  • This was an outstanding trip! Our best while we were in Dubai! Picked up at our hotel on time and driven out to the desert where we had an expert driver take us up and down the sand dunes at high speed. Very exciting and lots of fun! Do not try this at home! Then we were taken to the Bedouin camp,where we were able to ride camels, watch a fire dance, and a belly dance, there was a guy w8th a falcon, quad bikes you could ride, sheesha pipes for those that wanted to try that, and then topped off by an awesome barbecue! Throughout this experience our guide took excellent care of us.. finally at the end of the evening we were taken back to our hotel exhausted.. I would highly recommend this trip. I wish I remembered our guides name, he was from Peshawar originally and was wonderful and full of information all night. Me and my tours did a great job on this excursion,

  • The whole experience was amazing. This was my first time so the hopes were high as well. Glad that it exceeded my expectations. Our guide and driver, Farhan Khan was generous, helpful and had great driving skills. The belly dance, tanura and fire shows were awsome. Buffet was avg but well managed.

  • Disappointed!!! The driver was 35min late turn up without an apology. He didn't even make any conversation with other passengers. He only spoke in Hindu with the Indian passengers. The vehicle was very smelly. Lack of information when we stopped for a break he just got out the vehicle and said 5min.

  • Very nice experience. We liked it a lot. Driver picked us up and dropped us off at hotel on time, he was also very friendly. Dune bashing was adventureous like we expected. Food in camp was also perfect. I recommend this tour to anyone going to Dubai.

  • What an experience! Loved this tour, a unique experience in the desert. Food and dinner show could have been better, camel ride and Henna tattoo were, to me, the highlights. Would do it again but would try a different company to see what they got to offer.

  • Exceeded my expectations. Our driver was amazing, I would totally do it again. Do not eat or drink before off roading though, it may upset your stomach!

  • content of the tour itself was good, but our driver turned up over an hr late and there was no sand boarding. In addition, they try and charge extra for upgrades etc, like table service at the BBQ, which seems good when there's 300 people scrambling for food and different types of camel to ride on.

  • driver was good, had a great time
    but most of the things written here are with terms and conditions apply.
    shisha was not included. they were asking extra money for it and even the sand board.
    you had to pay extra for juices and even water
    camel ride was not a ride, its basically you just sit on it and feel and just two steps further and they say its done.
    basically it was not worth it.

  • You get what you pay for. This excursion was a BIG shock from the opulent Dubai. First, the van was 30 minutes late. He made a stop to pick up another group who were another 30 minutes late. At this point, the entire 4x4 truck was filled shoulder to shoulder. The driver did not speak to us. He only spoke to the other guests who were also Indian and spoke his native language even though he spoke perfect English. He did not explain anything to us. He made a stop for gas and did not say he was going to make a stop. He stopped for air in his tire and did not tell us he was making a stop. Even while driving in the dunes, he didnt even try to make it exciting by saying hold on or were going down I mean, NOTHING AT ALL. The bathroom was AWFUL... no exaggeration. If you do choose this package, bring paper towel or toilet paper for yourself. In summary, I am convinced these 5 star reviews are employees. Ive used Viator in the past and this was by far a terrible experience.

  • The desert tour was really exciting and great. The trip gave us an opportunity to really see the desert. The guide was very knowledgeable, experienced and very informative.
    The vehicle was comfortable and handled the sand dunes very well. In addition, the stop also included the chance to partake in quad bike riding, another fantastic experience.
    Finally, the dinner at the bedoiun camp was interesting as well as the shopping available and the belly dancer. Overall, an experience not to be missed.
