Our guide Ali was very knowledgeable and well organized. Dune bashing was unique and heart-pounding. Shows and camel riding were excellent.
Activities in ABC Dersert Camp could be organized better, too much idle time between shows and BBQ.

I was excited for this tour but never imagined it would be such a highlight of a trip. The Arabian Desert is such a foreign landscape to me it was incredible just being there. Dune bashing was such an exhilarating experience... and riding a camel turned out to be a must do!

I will say there was a bit of a lull between the daytime/sunset activities and the dinner program. There was about 60 minutes with not much going on. Dinner and the shows were excellent and we were still home before 10pm.

Had a wonderful time doing this Safari with ABC Tours. Prompt collection, good quality vehicle and felt safe throughout whole experience. Dune busting was fantastic..would highly recommend paying the extra for the quad bike experience!!

The whole experience was great! The food was really good (even what I was not sure of LOL). Our driver was really cool and the desert and camel ride was incredible. The entertainment was great but sitting on my bottom was painful LOL

I was totally satisfied with the trip.

You have to try this experience out. Dune bashing is a must experience when in Dubai. Wilson our driver was the most accommodating for me and my family of 7, highly recommend him as a guide. The dinner was ok, we upgraded to VIP but ended up being further from the entertainment during dinner which caused less interaction.

It was a great experience from start to finish. They even pick you up from the hotel and the whole experience is amazing. This one is not to miss out. They make it safe safe while fun.

This was a great excursion. They were efficient in communicating the pickup times via What’s app in the days before the excursion. The pickup was on time and we only made one other pickup and then started the tour so it was very efficient. We made one stop for bathrooms where there was the option to ride an ATV Quad bike (we did not do that but it was a convenient bathroom break anyway.)
Then the driver let air out of the tires to enable the ride and we began the ride through the desert from there.
It was lots of fun with spins around the sand and two stops for photos, the second one being for great sunset photos over the desert.

Then we arrived at the desert camp where we were taken to the VIP seating which we had upgraded to on the What’s App the day before . I recommend the upgrade as it’s only $10 per person but the seats are much more comfortable (anyone who has a bad back like me should definitely do the upgrade, as the regular seating is on cushions around tables around the stage but those cushions are not chairs and thus don’t have anything to support your back, whereas the VIP seats were really comfortable cushioned chairs with cushioned backs around tables on a raised platform just above the standard seats and overlooking the stage. Also the VIP seats got dinner and drinks served right to your table rather than needing to walk to the buffet yourself.

After being seated we had the option to do the camel ride and we did that (it was free ) which was fun.

Then we went back to our table and they began the first two shows. The spinning whirling dirvish dancer was good and the fire dancer was an amazing show and great fun. Then they brought us dinner and after dinner was the belly dance show which was really great and exotic
too.
It was also nice that since this camp is exclusive to their passengers, it was limited to around 50 people so it was not as crowded as I have heard many others that share camps become. It was also nice that we were not hassled by anyone trying to sell us anything like I had read many reviews of other camps.
They did have one booth you could barter to buy local things and we did barter to buy two pillow covers with embroidered camels that we could take home to put on couch pillows at home but it was just nice that it was our choice to visit that booth rather than having anyone approaching us to hawk their stuff.
All together I would definitely suggest this tour for a fun, no hassle desert and show experience

Our driver and guide was very courteous, kind and proactive! He provided an amazing experience right from hotel pickup, dune bashing and sand boarding. The evening dinner and live events were also great.

This was a lot of fun. TJ was an excellent driver and made the dunebashing extra exciting. Sitting in the VIP stands and having our meals and drinks delivered made the dining experience extra special.
