Know More about this tour

Leave your central Dubai hotel in your air-conditioned 4x4 and set off into the empty desert that surrounds the city.

As you travel, listen as your guide explains Dubais transformation from fishing village to gleaming metropolis in just a few decades, and watch how the light gold sands of the desert change color, shifting first to dark browns and then to deep reds.

Then, head off-road into whats known as the Lahbab area of desert, famous for its rolling dunes. Admire the surreal beauty of the desert and hold tight as your driver heads for the biggest slopes. Then, feel the adrenalin rush as your 4x4 ascends and skids down the sandy heights feeling the sands slip under the wheels is a serious thrill!

Afterward, stop to take photos of the desert sunset as it casts the dunes in dusky golds and oranges, and then continue to a Bedouin-style outdoor camp nestled amid the sands.

Walk into the lamp-lit camp and enter a beautiful Bedouin tent. Sink into the cushions and enjoy an Emirati welcome of Arabic coffee and dates, and the offer of an aromatic shisha (water pipe).

Then, enjoy your choice of the complimentary activities on offer. Ride a camel, try sand boarding, get a henna tattoo and if you wish, ride a desert buggy (additional cost) over the sands.

Later, sit down to a delicious barbecue dinner under the stars. Dig into grilled meats, salads, main courses and desserts served with sodas and mineral water, and if you wish, purchase additional drinks (own expense) from the cash bar.

During and after dinner, enjoy a host of live Arabic music and entertainments, including belly dancing and tanoura folk dances, with whirling dervish-style dancers performing eye-popping costume transformations as the spin across the floor.

When the time comes, ride back to Dubai in your 4x4 where your experience ends with a hotel drop-off.

  • This experience was not the best. It didnt match the itenarery. The guide was having difficulty with communication with his clients. Also did not seem really interested in making sure the tourists were happy and enjoying themselves. He left us in the middle to to do our own thing. There were a couple of events that we wanted to do but were missed off. E.g. sand boarding.
    The evening meal and entertainment was not bad.
    Overall a little disappointed.

  • Amazing tour

  • This was one of the best tours i did in dubai it was just amazing being on a desert with sand as far as you could see and what made it more amazing was our tour guide who was very friendly and helpful in taking pictures if i ever went back i would want him again as our driver im sorry i do not remember his name tho :

  • Ive done other desert safaris before and I think this one, in comparison, pales a bit. The staff was great and the car was beautiful. But, the dune bashing was about 30 minutes, sand boarding is like 5 minutes, camel ride is literally get on a camel and trot in a circle, and dinner was a big group buffet. For the price, the expectations/outcomes didnt quite match the price.

    Either find a cheaper one and probably get the same cookie cutter itinerary or pay a bit more for agencies like Platinum Heritagr which really make a more special, cultural l program.

  • Great tour!

  • great tour with good tour leader, good experience as expected.

  • Our driver was amazing. He provided a fun and thrilling ride...very good driver. He outlined options ie camel ride, henna, sand boarding etc and was very helpful...he seemed to be having a good time and seemed to enjoy our company...not just a job!! Thank you and I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

  • This tour was fantastic from the moment my 3 boys and I were picked until we were dropped off. Full of fun, action and laughter. It was great start to our 6 week holiday and would highly recommend this tour. Our driver was terrific and made everything special. Thanks for a memorable day!

  • This tour was everything. I loved the sand boarding and time to take pictures. It was amazing. The camel riding was awesome. Dinner was good and the show and shopping was great. The guide was amazing very informative and nice.

  • Great fun...though prepare for a bumpy ride as thats what its all about! Its amazing where they take you in the 4x4s! It's a must!
