Departure Time

Between 3:00pm and 4:00pm
After pickup from your central Dubai hotel, relax into your climate-controlled vehicle and journey into the desert outside the city.

Watch as the terrain changes into orange, rolling dunes, and head off road for your 4x4 dune drive. Race up the sands as your driver spins the steering wheel, and hold tight as you 4x4 skids back down.

Afterward, visit a highpoint to absorb stunning views over the dunes as the sun sets, and capture the scenery on camera. Then, continue to a Bedouin-style desert camp.

Receive a traditional Arabian welcome, and relax on the comfy floor cushions and carpets before enjoying a host of desert activities. If you wish, try sand boarding, ride a camel, or hire a quad bike (additional cost). You may also want a henna tattoo, to puff on a shisha (Arabia water pipe) or dress in Arabic costume for a photo opportunity.

As dusk falls, savor a mouth-watering barbecue buffet dinner with unlimited sodas, mineral water, tea, and coffee. While you eat and relax, enjoy glittering live entertainment: watching as belly dancers, fire dancers, and whirling ‘tanoura’ performers take center stage.

Afterward, return to Dubai, where your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.

Badly organized tour on the part of Sky Tourism! A real let down Viator! The driver was late by 1.5 hours! I called that morning to confirm the time and was told we would be picked up between 3.15pm and 3.45pm. At 4.15pm Hotel called them again to learn that the driver is late and he is on his way. We were finally picked up at 4.40pm. We missed the sunset because of that. He was a nice guy - but drove erratically with his eyes on the 3 mobile phones talking, sending massages or checking almost all the time all the way to the desert - felt very unsafe. Not only he was terribly late we stop at some shops for water and souvenirs - there was no need for that - we were standing and waiting for I don't know what in an extreme heat, the little shops weren't air-conditioned. Utterly unnecessary waste of time where people obviously trying to sell you things! We were dropped off after the dune bashing at the camp without any directions where to go, what to do, what is available to take a part in - he just told us where tea, coffee and water was and instructed us to seat anywhere we find an empty table, thank you and disappeared. The show and the food at the camp was good but we felt it was a pandemonium in the heat and sand! Would not recommend to use this operator again!

So many things to do and see. The sand dune driving was exhilarating with our skilled driver. Was able to ride a camel, get a henna tattoo and enjoy many different types of food. Some of the experiences weren't clearly marked so we missed out on the photo in traditional Arab clothing. We took photos with a bird of prey, but weren't told until afterwards that it was a paid offering so that was awkward. The belly dancing, fire dancing and spinning tanoura shows were excellent, however it was during when the buffet was served so you had to choose between them. We chose to watch the shows and missed out on many of the buffet items as the food trays weren't refilled once empty.

Beware of the hard sell at the gift shop upon exiting the venue. We were asked to get out so that the tires could be properly inflated and hearded into a gift shop and given the hard sale with items over priced by 3 times what they were priced in the city! Good dune bashing but if I had to do this again I'd go elsewhere.

A MUST to do in Dubai! I liked a Lot. We were a group of 6 young adults. First the pick you up in the hotel. The drive like and hour to the desert. Change cars to begin the drive to the sand dunes. This is a wild and exciting drive. After that you get to the camp to see the folkloric dance good, belly dancer super nice and a dance of fire the best. Have a dinner of local food. Food quality OK but not to die for. non alcoholic drinks included and unlimited. I have only a negative review of our pickup driver. He showed like an hour late. He was kind of lost in the city so we almost could not see the sun set in the safari tour. We think he was new and was a little disoriented. But we had a great time anyways. the take you back to the pickup point.

Great value for money. Only minor issue was the wait for our driver after dinner - annoying with small kids in the cold desert evening. Otherwise a great trip!
