. I wish the San bashing was a little more wild. It was pretty tame. I had signed up for the VIP package and I definitely received it would’ve came to food and the service however I was told that the package would also include the ATV but when I got there they said it did not include it and they wanted to charge me an extra $50 for it. I specifically asked the woman on the phone if the VIP package would include the TV and everything else and she said it did. However the rest of the experience was very good and I enjoyed the falconry exhibit as well as the dancing and fire eating exhibit.
Discover the beauty and customs of the desert on this Dubai desert safari. Leave Dubai in a comfortable 4x4 with a guide, and enjoy an exciting mix of traditional and modern desert adventures. Ride a camel, surf a sandboard down the Dubai sand dunes, and relax at a desert campsite as the sun sets. Get a henna tattoo, watch a ‘tanoura’ folk dance, and top off your trip with a delicious barbecue dinner, including shawrma station, and exotic belly dancing show under the stars as you sit around the campfire.
We waited 45 minutes for our tour guide to arrive because he got the information late that morning. We had to look for him in the car park before we went again with our journey. He seemed friendly but not very informative. When we got to the destination, we were ushered for the shortest camel ride I have experienced. They literally asked you to climbed on to the camel, walked about 5 minutes, take the picture and that was it. Then you have the option of doing the ATV ride with the extra cost if its not part of your booking already. Then the sand dune bashing. It was not as scary as I thought. But the highlight for me was the sledding. After about 60 minutes in the desert with all those activities, you take a rest as the car is getting cleaned and the tour guide took us back to our hotel. Our tour guide spent the whole time talking to someone over the phone on our way back to the hotel. It would have been nice to learn more about the city from someone who works there. Its a good experience to try but too expensive for an average hospitality.
Brilliant day trip! Did the four hour trip with camel ride, Dune Bashing and sand boarding. Our tour guide was Sadique and he was ace! He involved us all the way thru, took some incredible photos and made sure we got the best time possible. Definitely do this trip!!
Great time, great people. Everything went off as described. Exciting dune ride that lasted longer than I had anticipated. The camel ride was fun, the bbq very good and the entertainment well done. We had a great group of seven people and that made it all the more enjoyable!
Take a dune drive across the red sands outside Dubai while exploring the desert by 4WD vehicle. You’ll experience the thrill of dune bashing, sandboarding, and a camel ride. Upgrade your 4-Hour morning or afternoon adventure to a 7-hour and linger for a scenic sunset, with the addition of a barbecue dinner at a Bedouin-style desert camp. You’re treated like a VIP with belly dancing, henna, and other entertainment.
Shamju was incredible. He was patient with me, helped me take pictures. The whole experience was just so incredibly well done and we did so much for so little. Camel riding, sand boarding, quad biking, eating, etc. So much fun packed into so little time. Shamju made this experience.
My wife and I had an amazing time on this tour. We shared an SUV with 3 other very friendly people who were also on vacation. Our tour guide, Sandy, was very friendly, professional, and took many pictures of my wife and me. The quad bikes were very fun and did not feel too short. Sand boarding was cool even though most people fell off. The camel ride was a little short and sad given how sad the camels seemed (they were whining and had things covering their mouths). The food and dancing at the end was also very good - both delicious and entertaining. Great day overall!
No trip to Dubai is complete without an exciting trip into the desert. Spend an evening riding quad bikes, sandboarding down the dunes, and riding a camel like a Bedouin during this evening experience. After you’ve worked up your appetite, sit down for a delicious barbecue dinner accompanied by live belly dancing and traditional tanoura shows at an Arabian desert camp.
The entire program was great. My wife and I enjoy every aspect of the program. The service and the personnel were sensational. TK did an magnificent job on the 4x4 desert experience. The sunset was extraordinary and the entertainers had exceptional talent. We will definitely do again and We will used ABC Tours.
For 40 aed you can upgrade to VIP. Just for a seat with a back it is worth it. The food is also brought to your table. Driver was safe and ensured you felt the whole experience to the full. All shows at camp were entertaining.
