It was a great experience not to be missed. The 4wd trip out to the camp was OMG amazing and scary all at the same time. The dunes were amazing. The camp was good as well as the meal.

Wonderful experience. The ride around the sand dunes can be a little rough if you are prone to motion sickness. I sat in the front seat because of this and had no problems. Several cars had to stop and let people out to vomit. Just be aware this can be a problem.

Exciting exhilarating but not for the faint hearted. Nearly died going up and down some of the sand dunes but we were fortunate to have Mohamed who was the lead driver with 12 other 4WD behind. The camp was also interesting as was the camel ride and watching the dancing. The whirling dervish before dinner and the belly dancing after.

SO MUCH FUN! The ride into the desert is of course the best part! When you arrive at the camp, there are camels to ride, shisha to smoke, food to eat, and entertainment after sunset. Really a wonderful evening. We did not have the option of falconry or henna, like some other tours provide. But we didn't miss it. Tons of food options to please everyone, and alcohol is available for purchase. A must-do in Dubai!

We were on the rear-rear seats of Toyota Land Cruiser and it was a little uncomfortable during the desert ride. Except that everything else was really nice experience ... photo stops in desert, camel ride, Bedouin village in desert, dinner. Really nice and something different to see except Dubai city lights and skyscrapers!

the Desert experience was awesome. the tour company sent us an email two days before to confirm our address and also sent a letter to the hotel. the driver was on time to pick us up and was very friendly and explained to us everything during the drive and also told us a bit about the Emirati culture etc. the Dune Bashing was awesome! our kids loved it and would definitely do it again!!! the camp was clean and the food adequate. only downside was the very brief Camel ride and the exorbitant prices charged for the photos and the mementos in the kiosks at the camp. they also didnt take Credit cards for any purchases so be sure to carry some Cash. would highly recommend the tour. traveled December 2016

Great adventure, loved the dune bashing, sand boarding and the sunset was amazing, only thing that let it down was the camel ride, there were 3 camels, you got on went round in a circle of about 20m then off again, not really a camel ride and the kids were disappointed.
