Worth the money - do not miss it!

We had lots of fun during our morning desert tour - plenty of sand activities. For me, the quad ride and dune bashing were thrilling experiences, and my girlfriend loved camel riding. Sandboarding was entertaining, a bit more challenging to balance than I thought, but we had lots of laughs watching each other as we tried to conquer the dunes. An exciting day, for sure. All in all, it was worth the money. I would recommend anyone visiting Dubai not to miss this experience!

Sam

An amazing dune-bashing adventure!

Great outing early in the morning! Our family had an incredible time on the sunrise desert safari! The dune-bashing experience with the land cruiser was so much fun! Our guide and driver, Khalid, was an excellent driver and also kept us entertained throughout the day with so many stories about Dubai and the UAE. He really made our experience so much better. The booking process went smoothly, we were picked up from our hotel on time. Overall, this was such an amazing adventure!

Liam

Such a unique desert BBQ experience!

Excellent ride with Mr Arif. Outgoing and fun. For me, the highlight of the tour was the camel ride and BBQ at Al Khayma Bedouin camp. Smooth transfer to camp. The food was delicious - we enjoyed tasting different Arabian specialties, and we loved lamb kebabs and shawarma. Amazing experience.I bought a necklace with my name in Arabic, a special treat. Friendly staff. This was truly an unforgettable desert safari experience!
