    This desert safari was by far the BEST! The dune bashing was exhilarating! If you are visiting Dubai this safari is a MUST!!!! The customer service is amazing as well! I highly recommend!

    We enjoyed the 20 minutes of crashing in the sand dunes. It was fun without being terrifying. After we finished that, the driver took us to a camp and things went downhill from there. Our package was supposed to include sand boarding, camel rides, henna tattoos, drinks and food. There were hundreds of other people there and there appeared to be a company party as well. There was only 1 sand board for everyone to take turns on and the hill to ride it was 3 meters long and wasn't large enough to get any momentum. After waiting in line for close to 45 minutes, our kids were put on camels for a ride that lasted less than 1 minute. We were told that we could pay more for a longer ride. We took our daughter for a henna tattoo and were told she could only get a very small one on her hand and she couldn't even choose the design. We could pay more for larger tattoo that she could choose. When we went to get drinks, we were told they were only giving water before dinner and soft drinks would be served once dinner started. We could pay more to get soft drinks or juice before dinner. We could also pay 50 AED per person to bring food to our table rather than standing in line for it. Dinner wasn't served until after 7:30 pm, but of course, we could pay extra to get food earlier. The bathrooms were filthy and they didn't have toilet paper or paper towels. Once food was finally served, it was all cold. The whole night was a huge disappointment for our family. We would not recommend this trip.

    Dune bashing was super exciting. The rest was really a mass tourism thing. It was alright for an evening.

    The driving itself is amazing but the campsite is very rowdy and you are targeted to buy overpriced trinkets. Enjoyed it but definitely wouldnt go again. The car we were didnt have proper seats at the back which meant we were uncomfortable for most of the journey.

    This tour is highly recommended. The safari Desert tour is a must for anyone visiting Dubai! The host ensures a very enjoyable evening and a holistic Dubai experience. Would definitely do it again!!

    It was great. Our driver was fantastic. Everyone must try it.

    The dune bashing was great. However the driver was late picking us up from our apartment and because of this, we missed our camel ride. There was no sand boarding and the venue and food was very basic. The experience was certainly not worth the money we paid. We did complain to Viator and are still awaiting a response.

    our tour guide was fantastic, we had the front jeep. he made sure we were at the front of the line for everything and had a great personality, making jokes and putting us at ease.
    fab experience

    Had a blast with my fellow passengers from Holland! Wish I had known it how cold it was going to be that night.
