An excellent afternoon and evening that exceeded our expectations. Our driver was friendly and chatty and an excellent driver on the road and the dunes! They provided a booster seat for our 4 year old son. There was no queuing at the buffets and there was plenty of food, allowing the children to go back for seconds. All in all... More

Saw Arabian Adventures on the Emirates web site. Booked the Sundowner Desert safari for my wife, 6 yr old daughter and I. Booking was easy and driver turned up right on time in lobby of hotel in Dubai. We had a great time and would recommend this as a great multi-experience desert tour. Starts with about an hour drive in... More

This was the highlight of our Dubai visit. After trawling and checking out reviews, we chose to go with Arabian Adventures. Our guide was Emam. He picked us up around 3pm. He was quiet at first, but then started to share a lot of info once we started asking questions. Learned a lot about the culture of Dubai - from... More

I went on the Sundowner tour earlier this week and had a great time. Was picked up promptly from my hotel at 2.30pm (unfortunately we were 20 mins late leaving as had to wait for 2 other members of the group to arrive - not the tour company's fault though). Was driven out to the desert for some dune bashing,... More

Money well spent. Everything, from the dune driving, camel ride, chasing sunset in the dessert, hookah, belly dancing and Arabian dinner in the dessert- it was my first time to experience it all and it was such an amazing and memorable day. Money well spent would be the perfect way to describe it! The only thing i would do something... More

If I were only reviewing the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, this would be a 4 star review. Unfortunately this day consisted of quite a bit more because of this tour company. Most of which seemed like time fillers as opposed to must see attractions. I'll start with the good. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was absolutely incredible. It is an... More

This was also a great trip into the desert with some excellent 4wd driving up and over the sand dunes. This might not suit every passenger as one of the people with us had to be let out so they could settle their stomach. We all enjoyed it and I would highly recommend the driving. On the way out you... More

I would highly recommend this trip other than 2 little gripes - one was how organised the company is - we were trying and trying to get hold of our travel agent to confirm as we couldn't get hold of them - no-one told us they had a rep in the Hilton where we were staying! And just as well,... More

What a great tour company! We took the All Points East Tour. Our guide was first rate. She had some German speakers as well as some English speakers but I never found we did not get enough information. We had several stops, all the right amount of time.
