“amazing trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

The drivers are perfect. It was magic - the golden sands, the camel ride in the middle of the desert with great show and good barbeque dinner.

“Must be done”

Personally I don't think Dubai is an interesting destination therefore a trip to the Desert is a must to admire one of nature's wonders.

“sand bashing is cool!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

sorry i don';t know what this "conservation reserve" is but i went to the desert safari trip, which wasn't listed here. the trip started at 3.30pm and ended at 9pm. i had a 4x4 driving crazy on the desert plus belly dance performance and riding a camel in a tourism village in the middle of the desert. like my friend said: this is a most valuable 50 dollars i ever spent!
