Fantastic experience - book up!

This was an absolutely fantastic experience with a very friendly tour guide. I would definitely recommend the half day tour, a couple in the tour I was in had done the longer evening trip and said this was much better with less hanging around . The whole experience was amazing and exceeded my expectations. The sandboarding is like a mini work out climbing back up the dunes! The meal at the camp was delicious and catered for all needs and you could ask for more food or drinks at any point. This was an epic way to end my flying 2 day stop over in Dubai.

Highlight of my Dubai trip

This was the highlight of my vacation in Dubai. The guide Kassim gladly spread his great knowledge about Dubai and the desserts. The schedule of the tour is well thought through, you have enough time for all the activitities. When I visit Dubai next time I hope that Kassim will be able to give a sunset tour.

Awesome safari

We got picked up at the hotel and had a great driver, who really knew how to dune bash. We stopped for photos in the dunes and did sandboarding. Then went to camp, rode camels for a bit and had a delicious brunch. Strongly recommended.

Great morning with OceanAir

I had a good solo Dubai layover thanks to this tour! I was picked up from an airport hotel by Akbar, our guide. He was friendly and fluent in English, telling me about the history of the city and his own past as we drove to pick up the rest of the guests. The car was a modern, comfortable Land Cruiser. After picking up the rest of the group (total of 6 guests), we drove for about an hour towards the desert. Akbar explained the sights along the way. At the rest stop you can pay for 20mins on an ATV in a section of desert, but as no one else in the group wanted to, I opted not to. The desert 'dune bashing' was fun, not exactly a rollercoaster but thrilling experience nonetheless. Akbar was an expert, showed us all a good time while keeping us feeling safe. After about 30 mins (feels longer) we stopped for photos and sandboarding. Each car only carries one board so you have to wait your turn. It was fun to try, got very sandy. You'll need a shower and a change of socks at the very least, if you don't book a hotel room like me. All in all, a good way to spend half of my layover. The guide will drop you wherever you want after the tour within Dubai, so you can continue your layover easily. Thanks to Akbar!

Brilliant Tour - would recommend

This was by far our favourite tour in Dubai. We experienced an excellent service from the moment we were picked up! We were really well looked after by Nouman (who was also hilarious and had a great selection of what I think was 'Arabian House/Dubstep' for the 4x4 sand dune bashing)! In the space of 4-5hrs we had done sand dune quad biking (this was an extra cost, but worth it), 4x4 sand dune bashing, sand boarding, camel riding and eaten a traditional Arabian brunch! It was just the best way to spend a morning on our short trip to Dubai. Excellent value and we even came away with some great videos/pictures - never experienced anything like it. Really recommend! :)

Super experience: complète et de très bon rapport qualité prix. "Rodeo" en voiture dans les dunes, surf sur les dunes, promenade en chameau et brunch. Très bien organisé, très pro. Définitivement à faire quand on est à Dubai.
