I had a long layover at Dubai Airport so I thought of booking a day tour and called Viator, the representative was very helpful, found a last min tour and made arrangements for pickup/dropoff. It was definitely worth it, super glad I picked this tour. The tour was very organized, clean camp, fun desert safari, good food (options of vegetarians as well), our guide was very informative, and kept us engaged from the beginning til end of the tour.
Excellent, good value for money! Mohammed our driver, picked us up from our hotel and after a pit stop to refuel (great joy to my husband as there were numerous fast cars also at the petrol station) we then drove out to the desert and began the dune bashing - great fun, we stopped twice for 10 mins for photos and to purchase Arabic head scarves for those that wanted them. After the dune bashing we arrived at the ‘camp’ for the evening where we did a short camel ride and dune buggies - this is a free extra so not up over the dunes but round a track still fun but if that is the main thing for you bear that in mind. The evening consisted of food and entertainment, water and tea/coffee are provided and you can purchase alcohol if you want. The entertainment is traditional spinning dance, fire show and a belly dancer. We had a wonderful day/evening our driver was brilliant, I would totally recommend this trip.
This trip was well organised. We were picked on time from our hotel and our driver cum guide Mohammed was very friendly and helpful. We went straight to the dune bashing (about an hour away) followed by the ATV drive (which is basically 15 min going round and round in circles). We opted for the extra 30 min ATV drive in the desert for which we had to pay separately. This was followed by a 3 min camel ride (again mainly for photographs). Then dinner and entertainment started. The entertainment was nice (basically belly dancers and some other local dancing).
The food was reasonable, but I guess they were trying to cater to a wide range of nationalities and tastes and they seemed to have something for everyone. During the entertainment you also had a chance to take pictures with a falcon.
The drive back also took around 45 min.
Overall a nice trip with a nice guide cum driver. I would recommend if you are in dubai and want to experience the desert for the first time.
There was no sandboarding which I believe is only for the morning tours.
It was an amazing deal for a great excursion into the Dubai desert. So many activities included for the price, you just can’t beat it.
The tour was a great experience.
John, our driver, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us a lot of information about the city and its culture. Camel ride and ATV ride were amazing.
Experience was very positive. We were running slightly late due to Dubai traffic and tour provider was very responsive and waited an extra 10 minutes to meet them.
We booked this trip and after hearing so many people moan about how certain things weren’t included we behalf to worry. However they thankfully were proven wrong. Quads, camel ride and henna we’re all included. The bbq was lovely. The setting was breathtaking and the dunes were awesome. Our driver picked us up from the hotel and he was brilliant and dropped us off when the evening was over. Would highly recommend this trip.
We loved the experience!! Good value for our money!! Our driver who referred to himself as “Chocolate Kahn” was a real cool dude!! He was attentive and has cool pictures taking skills!!
The safari driver was rude and he avoided the dunas trip, he took us for a plain desert 🐫 road , the rest of the passengers are from India so he was speaking Hindu with them, one of the lady was so noisy and didn’t stop talking
Very poor. This is my second time (different company) doing a desert safari and was very disappointed. I specifically chose this trip because it didn't have sand bashing-which I already did and was not pleased. The attraction did include the sand bashing but my driver was kind enough to leave me at camp. ATV was another HUGE disappointment. The ride is in a circle around a small track for 10 minutes; it was a joke as were the camel rides. We were left at camp to sit and wait 2 hours in the heat for food and entertainment. Trip stated that soda/drinks were included but we were only offered small water while we waited for the camp to setup and begin their extravaganza (?) There was a group who was served various beverages before and I was informed they were "VIP" who also had their food served instead of waiting on a long line for a buffet.. Dinner was ok, 2*, dessert was horrible. We couldn't wait for the trip to end and was tempted to call a cab but we were clueless of our location in the desert. I'm a travel agent, trust me book elsewhere.
Venture into the desert and enjoy a complimentary quad bike ride at the desert camp, barbecue dinner and traditional Emirati entertainment on this 5 to 6 hour 4x4 safari from Dubai. As the sun starts to set, scale the dunes on your 4x4 and arrive at a Bedouin-style camp for shisha, Arabic coffee and dates. Then, take an exciting complimentary quad ride, watch henna artists at work, enjoy a camel ride, and admire impressive sand art. Finish with a barbecue dinner under the stars as you watch belly dancers and a ‘tanoura’ dance, with whirling dervish dancers spinning before you.
