          Awesome experience
          Really nice experience and our driver was awesome. The driver picked us up from home and dropped us back after the excursion for an extra 50 AED. The back seat of the SUV is uncomfortable hence the 4 stars instead of 5 stars. When the rough driving starts it's better to be in the front or the middle seats

          Nice morning trip!
          Very nice trip, we recommend the morning trip as there is less people! Our guide was nice and we were the only two people in the car from and to the hotel - therefore go with the morning trip!

          What a great experience
          We didn’t know what to expect. This tour was a gift. We were on time and everyone at the marina was super helpful. We got a welcome Turkish coffee and juices. The buffet started kinda early. The staff was so friendly. since my husband was injured, a nice lady helped him to get food from the buffet. There was a nice selection. Everything we tried, was delicious. The staff members were very friendly. The atmosphere was great. The view at the marina and jbr was so lovely. We also had entertainment, which was an oriental dance/show. We really had a great time and enjoyed every moment. Thank you!

          Location of the pickup was confusing. Event itself was good food choices were limited. Very enjoyable apart from those two minor issues.

          The best day
          Unbelievable experience! Best day of our holiday so far! 2pm pick up and around 9.30pm drop off. We had our two kids with us (3&2years old) and they absolutely loved it too! We had Abbas as our guide and he was extremely knowledgable and an amazing guide! Couldn’t recommend him and this tour any more!! A must do

        I really didn’t like our experience. The “guide”
        didn’t tell me the plans of the the other group the was in the same car. The other group rented a bugie to drive in the desert in out first stop, so the “guide” said for us when we arrived “or stay here waiting or rent a bugie/quad to go with us”. So, I didn’t have choice and had to pay 250 dirhams to rent a quad ( I wouldn’t stay in the desert in a very hot place walting the other group about 30 minutes). Ok. We drove in the desert and went to the car’s “guide”, so he drived in the desert and stopped to do sandboard and take some pictures of the “Sunset”. The problem was we actually didn’t wait untill the real Sunset (the real Sunset happened when we were going to the desert camp, so we didn’t watched it). Where we arrived, (at night) in the desert camp, to ride the camel and eat the “barbecue” , there was a big line full of rude people trying to jump in front of you to ride the Camel. Our photos were really bad because we arrived in the night in the camp desert, so it was very frustasting too. The staff of the desert camp were also very rude and didn’t care if we were enjoying or not. After the “Camel ride” (1 minute- 10 meters) I tried to take 2 drinks (one for me and one for my girlfriend) but the guy said I couldn’t take two and just gave me one (the funniest was that the guy that jumped in front of me in line took 3 drinks…and was ok). After that, we ate the “barbecue” that was desgusting, watched the show ( the show was nice, mainly the fire show) and came back to the hotel (very dissapointed)

        The desert excursion was fantastic. The shows and characteristic foods made everything more complete.

        A special note of merit goes to our SUV driver Naveed who always drove the SUV safely and masterfully, also giving us numerous moments of fun on board and stops to photograph the sunset!

        Highly recommended!!!!

        Hotel pickup is not included for all hotels in Dubai - the website does not clearly state this or mention the fee charged for other hotels (we were in Jebel Ali). We only found out the fee on the morning of our tour. We found the staff to be rude and did not want us to proceed with the booking. The operator eventually cancelled our booking, citing that other groups on the day had postponed to a future date and so could not honour the booking.

        Hi Max Hanna, Thank you for your Review. It is clearly mentioned that pick up is available in centrally located hotels. You are staying in Jebel Ali hotel which is almost on Abu Dhabi side. I have explained this to you via whatsapp and you rudely asnwered me you don't want to pay. I have offered to cancel and refund. You changed your mind and finally agreed to go but when I asked you for re-confirmation, you just ignored my messages and my calls. There were cancellations because the entertainment shows were suspended which I even shared with you. If you find it rude for us informing the real time situation and trying to reach you out, then I don't know what kind of services you want. Regardless, thanks for your feedback. Regards

        Favorite part was the reception by Abbas, our Safari guide. The ride was awesome and the friendliness as well as the knowledge of UAE and Dubai Abbas has was educative to us all as he answered and explained well enough for all four people understood.
        To me one of the best Safari guide I have encountered..

        My husband and I are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in Dubai. We chose this tour for the experience and it was everything and more than we expected. Nawaz was our tour guide. He contacted us the night before to confirm our pickup and he was punctual. Nawaz was very friendly and took some awesome pictures for us. The BBQ, shows and camel ride was AWESOME! I would highly recommend this tour for couples, families or groups of friends. You won't be disappointed.

        The safari trip was excellent. Abbas, our guide, always kept us informed of what was happening next and made our trip fun!

        We started the day doing ATVs on the dunes, then headed to the dune bash (driven by Abbas), and then ended the evening with the bbq the amazing shows.

        There were plenty of opportunities for photos, meeting locals, enjoying culinary delights, and the amazing night shows.

        I would definitely do this again.

        Nawaz was our driver and guide for the afternoon / evening. Couldn't have been more accommodating. Felt safe and fun for all the family bashing through the dunes, riding the camels, sandbording and through the evening of bedouin entertainment and local food. Fantastic evening through and through. Answered any questions we had and very clear on activities available (if there were additional activities at cost) and generally friendly guy to spend the time with. Thanks for a great experience Nawaz.

        We made an online reservation for a desert safari tour. Our experience was nothing short of amazing as we indulged in thrilling dune-bashing and exciting sandboarding activities. The picturesque desert provided the perfect backdrop for capturing some incredible photographs. Overall, this desert safari tour was a fantastic experience, and I would highly recommend it to all my friends in Dubai.
