Absolutely awful and waste of money

we asked if the experience was with the sun and It wasn't. The desert was full of bush, it was not the desert image you think. The driver was good.

Magical Desert
This place was absolutely magical at night. We were able to ride the camels and horses, played with the bird wearing a hat and got henna tattoo which was beautiful as well. The dinner was different but good. The sunset was the BEST along with the view of the arena. They do have a couple of shops to purchase collectibles, and pictures that they take of you doing the various activities. All in all I would love to return again and re-experience it all over.

Great experience
We did this excursion whilst staying in Dubai for part of our honeymoon.

The desert and trip itself was fantastic and a great experience. My only gripe was the SUV being described as ‘luxury’ and it couldn’t have been more wrong. The A/C was so poor, it was 37c and I felt like I was in a greenhouse. Top tip, don’t sit in the 2 seats at the back. These were so cramped and it just made it worse.

That said, the dune driving was brilliant, our driver was clearly very experienced and this paid off in our enjoyment. You then get taken to a ‘camp’ where you’re served local cuisine and watch a few dances. Honestly, that’s not my kind of thing and find it quite cringey. There is also the option of a camel ride, seemed pretty pointless as you just go around in a circle. I actually felt quite sorry for the camels , one clearly didn’t want to do it but was made too.

Would i do it again? Probably not. Would I recommend it? Definitely.

Not what I we expected !
Mar 2018 • Couples
We signed up for this when booking the holiday with Voyage Privé, the description & information given was very limited & we definitely should have looked into it ! We were led to believe it was night in the desert and a meal. We knew nothing of the 4x4 Camels
It taking 6 hours ! We were supposed to be picked up at 2.30pm which we were not happy about, but were left waiting for nearly an hour ! We hated it & would never have
booked it had we known what the actual trip was all about ! It was not worth the money.

Fab on the whole but....
We loved our trip with alpha tours. Lovely guide, clean comfy truck and amazing desert dune bashing. Only disappointment was the camel ride which consisted literally of getting on a camel, turning around a small circle for a photo and getting off again! We could have loved to have a longer walk. Food and show was good and it was great to show our kids (7&8yrs) that there is more to Dubai than shopping malls and water parks! My youngest did feel a bit sick on the dune bashing but driver just slowed down to accommodate this and she survived and we enjoyed!

Desert Experience was great. Started with an SUV ride through the desert - great pictures, saw some wild camels. Ended with dinner and show in the desert, with shops and hookah. Definitely recommend.

Wish I hadn't gone
Mar 2018 • Couples
Crammed in the back of a 4x4- I mean crammed in the back seats that are behind the back seats- the ones in the boot with small windows and little legroom. No water on hand in the 40 degree desert heat where we waited for 45 mins for the other cars to turn up- without being explained by the driver. Very violent 4x4 drive across dunes which were more about drivers showing off to other drivers than anything- giving some nice bruises and banged heads on the roll bars in the cramped back of the 4x4. Bedouin camp was ok, had better experience of something similar in Sharm to be honest. no info from driver on where or what time were leaving- found out details from others on the trip. Drive back to road without any aircon- excuse given that the tyres were low for the desert and they needed to power to keep traction- this despite it being at night and much cooler, and the road was a dirt track rather than dunes and so not arduous terrain and the aircon was fine for the violent dune driving earlier. Motorway back to Dubai was taken at speed with some dangerous driving with other road users (overtaking on the wrong side and braking hard)- Relieved to make it back to the hotel in one piece and get out of the cramped back of the 4x4. Steer clear of this.
