We booked our sandriders trip through the Arabian adventures rep in our hotel (JZS), and he couldn't have been more helpful. We were picked up in a private taxi in the afternoon, taken out to the desert and then spent an hour in the dune buggies. Amazing fun spotting camels and chasing gazelles, topped off by how safe it felt... More

This is a great tour. We were collected from our hotel with 4 others, then travelled along the highway to out of town. Our driver provided some information on sights along the way. After letting some air out of the tyres we ventured into the desert. Firstly we stopped to watch a Falcon show, then the sand dune excitement began.... More

Arabian Adventures collect you from your own hotel (a big bonus not having to travel to a central meeting point) at around 4:30pm in a 4x4 vehicle and this is your car for the duration of the trip… in the car there is a driver and seating for up to 6 people – there were already 4 in the car...

4 of us went on this tour. Our guide was terrible. We meet in in our hotel lobby, he pointed our name out on his list mumbled something and we followed him to the car. His car smelled strongly of cigarette smoke plus the seats were split and cracked. But really the disappointing thing was his mood. He did not... More

We did the Arabian adventures sundowner. All I can say: It was fun! It is an expensive trip, but totally worth the money. From the moment they pick you up in the hotel with a nice big modern 4x4 the fun starts. First there is a falcon demonstration, then they will take you on a dune bashing tour ( big... More

I booked the Sand dune tour with this company. I got picked up from my friends house where I was staying, I was the first pick up and then we drove around Dubai for over an hour picking other people up then had a 40min drive out to the desert. The driver was an absolute maniac, swerving in and out... More

This tour was a little disappointing. The top attraction of the tour in my opinion is the mosque, but at the end, we had 30 minutes to have a quick look at it and come back to the bus. Stop at Formula 1 circuit was ok, but all the others were not worth at all.

I stayed with my family (me, wife and two boys 3 an 5 years old) 11 days at the Kempinski in Ajman in April. First we tried to book tours through the tour desk at the hotel but figured out that this was specialized on the many Russian guests. So I contacted the reception desk of the hotel which recommended... More
