Amazing experience and enjoyed sand dune bashing. We booked a private safari and it was worth it. Our driver Noufan was very experienced and knowledgeable and kept us entertained. Loved the quad bikes rides. Very friendly team at the camp, food and entertainment was good. Will surely do this again if I am back in Dubai in future

This was really good value for money. We had the vehicle to ourselves. The guide/driver arrived promptly at our hotel lobby and was amiable throughout. He was an expert at driving at the sand dunes and we were safe and had fun. We had a quick visit to a camel farm. The camel ride was just a short circle around the area but it is enough for me. The entertainment during dinner could’ve been grander but I have no complaints if it means keeping costs down.
Best tour guide in Dubai

Mehul is the best your guide in Dubai hands down. He has so much knowledge on Dubai and he sense of humor was so fun and refreshing! His partner was an amazing bus driver and such a smooth ride all week for our tours. Thank you both for an amazing week in your beautiful city. We will be back.
Amazing memories made with everything you want from a desert safari

We were picked up on time from our hotel by our tour guide, Jaffar, who was absolutely brilliant. He chatted to us along the way and told us lots of interesting facts as we passed landmarks. Once in the desert we were able to take photos of the camels, then came dune bashing! This was such an exhilarating experience!! Next we went on to the camp where all activities were included; henna tattoos, shisha & traditional arabic coffee, camel rides, sand boarding and shows. We were also able to enjoy the most delicious bbq and there were as many soft drinks and water as you wanted. The camp was so well set out and there were clean toilets etc. I would recommend this trip to everyone, it was our most enjoyed activity of our holiday!
Nice desert experience with fantastic guide

The itinerary was quiet good. A stop at a camel farm with a lot of questions and answers. Some stops in the desert for taking pictures and of course the 4x4 driving across the desert. The camp does have a nice setup layout wise. You can go camel riding but it is just a short circle to take some pictures to be sold later on. The sand boarding is a disappointment as you will not move downhill. Not steep enough. You can take pictures with a falcon or have a henna tattoo. Drinks are included (except for alcohol) there are a few performance: dancer, fire artist and belly dancer. Food is a buffet with partly a bbq. What raised this tour a notch was the driver/guide Nabil. He answered all questions and ask himself as well and in the process pointed out many things along the way. He is a very knowledgeable and experienced guide. Highly recommended
