First off... if you are traveling to Dubai and you want to do an OVERNIGHT desert safari, do NOT come to Dubai in the summer, the overnight part is not available by any company here in the summer no matter what it says on viator. That being said, this tour is not overnight, I repeat, NOT overnight. I found this out when I called the tour company when I arrived in Dubai asking about my ticket and that's when I was told that because it's summer here and way too hot, there is no overnight part of the tour. The problem with booking online for tours like this is that most of the tour companies all go to the same camp site, so different people have paid for different things which causes a lot of confusion. It was a bittersweet experience because some of the staff or vendors there were really nice and offered us the things that we were promised were free, but other staff members were very rude and even outright lied to us...offering things for free but then asking us to pay. The other tourists that were there were also very obnoxious and rude and ruined a lot of aspects of the experience. The food was not that great and there were a lot of people physically fighting at the buffet and pushing and shoving. I gave this tour a review of 2 stars because there were a lot of fun aspects about it and I do think it's worth doing but under different circumstances weather-wise and probably booking with another company. Plus the dune bashing was fun, our tour guide was nice and helpful, the shows were fantastic, and the atmosphere was cool.. and also that the tour company refunded the money for not getting the overnight tour... but again I recommend booking with another company and NOT in the summer, and also that if you book with viator, be sure to call the tourism company as well to make sure you're getting what you paid for
