One of the best Desert safari experience. I had been to various Desert Safari previously. But, this was by far the best one with good and friendly staff. Our Driver Moosa was especially commendable. Would definitely recommend this company

Perfect 👌
Kemi_F, Feb 2024
All the activities were worth it. Excellent Gudes. Abdul was such a great person who went beyond the call of duty to ensure that my children and I thoroughly enjoyed our day out. Very good English too.
Overall, it was a good experience.
LaChrislyn_G, Feb 2024
Overall the experience was good. I would suggest bringing warm clothes or a blank for the camp. It will be stated that blankets are included but there were only like 10 blankets total with beyond 10 guest there. The food was good, so that’s a plus.
Best tour ever
rahele_m, Feb 2024
The best tour ever!!!! Our tour guide Vacar was the best. Sand bashing Sand surfing camel ride. Holding Falcon up close , entertainments and food were super . I wish I had time to do it again!
Ashley_G, Jan 2024
Nice ATV activity pick up was prompt and on time, they communicate with you the night before to let you know what time they will be at your pick up location. It’s about a 45 minute drive from the city of Dubai to the location where you will ride the ATVs, we had a fair amount of time to ride the ATVs, and they also gave us a opportunity to upgrade to a buggy if you wanted to. There was also an opportunity to take pictures with a falcon, and to buy things out of their shop, such as head, scarves, souvenirs, etc. , I did not do the dune, bashing and sand surfing part of the activities due to motion sickness, so I cannot comment on that portion.
Nice Afternoon out on the Sand Dune
Punsa_R, Jan 2024
Well organized activity: pickup, drive, camel ride, dune bashing, sand boarding and photo ops along the way. Communication very professional and friendly. Would recommend the operator and the guide (his name is Khan). The car (Toyota Land Cruiser) was clean and well maintained.
The best safari

We travelled with our 4 young kids and had an absolutely brilliant experience. The kids got to try all the great things and didn’t lose interest. Our guide was Nomi and he was absolutely wonderful. Kind, knowledgeable and the kids absolutely loved him. Thanks for a wonderful family experience!!!

Muhammad_S, Dec 2023
Our drivers/guides were Mr Khan and Jasem - for 8 adults and 3 kids. Both Mr Khan and Jasem were great guides who ensured that our desert tour went smoothly. They drove skillfully and provided us with useful tips and advice throughout the tour. For the dune bashing, they both ensured that we were all comfortable and feeling fine. Oh yes, would like to commend Mr Khan for taking such beautiful photos of us against the sunset! [Just for sharing, for everyone's knowledge - while we took the all-inclusive package with quad bike, there was an additional AED400 charge to change to a 4-person buggy (in place of the quad bike) as my parents were not keen for the quad bike.]
Value for money
Thomas_B, Dec 2023
Jaseem from Ocean Air was our guide for the day. He provided great service all the way, from pick-up until dropping us off in the evening! We had approximately 30mins quad biking, and 30mins sandboarding. The dune bashing was fun, but not challenging for the passengers, just bumpy. Interaction with the camels was really nice, you get to feed the young camels as much as you want to. Great for animal loving children (the few who are still not entirely addicted to an iPad). The bufeet was superb!
First time, great opportunity

We booked 4 days before the trip, and there were plenty of options for timings, we went at 2.30pm. We were picked up later than 2.30, but timings were confirmed on the morning of our trip, and those timings were met. It was a 45 minute car journey to the desert, busy with lots of other tour operators - our guide Rav was very friendly. Camel riding was first and part of the package but we did not take part and waited for 10 minutes taking photos of the scenery. it was then dune bashing, which as great fun, however I would say a little tame compared to me expectations. This lasted 15-20 minutes We then went sandboarding, you could either sit down or stand up, there was opportunity for panoramic photography too which Ravi took of us. We then went back to the entrance and went quad biking, you have to pay extra to be take out onto the dunes, which we did. There will be lots of people at the entrance stopping you as if to help but then charge you for it - for example a photographer and a head scarf for the dunes. It was a great experience, about 3.5 hours and would love to do it again
Fantastic Fun Dune-Bashing & BBQ Buffet
C_T, Dec 2023
We had a Blast Dune-Bashing!! The entire ocean Tours experience exceeded our expectations. Arafa, our driver & Tour guide provided the perfect balance of information, oversight and independence to our group of 7. We never felt pressured to participate or purchase things and was quick to recommend the “must try” items in the Fantastic Buffet. The shows were very entertaining and unique. I highly recommend this tour to all visitors and hope your guide is as good as Arafa.
Good tour manager
Faris_T, Nov 2023
Our tour manager Nadeem was friendly and accommodating when we requested him to drop us off at the Dubai mall instead of our hotel
Great tour
Priti_V, Nov 2023
The scooter ride and the jeep ride in the dunes was the best The guide was great. Perfect timing The experience of camel ride was great too. The slide in dunes was ok and difficult to climb back
Great experience
