  • The driver Ali was just awesome. He was funny, knowledgeable, very experienced in his driving and so much fun. He definitely made the trip for what it was. The camel ride was 20m so a little bit of a joke really. The food was great and the dances were also quite humorous not really doing much.
  • It was a very good experience in all aspects. But the dune ride was something awesome. Entertainment and food first class. Organisation spot on. Guide brilliant
  • Shan was excellent in all aspects of the outing. He was very well versed and informative, answering any and every question we had. He was energetic and very bubbly, he kept my 3 year old son entertained to a point that he still mentions Shan when he talks about the outing. He was patient with my elderly parents and never once seemed pushy. He always kept the party in mind and consistently enquired if each and every one of us was comfortable. To top this epic excursion of, Shan also took some amazing pictures of us all. I will definitely recommend Shan to anyone interested in a fun, informative overall exhilarating experience. Would add another 5 stars if I could.
  • WOW what an amazing experience to have shared with my husband, mum and my son. Our tour guide Sharaf really was fantastic. I would highly recommend this trip. You won’t be disappointed… if I’m lucky enough to come back I would definitely do it again.
  • it was a great trip. our driver/ guide M. Sakr did an excellent job. Every friendly helpful tour guide. Camp site was clean and the food was good. And the shows enjoyed every moment of it.
  • We had the best time on this tour. Osama was an amazing tour guide from hotel pick up to drop off. So many different things to do. He got us to the sunset at the perfect time. Plus we learned about the culture as well.
  • This excursion was by far one of the most exciting excursions I've been on. It was certainly the highlight of my trip to Dubai. Our guide, Yasir, was so amazing. He was kind, knowledgable, and so funny. He made sure we had the most incredible time. He also was super helpful with taking great pictures of our group. The four wheelers were so much fun, Yasir was a wonderful driver on the sand dunes. Sand surfing was a blast! My favorite part was riding the camels. The food at the bbq was delicious! I highly recommend and will book this excursion again next time I travel to Dubai! Thank you Yasir!!
  • Just fabulous! I’m always apprehensive on these tourist trips but I have to say it was a wonderful trip. The food was also amazing -well done team. I can highly recommend
  • This was an amazing day! Probably my favourite experience in Dubai! Our guide Lachen really went above and beyond to make sure everyone had a wonderful time. The photos he took of us in the desert are beautiful and we will treasure them! The evening at the camp was fun and the food was great. Cannot recommend this trip more it really was terrific!
  • Everything was amazing fully recommended. Y’all should try it. My daughter and I really enjoyed it. Everything was great 🫶
  • We enjoyed the whole Safari trip .Our tour guide M.Sakr was very entertaining and friendly.We had an amazing time in desert .He took us lots of photos .Dont miss the Buggy ride.Highly Recommended !!!
  • Great experience! Very well organized tour. Enjoyed every minute of our trip. Sandboarding, safari thru the desert, dinner and dancing performances in the desert camp… Everything was WOW! This is the must to do at least once if you’re visiting Dubai!
  • From start to finish, our Dubai Desert Safari was an absolute delight. The guide's punctual pick-up and drop-off ensured a hassle-free experience. Activities were efficiently organized, allowing us to savor each moment without feeling rushed. The dune bashing, expertly handled by our excellent driver, was a thrilling highlight. This tour strikes the perfect balance between excitement and relaxation, making it a must-try for anyone visiting Dubai. Highly recommended!
  • The Best Ever experience in my life. Mohamed Sakr (M Sakr) was our guide for the day. He is undoubtedly the best, in terms of his professionalism, he ensures that we have an amazing experience. His expertise in Dune Bashing is totally worth it. We were picked up from Dubai Marina area on time, he drove us all the way to the Buggy area with some great Arabic music, giving so much information about the areas we passed through, he insisted on taking the Buggy ride, we had planned to skip initially. At the Buggy area, we got dressed up in our Arabic costume, had our refreshments. Buggy ride was adventurous, the deserts were fully to ourselves and the guide took us some lovely photos and videos of us while driving along with us. We had skipped it initially, but as we saw people enjoying it, we took our buggy too. Definitely NOT TO MISS. We were served with dates, tea and water all throughout the day. Later Sakr took us to Dune Bashing with sunset views. The experience was very different and thrilling. Hats off to his driving skills, ^ ^ he ensured our safety to the fullest while giving us some adrenaline rush!!! And then we went on some Sand boarding, sunset view photos and headed to Al Khayma Camps for the late evening and dinner. The Sunset in the desert was alluring. The Camel Safari ( we were allowed for multiple times) was so pleasing, though it’s a short ride, we can take it as many times as we want. Do not forget to feed the camels, they were so cute. For the dinner we were served with 3 cuisine meals, Arabian, Moroccan and Egyptian. Enjoyed them to bits. Then the BBQs ^_^. There were some Vegetarian options too. The Fire show, Dance performances were awesome while we were enjoying the post dinner feels with some chillers. Also had our Arabic henna done, photos with Falcons, some interesting souvenir shopping. Also tried Shisha. We also had our photographs taken by our guide and volunteers at OCEANAIR. And we were happily dropped back to our pick up locations safely. This experience is the most recommended. I’m vouching for this, after checking with a few of my friends who visited around the same time, and I’m extremely grateful for this. Thank you OCEANAIR and Mohamed Sakr 5 ⭐️ I wish you all enjoy a stupendous time at Desert Safari with OCEANAIR ! Habibi, enjoy Dubai with OCEANAIR and M Sakr !
  • Dune bashing was the best adrenaline filled experience! Food at Al Khayma was delicious. The driver was fantastic and very personable. Sand boarding was a new experience. Camel ride was fun but short. Well worth the money.

Our family was always their number one priority to see the best of the best and made sure we had the opportunity to do everything! I would highly recommend them for anyone interested in taking this tour.
  • Iltaf was amazing and experienced at what he does. He made the trip seamless and enjoyable. Would do it again.
