Brilliant day all in all could not fault a single thing from pick up, to entertainment,sand boarding, safari and the camp with bbq and dancers at the end. Ibrahim made the experience even more enjoyable, what a guy. Would highly recommend you book this trip when visiting Dubai.
Amazing experience

My partner and I had amazing time on the desert safari - our tour guide Faisal was fantastic and very accommodating. We would definitely recommend this tour.
Great short trip to the sand dunes.
Daryn M, 11-10-2022
Great short adventure to the sand dunes to have a bit of fun in a Toyota Sequoia. Najeeb Khan drove so well and was early for pickup. The camel ride was just long enough and everyone involved was friendly. The Dubai traffic was horrendous on the way back, but not much you can do about that. Najeeb did his best to navigate the fastest route. Overall great value.

This was the highlight of our Dubai holiday!! Book it! From beginning to end absolutely no issues! Lots of fun, my 13 year old said this was the best day of her life!
Superb thrill rides on the desert
kmcmillan157, 11-10-2022
Excellent trip. Abbas was a fantastic guide and superb driver. Really fast and bumpy in the dunes but felt very safe the whole time. Night time drive back in the dunes was equally thrilling! BBQ had great, plentiful food and entertainment was great too.
I’d definitely recommend this trip and this company in particular. Easy to book from the UK and communication was excellent. Told rough time at booking, given a closer time on the morning eg 2.45 to 3.30, then given a ten minute out alert. No wasted time chasing up what was happening.
Great stopover to have in Dubai
Bina_B, 10-10-2022
Abbas was my travel guide and he was so lovely. He redirected his route and accommodated me to pick me up as I had accidentally went to the wrong pickup location (I had just landed from my flight). He told me to wait and thankfully picked me up and was very understanding. He made great conversation and always checked up on me as I was a solo traveller and ensured I was ok and fed. He also gave me 2 water bottles as I had an irritated cough and throughout the journey he kept asking I was ok. I loved every part of the desert safari, camel riding was such a great experience as well as the dune bashing. I’m glad I booked this trip as my stopover to Dubai and would recommend and do this again. Thanks for the lovely experience!

Family adventure
Omar B, 20-12-2022
Ayub was excellent, very efficient, professional, kept to time, fantastic driving skills, particularly during desert safari. The program was good, the choice of the quad bike site could have been better, the site was average as well as the carts. The Bedouin camp is good, this is our second time there and it didn’t disappoint. Thanks Ayub, I will be calling you again soon.
Great family experience
Alex M, 20-12-2022
We had a great experiences Faisal our driver was wonderful. The dune bashing with sand boarding and bbq dinner are worth the full day tour.
Fantastic Desert Safari Trip
middleagedman70, 11-01-2023
Fantastic desert safari with Ibrahim today. He couldn’t do enough for us from great contact in advance, to answering any questions, always checking we were happy, offering more time and options of activities and providing drinks.

Loved it all but the highlight was the dune driving, exhilarating, great fun whilst always feeling safe with the driving. The trust must’ve showed when he convinced me to do a backward sand surf…

Fantastic trip, well organised, great fun and an amazing guide. Thanks Ibrahim.
Best tour ever. Well organized, punctual and exciting.

Excellent experience

The Dune bashing is quite an experience. The driver Najeep is great. Everything went smooth and safe.
Exceptional 5-hour (not 7-hour) safari with Taj
didier629, 12-01-2023
Enjoyed every moment!!!
Our guide, Taj, enjoyed shaking us around on the dunes. We loved it !!
However, it was not actually 7-hour of activities. It was rather 7-hours from pick up to return at the hotel. We could not, thus, try everything available (shisha, picture with falcon, tea tasting …)
Service is excellent!! 5...
Melvin_W, 11-01-2023

Androulla_C, 26-01-2023
All round great experience. Sitting on the sand dunes and having a moment to take it all in was a highlight of the day.
Alice G, 26-01-2023
Ibrahim was amazing!! I couldn’t be more impressed by this tour and this price! He was so friendly and made me feel so comfortable! I went on this trip on my own and I couldn’t be more happy I came! Ibrahim gave us loads of time and always told us not rush and took so many photos! If you come on this tour try get Ibrahim!
