Can’t say enough good things. Not crowded at all. My 2 year old and I had a lot of fun. He enjoyed the camel ride, the ATVs, the food, the shows, taking pics in the native dress, getting a henna tattoo and the overall experience. He managed to stay awake for the entire evening. The tour company arranged a car seat for him and we had a great time. My son wants to go again!

Absolutely fantastic experience for the whole family. Plenty to do and see when you get back to camp after a thrilling time dune bashing. The food was amazing I would recommend upgrading to VIP so u sit on chairs and not cushions for those who struggle like my mum. You also get served your food instead of going to the buffet. The food was very good to say they have limited resources in the dessert. Even the toilets had a cleaner. Far cleaner than the toilets back home in Manchester airport.

This company is one of the best, we were picked up at the hotel in a 4wd Land Cruiser on time and driven out to the desert, we stopped along the way for a toilet break at a petrol station and the driver gave us plenty of time to grab a coffee and refreshments. When we got to the point where we left the road for the desert the driver stopped to deflate the tires and we saw literally hundreds of people getting off buses, our driver said they those people will not be coming to our campsite. At the camp we had the options to ride a quad bike, sandboard, hold a falcon and ride a camel. Before sunset we left camp and drove into the desert and did dune bashing, our driver was the best, it really is worth the experience. We stopped on a sand dune and watched the sunset over the desert before driving back to camp. There was only about 30-40 of us in camp although it could easily cater for double that figure. The entertainment good, the food was good and plentiful. At the end of the night it was like a traffic jam trying to leave the desert but again our driver left the road took a dash across the desert and then we went a backway and got back to our hotel in very good time. It was a great afternoon/evening.

We really enjoyed this half day tour in the desert. The pick up was right in time, the communication with the admin staff was smooth, the tour itself was great, without any boring part. In every minute there were some happenings, what we appreciated a lot. The dune bashing was not that extreme, so there is no need to be scared about this :) The sunset was amazing from the desert. The evening shows were superb and really unique, and the food was delicious! All the staff were great, friendly and helpful. Special thanks for our tour guide, Zahir, he was really nice and took a lot of great pictures about us :D I would participate on this tour again, highly recommended!

Our driver, Abdul, was very friendly and was excellent at the dunes bashing. He took us on some high dunes and it was really exciting. Thank you for this Abdul. He also helped us with some nice photos. At the camp, we did a short camel ride and enjoyed a good laugh with the other sharing guests. We also had some photos with the falcon for a minimal cost. The sandboarding and henna were free of charge. The food was nice and the variety caters for every taste. The shows presented were also entertaining. An evening well spent in the UAE desert.

Easy booking, good pickup coordination, a perfect afternoon/evening excursion and watching the sunset. Our driver/tourguide (Sahdi) was awesome, funny and attentive. He is a highly qualified sand dune 4x4 driver and the ride was a blast! The BBQ main course is great, though appetizer was ok. The alcohol at the tents is little pricy but everything else is free. I highly recommend this trip.

Our guide Ali was very knowledgeable and well organized. Dune bashing was unique and heart-pounding. Shows and camel riding were excellent. Activities in ABC Dersert Camp could be organized better, too much idle time between shows and BBQ.

I was excited for this tour but never imagined it would be such a highlight of a trip. The Arabian Desert is such a foreign landscape to me it was incredible just being there. Dune bashing was such an exhilarating experience... and riding a camel turned out to be a must do! I will say there was a bit of a lull between the daytime/sunset activities and the dinner program. There was about 60 minutes with not much going on. Dinner and the shows were excellent and we were still home before 10pm.

The whole experience was great! The food was really good (even what I was not sure of LOL). Our driver was really cool and the desert and camel ride was incredible. The entertainment was great but sitting on my bottom was painful LOL I was totally satisfied with the trip.

It was a great experience from start to finish. They even pick you up from the hotel and the whole experience is amazing. This one is not to miss out. They make it safe safe while fun.

You have to try this experience out. Dune bashing is a must experience when in Dubai. Wilson our driver was the most accommodating for me and my family of 7, highly recommend him as a guide. The dinner was ok, we upgraded to VIP but ended up being further from the entertainment during dinner which caused less interaction.

This was a great excursion. They were efficient in communicating the pickup times via What’s app in the days before the excursion. The pickup was on time and we only made one other pickup and then started the tour so it was very efficient. We made one stop for bathrooms where there was the option to ride an ATV Quad bike (we did not do that but it was a convenient bathroom break anyway.) Then the driver let air out of the tires to enable the ride and we began the ride through the desert from there. It was lots of fun with spins around the sand and two stops for photos, the second one being for great sunset photos over the desert. Then we arrived at the desert camp where we were taken to the VIP seating which we had upgraded to on the What’s App the day before . I recommend the upgrade as it’s only $10 per person but the seats are much more comfortable (anyone who has a bad back like me should definitely do the upgrade, as the regular seating is on cushions around tables around the stage but those cushions are not chairs and thus don’t have anything to support your back, whereas the VIP seats were really comfortable cushioned chairs with cushioned backs around tables on a raised platform just above the standard seats and overlooking the stage. Also the VIP seats got dinner and drinks served right to your table rather than needing to walk to the buffet yourself. After being seated we had the option to do the camel ride and we did that (it was free ) which was fun. Then we went back to our table and they began the first two shows. The spinning whirling dirvish dancer was good and the fire dancer was an amazing show and great fun. Then they brought us dinner and after dinner was the belly dance show which was really great and exotic too. It was also nice that since this camp is exclusive to their passengers, it was limited to around 50 people so it was not as crowded as I have heard many others that share camps become. It was also nice that we were not hassled by anyone trying to sell us anything like I had read many reviews of other camps. They did have one booth you could barter to buy local things and we did barter to buy two pillow covers with embroidered camels that we could take home to put on couch pillows at home but it was just nice that it was our choice to visit that booth rather than having anyone approaching us to hawk their stuff. All together I would definitely suggest this tour for a fun, no hassle desert and show experience

Me n my wife enjoyed the trip. The driver sayif was interactive n gave us a clear explanations of the experience. From the quad bike rides, 4X4 skiing in the desert and to the VIP ($10pp) at the camp was the top of the experience. We really enjoyed the experience and would be returning to ABC tours next time we visit. This company practice what they preach.

I had absolutely amazing experience going on this attraction. Mainly because of the tour guide, Sanjay. His expertise and professionalism made it a memorable experience for us all. He also gave a personal touch which made it very special for me. He happened to know it was my birthday, and he gave a surprise for me by informing this to the organizer at the Camp whom announced and asked everyone sang a Happy Birthday song to me. Sanjay also such an excellent driver maneuvering in the Dunne bash. He picked perfect spots for photos and was a great photographer too. Sanjay ensured we did all the experience offered and explained in great details of the rundown. He made the day ran smoothly. Thank you so much!
