Important InfoInfo

Meet your guide at your central Dubai hotel and board a comfortable air-conditioned 4x4. On entering the desert, your guide deflates your tires and takes you on a roller coaster ride as you crash through the dunes in your off-road vehicle.
Stop at a camel farm to learn about the ‘Ships of the Desert’ then watch a fascinating Falcon show and interact with the falconer. A spectacular sunset welcomes you at our traditional Arabian Campsite with ‘Gahwa’ Arabic coffee and local dates.
Experience a brief camel ride, try sand boarding and get a henna tattoo then relax with a Shisha water-pipe. Whet your appetite with a Shawarma or Falafil sandwich, both popular local snacks before settling in to watch the evening's live entertainment. A mesmerizing Tanoura traditional folk dance is followed by an enthralling fire blower show. Take a break and enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner. Later a tantalizing belly dance performed under the starlit sky brings the evening to a close. Your tour then finishes with a drop-off at your Dubai hotel.
Upgrade to an Exclusive Dubai Desert Safari by enjoying the delicious barbecue dinner at your exclusive table with a bottle of sparkling wine and fruit basket.

Our tour was arranged by Orient Tours and it was amazing inclusive of everything that was mentioned in the description. We were picked up from our hotel approximately within 20 minutes from the specified time. Then we were taken outside the city for Dune bashing which was too much of fun for me and my family. Following that we went to the campsite for other events and buffet. Thanks for arranging such a wonderful event.

Everithing has bean great, amazing place, excellent and sociable driver and guide. We enjoyed sharing the car with a couple from Guadalupe, we spoke a lot and we get easily friendly with each other. The shows after dinner was very nice, as much as the food which was very delicious. I only suggest to not buy in the little suq they reproduce in the desert because te prices are way more high that in the suq in Deira.

The whole process was seamless. We were picked up on time by our great guide Asif and he was nothing but helpful and pleasant the whole time. He made sure we knew what was happening and was happy to answer any questions we had. He was great fun and his main concern as that we had fun. The camp was pleasant and it was a bonus that we had the same transport throughout to each location. The food and entertainment were as expected and we had a lovely relaxed evening. Thank you!

Great desert experience. Wild drive through the sand (got even a bit car sick). Dinner was a bit staged, nevertheless, food was fresh and nice. A real good opportunity to see something else than shopping malls and buildings.

Great experience all around. From pick up and drop off to the front door of our hotel and everything in between. Our driver deserves special mention..he was absolutely amazing and had years of experience so felt very safe. He was very personable and knowledgable about the country itself and was great to point out extra info along the way. Would highly recommend!

This was an amazing evening. Orient tours knows how to treat their guest! They picked us up right outside hotel near Dubai airport which was perfect! Our guide and the team for the evening was so much fun and made sure we had plenty of time to enjoy everything. The dune bashing was a blast - yup, I did scream a few times whipping around in the sand. We visited a camel farm and leaned about the one vs two humps, learned about the national bird of the UAE even though they are not native, rode a camel (not long enough), sand boarded, received a henna tattoo, the shows were very entertaining – the belly dancer was stunning – Disney and Busch Gardens has nothing compared to this and the dinner was fabulous. If we ever have a chance to return to Dubai, this will be the first thing we schedule it was so much fun!

The tour gave us a brief insight into Dubai culture and scenery. As well, we had the thrill of the Dune bashing, falcon mastery, camel riding and live entertainment during dinner which was a great buffet. The tour ran smoothly and we were looked after all the way.

This turned out to be our highlight of our trip to Dubai and I would HIGHLY recommend it to everyone. Our driver picked us up as scheduled and clearly explained all of the activities for the day. Once we got to the desert and began the dune bashing at no time did we question our safety. It was such a fun and amazing experience. We were able to visit a camel farm and view a falconry demonstration on the way to the village. Once there we were able to take a camel ride and try sandboarding, as well as Shisha and Mendhi before being fed a wonderful dinner all while being entertained by dancers and a fire dancer/breather. At the end of the evening our driver dropped us off right back at our hotel.
