Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating to our group. Apart from sand boarding that was hard for us, everything else was excellent and we had a lot of fun
Great experience on the safari
Jessica_P, Jun 2023
We had an amazing time on the desert safari. Our guide, Maly, picked us up from our hotel and made sure we were all comfortable and hydrated throughout the experience. We had so much fun quad biking, interacting with camels, sand bashing through the dunes and sandboarding. Very hot but we were offered air conditioning and refreshments often. Thank you Maly!
Great Experience!

Exciting sand surfing and beautiful sunset watching from the camel ride
HonYee_C, May 2023
The beginning of the trip felt a bit slow as not everyone participated in the quad bike. Those not doing the bike had to wait for almost an hour for others to finish. Afterwards the trip got better with the sand surfing and camel riding. Ask the tour guide to save camel riding to the very end to avoid the heat and so that you can watch the sunset on the camel. It is very beautiful.

Quad bikes experience was very good and the Carmel ride. Sand surfing sand was too hot for me. But great to see others enjoying.
Good experience
Juavanna_J, May 2023
The activities were a fun experience. The quads were the best. We were able to ride for just the right amount of time before overheating, held and took photos with a falcon, had refreshing drinks, purchased customized jewelry, rode a camel once, and sand boarded. The camel ride was short but sweet due to the heat in the day time. The ride on the red dunes was wild but fun until our guide, Shams, stopped the vehicle to scold me for holding on to the safety handle in his car while telling me I was going to break it (even though we were literally coming out of our seats with seat belts on from the ride). We thought he was joking until he stopped driving and asked me did I want to get in the back seat like a child. Sand boarding was a hot, excruciating feat in the day time. We could only do it once and the sand was hot enough to burn your feet through your shoes. Book the evening tour! Your time will be so much better. Overall, it was a fun, memorable experience.
Well worth it

An Unforgettable Desert Adventure with Outstanding Service
William_W, May 2023
Our day in the desert tour was nothing short of extraordinary! From exhilarating ATV rides on the majestic dunes to the thrill of sandboarding, camel riding, and cruising over the breathtaking landscapes, every moment was filled with excitement and wonder. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough! One of the aspects that set this experience apart was the option to don the local attire. At an additional cost, we were able to truly immerse ourselves in the culture and feel like a part of the desert environment. It added an authentic touch to the whole experience, and we cherished the opportunity to embrace the local traditions. Moreover, the tour company's thoughtful inclusion of gift shops was a delightful surprise. We were able to browse and purchase a variety of fragrances, oils, name plates, and more, ensuring we could bring a piece of this enchanting journey back home with us. It was a wonderful way to support local artisans and cherish the memories of our adventure. Our tour guide, Tahseen, was an absolute gem. His knowledge of Dubai and the desert was unparalleled, and his passion for the region was contagious. Tahseen went above and beyond to ensure that we had an exceptional experience, answering all of our questions and sharing fascinating insights along the way. His expertise truly enriched our journey, and we felt privileged to have him as our guide. The entire team involved in organizing this tour deserves commendation. From the seamless booking process to the warm welcome we received upon arrival, every detail was handled with professionalism and care. The equipment provided for the various activities was of top-notch quality, ensuring our safety and enjoyment throughout the day. Finally, we cannot emphasize enough the sheer joy we experienced during the ATV rides and dune excursions. The adrenaline rush as we conquered the dunes was unparalleled, and the stunning vistas that unfolded before us were truly awe-inspiring. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will forever be etched in our memories. If you're seeking an unforgettable adventure in Dubai's desert, this tour is an absolute must. With its array of thrilling activities, local cultural experiences, and exceptional service, it surpassed all our expectations. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the entire team, especially our guide Tahseen, for creating such a magical and unforgettable day in the desert.
