Got picked up from the motel in a nice 4WD. There were two of us and we joined four others who were picked up from another motel, plus the driver, making 7 in the car. It was about an hours drive out into the desert where our first stop was a falcon show, which was informative and didn't last long,but... More

We did the Safari in April and had an awesome night. This will be a special memory. The 4 wheel drive over the dunes is not overly exciting - we own 4 wheel drives and it is pretty tame - but still cool to see the dunes etc. The sunset, the camel ride, the whole elaborate campsite and the dinner...

I have used this company twice when flying into Dubai for a few days stop over when returning to Australia from the UK. Both occassions the airport transfers were pre booked by my travel agent. It is so relieving to walk off thebplane and have someone ready to meet you and explain where to go and what to do. Then... More

This lasted approx 3-4 hours which most of it was travelling from Dubai. We did not want to do the evening option as we did something similar on a trip in Egypt and just wanted a taster.The driver was slightly late picking us up and did not say too much during the trip but the driving over the dunes was...

This was a GREAT experience! They met us at the pier to pick us up (we did this thru a shore excursion) then drove us out to the desert where we were driven thru the sand up and down the dunes. Was like a roller coaster ride. When we arrived at the camp for dinner, beer and wine were included.... More

We undertook two different tours with this company, 'The City of Merchants tour' and the 'Sundowner Safari'. Firstly, the City of Merchants tour. The timing was fine except that we received notice that the pick up time had changed. We were driven to a vacant building site and our driver did not inform us about anything. We did not get...

However on going through this post, I can see that your expectations of the Arabian Adventures tours are not aligned with what we actually offer on these excursions. The City... More

My husband and I visited Dubai as the first stop on our honeymoon. We only had 2 nights so wanted to make the most of it. The Sundowner Safari (Arabian Adventures) was brilliant! We had Waseem as our guide. We were picked up from our hotel and driven out to a conservation park where our evening began. It started with... More

I would describe this experience as a Commercial Desert Bedouin Village Experience, not to be missed. From the driving up sand dunes to riding a camel, having henna drawn on you to a belly dancer performing, trying Shisha, having an enormous meal and plenty of beverages under the stars in a desert, what else could you ask for.
