Traveler Tips

This is a must and a great trip with a great company.
I would suggest wearing close toe shoes because the sand was hot.
Bring a jacket for evening and some cash to buy stuff at the camp/tipping, etc.

I am very glad we booked this experience! Our driver Ramzan made it completely amazing! The dune bashing experience was very new and interesting and actually a lot of fun, the campsite was absolutely perfect with a lot of really good food. All along the trip Ramzan was super attentive and helpful and he even told us some interesting facts about the areas we were in which made the trip more authentic. There is simply nothing negative to say, we loved every minute of this experience!
Amazing Experience

Siddik was prompt, friendly and patient with everyone on the tour. Very friendly group of organisers. Amazing hospitality, amazing food and amazing venue.
Absolutely fabulous
HASAN_K, Mar 2023
It was an absolutely amazing experience for our family of four. Our guide, Mr. Lahcen Chahbi has over 28 years of experience as a tour guide and that obviously showed in the way he managed the whole itinerary for the day. We did not miss a single attraction and he coordinated every aspect to perfection. Our kids really enjoyed the Quad biking on the red dunes and the camel rides. Lahcen tackled the dunes in his 4x4 like a veteran he his during the dune bashing experience. And to top it all off, it was simply mesmerizing to soak up the traditional middle eastern hospitality at the Al-Khayma camp. The three cuisine food and the 5 star live barbecue was a gastronomical delight. The Tanoura dance and the fire show displayed the amazing skill and the artistic talent of the performers. This Desert Safari on its own really made our Dubai trip. Will strongly recommend.

Disappointment. Don't even bother. Go with someone else.
Asit_V, Feb 2023
The last time I took the tour in 2021, we went to the Al Khayma Camp. This is why I booked this trip. We ended up going to a camp called Al Marmoom. Honestly Al Marmoom is a landscaped swamp in the desert. The Al Khaymah camp had an awesome warm vibe with great food. They even had Ouzy, a local speciality. This camp Al Marmoom had very poor food. The ambience was dead and there was no warmth. We arrived very late at the camp. Spent all our time on the road between the dune bashing spot and the campsite and barely spent all of 100 minutes in this camp with poor food and the ladies had no time to get their henna. We reached too late to see the camels. This was really a rip off. Honestly, not worth 100 dollars. The saving grace was the professionalism of the Driver Nicky, and the quality of the new land cruiser. Other than that, nothing at all could save this disaster. It is now a money making factory and this is definitely too expensive to justify the below-mediocre quality. Never again with Ocean Tours.

Very nice and knowledgeable driver/guide. He was able to answer every question about Dubai and the area. The food at the camp was delicious.
Highly recommend!
shellyvelani, Oct 2022
Highly recommend this tour! We had Nasir as our tour guide and he was great. There are some parts of the tour you have to pay more for like the quad bikes but the rest of its included - hotel pickup/drop, camel rides, jeep dune part, sandboarding, and dinner/show. The dinner was great since we have vip service and skipped the buffet (totally worth it). Nasir took great care of us the whole time - highly recommend!! Definitely a once in a lifetime experience.
So much fun
Christine_T, Oct 2022
All I was it was amazing. All were new experiences from Dune bashing to sand surfing and riding the quad bike, having henna applied, camel riding and holding a hawk. So much fun

Great desert safari experience.
Arun_P, Oct 2022
Dune bashing was the highlight during oir trip. Driver Rosh (Roshin) was excellent & knowledgeable. He explained us all the details about the experience and made our experience much better than expected. Food at the camp was excellent and overall arrangement was fantastic. Must do activity if visiting Dubai.

The tour was honestly one of the highlights of my trip to the UAE! Sohail was such a great guide that gave us great recommendations and made sure we had a good time. Everyone was so hospitable and was so welcoming. This was definitely worth every penny - would highly recommend!
Marco_M, Apr 2022
Beautiful experience, we went from the metropolis of Dubai to the immensity of the desert on the border with Oman, with a 1 hour journey accompanied by our guide Mr. Tilanga, excellent driver, very helpful and funny. The dinner at the desert camp was really good and plentiful, the dance shows were very exciting. Go there!
Highly Satisfied Solo Traveler
