    So I mistakenly booked a night safari when we had a evening flight on the same day, and Hassan was kind enough to try and arrange a different safari adventure for me and my husband. It was a little bit more money but it ended up being a private trip for the two of us for most of the time. I wish we could've done the night safari though - I'm sure it would've been even more great!

    This tour was an amazing experience. The tour guide picked us up at our hotel and that's who we stayed with the whole time, i noticed others switched guides, cars etc. He was very professional and showed and explained different sites around Dubai as we traveled. The desert, 4WD and BBQ dinner was an experience we will never forget. Cannot recommend this tour and the company highly enough.

    This tour is well worth it. An extended day with a drive out to the dessert, with stop over for optional activities. The dune bashing was the absolute highlight. Our driver, Arman was a phenomenal driver and handled the driving like an absolute pro. He was professional and courteous and our satisfaction was paramount to him. The Bedouin camp was great fun with a delicious BBQ dinner. All activities are included in the price here, with options to purchase upgrades, eg. a more detailed henna tattoo. We travelled in a convoy of two. Sohail Ehmad, the other driver was also very engaging with a great eye for photography on top of the dunes.

    I LOVED THIS TOUR!!!! Everything that I wanted to do in Dubai packaged in one tour!! It was my first camel ride and my first Moroccan BBQ under the stars. I couldn't have asked for a better day. I was able to smoke sheesha with my new friends and enjoy the belly dancer. I only wish that it could have lasted longer than 6 hours. The most exciting part of the tour was racing one the dunes with out driver Ahmed. I felt like I was on a roller coaster and it was so exhilarating. I'm still in awe of how Ahmed was able to navigate the track like an expert. I can't say enough good things about Ahmed. He was such an expert driver and tour guide. At one point my cousin thought she lost her phone and Ahmed went to the car and retrieved it for her. He was really accessible for anything that we needed and he constantly checked on us to make sure we were having a good time. He is awesome and this tour was one of the best that we have been on. I would definitely do this tour again and request Ahmed. Thank you

    What a fun event! It was the highlight of my week in Dubai. Is it a bit touristy? Yes, but still worth the time and money. We were picked up at our hotel, then headed to the desert. Took about 50 minutes to reach the first staging area. It was a place for the driver to deflate tires in preparation for the dune riding. We had time for a quick bio break, and were advised by the driver not to buy things there, as they were overpriced. There was the option for riding ATVs, but we didn't. Lots of families and couples playing on swings, enjoying the environment. Jumped back into SUV, drove about 10 min to the next point to prepare for duning. Waited on a couple of other SUVs in order to convoy in the dunes. Lots of fun, somewhat scary, and if you get car sick, be prepared! You may want to take something before hand. Stopped for aobu 30-45 minutes to watch the sunset. There was also the opportunity to sand board, which only a couple of people did. Jumped back into SUV and drove to the camp. Lots of other tour groups were already there, this is NOT a private dinner experience. Having said that, is was very organized and lines went quickly. Food was good, started with falafel and pita as appetizer, then buffet line opened up. Watched a belly dancer, got henna tatttos, bought a beer alcohol not included, road a camel short distance: think pony ride at the State Fair..., then the piece de resistance...the tourana dancers. Wow! Worth the money just to watch him. Back at our hotel by 9pm-ish. Our driver, Ali, told us a little about his life in Pakistan and shared he lived a tribal life, migrating around the country. Highly recommended excursion!

    The four wheel ride was awesome. Its thrilling and fun. Our tour was well organized we have given a time and 5 minutes before that the driver was in our hotel lobby. We enjoyed the sand boarding and enjoyed the sunset .Our guide was very helpful once we reach the campsite. He was guiding us and made us felt we were not new in the place. The dinner and the BBQ was good, there, theres a queue and we have to wait a bit to get our. We have so much fun with camel riding and the belly dance and tanura dance was very good. I will recommend this tour to everybody visiting dubai.

    the 4 x 4 sand dune bashing was excellent and lots of fun, we felt very safe.we would have given the quad bikes a big miss, we spent 40 minutes here and none of our group were interested in purchasing this, but there was no alternative but to sit around and wait. There was a lot of driving to our next spot for the BBQ dinner - the food was very good and entertainment good. Overall the best bit was the sand dune drive and pictures of the sunset.

    I would highly recommend this desert safari to anyone visiting or living in Dubai. It is great value for money, offering a truly memorable experience. The dune bashing / desert safari portion of the trip is a particular highlight - honestly a complete thrill thanks to the expert driving skills of our guide Shareef. The BBQ dinner is very tasty, however this part of the experience is a little too rushed and feels a bit like you are being urgently ushered through a production line. Overall a really wonderful experience that we will definitely do again!

