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.

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.

Arif was very friendly, very punctual and brilliant with communication. He explained everything very well and made sure the group were okay throughout the trip. The tour was so much fun and was so lovely to see Dubai away from all the high buildings. Arif gave us lots of information about Dubai as we drove to the desert. The evening entertainment and BBQ was fab. Very enjoyable. The sand dunes were so much fun, definitely worth doing this tour

Syed was an amazing guide, very friendly and gave us lots of information about the area during the drive. We weren’t sure whether to do the quad bikes but he assured us that it would be lots of fun, which it was. We’re so glad we did it. The camel ride was fun and the sand boarding was too. All in all it was a brilliant afternoon, finished off by watching the sunset. We would highly recommend this trip.

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
