What To Expect

Your desert experience begins with pickup from your Dubai hotel, where you greet your guide and board an air-conditioned, SUV destined for the Arabian Desert.

On entering the desert, your guide deflates your tires and takes you on a rollercoaster ride as you crash through the dunes in your off-road vehicle. Then, visit an oasis and travel through a camel farm before stopping to watch a stunning sunset. Continue to a desert safari camp designed to represent a traditional Bedouin village for a camel ride, used as a means of desert transport by Arabs for centuries.   

If you’re a thrill-seeker, try your hand at sandboarding down desert dunes or opt to ride a quad bike at your own expense. Recline on soft Arabian carpets with a shisha pipe as professional artists adorn your hands and feet with henna and, once decorated, pose for photographs wearing traditional Arabian dress—please note, if you wish to purchase photographs, this is at your own expense.

Then, prepare yourself for the visual beauty of a belly dancing show, where professional dances swish and sway during a tanoura dance performance and fire show. Following the show is the feast, which includes shawarma, salads, mezze, Middle Eastern sweets, and more. Soft drinks and water are unlimited, but alcoholic beverages are at your own expense.

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Marian_S, Jan 2024
It was an excellent experience. It is a must do in Dubai. Our driver Sajid was verry experienced and he did nice tricks with the car. Dune bashinh was excellent. Our pick up driver Adnan was very polite and helpful with useful info about Dubai and things to do. Food was excellent.
Ok tour
Tamara_B, Jan 2024
Was an ok tour. The people were very nice. The food was good. The shows a bit short... Was supposed to get the option for soft track but got a bumpy dune drive though even after confirming twice.
Very professional
Very professional, family had a great time. Thanks to driver Sajid and all guys and girls from show. Fully recommended
Desert safari and Quads
Neda_B, Dec 2023
My family thoroughly enjoyed the Sand dunes drive in the desert and the quad biking. Our driver Sajid was very nice and made the experience so much fun. He was always available to help with taking photos and made sure everyone was comfortable at all times. The evening entertainment was average and the dinner was disappointing to be honest. If I was to do this again I would return after the activities and not stay for evening session.
Timelesness, kindness, new adventure
Attila_P, Nov 2023
Just briefly, the driver who took us to the desert and also the one who was the driver in the safari were awesome, talkative, they did their best, they said that they are delighted if we are, so anything we asked, they did as they could, everything was clear, flexible, the food was magnificent, I regret that I didn’t eat more, the drinks, also water, so there wasn’t even a moment when I felt that I miss something, thank you for this well organised trip, made our day, at least once you should go there with this company, best regards
Desert trip
Christine_B, Oct 2023
Interesting trip to the desert and cultural show and dinner. Good value for the price we paid. The star gazing was a waste of time- too much ambient light. Had some concerns about the environmental impact with so many single use plastics. One of the camels had a tight chain around its nose which had caused a nasty wound- not what I expected to see! Our driver who was generally ok took his hands off the wheel while driving to answer his phone and and send text messages. Not very safe.
Safari adventure
Isa_D, Oct 2023
Great desert safari. Car was not very comfortable and driver did not provide much information. Introduction was quite rushed. There was not enough time for sand boarding. Dinner was plentiful and entertainment was great.
Betsy_J, Sep 2023
Excellent tour , driver was a professional that make us feel comfortable going through the dunes (very fun) . Highly recommend.
Lots of sitting around
Debra_G, Sep 2023
The dune bashing was fun. The shows were great but we had to wait a long time between acts. They served a lot of good, plenty for vegetarians. If you don’t do the quads there is a lot of free time with nothing to do. You get there at 4:15 and the dinner/show is 7:15 - the camel ride is 10 minutes at most, same with sand boarding and the dune bashing 45 minutes at most, so you twiddle your thumbs for over an hour. Too much food wasted, big on quantity not on quality.
Wonderful night!
Beatriz_E, Jul 2023
Bally Dance was amazing. Beautiful music. Very good experience. Beautiful movements and armony. Respectfull Show
Go with professionala.. Always True.. Service is beyond imagination
Infenent_A, Jul 2023
Trust me these guys are professionals in this industry.. "Zero" error or complaints. You are in the hands of real professionals. Amazing customer service. Our group went on a brand new SUV, superb safari experience. Went to a palace like camp whwre they conduct shows and dinner.. To much food.. Camel ride. Sand boarding... Everything for a small price!!! You get chance to book the quads too. Not to much crowded guys.. They have to notch customer service and well trained staffss who offer you a memorable experience.
Perfect tour by a perfect tour operator
Jomon_C, Jul 2023
My second time and extremely happy with all service by ABC Tours. Great customer service. The highlight was 4*4 dune safari ride with ABC Tours Dubai by our guide Rosh. Camel ride was extremely fun. The best thing what impressed me was the customer service offered by the staffs especially Reena who managed everything well. All the guests were given enough water to keep hydrated throughout the evening. Sand boarding could be done as many times you want and they really care about your safety. Camp was very beautiful and the ambience was great. I did upgrade to the VIP service and it is well worth it and highly recommended. BBQ dinner was delicious and plentiful. Here you have a chance to upgrade your tour to add the ATV options as well. Highly recommended

Allan_H, Jun 2023
Vehicle broke down on the way to desert. Company went to some trouble to recover the situation and make sure we had a good afternoon/evening. Highlight was driving around the dunes.
Not that good
Igne_A, May 2023
The driver was polite. The Safari itself very disorganized. We had to wait for our dune bashing, because there were not enough cars. Then we were late for other activities, we literally had to run from one to other activity. :D Food was very bad, barely eatable. The show was okay, nothing special. We wouldn’t repeat it.
Great Experience, one I will never forget
NICOLAV_F, May 2023
Great experience, never to be forgotten. The Desert, the Camel ride and the Dune Bashing was soo much fun. Loved it, it’s amust do in Dubai, Great company.
Excellent value for money
Becky_d, May 2023
Amazing from start to finish well organised and staff very helpful, camel ride could have been longer. Plenty of food and drink, excellent value for money.
Not Wheelchair Friendly - falsely advertised
Matt_O, Apr 2023
The tour operator needs to remove that this is wheelchair friendly because it is not. I am in a wheelchair and did the tour but could not participate in the activities. I was able to do the dune bashing but that's because I have some minor strength in my right leg to stand up while crossing over the raised gate. There is no safe access to the stage area where food is served and the extra cost of $15USD for free flowing softdrinks does not exist. If you are able bodied, this would be a great tour but it is falsely advertising the wheelchair accessibility. I could not even use the toilets as the paths to the toilets are undulated at different heights. As a result of the poor access, I fell out of my wheelchair after the final dance performance. The staff were good to help me. Please remove the wheelchair friendly from this tour as a safety issue.
Dinner spread was very tasty and lot of choices
Umangi_J, Apr 2023
The driver was very skillful and friendly. He ensured that the ride is comfortable and enjoyable too
