        Safari with Asif
        Asif was very fun and accommodating the dune driving was top notch and the boarding was great! The dinner and show after the safari is a lot of fun and everything is taken care of. Make sure to bring cash incase you'd like to tip after.

        A fun family day on a Desert Safari
        My extended family and I had a lovely day out with Essa from Ammar Tours for Dune Bashing, camel rides and dinner in a desert camp. It was a full-on experience that was good value for money. Essa, our guide, was sensitive to the younger and older members of our party, which ensured everyone had a nice time. The desert safari was an adventure all in our family will remember for a long time. Some in our group took advantage of the optional quad bike riding. We have numerous memories and photos as souvenirs and appreciate the fun Essa helped us to have in the wild desert near Dubai.

        Asif was a great guide. Everything was perfect, and we really enjoy that. The best for me was driving in the dessert. Don’t worry, Asif is a very good driver, it’s a bit terrifying but finally a great experience!

I highly recommend him for anyone who wants to have a great experience. Thank you once again for showing us a great time. We will be back soon for another great adventure ❤️

Muhammad was excellent and extremely helpful thoughout the day and made sure the experience was as good as it could possibly be. A must do in Dubai!

      Very well conducted tour. Mr. Mohsin our guide was rxtremely patient and experienced. This tour starts with a pick up and then moves on to the quad biking area. There is an option to pre book the quad bike ride or you may go there and purchase the ride. There are 2 types of quad bikes - single and double where another person can sit on the pillion rider seat. In this section you can also purchase the Arabic scarves and headdress. The scarves are for 30 AED. Post this you are taken for the dune bashing which is like a natural rollercoaster ride and is darn fun. They take you to a point in the desert where you can do sandblasting and taking some amazing pictures in the setting sun. Post this you are taken to the village where there dinner and shows like fire show, sufi dance show and belly dance show. The dinner food is really good. Some great dishes were the Barbecue Fish, mandi rice and the rice pudding in dessert. The tour ends with the belly dance show after which you dropped back to your pick up point. Overall an amazing desert safari experience. A must try for tourists.

      Our Desert Safari was on the 30th June 2022 picked up 3:15pm by Shahzaid Muhammad and Zahid, We had 2 cars as we were a group of 9 and each guides was smashing, well informed took us past the royal palace, gov buildings, Dubai frame and also looked after us really well, they were both brilliant couldn't praise them enough, as my son was getting motion sickness on the dunes and Zahid had to stop several times to let him get better before moving on, also when we had arrived at the camp we were directed to our tables and just before the sun went down he lead us quickly to get some sunset shots which he did perfectly, next he lead us to the camel rides which the children really enjoyed before leading us back to our seats and informing us how the entertainment was scheduled. even when we were looking at the good and haggling he would ask how much we paid to see if we been had, drive home was smooth sailing as he dropped us off at the hotels it was time to say good bye. if i was to recommend any guide these 2 will be first choice definitely.

      Absolutely brilliant experience with a fantastic Guide named Matty. He looked after us so well during the trip and ensured we were safe at all times. He also told us about the area and the culture which was very interesting. My teenagers loved the quad biking experience and the whole family got involved. Next Matty took us to the sand dunes for some fun in the 4x4. He was a superb driver and we felt safe at all times. He took some amazing photos of the family that we will treasure. Next was the sand boarding and again Matty was fantastic at instructing us. Then we saw the sun set over the dunes which is not to be missed. Finally a dinner and a dance show and again Matty was so attentive in making sure everyone in our party was happy. I would highly recommend the tour and hope you get Matty as your guide as he definitely made the experience more enjoyable. He looked after my family so we’ll and provided us with such happy memories of Dubai.

      There’s no words to describe the tour, starting from the communications with Abdul, to the rest of the trip, the rides, the shows etc,but most definitely the star of the tour was our guide Abdul, what a great asset for the tour company, he’s knowledgeable, polite, respectful and his attention to the most minimum details is unbelievable, he’s everywhere! Every single minute of the almost 6 hours he was making sure we have everything we needed, water etc. making sure we were comfortable and safe, he made us feel like royalty. I highly recommend this tour and you’re booking request Abdul as your guide.

      The Matti-class delivered by Matti is the best in Dubai when it comes to trips with guides, from the begging to the end.

      We saw a lot of different groups driving together and getting the classic dessert experience, but our guide Matti went over all expectations and gave us something to remember for life. He picked us up earlier than we expected and that ended up giving us space to explore and enjoy every stop on the trip without having to share the different stops with huge crowds. He was our professional camera man and he’s personality was just amazing. I will recommend him for everybody me and my group will never forget Matti - the best man in Dubai, the matti-class is the best class!!!

      We differently are going to pick him for all other trips in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi

      It was great, our driver (Hanif) was awesome. He guided us well, and was so good overall, he is one of the best guides I have ever had on any holiday totally recommend. The food was alright and the entertainment was good. The camel ride was shorter than expected however it was still fun. The quad biking was really fun and the highlight of the trip, however we paid upfront as we didn’t do it online and when we went to pay the guy who we owe the money to told us for one bike (2 people) was 250 AED, but when we went to pay on card he put the price up to 265 AED ( we paid one cash (250 AED) and one card which turned to 265AED. The worst thing about the trip was once again being taken advantage off. I was disappointed at the fact the person who was selling the hashish pipes for usage didn’t tell us some of the flavours we had to pay for, as it was apart of the package when we paid for the trip. He told us to pick whatever flavour we like, and when we went to leave he told us we had to pay because that specific flavour wasn’t apart of our package. It was only 50-60AED, but it’s not about the price. I wouldn’t of minded tipping him. It’s the fact he essentially took me for a mug. Apart from that the whole trip overall was 7/10. I would DEFINITELY recommend and would 100 percent come back again. Hanif (the driver) definitely made the trip better than it is not that it would be bad without him but he pushed it to another level.

      We had an incredible time at the desert safari! So many activities and if you are lucky enough to get Matti as your guide then you’re in for a real business class experience. Matti really pays attention to details, is very fun and looks after you very well. The Land Cruiser was spacious and comfortable, and we felt very safe with Matti who is an expert sand dune driver and takes you away from the other tours which all follow the same route. Finishing with dinner in the desert camp topped it off. The experience is really good value for money and Matti really made the experience truly special for us.

      Our driver Matti really understands his craft.
      During the trip to the desert, he entertained us well and answered all our questions.
      There were six of us in his own car and had a lot of fun driving through the sand dunes. And the most important thing you could take unforgettable photos in the desert.
      Also the evening program with camel rides in the sunset - with the opportunity to take beautiful photos - the fire and dance show were an experience!
      The Arabic BBQ buffet was delicious.
      We can recommend the tour to everyone

      @matti5673 is just the best guide you can find in Dubai.

      He came to pick us up at the hotel on the clock. He gave us fresh bottle of water; he explained us a lot about the city. He is funny and professional at the same time.

      He was our exclusive photographer for all the activity (not only he took us amazing pictures, but he also edited those before the day was over).

      While every other group had a short time in the red dunes all together, we spent a lot of time there and he managed to kept us apart from the rest of the group, making the experience really exclusive with no extra charges.

      He also offered us some very good date (datteri).

      I strongly recommend it to anyone coming to Dubai because he is the best in what he does.

      Great tour experience with our guide Matti who passionately drove us through the sand dunes and mostly away from the crowd allowing us to take nice pictures. Super service to everyone on board. We also went to a quad center where we booked a ride for some 30 minutes. Our package also included a camel ride and the dinner with beautiful performances by some artists.
