  • We had an experienced and very nice and safe driver, Ajmad. He picked us up on time. The dunes safari was thrilling and the BBQ meal was plentiful and delicious. We were very pleased to include this tour in our Dubai activities. We also took the tour of a Day in Abu Dhabi and our tour guide Binu was just excellent. He was also on time, knowledgeable and attentive. A must do tour if you have time to escape. We decided to include the buffet lunch optional and it was worth it!

  • The Safari, the driver/guide Amjad and the dunes were great. Amjad was extremely funny, witty and friendly. Being a local, he had a great deal of insights regarding Dubai. He was bang on time for pick up and took us for an excellent ATV ride. It was a little on the expensive side but as we decided at the last moment, it was kind of expected. On the safari itself, he is a very skillful driver - the roller coaster ride on the safari was stomach churning for some in our party of six but a lot of fun for the rest of us. He really was an excellent driver.

    The BBQ dinner and the live show left a lot to be desired. The food was just short of okay, the soft drinks were just not cold at all and the live shows were too few and too short. The belly dance was good but nothing exceptional. The other show with the glittery outfit was okay too.

    All in all for the safari and the guide, it was really good but for the BBQ dinner and Live Show, it could have been better,

  • Would highly recommend this trip! Out driver was excellent.

  • The Sand bashing was amazing the driver took extra mile to give us a fun ride.
    I didn't like the amount of time it took to go all the way to the desert, for us it was about 3 hour later we went there after picking up other customers from different hotel.
    Camp was from another company and it was boring.
    Camel ride was literally 1 min walk like.
    Dinner was pathetic with limited menu.
    Hena small size was free if you ask for big he will charge.

  • The safari is ok, I enjoyed the ride at the sand and the driver was quite nice, however it is not a trueee safari experience, they make everything jus for us, is very turistic, also, I did not like at all the henna tatoo, the lady was rude and dit it in 2 minutos, an other lady from England did not like as well, she even don talk to you. The food is ok, but you serve once and its not common to serve again, is not a real buffet!, It is a good experience but have in mind that is something very turistic that they made up for turists only!

  • would highly recommend this trip, we had such an amazing time, Amjad our driving and guide was fab, and a great photographer to boot, we had such fun driving up and down the sand dunes it was exhilarating, the camel ride was very short, the food and entertainment was good and plentiful. picked up and dropped back to hotel.
    i would definitely recommend this if you do nothing else on your visit to Dubai

  • This was amazing, our driver was really nice and helpful. He showed us around Dubai through out the drive, he was also an amazing photographer and offered to take pictur d of all the passengers. I would definitely recommend ABC tourism to my friends and family.

  • Really enjoyable trip and our driver was very good

  • AWESOME time!

  • We ended up blowing a tyre during the dune rides. We had to wait for close on an hour in the roasting sun for someone to deliver a replacement tyre as the spare tyre in the vehicle was unusable. Although the driver was very apologetic, these are basics which need to be checked before taking off. We were also very disappointed in the meal in the evening.