Driver was courteous and knowledgeable about Dubai and its history. The Dune bashing was amazing! My husband and I really enjoyed the ATV rides and the dinner with camel ride, culture show and henna/hookah/refreshments. I'm very excited to book my Dubai clients to experience this tour! Highly rated !
Head into the desert outside Dubai for an evening of dining and entertainment. First, enjoy a thrilling dune bashing ride with an experienced driver at the wheel, then climb aboard your own quad bike for an adrenaline-fueled adventure. Take part in other activities such as hookah or camel riding as you enjoy traditional Arab music and dancing at a Bedouin camp. A full buffet dinner is served in addition to tea, coffee and other refreshments.
Dubai Heritage Land Rover Desert Safari with Traditional Dinner & Entertainment
Land Rover Safari
, Feb 2020
My wife and I really enjoyed the whole experience of this trip. From start to finish our guide and driver Kumur was friendly, helpful, very knowledgable and just a fun Person to be with. The whole trip was well organised and it was extremely interesting to learn about the culture of the Bedouins people.
Our trip into the Desert was absolutely amazing. We even got to see camel races as we drove east on Route 66. The wildlife got closer and closer and Felix did a fantastic job of keeping us informed while looking after us. The camel ride, the Henna, the falcon display and the dinner, and entertainment were awe inspiring. An excellent experience to be remembered.
Venture through the desert by vintage Land Rover and enjoy Arabic entertainments and dinner on this full-day experience from Dubai. Board an open-top Land Rover with a driver, and watch for wildlife as you drive into the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. See a falconry display and continue to a plush Bedouin-style camp within a royal residence.

High Red Dunes with Camel Ride, Sandboarding, Falcon Show and VIP BBQ Dinner
High red dunes safari
, Feb 2020
IQBAL was our tour guide and he was awesome!!! Extremely accommodating and patient. Showed us all the best photo spots. Kept us all safe. It was definitely worth taking this tour with IQBAL. Would most definitely do it again with him.
This safari is going to be a real thrill for adventure seekers and for the ones who seek for solace. The silence and serenity of Lehbab desert region offers a sightseeing that is breathtaking and unforgettable. If you ever dream to marvel the beauty of red dunes and also, to experience desert life….. Alone or with your dear ones, then this package is exclusively for you!
Premium Desert Safari, Barbeque, 3 Shows, Camel ride, Sandboard at Majlis camp
Great tour for adult family and friends
, Feb 2020
Family and friends enjoyed our Dubai vacation and the desert safari made our vacation perfect!! Loved everything including the desert ride, camel rides and VIP treatment for the show! I recommend this tour to everyone!!
Fun excursion. I was disappointed that the sand dunes ride was not very exciting. I thought I booked the tour with the rollercoaster hills, but the inclines were less than thrilling. I recommend the following improvements: Replace interior roof handles in the SUV (all but one was broken off). Riders we're holding on to the roll bar and would have crushed there hand if the SUV actually rolled over. Clean the SUV from time to time--it was funky. Train the 2nd driver on customer service. At each stop he didn't say why we were stopping. We just had to figure it out. He should communicate better with customers. Dinner, dancers, henna, and camel ride were great fun. My friends registered for the tour tomorrow. I hope they enjoy it as much as we did.
The desert safari was overall a cool experience, but certainly overpriced with constant upcharging. They provided henna tattoos, but only basic designs were free, and more for typical henna designs which was not indicated beforehand. It hasn't been a week yet and my design is already fading. All over the camp were people trying to sell something like 10 dirhams for a picture with a falcon. They had really good food but waited until the end to provide it unless you paid $10 USD extra for VIP. Also, they took photos, printed them out and put them in paper frames then requested 200 dirhams for them. The photos were nice but I didn't bring much money being in the desert so they took them back and probably threw them out which was a complete waste. At no point did any of the staff mention that there was a charge for the photos. I contacted them after on both Whatsapp and email to try to purchase the digital photos and have yet to hear anything back from them. Go on the experience but make sure to bring lots of dirhams!
