We have just come back from a stopover in Dubai, and would highly recommend this tour. As it was about 45 degs during the day, I booked a morning safari, but be warned, it's still very hot out there! Our guide picked us up as expected, although I called the day before to confirm I'd given the right hotel information. He was lovely, although unfortunately I can't remember his name, something like Winjata? I mention this because he was great to chat to and just a really nice guy and I hope someone lets him know! There were 5 of us in the 4x4, and only 1 of the group was chatty, the others not so, and this makes a huge difference to your trip. There was plenty of water, and toilet facilities once you get to the desert. The quad biking was awesome, and having done some research, I would really recommend wearing long trousers and long sleeved clothing - you will burn otherwise! Don't forget your sunglasses too. You get given a helmet and are guided and feel safe at all times. I got stuck going up a dune but with the breaks on, you don't move and my guide came running over to help. The sand duning was fun but I could only manage to go down once. That's the easy part, i had a minor asthma attack trying to walk back up the dune, it's exhausting even though you wouldn't think so. Also i was wearing sandals, and the sand was BURNING my feet!! I can't describe the pain! You then do some camel riding for about 10-15mins. My first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. All in all, absolutely fabulous. Thank you so much to the guides for making it such an enjoyable first experience.
Awesome experience. Our guide was very knowledgable about the history of Dubai and gave us lots of interesting information on the ride out to the desert. The ATV's, sand boarding, and camel ride were all great fun! Would recommend to anyone visiting Dubai.
Lovely tour guide who was on time and we had the whole desert to ourselves!
Definitely worth doing the morning tour!
This was a lot of fun, the driver to camp site was hilarious. He drove over the sand dunes in the truck really fast giving the passengers a thrill. The ATV and camel ride was awesome. The sand boarding was a total workout climbing back up the hill.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience, the guides were very obliging and friendly which made the experience much more pleasurable, very cool things to do in the dessert
Had a great time on the tour and definitely would recommend it for others traveling to Dubai!
Amazing!! Our tour guide was spectacular. He arrived to pick us up from the hotel on time and prepared us for a great day. During the ride to the desert, he provided us with information about Dubai as well as the upcoming developments of the city. He had a great personality and spoke English very well. The tour was great. The 4 wheelers were very fun! I don't really like the sand boarding but that's a personal preference. It had nothing to do with the tour guide or the company itself. All three associates were very helpful and friendly during the entire safari. I highly recommend this tour and company!!
I feel this was really good value for money. We got to do everything in a reasonable amount of time. In the Dubai heat you don't really need to be out all day. The driver was extremely prompt. He was waiting for me as I arrived at the foyer and was really friendly. He introduced us to the other day trippers and was really informative on the journey to the desert. He gave us a brief history lesson.
Even though it was Ramadan they gave us ice cold water which was much needed. We aren't used to the heat and really needed it!
I would 100 recommend this trip. And would be happy to use them again in the future :
Really enjoyed the experience, the quad bikes were easy to ride and the guide took us on quite a long trip through the dunes with a stop halfway to try out some sandboarding, and finishing with a camel ride. It was all very well organised and there was no hanging about. We were supplied with lots of water and the quad bike ride was just right, not too difficult to be scary and not too easy to be boring! Sandboarding was good, only downside was the walk back up the dune afterwards! Our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable.
