  • 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.

  • Desert Safari, car and tour guide were all awesome. Performances and dance shows were excellent.
    Food was pathetic. We could see everyone leaving their food incomplete.

  • This tour lived up to the description. It was a bit crammed in the vehicle getting out to the dessert and the dune ride itself. Other than that, it was a fun night all the way round. Dining in the dessert is a large affair with people from many tour groups but it was well organized and the food was good. I paid a few bucks extra for a camel ride didn't want to stand in line and it was super neat. The sunset and desert moon were really something in the desert. There are not a lot of options to have this experience so be prepared to be in tourist mode. I would recommend this to my friends regardless of the touristy aspect. Just know that going in.

  • Not to be missed. Like nothing else in the world.

  • It was SUPER - if you like ride in sand dunes, try it.

  • We had an awesome time!!! Our tour guide was very sociable and fun. He pumped the music up after he let the air out of his tires so we could ride/glide/twist/ and turn through the desert. It was amazing!!! A once in a lifetime experience that will keep you smiling. The bbq dinner and show was alsogreat.

    trip was way more than money's  worth  and  your complimentary  visit  to see new year's fireworks  was a moment to reminisce  forever. Thank you so much Asad

  • 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,
