Visit: Funtours Desert Safari Dubai, Dubai 114242 United Arab Emirates
The excursion begins with a pick up at your accommodation in Dubai where you will be driven to the deserts on the outskirts of the city. Once you arrive, you have your choice of a short camel ride or a henna tattoo session. Other optional activities are available, such as quad biking (additional cost) and taking photographs with a falcon (additional cost).
As the sunset descends over the dunes, help yourself to a delicious barbecue buffet dinner. After dinner you can enjoy Arabic coffee and try a an optional puff on a shisha. Finally experience classic Arabic entertainment in the shape of belly dancing and the fast spinning "Tanoura" shows before departing back to your accommodation in Dubai where your tour will end.

We were picked up by our guide Munir at the time that was arranged. He was an excellent guide very helpful and courteous. He took excellent care of my elderly disabled mother and ensured all her needs were met. He was obliging and knowleable in taking photos and knew the best locations to take them.
We paid extra to do the quad biking which was great fun and reasonably priced, although health and safety was questionable.
The food in the desert was very good and the entertainment was also a good standard.
Overall an excellent evening out and great value for money. We all enjoyed our trip.
This was a great safari as the entertainment was more enjoyable than some others. Yes the camel ride is short but there is a lot of people waiting so for what it is, It’s ok. The henna girl was all hennaed out because of the amount of people waiting, the dessert is cool so you can take lots of photos and enjoy the surrounds and for something different it is a good experience. The food is okay but I wouldn’t expect much for the amount of people they’re cooking for so just take it as it comes and enjoy the experience
We had a great time with our two little ones. The driver was very friendly and explained everything to us. Would highly recommend this for families traveling with small children.
Over all our evening was great.
We had concerns, this was our first time to Dubai and we trusted the guide to put our best interest first.
After a 90 minute ride into God knows where we stopped at a local attraction where we could have rode dune buggies for a fee in desert. There were two other couples riding with us and we all chose to use the restroom and await our driver whom disappeared for about twenty minutes.
At his return he found each of us eagerly awaiting him cause we didn’t know where we were and why he chose to stop at this attraction that we did not want to participate in.
When he arrived we asked how much further to our location? He answered about ten minutes and about twenty minutes later we arrived in the middle of the desert switched to another vehicle and taken to the choice area.
When we got there the same dune buggies were available at the site as well.
So my concern was why have us pay another vendor for something that we would have received at our outing?
After all that confusion the evening we very well. The food was great, we upgraded for 100 aed for a table. The show was fantastic and I got my first real henna tattoo that has lasted longer that the lady promised.
So we had a really good time!
Great night out well worth the price when compared to eating out in Dubai. Good entertainment and value for money.
We had only 2 days in Dubai and it was a perfect option for us to do night time, a little taste of arabic culture plus some entertainment, great service, fun to watch entertainment,nice food, free soft drinks, amazing sunset, definitely it is a must to do it in Dubai
This is something that everyone staying in Dubai should do. From the beautiful sunset to the rising moon twinkling over all the coloured light the scene was set for a magical night.
Our guide was very helpful in making sure we were settled with chairs for my Mum and I to sit on and making sure I got extra meat when i went and collected our dinner.
Just a tip though, we found removing our shoes made it easier to walk through the sand.
The show and food was very good and well organised. Took 1.5 hours to get there with the driver filling his mini bus up on the way. Struggled with the seats.
This trip included a stop off at a dirt bike attraction which we weren't informed about beforehand and was a dirty and VERY hot wait while others on the tour took bikes out. The desert show was pretty boring and the buffet unremarkable. Our minibus driver made the trip for us by taking pictures of the sunset with us in front of it and driving us over the sand dunes in the dark on the way home.
