Departure Time

3:30 PM

Hotel pickups commence prior to this time, you must contact the local service provider to verify your exact pickup time.

Start your sandboarding experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Settle into your air-conditioned 4x4, and check out the views as you leave the city for the desert.

Watch the landscapes gradually turn hilly, and drive to some of the most beautiful dunes in the Dubai desert. After a safety briefing, grab a supplied sandboard and get instructions on how to position your feet and steer.

Climb a dune, strap the sandboard to your feet, and slide down the sands. Although the sport is similar to snowboarding, it’s easier to learn, so most people pick it up very quickly.

Slip and skid down the sands, and when you feel confident, stage a race with your fellow sandboarders.

Afterward, return to your Dubai hotel in your 4x4 where your experience finishes.

Visit to Al Qudra Lakes, Light refreshment (coffee, water, soft drink) and Arabian Oryx (Feeding Station) Photo Stop are included.

This is the perfect tour if you're wanting to try sandboarding. It is great fun but exhausting having to walk back up the dunes carrying your board after each turn. Our guide was friendly and informative and we enjoyed the dune bashing experience (and felt safe!) too.

The equipment's are for snowboarding i.e. you just can't get the straps tight enough to control the board take your biggest shoes with you and also one of them was broken! Walking up the dynes is a good exercise! Well, you'll get nice pics - been there done that!

It was good we were only with the 2 of us and a guide/driver. The guide picked us up at our hotel in time and we had a nice ride into the desert with some touristic information. The sandboarding was quite a dissapointment since you have to walk all the way up the sandy dunes, which is very very heavy. Therefor you only sandboard downhill for 1-2 times, because it's just to heavy and hot. We were ready sandboarding in max. 30 min. and drove back to Dubai, whereas the entire trip should have lasted several hours. I find it quite expensive for the experience and would 've appriciated honest information on this trip.

Dear Sandra K, We are sorry to hear about your disappointment. Your feedback makes us better. However, we would like to advise you that the excursion was conducted as per the tour description. Unfortunately, sand boarding is an activity that involves certain kind of "exercise" to do it. Usually our guests love to run the dunes and slide down with the boards.. We understand that you have expected different from this tour and apologize for the inconveniences caused. Our company values put customer satisfaction as top priority and we are committed to our customers. We look forward to serving you again. Best Regards, Sarah P. Dubke Manager Guest Services ORIENT TOURS LLC

Peter S

We left our hotel early, at 7 a.m., but at least we avoided the morning rush. It takes about 1 hour to get to the site, because of the early departure, we were the first there. Also it wasn't hot. Sandboarding is a fun activity. Depending on the group size, you have 3-4 turns on the board. The tour includes some driving among the dunes. Sometimes you may think the car will turn over, but the drives are well-trained, they keep the car on its wheels : If you have motion sickness you get seasick, air-sick or car-sick, this part is not for you. I recommend this if you spend only a short time in Dubai, but want to some outdoor activity. With an early start, you are free to do anything in the afternoon. One tip: use the air-pump at the service station to clean your shoes, so you won't pour the desert sand everywhere for weeks.
