Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Dubai, Dubai, Emirate of Dubai

Choose from 4-hour program that includes dune bashing, sandboarding and camel ride or the full 7-hour program with the addition of a BBQ dinner and enjoy many other activities at a VIP Bedouin-style camp'.

Start your experience with pickup in a safari-style 4WD vehicle from your central Dubai hotel and zoom into the remote Lahbab desert that lies outside the city.

During the drive, your guide answers any questions and shares information about the region. Head off road into bright red dunes and have your camera ready to capture what looks like giant beanbags of sand. During a break to gather the convoy, make use of optional quad bikes on-site. Then hold tight as you cruise toward the highest slopes. Feel the adrenaline race as your 4x4 plows up the dunes before sliding and slipping back down the slopes, churning up billowing clouds of sand in the process.

Reach a high desert dune for a photo stop and admire 360-degree views of the desert landscape as the sun slowly sets (afternoon tour). Take a camel ride and surf the dunes on a sandboard before you continue on to a Bedouin-style camp hidden in the middle of the desert (if 7-hour option selected).

The 4-hour tour ends here and you are returned to your Dubai hotel.

For those who have chosen a 7-hour tour, proceed to a torchlit camp, settle inside a cushion-strewn tent, and savor some fresh Arabian coffee and dates. Your safari guide will brief you about the various activities available: smoke a shisha (water pipe), decorate your hands with henna designs, and take pictures in traditional Arabic clothes.

As dusk falls, dig into a scrumptious barbecue dinner of dishes such as kebabs, hummus, and salads accompanied by sodas and mineral water, and additional drinks (own expense) from the bar. While you eat, enjoy a colorful belly dancing show and tanoura performance, where fast-spinning dancers whirl across the stage. If you wish, click snaps with Arabian falcons at the camp.

Finally, return to Dubai by 4x4, where your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.

The Safari was fantastic! The guides (particularly my guide, Sanjip?) really cared about making sure everyone enjoyed themselves. The guides pointed out sights to see along the way to the camp, where we then rode camels and could ride quad bikes (the quad bikes were an extra cost) or go to the toilet or grab a snack whilst they let the air out of the tyres for the dune safari. The guides made sure that we all felt comfortable during the safari, including warning us that it might make some people feel car sick and providing us with sick bags just in case (although no one in my car felt sick). The ride was exhilarating! It got your heart beating and you were jumping around but it was not too scary! The guides stopped every now and then to check everyone was okay and not scared. Once we all chimed that we were all good, the music would start again and off we'd go! After the safari we stopped to take photos and go sandboarding. The guides again were really attentive and took the time to take lots of photos and videos of everyone and ensuring that everyone got to try Sandboarding at least twice. Highly recommend!

This was an awesome experience. Loved the camel ride and sandblasting. Major was an exceptional tour operator. He provided 100% customer service. He was superb in the drive in the desert. He took pictures when my friends stayed inside the vehicle. Loved the tour. He allowed me to use his googles to keep the sand from my eyes. I wear contacts.

Amazing day out, friendly tour guide be prepared to wait once you’ve been picked up you go to a camp where you can hire bikes to go off, you wait for all the car to go in the desert

This was my first solo trip to Dubai so I thought I would book an excursion to give me something to do and an opportunity to interact with people.
My guide was very communicative and picked me up from my hotel on time.
He gave us a mini tour as we headed out of the city to the desert.
I booked the half day safari and did camel riding as well as the dune safari. There was the option to do quad biking too.
Refreshments were aplenty. Endless bottles of cold water which was welcomed.
The group was a lovely mix of people and we had a really nice day.
I would and have highly recommended this day out even if you just did a half day like me. The 4/5 hours was enough as it is so hot it can be exhausting. I had a fab day! Thank you to the tour operators

Our driver for the experience was called Siyyad and he was fantastic. We took our tour on Tuesday 4th September and we got picked up from our hotel with no issues and collected another group on our way to the dunes. Siyyad was super friendly and informative about the day and what we would experience. I was feeling a bit nervous as I can experience motion sickness, he made sure I was ok throughout the dune safari and made me feel much better. We enjoyed the desert entertainment and the food on the BBQ was very nice. I would certainly recommend the tour, great way to escape the city and see some traditional stuff. Thanks again to Siyyad

The half day safari (9am-1pm) was just right in terms of having the opportunity to experience the desert without having to include a meal which is offered on some other tours. Our guide picked us up promptly and we enjoyed the short camel ride and paid extra to drive quad bikes. The dune bashing was fun and we got some good photos to remind us of our experience.

Our guide was Rashid who was great with communication on WhatsApp, very kind, picked us up on time and was a GREAT driver diving through the sand dunes. If we ever have an opportunity then we would book this excursion again.

Great tour, professional and efficient pick-up, with great communication before tour regarding pick up.

Comfortable car; with lots of cold water and juice! Siddique was a wonderful tour guide- very knowledgeable and a great driver, he was attentive and helpful. Professional throughout but still made for a very fun day, that we will never forget! Thank you!
