It was a great experience! The only downside was the cats, they were everywhere when we were trying to eat. The staff was helpful on trying to get them away and the staff was very helpful and friendly
Great day in Dubai’s Red Dunes
scott_b, Jun 2023
First of all, our guide Fahad did a tremendous job of leading our small group in all of the activities that included ATV riding and sand surfing. The ATVs were well maintained and rode nicely. The trails and terrain were fantastic with large dunes and spectacular scenery. Oceanaire travel really has a great set up for the dining, camel rides, show and other activities. The food was exceptional for an activity like this. Authentic regional food prepared outside in a camp like atmosphere. This was a great day for us and I highly recommend it. The desert sunset was a perfect backdrop and finish to a perfect day. Try to get Fahad, he’s the best.
Chill and Fun in the desert 🤩🤩🤩
Yim_L, May 2023
We had an extremely fun-filled, exciting and enjoyable day in the desert, with a taste of everything that the desert can offer ~ ATV, camel riding, encounter with falcons, sand boarding, Shisha etc. We are continuously fed with drinks and sumptuous Arabic and Emirati delicacies which we enjoyed tremendously. Our guide, iltaf, was so helpful and attentive, he even saved me twice when my ATV was stuck in the sand (I am a lousy driver😅). Our tour mates came from different corners of the world and we had great time together, sharing stories and enjoying the fun and food. The tour was awesome and we definitely recommend this tour to everybody who comes to visit Dubai.
A must.
Asir_M, May 2023

I literally can not rate this trip more highly. From booking, right through to drop off at our hotel, it was wonderful. UMMER was our guide and he was amazing- perfect english( we are from the UK) polite, caring and funny! He was wonderful, explained everything clearly and everything was smooth. We did the ATV biking which was awesome, took photos, tried sandboarding ( so much fun) then off to Bedouin area for wonderful evening of camel rides, feeding, Arabic teas and coffees, amazing food and barbecued meats, dress up opportunity, henna tattoos and wonderful show with Shiah’s (which I’d never tried) the show was amazing. A safe trip back to our hotel with the wonderful safe driver UMMER again, just truly a perfect night. If you’re thinking about a desert trip, these guys have surpassed all expectation!! Don’t hesitate to book!!!

Excursion night in Dubai
Valerie_F, May 2023
Nice experience. Our tour guy was a little stink at first but he later lightened up. 3 of us was very slow on the bikes and I think he was getting frustrated lol. The desert was scary going up the heels, but after getting used to it, we got comfortable. Loved the free hookah and barbecue dinner… oh yes henna tattoos were great as well. Camel ride was nice as well. Very happy with the outcome.
