A fantastic tour
Jason_P
, Aug 2022
This is a great tour and a perfect way to get out of the city for an evening. The desert is magical, and the dune bashing and evening entertainment are excellent. The one thing that lets the trip down a little is the fact that you get hardly anytime on the back of a camel - just enough time for a photograph. I'd still definitely recommend the trip though.

Wonderful Dessert Safari
Jennifer_T

This desert safari is really an experience - not only with a dreamlike scenery but also perfectly organized, down to the smallest detail. Rashid our driver, was super punctual and very cordial, and the trip through the dunes was spectacular. What you get here for the price is really an experience. I would especially like to highlight the super delicious evening meal. Anytime gladly again.

4x4 drive was epic- our guide Faizy was amazing, we loved it. It is impossible not to enjoy this tour. Sand boarding, camel rides, we paid extra for quads, henna tattoos, food/drink, entertainment, star gazing - all incredible. An evening in the desert like this is priceless.

Great Tour
Nisha_P

Thank You, Abdul Rasheed Do this tour, you won't regret it. It is jam packed from start to finish. Abdul, our driver picked us up from the hotel and was very communicative about exact times. After a quick gas stop, we seemlessly transitioned into off roading mode for a fun dune ride. There were a few chances to stop, catch air and take photos. My friend is picky about photos and was won over by Abdul's photo skills. He volunteer to take as many as we wanted! The stop at the camp is packed with things to do or simply rest and enjoy a good meal and show. The whole crew was great and Abdul made sure we were taken care of the whole time. Ask nicely and get a scenic view of the Zayed Grand Mosque on your ride to the hotel.

The dune bashing but is crazy fun! A great company to go on a desert safari with!
Tania_H
, Jun 2022
We are so glad we booked this- it has been the highlight of our trip! We had the most amazingly skilled driver in Anver driving a brand new Land Cruiser ‘dune bashing’ through the desert, followed by more sedate activities like sand boarding, camel riding, dressing up in traditional clothes and henna painting in a desert camp. The evening buffet was plentiful and the belly dancer followed by the guy demonstrating a spinning traditional dance were great to watch. We did a brief bit of stargazing before heading back from the desert into Abu Dhabi which was about an hour’s journey. A great activity for the whole family- perhaps don’t eat to close to setting off! We would totally recommend doing this with this company!

Absolutely fantastic trip! The 4x4 driving through the dunes was exhilarating! Sand boarding on the dunes was hilarious and camel riding was much fun. We paid extra for quad bike riding also which was well worth it and very reasonably priced The staff were amazing, nothing was too much bother for them and they looked after us from start to finish. Excellent service, I highly recommend.

Amazing trip, with thrill seeking sand dune bashing being the ultimate highlight of the evening! If I’m honest, the camel ride was short and the sand boarding could’ve been better organised, but the meal and entertainment was fantastic.

The 4x4 driving was great! The food was good as was the entertainment, the only disappointment was the camel ride - it lasted probably one minute max! Treated more like a photo op than an actual ride.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
We are glad that you took the time in giving your feedback about your experience with us. Its our pleasure to know that you have enjoyed the drive and food. The camel ride is also an activity along with the other activities in the desert safari, this why its little short. But who ever wants to experience the camel ride more we have exclusive Camel Trekking, that would be a 30 minutes trekking operating every day from 7.00 AM, I hope you can join in next time, Looking forward to seeing you once again on one of our tours.