Ideal for culture connoisseurs, this desert safari features a heart-pounding dune bashing session, a camel ride, live cultural performances including belly dancing, a photoshoot in Arabic costume, and a BBQ buffet dinner. From Dubai, visit an oasis and a camel farm in the Arabian Desert before watching a magical sunset. Learn about Arabian culture at a desert camp inspired by a Bedouin village, try your hand at sandboarding, and let local artists decorate your hands and feet with henna. Dinner, unlimited soft drinks, and hotel pickup and drop-off in central Dubai are included.
We were booked for a 6 hour tour. Door to door was 10 hours. No complaints though since our guide, Lucy from Ocean Air (local office) was outstanding. She kept us moving all day. We may have saved a half hour but.. We went everywhere that we should go in Abu Dhabi (Mosque, Palace, etc). Well worth the money especially since it was a group of 12.
Our guide (Haseeb Khan) was brilliant , he was helpful , friendly and knowledgeable . The main sight we wanted to see were the mosque and the palace which need to be seen with you own eyes because pictures do not do them justice at all . The trip as a whole was very enjoyable and i would have no problem in recommending it to anyone .
Well organised day tripby Oceanair, good communication about pickup time at the hotel, friendly guide (Latif) and experienced driver. Food for lunch was a small self-service buffet, we got to sit outside with a view of the presidential palace. Overall a very good day trip!
The UAE is about more than Dubai: its capital city, Abu Dhabi, warrants a visit, too. This full-day trip lets you see it with ease, and with just a small group. Traveling between the sights by air-conditioned minivan, it covers all the must-sees, with visits to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Photo stop at Emirates Palace, Etihad Towers, and more. Entrance fees, plus pickup and drop-off at selected Dubai hotels and locations included.
It was perfect, Ashraf the driver was so nice and funny. We enjoyed every minute of it.
We were picked up at the time we agreed, and Ashraf was all the time asking if we were ok and really looked well after us. Also the guy by the Quad was very nice and the people for the Camel Ride. It was a perfect activity

The Heli Tour was exceptional! I have never done it before and it was just fantastic! I went together with my son (24) and we were totally impressed. The 12 minutes ride is quite good to get an impression of Dubai and its highlights.

Dubai: Sunset Camel Trek & Red Dunes Safari with BBQ at Al Khayma Camp
one of the best experience and utter professionalism from ocean air
, Jan 2020
First i want to thank SIDDIQ ( DRIVER PARTNER OCEAN AIR). I Have been to desert safaris in the past but i wiil definitely say this was THE BEST . All the events were gracefully completed , and it was photo perfect safari with the one of the finest dance show and fire show. moreover the buffet dinner was delectable and delicious. siddiq clicked photos for us which was out of the world.
Experience a stunning desert sunset and exhilarating desert activities on this evening adventure from Dubai. Go dune bashing in a 4x4, zoom through the sands on a quad bike, master the dunes on a sandboard, and take a ride on a camel all before dinner. Arrive at a local desert camp where you can partake in cultural activities before enjoying a delectable barbecue dinner accompanied by live entertainment.
The desert safari was wow, we had a great driver, Sajid, a very professional driver and very passionate about his job. Because of him we had a great time, a lot of fun and we returned with lots of beautiful photos at the sunset, directed and made by him. You really are good, Sajid!
About the desert camp, here it can be improved. First, the ladies from our group went at henna painting and because of this they didn't catch all types of food anymore. The camel riding means several meters traveled, so don't expect too much.
But overall we spent great time!
It was amazing! I highly recommend this Safari. Our driver Muhammad Zaman was very nice and fun. Very good photographer also always taking care of us! Everything was better than I imagine. Good food, amazing people. Can be a little bit cold at night so take something with you to cover.
Embark on a desert safari that includes several mini-adventures in one tour. First, head outside the city for a dune bashing session. See “Big Red,” a famous dune with sides as steep as a black diamond ski run. Then head to a Bedouin camp to enjoy activities such as camel riding, henna painting, hookah, traditional dancing, a buffet barbecue dinner, and more.
