Thrilling desert ride with our tour guide Kismet very capable driver who thrilled us with his extreme driving through the Sandhills of the Desert ...Kismet was very entertaining and made our tour very enjoyable
Exhillarating and a must if your visiting Dubai Great fun
Booking was very easy. Pick-Up at the hotel and all the organizational stuff worked great! Our driver was very friendly and funny and not least a very good driver in the desert! It was a great experience!
Great morning trip with our guide Noor. Had to pay extra for quad bikes but worth it. Sand dune driving was as good as a rollercoaster with our experienced driver.
Excellent tour. A very friendly guide picked us up and provided useful commentary as we drive through Dubai to the desert. The safari experience was excellent followed by a quick camel ride. Well worth the money. Magical memories made.
It was a very good tour. Well planned and on time. A must experience for anyone coming to Dubai if you have not done this before.
Fantastic.the driver, the drive, the desert.all excellent. Thank you!
Nice Tour, very friendly and Professional driver.
Next Time again
Regards Ferdinand and family
Very good dessert safari. Would only suggest the morning trip, not the full day as you could be stuck in the dessert until late night, waste of a day, would get borrowing with a lot of standing about, afternoon would just be too hot, so earlier the better. The dune bashing was about just over an hour, after which time I started to feel sea sick which I don't usually, and after the hour one dune is the same as the last one. Good friendly driver and staff we were looked after and safe, would go again-morning only. Enjoy.
Excursion bien organisée, timing, vehicule , chauffeur: rien à redire... permet de sortir de la ville et de voir...le desert .
Par contre estomac fragile s'abstenir, ça bouge vraiment beaucoup et devient franchement désagréable au bout d'un moment et pourtant je ne suis pas trop fragile habituellement de ce coté là!
Je n'aurais pas choisi cette excursion sachant cela...
We booked the morning safari. We were picked up from our hotel by our guide who did not welcome us, give us his name or provide any commentary or information about anything we did unless asked. The only time he had a conversation with us was to try and sell some other tours. We were driven to the desert location where there is a very basic shop and had to pay extra for the quad bikes 150AED for 2 people which we had not expected given the price of the tour. The other couple with us were also unaware of the extra cost. The included camel ride was 2 minutes around the corner, photos then back. The best part was the dune driving. Our driver was very good at the actual driving and it was exciting to be out in the dunes. The driver in the other car we were tagging along with was older and seemed much more friendly and helpful. We stopped at the top of a dune for more photos and sand boarding for those that wanted to. This involved sitting on the board and sliding down a short hill. Only 3 of the combined group of 10 elected to do this as it didn't look like much fun especially getting back up the hill. Back into the cars for another few hills then back to the shop area while the tyres were refilled. We were given one bottle of water for the whole trip not cooled. The return drive was interesting as our driver raced back with loud Arabic music playing. He had little regard for our enjoyment or comfort and did not even farewell us as we got out of the car at our hotel. We did the morning tour on Thursday 28th for the company information as our driver did not bother to introduce himself or engage us in any conversation.
On the website it states an 8-8.30 pickup, but as soon as you book this is changed to 7-7.30. So we had to sit in the hotel reception from 7am, we then got a phone call on my mobile at 7.30 am which cost me to answer to say he is running late. He finally turned up at 7.45 and then took us to a petrol station to fill up. When we finally got to the sand dunes we spent 15 minutes riding on them and then taken to another place where you can pay extra to ride buggies. We then drove home and was back in our room by 10.30 am. A lot of waiting around and driving to the dunes for 15 minutes on the sand dunes :
