I had a great experience with this tour and company. I called them a day early to confirm pick up time and they picked me up right on time at my hotel. We picked up a few people along the way and then met with another bus to start the tour around 9am. First stop was at Jumeirah Beach and... More

Best experience ever. Dune driving was exciting, we wanted to do it over and over again. The camp was spectacular with a great show and dinner.

The dune bashing was fun though scary ar times. The camel farm was interesting and the camel ride was short but fun. We did not try the sand boarding. It looks to be more difficult than appears. The general entertainment was amusing although the bellydancing went on too long. The food was god but not typical Arabian. Negative points are... More

They were right on time! I was accompanied by 4 other people that were couples but they were so wonderful and we felt like a family! The dune bashing was like being on a roller coaster but on a 4x4! Great entertainment but 2 women that were also tourists were disgusting pigs. Very rude but I still had a great... More

Booking was easy, driver great and the dune bashing as expected. 2..Enjoyed the camel ride and the sand boarding was a fun experience. 3. Henna painting uses old and inferior product. 4. The BBQ dinner and the entertainment was well below... More

Do not go, it takes you to rural places and run down areas. Waste of time, tour was 2 hours late and tour guide left us in poverty area where safety was a concern. Do not go on this tour, speaking from someone who has been on many tours this was the worse one I ever been to.

The majority of the previous reviews are all spot on. This is a very touristy desert safari but we were tourists so it worked perfectly. The pick up was on time and the itinerary was exactly as described. All great fun and extremely entertaining. Have to give a massive shoutout to our driver Nawshad, a very talented driver in the...

This tour was as expected. Well organised if a little touristy following 20 other 4x4s around the dunes . Our tour guide arrived promptly . We drove for around 45 mins to get to the dunes . The drive over the dunes was fun and exhilarating. We then arrived at a camp where there were camel rides, sandboarding, quad bikes... More

If you are looking for an easy adventure, close to Dubai, it will work. That is not very authentic, just fun I guess.
