“Good afternoon desert tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

My wife and I did an evening desert door and BBQ dinner.

Pick up from out hotel was prompt, and the 6 person LandCruiser was clean, spacious and well maintained. The tour involved 35 similar vehicles driving off road across the dunes. Hot, fun, but at all times it felt safe.

We broke for sunset by the roadside before moving on to a desert camp for dinner.

At this point, I would have given the tour 5 out of 5, and been happy with the price. The dinner did not live up to the standards enjoyed in the rest of the tour. The drivers were responsible for the BBQ, so cooking did not start until 200+ guests had been delivered to their tables. As a result, there was a wait of over an hour as darkness fell.

A couple of local dancers entertained for around 30 minutes before and after dinner.

Dinner took over 2.5 hours, and most guests were keen to leave far earlier.

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

I went on both the Dubai city tour and the 1001 thrill adventure with planet tours whilst in Dubai. The city tour was very good showing you all of the sites and the tour guide was very knowledgable both about the sites and Dubai in general.

The 1001 thrill adventure consisted of a drive through the desert in a 4x4, a camel ride, sand boarding and quad biking. It worked out around £60 for about 5 hours and was definitely worth the money.

“Too much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We did the afternoon/evening desert tour. What a hoot! Wonderful adventure through the dunes - very comfortable with the driver - could trust him easily. He knew what he was doing.
The camp with dinner was well organized. All the "local" stuff to do and see - you can tick a lot off your list with this tour. Good value for what is included.
