Arif was our driver and we were collected from our hotel on time. He described some places of interest en route. We then stopped for 30 minutes at a meeting point where some members of the party went on quad bikes. The time passed quickly. Next we headed into the desert in the 4x4. The was an amazing experience! Very skilful driving and we felt safe at all times - not for the faint hearted though! Next was sand surfing and we both had a go at this as we were able to sit on the board and go down the sand dune! Then it was on to the Bedouin camp for camel riding, henna painting, traditional food and dancing. The driver explained everything as we went along and everything was clear. This was a birthday treat from my husband and we both loved every minute of it and thought it was good value for money.
a Special Thanks to our driver and tour guide Mr. Aamir Baba for making our tour trip a wonderful experience he give us a GREAT information's about U.A.E. and much more Thanks again Aamir
Very fun evening. Dune bashing - more than any roller coaster imaginable!!! Great guide. Highly recommend.
Nabeel our driver was on time to pick us up. Great communication skills .Informed us what was expected on the tour. Also while driving to the desert he pointed out places of interest with a brief description. Once we got to the desert this is where the fun started. Great driving skills gave us a awesome time. Awesome 4 wheel driving and great camel riding. Family loved it. Great dinner and show. Nabeel took care off us from the time he picked us up from the hotel to the time he dropped us back. Highly recommend.
Thanks for everything is amazing experience and services for my family is very greatful fot the memories he helped me creat
We took this excursion one day before our RCI cruise. Mohammed was our wonderful guide. He was kind, attentive, professional and a skilled dune bashing driver. Our group included my husband and I from USA plus a family of 5 from Italy, 2 adults with 3 children (age ranged from teen to 5 year old). We were picked up promptly from two different hotels. First stop was the ATV track, then full of fun dune bashing drive and sand boarding with photo opportunities. Next, we arrived at the Bedouin desert camp, where we were entertained by the Turkish dancer, belly dancer and the fire dancer. During the show we were offered a BBQ dinner, beverages and snacks. There were plenty of food options to choose from and everything we tried tasted good. Girls were also offered a henna temporary tattoo/hand painting. Then at the end our group was offered a camel ride. Two persons per camel and our guide Mohammad was kind to snap a few photos of the two of us individually and our entire group. From my observation, everyone in our group enjoyed each of the events and Mohammed kept checking on us if we had any questions or concerns. This was the best excursion we booked in Dubai, even better than our helicopter ride we took the next day.
Fantastic tour, friendly host/guide. Meal was well presented with the highlighted show @ the end. Outstanding!
The experience itself was great. I loved being in the desert. The dune bashing is great. You have to try sand boarding. The only drawback was our driver. I think he was having an off day. He was rude. There was a mix up with our pick up point. I was at one cruise terminal and the driver was at another. He didn't want to drive over to pick me up. I had to ask him repeatedly to come and get me.
Some of the activities were good some of the other not so great, reason of that score.
On the good part:
- Ponctuality of the driver for hotel pick-up
- The desert part of the day, including sand bashing
- The BBQ and evening show. Simple but well organized
What was not so good:
- Our driver was driven much too fast in the city roads and highways. No reasons for stressing us
- The first stop in the meeting camp without any interest,
- Alos forget the Quad and Camel option.
As a proposal, for the first stop, instead putting us in a tourist trap, try to find something more authentic, a desert museum, explaining us the story of the desert life before Dubai construction or the life of the actual farmers.
It's a nice ride for tourists, but they are all the same. They get you at the hotel, take you to a place to make a ride with quad cycle (optional). If you don't want it, You will have to wait for your colleagues to complete the ride. After that, they make the rally in the desert sand, with music, etc. It's OK. After that, camel ride, dinner in a sort of desert camp. Beer is very expensive (as alcohol in general in UAE). Coffee, tea, dates. You can try arabic garments. dinner is a buffet, don't expect a master chef's meal. It's simple, but ok. Belly dance. Then, return to your hotel. It's a nice experience, but totally for tourists.
Enjoy an adventure-packed desert safari and barbecue on this 6 - 7 hour afternoon and evening trip from Dubai. Cruise into the desert by 4x4, and with a highly trained driver, head into high dunes for a 30- to 45-minute dune bash. After sand boarding and a sunset photo op, enjoy activities like camel riding, mineral water and additional drinks, try a Shisha pipe, decorate your hands with paintings by Henna tattoo artists, dress up and take pictures in traditional Arabic costumes Open buffet dinner BBQ and Vegetarians.
