Know More about this tour

After Dubai hotel pickup at about 3pm, hop inside a comfortable, air-conditioned 4x4, and set off on your 6-hour desert experience. Watch as desert sands replace the city’s skyscrapers, and hear about the desert’s ecology from your guide.

Enjoy a dune bash with a professional driver at the wheel of your 4x4, and visit a camel farm in the sands. See these hardy animals up close and enjoy a camel ride around the enclosures.

Next, continue off-road to a desert camp set among rolling dunes. Here, grab a sand board and enjoy surfing down the slopes. Get tips from your guide on mastering your board, and increase your speed as your confidence builds.

As the sun sets, relax at the camp, and if you wish, get a henna tattoo on your hands or feet, and puff a shisha (Arabic water pipe). Then, savor a succulent barbecue buffet dinner of classic Arabian dishes like hummus (chickpea dip) and marinated chicken. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.

As darkness falls, enjoy a tanoura display featuring whirling dervish-style dancers, plus colorful belly dancing, magic, and fire dancing shows.

Your desert experience then concludes with a Dubai hotel drop-off at about 9pm.

  • 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.

  • This tour with Zaki was so much fun! He was the best guide to have for this desert safari tour! He gave us amazing personal service, took awesome pictures and made sure we beat the lines at each stop! Zaki for the win!!!

  • Highly recommended! Firstly if you and #39;re looking at booking a dune bashing ride and you see another listing for this for more expensive... It is exactly the same just a different 4x4 car. Enjoyed it all, dunes, camels, relaxed, however no sand boarding. Good amount of time and food, well organised.

  • the tour was a nice experience but our driver was rude and had an older bad odor vehicle. keeps on turning off the ac while having 7 people inside the suv. drives crazy almost hit another car on the way to the dessert.

  • Great desert ride and nice driver but the oasis was terrible. Food was ok but hosts were not nice and everything after arriving there was badly organized.

  • Very Nice driver. Good 4WD car. Recommended activity if you stay in Dubai for a few days.
