Wonderful experience from start to finish! From the time we were picked up at our hotel, we were greeted with such warmth and welcoming by our affable and knowledgeable tour guide, Taj. Taj took the time to brief us on each scheduled activity, answer all our questions, and offer useful tips on how to maximize each experience. We started off with the ATV ride through the desert, then procedeed to do dune bashing, sand surfing, and camel riding, all of which was such great fun for the whole family!!

Imran was an amazing host, he kept in pod contact to arrange our lift and kept us up to date on when he would pick us up. He was very friendly and dealt with everything for us. He was by far the best dessert driver out of all the ones we were with. Imran was very helpful and took care of us at the desert camp , took all the photos of us on our phones and made sure we were sorted and comfortable at all times. He has a good taste in music for the ride in the desert and between the different locations. Wouldn’t hesitate to book with him again if we come back to Dubai. Overall amazing experience and a great host to help us make the most of the trip, our best one of the holiday.

Great itinerary and highly recommended activity when visiting Dubai. Our driver Zahid was well organised and gave us instructions at each stop in the desert experience. I really enjoyed the dune bashing, sand boarding and the camp activities to end the night. The short camel ride was definitely a highlight as well as the amazing entertainment provided at the camp Al Jabal Village. The bbq dinner was superb, amazing food was provided and well organised. Just be prepared for various sellers approaching you selling various souvenirs etc

This excursion is truly amazing. We started off the day dunning through the desert, then sand boarding and had time to take plenty pictures, then camel riding, and finally dinner and show at a desert compound. The food was delicious. We were served BBQ chicken and lamb, with plenty side dishes and unlimited drinks. Nameer was our driver, who was funny, patient and outgoing. He made our experience super fun and enjoyable. We truly had great time, and were conveniently picked up and dropped off at our hotel. I highly recommend this excursion. It’s a great price for all that is included.

Felt super safe from pickup. Our driver was fab and lovely to our six year old daughter. We had a great day and definitely recommended. A must for desert pics too and no extra charges once you’re there as we’ve found with other experiences. Thank you

Mr. Taj showed extreme level of professionalism. He was exactly on time while picking me up from my location. He went an extra mile to make me comfortable, he was very open for conversation and really told me everything about different places in dubai and where i can go to. He was very polite and jolly. Really loved the experience. I would definitely want Mr. Taj again next time i come to Dubai

I especially loved the dune bashing and the ATV ride! However, if you are faint of heart, you may want to consider skipping out on the dune bashing, lol. To then cap what was already a fun-filled day, we had the pleasure of indulging at the BBQ buffet dinner while watching a show of beautiful traditional dance performances...just an overall delight!! In short, our day's agenda was perfectly planned and executed! I would definitely recommend this activity for anyone visiting Dubai! "

It was not as great as I was expecting. First of all, it was disappointing that we were not informed that so many things are chargeable. For example, the first stop was at a quad biking area where you had to pay 200 AED for 20 mins of biking - or else wait for 40 mins doing nothing. The sunset photo shoot was not included as during the sunset time we were inside the car going somewhere. Desert stop was nice but very crowded as there were more than 15 cars that made a stop there. Finally, the camel ride is literally 2 minutes and also in the dark cause it was after sunset. The dinner and show experience were overall of good quality but everything felt very "tourist trap"- even here , the "free henna" and "free shisha" were only free partially.. the food was tasty and there was a lot available. Show was enjoyable too.
