Afternoon desert safari

Really enjoyed our trip on an afternoon desert safari. Our guide Sahib was really knowledgeable about Dubai and the desert, nothing was too much trouble for him and we felt safe throughout the dune bashing. The camp was great with all activities advertised available, the BBQ dinner was also very good. Thanks Sahib and orient tours for a great experience.

From start to finish it was a great trip the drive around the desert was fantastic just like being on a rollercoaster the camp and food was good and meeting the camels.

Desert Safari plus Camping

The experience was absolutely brilliant!!! Everything was organised perfectly. Many surprises too!! So many activities to do. Very professional drivers and comfortable luxury vehicles. Even the vehicles were modified (reinforced) for additional safety. Our Desert Safari Land Cruiser Captain was Asif, he was absolutely a gem of a man- very professional, friendly, cordial, helpful, caring and funny. I can give all 5 Stars and million more Stars for the awesome experience.

A special thanks goes to Bryce, the ticketing Agent from My City Expert who was very friendly and helpful all the time. Equally funny as Asif. He made sure everything went well until we came back to our hotel.

Thanks Orient Tours, Asif & Bryce for the best experience of my life
Awesome Desert Experience!

My first desert safari and I highly recommend this one! The driver was professional and easy to follow. The sand dune bashing was way more exciting than I expected. Try to get the front seat view. The food and show was really good. And surprisingly the desert was quite relaxing.
