Had a morning tour with Unni, picked us up from our Abu Dhabi hotel on time and with one other party drove into the desert (about 45 mins). The dune bashing was great fun and whilst scary, Unni's driving was very skilled.
Had about 15 mins up and down various dunes before stopping for photos. Then another 5-10 mins to the camp where we rode a camel for a few minutes and then tried sand surfing (with limited success due to our own balancing skills!) Was a perfect taste of adventure in the desert and we had a great time!

Amazing time:
Aris was on time to pick us up at the hotel and spoke to us on the short (50 minute) car ride about the history of Abu Dhabi. We did some dune buggying in the Land Rover to get our hearts racing and then he setup a perfect viewpoint for the sunrise with coffee and dates.
He then was a professional photographer for my wife and I, taking well over 150 photos of the beautiful sunrise. Next we dune buggied over to meet the camel and ride him around for a short time. We finally finished photos and had a bathroom break and drink. It was a great experience and 100% would recommend.

We were met by our very nice driver Faizy and was driven out to the Desert. WOW, what a ride, this guy could really handle the car and never once did we feel unsafe. What a fantastic experience. We stopped in the desert where Faizy took lots of terrific photos for us, he was really creative with the a panoramic picture where we posed twice in the same picture!At no time did he rush us, he was really good. Then on for the camel ride where again he stopped to show us wild camels on route. Once again he took our phones and took loads of pictures. He then helped us to put on the local clothing and then more pictures before refreshments and then a drive back to the ship. It was a very early start but what a fabulous morning with a great driver. If you get the chance to do this then do, you won’t regret it

It was a so wonderful, unforgettable trip. We was very excited about out our driver, Nadeen. On the way to the desert told us a lot of interesting facts about the history etc. In the desert he drives excellent, it was a pleasure for my wife and me to see, how he mastered all the difficulties in the parcour. In my opinion he is one of the best driver and everybody can be in trust with him in the car. There was a nice Foto point in the desert. Nadeen helps us to find good positions and made great fotos of us. Finally, in the evening there was a traditional dinner and the possibility for a lot of different activities in the desert. Camel riding, skating etc. The final of this very good activity was dance performances. We both was more than happy and satisfied. We everybody recommend this tour.

The tour was great. We spent a really nice morning in the desert. Faizy was taking photos for us all the time so we could enjoy the sunrise and the desert in general. I can recommend doing this tour to everyone who wants to see the desert but maybe not spend a whole day there.

We visited the desert of Abu Dhabi, where we got acquainted with the local nature, customs and traditions. And I want to say, we returned from there charged with unrealistic energy and are set to continue to study this incredible Emirate further. In addition to all, I want to thank @iranirockz who controlled not only the car, but also had a fun evening, showed the beauty of Abu Dhabi, made incredibly cool photos that you are looking at now. Those who plan to come here, now you know who to contact @iranirockz
I want to come back here again and again 🙏🏻

Amazing and unforgettable experience! We had high expectations for this one, and it ended up being even better than what we'd figured. Our Marshall, Razak, was fantastic; not only sliding through the dunes like a pro, but also choosing an amazing spot to see the sunrise. Plus, he's a hell of a photographer! Don't hesitate to book this experience with Emirates Tours and Safaris, you won't be disappointed.

We had an overnight layover in Abu Dhabi from 10PM until 11AM the next morning. We didn’t want to waste the long layover so we booked a hotel near the airport and arrange the tour! It was amazing Aris drove around the sand dunes and parked for the sunrise. The sunrise was stunning and Aris was an amazing guide and took so many photos of us. We also got to feed the camels and try sand boarding. I definitely recommend this tour!
