We where picked up at our hotel at the right time by our private guide Tiago. A 45 minutes drive with a stop at the Kamel racing station brought us to the the national park. Tiago had a lot of information about Dubai, so the time run short. The experience at the national park is amazing. We saw many antilopes and gazelles. Tiago had a immense knowledge about the dessert, animals and plants what he shared with us. The stop at the desert resort for breakfast was outstanding. We had a table on the outside with a beautiful view and gazelles around us. We where skeptical about a desert trip as there are many companies with camps of hundreds of people. We had the luck as we picked the best of the private tours. When you want a private tour viatours is the best choice. I lost my classes in the car. Tiago informed me and the day later he brought it back to me.

our driver and guide was wonderful and full of information, the dunes were stunning and so close to Dubai centre. Beautifully quiet and such a fantastic location. Breakfast count not be faulted. The only thing Dubai doesn't have is much wild life but I would recommend this trip for all the other things I have mentioned.

Great area full of Oryx. Nice breakfast at Al Maha. Two big blights. We shared a car with 2 others which meant as we were picked up second one of us had to sit in the middle. Which is both uncomfortable and restricts the viewing and also reduces the opportunity's for photography. The tour guide should ensure that seats are rotated so every one has a chance to sit in good viewing seats. Alternatively provide a vehicle that ensures that everyone gets a window seat. Speaking of photography there wasn't a lot of effort made to ensure we had every opportunity to take photos of the wildlife.

A great first experience in the desert. Short and sweet. The car was very comfortable Range Rover and well suited to the drive through the dunes. The driver gave good information on Dubai and the desert. I thought the actual experience would be a little more sporty, but in fact it was leisurely. The highlight is the breakfast at the Al Maha Resort - plentiful, high quality and with a view on the desert.

Highly recommended. I just take away one star because I thought it would be a little more exciting.

We loved this tour and breakfast at Al Maha Resort was just wonderful. Food and service were excellent. We have an interest in the wildlife and as constructive criticism perhaps the guides need to have a better understanding how to approach wildlife so that photographs could be taken before the animals were scared away. We felt a little rushed on occasion. But overall it was as we hoped it would be.

My family enjoyed this conservation drive. The tour guide Sharif was professional, friendly and informative. There were plenty of opportunity to take photographs of the peaceful, scenic desert environment. The only critique is that sightings of any wildlife was few and far between and this was disappointing. If it wasn't for Sharif's engaging conversation this would have just been an expensive drive through the desert. The food in Al Maha Resort was lovely. The staff were nice too. They gave us a menu and told us to order anything on it. The service there was really good. In total, I am glad I booked this tour for my family.

This tour was really good. Eric our guide was knowledgeable, humorous and friendly. He took us to the camel race tracks although it was not a part of the tour. The break fast at Almaha resort was very nice.
