Fill a morning in Dubai’s desert with sports and pursuits on this half-day activity-based tour.

After a longer-than-standard dune bash, ride a camel, try sand boarding, take off on quad bike, and watch a falconry display. Sodas and water, plus 4x4 hotel pickup and drop-off are included.

I booked this tour for my son and I while we were in Dubai on Earth Day. I was pleasantly surprised it was a private tour. The camel ride was awesome as we have never ridden camel through the desert before. Our driver customized the tours per our requests and we had tons of fun sand boarding and sand bashing. It was our first time on quads and it was super fun to ride through their dunes on the quads. My son had an excellent time and that is something for a 17 year old boy. It was a half day tour, as booked, and our driver gave us some excellent tips for seeing more of Dubai while we were in town. It's been so long that I can't recall his name but he was very friendly and provided us an memorable Earth Day.
We looked at many of these tours and are sooooooo glad we picked this one. Ali, our guide was amazing: knowledgable, affable, fun, and safe. I would recommend this over some of the more basic tours because this one gives you a little bit of everything.
Our trip was an amazing experience. As we were the only 2 guests, it was a very personal trip. Our guide Prasanth was absolutely courteous and careing. In general, exactly the one we were looking for. All activities included which we wanted, lots of time with it and very personal. Thank Prasanth!!
Had a personalised tour for just the 2 of us. Saleem made sure we enjoyed our trip and found good sand for sandboarding/ dune bashing. Camel ride very relaxing and peaceful and quad biking well supervised and started off easier then difficulty of area travelled on increased once we were used to the quad bikes. Always plenty of drink on offer and Saleem took loads of photos for us . The area we went to was free of other tourists making it a bit more bespoke and different from another trip we had done in the previous year. The falcon photo was fairly brief but we got chance to hold the bird as well as have it on our shoulder.
Can’t recommend this tour enough. Very professional, our guide couldn’t have been more helpful and was exactly what we were hoping for. Great experience for the children to see a different part of Dubai.
This tour was just awesome - but what made it really special was Ali and the staff. We took this option so we would most of the activities I half a day. Ali picked us promptly from the hotel - he is very knowledgeable of the area and a really fun person to spend time with. He made us feel very special as we were only the two of us. If you look for an all around experience I could not recommend it more! Also thank you to the gentleman who took us with the camel. A real gentleman! Go for it and you wont regret it!
Awesome tour with a professional guide. We chose this tour because it perfectly combines all the activities we wanted to do during a trip to the desert. And we made the right choice since it exceeded our expectations. Big thanks to Ali, our professional and kind tour guide. Highly recommended!
This tour was fantastic, more than what we expected. Our guide, Pershan, was very friendly and helpful. Helped us took many good pictures and videos while we're having fun. And he was an excellent driver for dune bashing too! Really worth every penny, and i definitely will be back for this! :)
Un guide français super sympa, une journée incroyable malgré la grosse chaleur en ce mois d'août 47 mais cela ne nous a pas empêché de profiter pleinement avec 2 enfants de 5 et 7 ans ! Tout est parfaitement organisé et serviettes et boissons fraîches à volonté durant toute la durée de l'aventure eau, jus de fruits, soda.... Et le surf sur les dunes c'est juste une expérience unique ! Encore merci à Sofiane, notre guide, pour sa gentillesse et sa sympathie. A recommander !
