Dubai Red Dunes
Darijo_B, Feb 2024
Nice program but is too much in one package, especially if you choose afternoon trip. You can enjoy ATV then is no time to reach the camp day time for Camel ride. Program in camp was fantastic as well as food and hospitality. Recommend
Lenette_M, Feb 2024
The was an amazing excursion. Abdul was a really really great guide. I've done ATVs in the past but nothing like this and it was SO much fun. The food at the Al Khayma Camp was so good. This was a really great birthday trip.
Dubai Desert Safari

William our guide
Simon_S, Feb 2024
Activities amazing, but our guide for the day William was outstanding😃 From the time picked up to drop off he made the whole trip, particularly the journey times go so fast with his humour & experience as well as knowledge and info re everything! He really made our day involving everyone of us . Trip wouldn’t have been as great without William. Thank you xx
Fabulous and well worth it!
Keri_s, Feb 2024
This was incredible experience! I highly recommended it. It exceeded my expectations. The people were incredibly friendly and happy that we were there. The communication before the trip was wonderful. The ride was about one hour from our hotel at the Palm. After the ATV, we drove to the camp. Or brought us closer to the hotel. The camp was simply charming. I loved all the different parts and the food was delicious. This was a very good value for the money. From pick up to drop off was 7 hours. My only suggestion would be for the driver to have had the people in our car introduce ourselves and perhaps point out some places on the drive. You stay with your group (of 6) the whole time. So by the end we were friendly. It would have been better to start that earlier.
5 star must do tour
Elizabeth_G, Feb 2024
A MUST DO tour, especially if you are fortunate enough to have Salman as your tour. We were a large group with diverse interest and a crying child and Salman was not only extremely gracious but what a wonderful personality. He ensured we each had time for each activity, took fabulous pictures & shared his knowledge of the sights as we went along. The show & dinner were superb. More so the service team was first class. Truly a 5 star experience.
I would definitely do it again
Elisa_K, Feb 2024
I went with my mother in law and she is 73years old and recently she became widow. We had a such memorable fun and she was very excited and happy to do and follow all the activities! It was very safe and fun. Plus, Erickson was our guide and he is so special and entertaining, we could see his psssion for his work and live for Dubai.
Great day

Appreciate our guide and being picked up. The camp was beautiful and so well maintained. Food was excellent and liked the opportunity to try the hookah and henna. My only suggestion is more blankets especially for the cool months. Loved the tour and it was totally worth the money
Overall good experience

Zainab_P, Feb 2024
If you’re considering booking this package, don’t think twice, you will not regret it!! Our Dubai desert experience was beyond amazing and was the best value for our money! The red dunes ATV, sandsurfing, camel ride, and 5-star BBQ at Al Khayma Camp were all top-notch and went beyond our expectations. Amr Sharaf, our guide, was fantastic – super knowledgeable and friendly and very personable and great pleasure to be around. He made our trip truly memorable. Definitely recommend for a great time in the desert! 🐪 🌵
