It was an amazing deal for a great excursion into the Dubai desert. So many activities included for the price, you just can’t beat it.

We booked this trip and after hearing so many people moan about how certain things weren’t included we behalf to worry. However they thankfully were proven wrong. Quads, camel ride and henna we’re all included. The bbq was lovely. The setting was breathtaking and the dunes were awesome. Our driver picked us up from the hotel and he was brilliant and dropped us off when the evening was over. Would highly recommend this trip.

This was an excellent first thing to do on my first time in Dubai. This is such a good value it is almost hard to believe. They picked me up at my hotel at 3:30 and returned me just before 10:00. The venture included driving out to the desert dunes, racing through the sand moguls, meeting up with others and putting on Arabian head dress. They stopped and took plenty of photos for those traveling alone like me. Headed back to camp for 4x4 rides around the sand track, then the camel ride, then the evening BBQ complete with entertainment and other vendors. Quite the full evening, very authentic cultural experience! I highly recommend this!

The desert safari was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. It was a perfect trip led by an amazing guide Mohammad who made the safari even more enjoyable and informative. The seven hours we spent at the safari seemed the perfect amount of time. From the sand bashing to camel ride to ATV ride to Dinner and Shows - all was very well done and very enjoyable for the entire family. We have two teenagers who thoroughly enjoyed the safari and called this the highlight of their visit to Dubai. We can't say enough good things about our driver/guide, Mohammad, who ensured that the trip was informative as well as fun. Overall, a 5 star trip which we would recommend to anyone visiting Dubai. Remember to ask for Mohammad as your driver.

Safari dessert you must try when you visit dubai.I enjoy 4x4 ride and the quad bike. Our tour guide khan is funny and impormative.. I think winter time is the best time to visit. Summer must be so hot in the dessert

The safari was beautiful, the ride in 4x4 has been exciting and fun. Our guide (Ghulam (??) was friendly and accurate, To ride the Quod was nice and picturesque walk on a camel at sunset. The shows during the dinner were really nice. Really good experience.

This tour was one of the best experiences I ever had with tours. Everything from pickup to camp to performances to drop was perfect! I would seriously recoorecommend Mohammad as the tour guide you should choose for Desert Safari.I was a bit skeptical before booking this tour as I had very less time in Dubai and wanted every bit of it to be perfect. I researched a lot for best tour and landed up booking with Sand Trax as they had highest rating / reviews on multiple sites. I am really happy that these reviews lived up to my expectations. I can’t write every tiny bit I enjoyed as that would take pages so would simply say loved everything in the tour and would highly recommend of taking this tour.

The company we were assigned was Sand Trax and they were absolutely phenomenal. Our guide was “Chocolate Khan” who was funny and kept us entertained throughout the entire experience. You can’t come to Dubai and not do this!

Great deal for the price. Awesome time in the desert and great experience. Very nice guide.

Great value for money !! absolutely incredible and I will do it again !! All advertised is true make sure that you are prepared for the adventure. It is advisable to carry cash on the trip with you to purchase some items that might add value to the experience. My personal highlight was the camel ride and the quadbikes. I got to take selfies with camels and rub their face that was unbelievable for me. If you are visiting Dubai, this should be in your bucket list. The dessert drive on its own is also amazing so just but the deal, you will be glad you did.

Amazing time, the 4x4 was really good and comfortable. Chocolate Khan is funny and he is very helpful. The Quad ride was amazing, it is just a circuit but you can get a good ride out of it. The Camel ride is more of a picture opportunity and not a proper ride. Maybe a minute at best. But worth it for the picture. BBQ dinner was good and nice. The tea, drinks were good. Nice relaxing place, with a prayer area. I would recommend.

What a crazy fun filled day. Easy pickup from the port, our driver and tour guide, Hassan. Great sense of humor, made us feel welcome and had us smiling as soon as we met. Little bit of a long ride in traffic out to the desert, but its worth it. Once in the desert is where the fun begins, they are trained dune drivers and they give you the full experience of playing up and down the dunes. Lots of good stops for picture taking. Then you reach the camp by sunset to partake in the evening's festivities and feast. Excellent desert experience. What a time to be alive.
