Your desert experience begins with pickup from your Dubai hotel, where you greet your guide and board an air-conditioned, SUV destined for the Arabian Desert.

On entering the desert, your guide deflates your tires and takes you on a rollercoaster ride as you crash through the dunes in your off-road vehicle. Then, visit an oasis and travel through a camel farm before stopping to watch a stunning sunset. Continue to a desert safari camp designed to represent a traditional Bedouin village for a camel ride, used as a means of desert transport by Arabs for centuries.   

If you’re a thrill-seeker, try your hand at sandboarding down desert dunes or opt to ride a quad bike at your own expense. Recline on soft Arabian carpets with a shisha pipe as professional artists adorn your hands and feet with henna and, once decorated, pose for photographs wearing traditional Arabian dress—please note, if you wish to purchase photographs, this is at your own expense.

Then, prepare yourself for the visual beauty of a belly dancing show, where professional dances swish and sway during a tanoura dance performance and fire show. Following the show is the feast, which includes shawarma, salads, mezze, Middle Eastern sweets, and more. Soft drinks and water are unlimited, but alcoholic beverages are at your own expense.

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Touring the desert with family
Armando_P

Everything about the tour is memorable. I do wish the camel ride was longer but the dune bashing made up for it. The food was great and good entertainment with the performers. Amsar was a great tour guide. Gave us many tips even after the desert on what to see in Dubai

A must if you a visiting Dubai. Me and my girlfriend enjoyed it a lot and it was one of the highlights of our stay in Dubai. Our guide was Asif and he was very kind and helpful. The music blasting from the car stereo during the dune bashing was great and in perfect sync with his driving which even further improved the experience. We enjoyed every bit of it and would highly recommend it to all my friends.

What an amazing tour! Best tour we have ever had and we are seasoned travelers. Best part was our incredible driver Asif, our desert safari was wild! Get ready, this will be the ride of your life! Going through the sand dunes and jumping and drifting down them was an experience to remember! The camp was nice, along with great food, fun show, beautiful sunset, camel rides, falcon and sand boarding! Highlight of our trip to Dubai. Asif is amazing and should be a Hollywood stunt driver!

Chead tour, cheap service
Rodrigo
, May 2021
Had a bad experience with ABC tours that wanted to charge extra USD 15 per person for a long dune bashing. The description does not mentioned anything about short or long dune bashing and what it means in terms of time. Of course I refused and asked them to provide what they advertised. As simple as that. About the tour, the only positive point was the friendly guide Asif. I have done desert Safari with others companies (yes, more expensive ones) and all I can say is that you take what you pay for. ABC is cheaper, but the service, the food, the shows, the camp, are all equality cheap.

**WE REQUEST ALL OF YOU TO PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY*** Thank you, Mr. Rodrigo – you may be the first one who expected more than what you paid or oversighted the inclusions of the Dinner Safari tour program. There are 4 tour safari variants, you opted the lowest price one and you got more than what you paid. We do not want any of our Tourists to have a negative impression on us, so we removed the US$37 package from today which was not one of our best-selling programs. Please think for US Dollar 37 net per person what all services we offered – 15 minutes experience with 4X4 land cruiser, BBQ Dinner, 3 live shows, sand boarding, camel riding, lady henna service, unlimited soft drinks, mineral water ,tea ,coffee, shisha and full Dinner. In Dubai one piece of Chicken kabab in a normal street restaurant they charge almost the same price you paid for all the above activities. We serve high quality food, cooked with highest standard of Hygiene - prepared and served by a Hotel in Dubai. We strictly do not prepare food in the desert as all the desert camp only got limited facilities. We offered you US dollar 15 to upgrade as very special rate (just to keep you engaged – while all other participants booked Premium program) as none of the guest on that particular day booked your so called ‘CHEAP TOUR”. Mr. Rodrigo Dubai is not a cheap destination whereas we are one of the most premium destinations on Earth. You and we all have travelled all around the world and you know a taxi service cost in the rest of the world for a 10 minutes taxi ride cost more than 37 Dollar in most of the countries. ABC Tours are committed in the principles of affordable Tourism services for all. Same program on same platform by a different name is sold by our competitor with double the price. They are far lower in their service than us. We are able to affords this price with world class product because the company owns all these products unlike others we do not outsource. We have one of the best camps in UAE, land cruiser jeeps, well trained staff. Hygiene is our priority therefore we spend a lot in our camp to maintain 5 Star Standards. Mr. Rodrigo we cannot believe that you been to Safari before, if so, you will never use the word cheap for our product. We stand firm on our commitment for highest quality at a lowest price.
