Thanks a lot to very professional and nice guide Sharaf! We had excellent trip, dune riding was amazing! Sharf is real professional in safary driving and told us a lot of interesting things about Dubay during road to dunes. 4 hours trip if you travel with kids is enough. Definitely recommend.

Pretty good except the guide didn’t take us sandboarding as advertised. We mentioned it and he said we were short on time. Boyfriend and I were very disappointed about that. However overall a good time.

The tour to the desert was absolutely memorable and my little boys enjoyed our tour guide's driving skills in sand dune. Camels were very clean, sand boarding was also fun. Everything went well and covid safe, all credits go to our wonderful tour guide Aamerr Abbas, he made our adventure first class! Thank you Aamerr. Highly recommended.

I am first time in Dubai and it was one of the best experiences. Our guide named Ansari was very helpful, funny and shared a lot of important information. He help us to take many beautiful pictures and suggested good places to visit. Fantastic trip, delicious food, desert ride on a bike and car was so fun. Would definitely recommend, worth every single penny! We felt very well looked after.

The Covid care was excellent. My temperature was taken when I was getting into the car and gel was used at every transition. SAAJ was an excellent guide: knowledgeable about Dubai, friendly and caring - he loves to take a good photo! All in all great. The best bit was the dune bashing!

SAAJ was an excellent guide. He turned up perfectly on time and was very Covid-aware, taking my temperature immediately and providing sanitiser throughout the the trip at each transition. He was respectful and knowledgeable, providing interesting facts and figures as we drove through Dubai. The activities were fun and SAAJ was very careful, reminding us of safety procedures throughout the trip. The dune-bashing was my favourite part of the trip. SAAJ was a brilliant driver. It was a thrill.

Saaj with the great music

This was a great trip and totally worth the money. Saaj, our driver was very accommodating and an excellent driver. His taste in music made the dune bashing all the more exciting and he was excellent at taking photos (there were plenty of opportunities). The facilities were great at their camp and their camels were definitely kept well and healthy. I couldn’t have asked for more.

Fantastic experience - book up!

This was an absolutely fantastic experience with a very friendly tour guide. I would definitely recommend the half day tour, a couple in the tour I was in had done the longer evening trip and said this was much better with less hanging around . The whole experience was amazing and exceeded my expectations. The sandboarding is like a mini work out climbing back up the dunes! The meal at the camp was delicious and catered for all needs and you could ask for more food or drinks at any point. This was an epic way to end my flying 2 day stop over in Dubai.