We had a truly amazing experience aboard this ship! The staff was top-notch and the food couldn't have been better, our best meal in Dubai by far! Don't leave Dubai without going on this lovely dinner cruise, you are treated like royalty!
From start to finish this was an amazing night! Staff excellent, food fabulous & entertainment amazing! This is my second time cruising with Bateaux & won’t be the last! Well done Bateaux for making memories x
Glide along Dubai Creek and admire Dubai’s skyline over a gourmet dinner on this Bateaux Dubai evening cruise. Walk the red carpet onto the sightseeing boat and savor a welcome drink and canapés as you admire the floodlit landmarks from the glass-enclosed or outdoor decks. Pass top Dubai attractions including the Clock Tower and Al Maktoum Bridge, and enjoy a 4-course gourmet dinner serenaded by a pianist. Choose a selection of sodas to accompany your meal, or upgrade to a package of house wines and more.
The tour itself was really good, if you are only in Dubai for a couple of days this is great way to cover off a couple of the main attractions. The stop at the Burj Al Arab and Jumerieh beach was good and very simple, would have been good to point out bathrooms here. The overall organisation was a bit ropey, we had 31 in our group and the guide who was great had trouble keeping track of everyone.
The Spice Souk was the highlight for us, some of the shops staff are a little pushy and try the hard sell and it s very off putting, also in the Gold souk the hard sell is a lot to take including being offered the watches and fake bags.
Overall a great tour to do to see Dubai
Discover the best of Dubai on a half-day Dubai sightseeing tour with an expert guide.

We were excited the moment our driver introduced himself as Iqbal, as we’ve read past reviews of him. Truly he has a great personality. A skillful driver, a knowledgeable tourguide, an excellent photographer, all in one person topped with a good sense of humor. Highly recommended!
fantastic experience with Oscar Knight Desert Safari
, Feb 2020
it was a fantastic experience for my family of 4. my husband and i are 60 years old, and my 2 children are in their 20s. We all had a wonderful time with our great guide, Abdullah who is very conversant in the english language.

Dubai Morning Safari: Red Dunes, Sandboarding, Camel Ride & Brunch at Al Khayma
Brilliant Tour - would recommend
, Jan 2020
This was by far our favourite tour in Dubai. We experienced an excellent service from the moment we were picked up! We were really well looked after by Nouman (who was also hilarious and had a great selection of what I think was 'Arabian House/Dubstep' for the 4x4 sand dune bashing)!
In the space of 4-5hrs we had done sand dune quad biking (this was an extra cost, but worth it), 4x4 sand dune bashing, sand boarding, camel riding and eaten a traditional Arabian brunch! It was just the best way to spend a morning on our short trip to Dubai.
Excellent value and we even came away with some great videos/pictures - never experienced anything like it. Really recommend! :)
Akbar was a great guide. He was friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable and had a great time with us. Everyone associated with this tour was amazing and we would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a unique experience.
Take advantage of your morning on a half-day tour of the Arabian Desert with convenient round-trip transport from your Dubai hotel. In addition to navigating, your guide offers a range of activities for all ages, including dune bashing, sandboarding, and camel rides. The tour features refreshments and a full brunch.
Our tour guide and driver were amazing. We are from the United States and mistakenly selected a Spanish tour. Luckily when met with our tour guide, he spoke 4 languages (1 being Spanish). He was very knowledgeable and gave us enough time to grab lunch, explore, and see the sights.
I enjoyed the tour of the Mosque, but had higher expectation of Louvre and was somewhat disappointed. Overall, it was nice though and we had a very good time. I would not recommend the Cafe' inside Louvre. The food was't good, and it was expensive! Our tour guide (Shakill?) was a very nice person and he explained the features of the Mosque quite well.
Visiting two of Abu Dhabi’s cultural attractions—the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Louvre Abu Dhabi—from Dubai independently means relying on buses or cabs. This small-group tour includes transport and entrance fees, leaving you to enjoy the sights. Admire the Louvre's art before discovering the Grand Mosque on a guided tour, all with the assurance your return transport is organized. Central hotel pickup and drop-off provide final, convenient touches.
