This was an amazing evening. Orient tours knows how to treat their guest! They picked us up right outside hotel near Dubai airport which was perfect! Our guide and the team for the evening was so much fun and made sure we had plenty of time to enjoy everything. The dune bashing was a blast - yup, I did scream a few times whipping around in the sand. We visited a camel farm and leaned about the one vs two humps, learned about the national bird of the UAE even though they are not native, rode a camel (not long enough), sand boarded, received a henna tattoo, the shows were very entertaining – the belly dancer was stunning – Disney and Busch Gardens has nothing compared to this and the dinner was fabulous.
If we ever have a chance to return to Dubai, this will be the first thing we schedule it was so much fun!
Very enjoyable experience, well looked after, and very engaging staff.
An experience my husband and I will always remember 😁
A great company, please use.
The tour gave us a brief insight into Dubai culture and scenery. As well, we had the thrill of the Dune bashing, falcon mastery, camel riding and live entertainment during dinner which was a great buffet. The tour ran smoothly and we were looked after all the way.
This turned out to be our highlight of our trip to Dubai and I would HIGHLY recommend it to everyone. Our driver picked us up as scheduled and clearly explained all of the activities for the day. Once we got to the desert and began the dune bashing at no time did we question our safety. It was such a fun and amazing experience. We were able to visit a camel farm and view a falconry demonstration on the way to the village. Once there we were able to take a camel ride and try sandboarding, as well as Shisha and Mendhi before being fed a wonderful dinner all while being entertained by dancers and a fire dancer/breather. At the end of the evening our driver dropped us off right back at our hotel.
This was an awesome and fun tour! The sand dune 4x4 ride was so much fun along with the camel farm and falcon show! The camp site for the entertainment was very impressive! Along with the camel ride and food. I have already referred this to a friend planning a trip to Dubai
Excellent tour, would recommend this to my family and friends. Superb food and evening entertainment.
A trully unforgettable trip would recommend this to people who are out for adventure and an out of the ordinary thrill.
The experience was amazing. We took the afternoon tour. Which was great since we get got to ride the camels at sunset. (Beautiful pictures) The driver picked us up at the hotel in a jeep. There was another couple in our Jeep as well. We drove for approximately 1 hour. He took us to a location in the desert for pictures. Then we did the dune surfing. It was an adrenaline rush. Then we went to the camel farm and falcon show. Next we went to the camp. The camp was in the middle of the desert. They had Cabañas with seating (beautiful) they had a few performances and food. We also got to ride the camels and sand boarding. At the camp we got hena tattoos and got to take pictures with a falcon. Only thing we purchase was a flash drive with photographs taken by the employees. Only reason why I gave them a 4 star and not 5 is because our driver was silent the entire time. We would ask him questions about Dubai or the desert and he gave short answers. I would of like to have more information and history, specially since my children were on the trip. Other than this, it was amazing.
Fantastic tour, my only negative thing about it was that our group was dying of thirst. We originally were taking water along but was told there was plenty of refreshments. Which there is .... at the end
So you do all activities in the heat and then u can have a drink
Other cars handed out water at each stop
Our driver was too interested in having a cigarette and getting himself a drink
Just take a bottle of water and you will be fine
Dune bashing was very good, rest all was ok food could have been much better.
camp experience was below par