    My wife and I were very happy to have booked this tour. Our guide Noor was friendly and tried to cater for our needs. Unfortunately, we had to share it with other people, one of whom complained continuously. I think our guide was relieved to have dropped them back at their hotel, as he became very talkative and relaxed.It would have been beneficial if we were told the quad bikes were not included and only accepted cash. Had we known we would have allowed for it.I would thoroughly recommend this tour. The 4x4 in the desert, the BBQ dinner and show was amazing.This is a must do tour.

    The only negative thought is that far too much time was spent on dune bashing. 10 minutes of that would have sufficed and the rest good have provided a sense of the beauty of the desert. However, it was a thotoughly enjoyable afternoon and evening - an experience of a very different culture with some wonderful food, color and entertainment

    Some aspects of this trip were really fun - the dune bashing is a unique experience, and we enjoyed the belly dancing. However, there was a certain amount of pointless waiting around we had a stop for about 45 minutes to try motorcycles on the dunes at an extra charge, but no one from our group wanted to so we just sat and waited for awhile. Our driver had some mechanical trouble after the dune bashing so we ended up around for that as well and then were really rushed through the dinner and didn't have much time to try the stuff there - that was just a fluke and our bad luck - BUT the really off-putting aspects of this trip were that the driver drove like a maniac on speed we were all in fear of our lives!!, and he kept ordering us around. Also, towards the end of the trip he tried to give one young woman with us a massage, which was just wildly inappropriate and awkward. Would not recommend this company, at least not for women travelling alone.

    Driver was grumpy and drove out to the desert on the highway like a rally driver, in and out of traffic, in the wrong lanes and even on the side of the motorway where is there is no lane, all at around 120km/hr. Once we got there it was a good experience to get out in to the desert. The desert part was fun and driver gave us a good ride in the desert. No snowboard option at all for us. The evening meal was good and lines went quickly. Belly dancers were ok but the star was the guy that did the fire dance, he was outstanding. Overall an ok tour but would have been better if the tour guide wasn't grumpy and actually talked and explained some things.

    I enjoyed this experience I also felt it was lacking in some areas. The barbeque was disappointing. Many of us felt confused about what portion of the food served was considered the main meal. There was not much direction or information as to when dinner would be served. There needed to have been a much better presentation for the food. They ran out of cups for the tea and coffee.You will be in the desert at night so bring a jacket!The description of the tour needs to explain that the sand surfing will be inside an off-roading SUV. The persons in charge of the camel rides need to make sure there is someone available the entire time so that customers do not need to wait for the operator to come back from break.Overall, I enjoyed the experience. Much of my feedback is in reference to customer service.

    We were picked up at 4:30 1 - 1 1/2 hours lateThe tour guide did not talk until we got out of the truck in the dessert. of course he did not apologize for the delay.the A/C was not working in the back of the truck, what made the trip uncomfortable.By the time we got to the camp we had 5 min to take pictures in the dunes because it got dark! and of course there was no more sand boarding... the pics with the camels I took with my phone were so dark that i had to purchase them from this people 50 each.and there was no more shishas available.The food and the show were good.IF WE WERE PICKED UP ON TIME THIS WOULD BE A GREAT EXPERIENCE.

    while desert safari was enjoyable and we could see beautiful sunset in the desert, the guide was not friendly at all, and he just drove a car and spoke only a little English he might have just been a driver, but the tour description indicated that there will be a professional English speaking guide.

    We were picked up by a young man in tee shirt with no sign or identification visible. He provided no guide services and drove over 60 miles per hour while talking on his cell phone almost the entire trip both ways. He dropped us and the other safari participants at a stop and said he would return to take us to the dinner in one hour. He did not return after two hours, we sent him a text message, reminding him that two hours had past and inquired as to when he would return and take us to the dinner. He did not respond and two hours later he returned finally returned to pick us up and took us to the dinner. We were late and did not get there to see the desert sunset. The guide/driver provided no comments on any sites or any conversations to passengers. We were in fear of his dangerous driving both ways while talking on his cell phone the entire trip.

    Dune bashing was good, however we were crammed in a 4wd and 1 lady got injured. At camp the driver said the drinks were free and ultd except for Alcohol. I went to get 2 cokes only to be told l could not have any until dinner time. The food was cold BBQ and poor quality. It felt like a prison camp.
