  • Our group of people were picked up by our fantastic guide at the hotel. Our thoughts about the tour were constantly met beyond expectations, and the service we received was excellent. I urge anyone who is in Dubai to do this immediately!
  • The tour guide Ali is professional and responsible. He explained the journey very clearly and is considerate. The safari experience is exiting and worth trying. Ali is a good driver balancing the enjoyment and safety well. The campsite gave a relatively comfortable environment for rest and experiencing activities such as camel riding and watching dance show. You can have enough time to takes photo throughout the trip too. The guide and other staff are helpful and nice to help you with photography. The BBQ dinner is also fine.
  • It was a really good experience, with our guide SHAN, and the whole trip was amazing. My favourite part of the day, the sand dunes, camel riding and shisha. It was an unforgettable experience.
  • It's been a great tour with Baba who was our driver and the tour guide. Good value for money. Nice views, camels and great experience with quads. Everything was great and according to the description!
  • Nasser …the excellent guide … u brought us the memorable experience …. Highly recommended expedition
  • It was amazing ! Thanks to our Gide Ahmad. We recommande to take the option with two place buggy. The diner in desert was also great. We recommend it!
  • Exceptional! What an amazing experience! Our guide Saaj was phenomenal and so informative. The activities, experiences and food was absolutely everything. We spent 7 hours in the desert and it felt like 30 mins. The desert safari was the highlight of my trip.
  • It was an awesome experience today with our Guide ARAFA and the whole journey was very good. Al Khayma Camp we liked the most during the trip and must for Go Place. Thank You Ocean Travels for the wonderful trip.
  • Shan was our guide and I recommend asking for him when you go. He made the trip very entertaining and was very informative. We saw so much, we did so much, and we learned along the way.
  • We had a very nice day with Sarwar, our guide. He knows like everything about Dubai and the activities and is very easy to chat with. Thx a lot!
  • I like that tour guide Mr. Mohamed Sakr pick us on-time, always make sure that group are always having a good time, funny guy that makes our tour even happier. He was also an Excellent driver on the sand dunes taking good photos which is nice when traveling solo. This is a must do in dubai, dessert life and excellent food.
  • Our driver was very skilled, making the "safari" drive in the dunes quite fun. The option with the quad was fun, though I have to say we were there super early so we were the first ones on the circuit. Later on it was very crowded. The camel ride is like 50 meters long, I personally don't think it is worth doing. The sandboarding was a lot of fun, but getting up the dunes in the sun is quite tiring, so in the end most people I saw on the tour did it 2 or 3 times max. All in all its a good option to "get a taste" of all the activities. I read other reviews for tours that are 8 hours saying they have a lot of dead time in between activities, abd I think this 1/2 day tour has an advantage as the dead times are not so long.
  • the trip to the desert was an incredible experience, especially the attitude of our guide Fayyaz and his excellent skills when driving on the dunes, we also enjoyed our stay at the camp very much :)
  • Nice trip! Our guide „Shan“ was a special highlight for me. So friendly and honest. He‘s doing this since 1994 and knows how things are running in Dubai. He‘s a „crazy one“ and that‘s fun!
  • We had a wonderful day. The food and activities were amazing. Very well organised and our driver was friendly
  • Mohamed was the best guide! His energy is contagious and he is very good about catering to our specific requests. We definitely had the best guide out there. Highly recommend the whole experience, and ask for Mohamed!
  • Had an amazing time riding buggies, dune bombing, camel riding and with the awesome food and performances at the camp! Got some incredible pics as well! Thanks to Mohamed for showing us an awesome time!
  • What an experience! Shan showed us a great day in the desert that will be long remembered. Highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience the Dubai desert
  • The folks there were nice, but the booking agent said that I could leave early, just to ask the guide. When I asked the guide, his response was that it was not possible. I had to take a taxi back which cost 200 AED. I did not get to enjoy the dune surfing, the BBQ or many on the activities. For $95 USD, it was not even close to worth it. Be careful when you book
  • Such a great experience with the best advisor Shan , excellent food and service , do not hesitate to explore more about the red dunes , its worth every moment .
  • Bear tour ever! This by far is the best! Had so much fun that the time flew by and didn't realize you've been there for hours. So many different things to do. Akku was our guide and was phenomenal. Very patient and helpful. Was by our side the entire time for any needs and just an all around sweet guy!!! It was so fun I would do it all over again.
  • Truly an awesome tour. Would do this again. Everything from the pick up to drop off and everything in between is considered. Our guide Muhammed Safeer was excellent. So gracious and helpful. Took care of everyone the whole tour, made sure we got every single experience to the fullest and took wonderful photos of everyone. This tour has so much in it, it feels like it just keeps coming and coming, and everything was excellent. I did this tour alone, but Safeer made sure everyone got along, talked about the history and culture and kept everyone safe and happy. Fully recommend.
  • SHAN was an amazing guide who answered all and every question we had about Dubai and we had a great trip visiting the best views.
  • ARAFA was too good. He explained a lot about Dubai on our way. He was very courteous and he made sure we were comfortable. Our family enjoyed the safari so much. It was thrilling and fun filled. Kids really loved it. My 6 year old daughter liked the camel feed and ride. Food was fabulous and the service was impeccable. Overall rating 5/5.
