    Our driver & guide Imran was amazing. He is very knowledgeable and filled us in with lots of interesting facts of Dubai. His driving skill on the dunes is superb, what an unforgettable ride. He was accommodating to our various requests and made efforts to fulfill them with a large sense of humour. Thk u Imran.
    A special shout out to Hakeem the resident astrologer. His sharing of the universe was incredibly interesting, so cool.
    Overall, a 5 star trip into the desert 👍🏻👍🏻

    Fantastic morning dune bashing, our driver Atif provided so much interesting information on the journey. Atif really made the whole experience so enjoyable and one to remember, especially for our teen girls 13 & 15, organising lots of fun photos in the sand which they loved for instagram. Also the sand boarding was super fun and a great experience. Highly recommend this trip.

    This tour was amazing. Our tour guide, Arslan, was incredible. Very knowledgeable about the sites, very personable, and an overall good human being. I would highly recommend this excursion, especially with Arslan. My mom has mobility issues, and he was so kind and gentle with her. He was flexible about what places we went to and for how long we stayed there. We saw several sites in Abu Dhabi!

    We did the desert safari with Muhammad nouman. He was a great driver, we felt very safe, our 6 years old kid loved the experience. On top of being a great driver, muhammad was very fun and he took awesome photos of us. He took care of us from start to end. Highly recommend him. Thanks, Muhammad! You made our day!

    This was an amazing experience that was made all the better by our guide Kashif. He was communicative and gave us a great feel for this history and culture of Dubai. He had a great attitude and told hilarious stories while we drove to the different destinations.

    For the experience itself you first start out with riding on an ATV. They bring you to a riding area, give you a helmet, and then you are free to drive for your time on the tour. They also will take a picture of you that you can pay 40 AED for. Don’t worry if you forget to bring water, they offer free water, soft drinks, coffee, and tea throughout the tour.

    Next they take you dune bashing. The ride was a lot of fun and our driver Kashif knows what he is doing. They stop at the top of one of the larger dunes so you can slide down the dune in either a standing or sitting. Definitely try both. Kashif then offers to take photos of you on the Dune (and he takes great photos). After giving a us 5 minutes of free time to take photos on our own we had another dune bash to the camp.
    At the camp you get to ride and feed the camels! They are a lot bigger than I expected. You will be quite high when compared to riding on a horse. They will take some nice photos of you to sell later (starting at around 250 AED, but they come in a nice glass prism) and with your phone. After you are allowed to pet and feed the camels.
    Depending on the timing of your tour you will have an opportunity to take a photo of the sunset on another dune before entering the camp. At the camp they have everything. Modern and clean restrooms, free desserts, refreshments, henna, a live falcon, and gift shops. They give you three performances and in between serve dinner.
    The dinner is amazing. It’s a buffet of three different types of cuisines, BBQ, and dessert. The BBQ in particular is probably the best I have ever had. Of course you can eat as much as you like.
    After that they drop you off at the same location your requested pickup.
    It’s really an amazing deal. Especially when compared to the other experiences I have see on YouTube, this tour is really all inclusive.

    Really fun day out and great value for the money.
    Kamran was a very attentive tour guide and made sure we were well catered for and explained what to expect from each activity.
    The dune bashing was the highlight & got our adrenaline pumping.
    The food, drink & entertainment were equally enjoyable.
    We couldn't have asked for a better experience & would highly recommend this excursion.

    What an amazing day. From the moment we were picked until the time we were dropped back to the hotel it was so so good. Everything ran smoothly, our guide was amazing and very informative. The dune bashing was great !!
    Sliding, skidding and sand going everywhere, spectacular scenery and Mr Rashid passed on all his knowledge and history of the desert etc.
    Great photos, great food, great entertainment. Highly recommend using these guys. You won't be disappointed

    We had great trip. Especially we were happy with our driver Adnan who is for every recommendation. Very kind, professional and good with kids. If you don't have entire day this is great one to experience. In 3-4 hours you can experience camel ride, dune bashing, falcon, quad ride and sand boarding.

    We organised our trip through TripAdvisor and our guide was Javed Anwer. He was absolutely brilliant. Accommodated our requests and stayed beyond 6pm with us ensuring that we saw all the hotspots of Dubai and considering that my parents are elderly.
    Overall, was a fantastic experience which worthed every single penny.

    We had a fantastic guide who was very friendly and a great driver for the dune bashing which was huge fun. The camp and bbq exceeded all our expectations and we loved the camel rides. The overnight stay was excellent and our accommodation was extremely comfortable with very clean facilities.

    Personal service to a high standard. Enough time to everything on the itinerary without any rush or pressure.
    The camp show could improve a nudge but overall good.
    Our guide Rashid was very experienced in Dune bashing. Made us feel safe.
    Highly recommended.
