This tour was indeed the highlight of our trip to Dubai! Enjoyed every minute of it!! We were picked up by our driver Sahib who welcomes us with a smile. He is such an excellent driver cum tour guide. Very knowledgeable, he could answer all our questions about the country. He is also an excellent driver and for someone with motion sickness like myself, I was thankful to be seated in front beside him as that surely helps a lot in managing the motion sickness. He was very reassuring and ensured that we all had our safety belts on for the sand dunes bashing particularly. He constantly checks on us in the car to ensure that we are all doing alright. At the campsite, he came especially to the 4 of us who took his car to ensure that we had our dinner and even brought the drinks to us. Am very thankful to get him as our guide. Upon arrival at the campsite, we were given shawarma first to fill our hungry stomachs as they prepare the BBQ dinner. This is an excellent service as we were really hungry after all those sand bashing. We were indeed well fed as the BBQ dinner was also awesome! The other best thing is everything is already included, the food, the camel ride, the sandboarding, the falcon show. You only need to add money for the ATV if you want. I just wished that the camel ride was a little longerrr. Hehe.. Apart from that, I stronglyy recommend this tour and you shouldnt leave Dubai without it. ;)
Excellent tour, guides are knowledgeable however staying relevant is important for the guides, being over friendly doesn't help as tours might feel uneasy. Over all experience was super the company has experienced drivers and well maintained cars. We reached the camp at maghrib, one thing I missed was maghrib adhan in the desert it would have been breath taking for Muslims and experience of the glorious words for non Muslims. When we can have other announcements and loud music on public address why not adhan. Javaid was a good guide very friendly.
This tour has many features, with some being wonderful and others being very fine. We were picked up promptly as arranged at our hotel by Ali (our guide and driver) and he told us about some interesting features of Dubai on the way to "the desert." Once there, he raced us "over desert and dunes" in the 4x4 and it was thrilling to those whose previous experiences have been somewhat subdued. To the rest of us, it was fun and scenic. We then went to a "modern oasis" where we were able to ride quad bikes (driving them ourselves) and ride a camel. Again, for those who'd had these experiences before, this was "fun" and for the others it was "delightful."
Awesome Desert Safari tour with my family.
