Exciting dunes ride ruined by up-sells and bad tourism
suelander2017
, Jan 2020
Before I go any further, I would like to express that the car ride on the dunes along with sand boarding was a great experience and it was a lot of fun. Unfortunately our tour got off to a bad start as our driver turned up 45 minutes earlier than he was supposed to. We are told he had tried to contact us that day but they can't expect us to pick up the message and change our plans as we were out doing other things. I found this rather chaotic and it did not put us in the best mood. The driver was unapologetic and blamed us for the mishap for not checking our messages. When the car tyre pressures are being altered for driving on the dunes, you are taken to a strange place where you are practically forced by the workers into their shops where they try to convince you to buy head scarves, snacks, and more. This happened 3 times, which was really not great. A similar thing happened throughout the night. There was the camel ride - but there were people haggling with you to pay money for another camel ride with no queue. There were people coming round while you were seated trying to sell you bottled sand art, corn on the cob and drinks which were not included in the trip fee. To top this off, the other people in the car with us wanted to leave at about 6:30pm before we had even eaten. Our driver spent most of the night trying to talk us into leaving early to please the others, which was ridiculous as we had paid the money to eat and watch the shows which we had not done yet. By the end of the night, we had had enough and had a very unnerving drive home with crazy driving which made us feel very unsafe. We almost had a collision with another tour vehicle who actually pulled us over to tell the driver he was putting us in danger. This only angered him more so we had a rant and road rage to complete the evening. Regrettably I would not recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip into the desert. Not for those who suffer from motion sickness or don't do roller coasters! Our driver Nawaz was a wonderful host and ambassador of the company

We had an afternoon free up and we were looking for something to do. We decided to book this tour at the last minute and it was a great decision. We did sand bashing, sand boarding and topped it off with a dinner in the desert where we saw 3 different shows. The flame thrower was my favorite. Our driver, Sohiel, picked and dropped us off and killed the sand bashing. Would definitely do this again.

My experience during Dubai desert safari trip.
Jeff_Bale11

My overall experience is just okay. Time management is not right. We had to stay for 45 minutes and doing nothing in the quad bike rental area, although nobody in our group took the ride. After the dune bashing, we reached the desert camp at 6.45pm. The buffet dinner was just served at 7.00 pm, and at the same time the 3 live dances were shown. During this very limited time, we had to take our dinner, watch the live shows, smoke shisha, get the hand painting. Then suddenly everybody was requested to leave the camp by 8.00 pm without prior notice. In the end, we had no time to take photos in Arabic costume and take the camel ride. It was quite disappointing experience as not enough time was given in the desert camp.

Not what we expected
Warren B
, Oct 2018
It was good to be in a small group of 5 but the driver / “guide” was only a driver. Apart from introducing himself on pickup there was almost zero interaction from him and nothing in the way of being a guide. I thought he was more interested in making phone calls than anything else with his tour guests. We stopped for an hour at a place that does quad bikes. Another stop for souvenirs and water (no bottled water was ever offered during the trip). The dune bashing was as we expected. Certainly the desert photo opportunity was great. The stop at the Bedouin tent for dinner not quite what we expected either with a capacity of 490 guests. We paid extra AED100 on arrival for the VIP seating and table service. That was probably worth it although it depends on your definition of service - seats were good but service - well, not really. Food quality was also poor and almost as an afterthought to the other activities. An overrated and overpriced experience

DONT BOOK THIS TOUR YOU WILL BE...

DONT BOOK THIS TOUR YOU WILL BE SORRY This was the worst tour I ever been on. We had to look for the man was told he was inside with a blue shirt you know how many men with a blue shirt well we found him. He came outside. Never told us his name we got in his van he NEVER SAID A WORD TO US. TALKED ON HIS PHONE TEXT ALL THE TIME DRIVING. All the way to a place he drop us off to seat outside in the heat for 2 hrs at this place to buy stuff. The drive was over 1hr I DID NOT PAY TO SEAT OUTSIDE AND DO NOTHING FOR 2 HR I PAID TO GO TO THE DESERT. We all were very mad. The one guy text him he never answers him. When he came we got to the Desert all most before it got dark. I wanted to see the desert before dark. WHY PICK US UP TO SEAT OUT IN THE HEAT NOT THE DESERT WITH I PAID FOR NOT TO SEAT AT A REST PLACE OVER 2 HRS. Then the drive back from the desert same thing he was talking on his phone. I think it a law NO talking on phone in Dubai.IT THE LAW This is my first Viator tour and I am NOT HAPPY AT ALL. I email Viator AND DID NOT GET ANYTHING BACK FROM THEM so I guess that was OK to have a tour like this DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR VERY BAD
