          Desert experience
          Desert Safari experience was a highlight of our holiday and our tour guide Baiju was excellent. He gave us tips regarding Dubai but mostly made sure we’re enjoying ourselves, took pictures of us and made sure we had a brilliant unforgettable experience. Dune bashing was such a must and we felt safe as Baiju was a great driver. Great food and entertainment show at sunset, delicious traditional food and atmosphere. Thank you Baiju Andra&family

          Remote camping with our amazing guide Baiju
          If you want to make wonderful memories this is the trip for you. We booked the day trip with remote overnight camping which was amazing waking up at 5am to see the sunrise over the dunes. My daughter was struggling with heat stroke but our guide Baiju who was wonderful looked after us and never left our side. We also received a call from Mary in the UK to see if we were ok. It can be scary in a foreign country when you’re unwell but these guys couldn’t have done more to make us feel safe. The remote camping was incredible, we were greeted by a campfire, marshmallows and drinks. We got up at 5am and Baiju who we nick named Mr B was there taking photos and once again looking after us. The team made us breakfast in the teepee before heading home. I can’t thank Mr B and Mary enough for looking after us to make wonderful memories and experiences we will never forget. Xx

          Amazing Experience from an Amazing Tour Operator!
          We arranged for a private tour to include pickup from our apartment, 1 hour dune buggy, dune bashing and sand boarding. Communication throughout with Ali and Sara was excellent as was the driver Baiju. He made the dune bashing experience one never to be forgotten. The dune buggy was done by a third party and whilst it was great fun the vehicle had some problems which meant that we only actually got to drive it for 30minutes. Destination Insight arranged for a refund of half the price of the one hour dune buggy cost. I would highly recommend Destination Insight for your Dubai adventure trips. They are a helpful, friendly and honest company. Thanks again Ali and team!

          Unforgettable experience
          Two families (four adults and three children under the age of six) embarked upon a 40th Arabian celebration in the desert and what an amazing time we all had! We had two tents, were collected from home by the drivers and arrived at the camp after a visit to the camels and dune driving. The drivers were friendly and fantastic as were the whole team. The private camp was great fun for adults and children and the food delicious. Highly recommend for an unforgettable experience!

          Amazing Desert Experience
          We are so glad we chose Destination Insight for our desert safari, they use large and very comfortable 4x4s. Our driver Chacko was fantastic. We had fun dune bashing, we tried sand boarding and had a short camel ride. Chacko took great photos & videos on our phones, We saw the sunset and then had a great bbq dinner with excellent entertainment in a beautiful camp setting. We highly recommend that you do the desert safari with this company - you will not regret it! Thank you Chacko and Destination Insight for such a memorable trip.

          A great morning Desert Bashing.
          An unbelievable morning made all the better by our amazing guide Baiju Chacko which made us have a great time. Very prompt and friendly from the start, amazing clean Landcruiser and he provided a great overview whilst travelling through Dubai, quad biking that was amazing, with my fearless 12 year old achieving the highest speed. The skilful driving through the dunes left my stomach in the dessert and the snow/sand boarding which I’m still laughing at now. Thoroughly recommend to everyone.

          The best desert safari!!!
          Fantastic afternoon / evening spent driving a quad, dune bashing, eating good food and entertainment. All made better with the safe and knowledgeable driver Mansoor who knew the desert like the back of his hand. Highly recommend this on a trip to Dubai!

          Relaxing moment in the middle of the desert
          We spent 5 hours of pleasure in the middle of the desert. 3 adults and 2 kids having fun, eating delicious food, appreciating a rare moment away from the noise. 2 lovely people dedicated to us (Mansour and Raub). Thanks again

        Exceeded our expectations! Had an amazing night, lovely and unforgettable experience. Definitely an Arabian experience. Mary and her team has been lovely and helpful. We booked a dining experience for 10 people, we got a sunset lounge, a beautiful dinner set up and a tea/marshmallow bonfire setup too.

        Thank you Destination Insight.

        We had the perfect private sunset barbecue last week. Our 40+ guests were all amazed by the seating in the desert, the fun activities, the perfect sunset view, and also the exceptional fire dancing. On top of this, we enjoyed a nice barbecue prepared by the lovely team. Big thanks to Mary and Ali for organizing that event that gave to all of us an unforgettable experience!

        I’d have left 6 stars if I could. Destination Insight created an incredible experience for our family in Boxing Day. We took our young kids and their grandparents and everyone loved it. Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable and expert drivers in the sand. We felt totally at ease in the dunes. Arriving at our evening camp was magical and the food prepared for us went down a treat. The lemon almonds have become a family favourite. Sand boarding and marshmallows around the campfire were highlights for everyone and gave us some really special time together as a family away from all the usual distractions. Thank you!

        The team were punctual and very organised to get everyone to the desert location for sunset, were we were able to relax and catch up with each other. The food was great, we wanted for nothing, and there were also some activities available before the BBQ dinner was served to our tables including sandboarding. Afterwards when the temperature dropped a little we sat by the fire with marshmallows.

        Highly recommend Destination Insight for your private event. We have organised our elopement with then as a private desert experience with dinner and some activities and cannot recommend them enough as things have turned exactly as planned and expected. Mary has been our support before the big day and Ali and their team on the day. Things have been organised to plan on the day and Ali has been so nice and kind and made us feel like everything was about us, he has been a big support looking after us. I have to also mention that sometimes Mary took a few days to respond to my questions, but don't be put off by it, because once she did, she responded with more details than asked about everything and suggestions. I understand they are a family run business and sometimes very busy, but they definitely know what they are doing and know how to make your event special. Also, I really appreciated that Mary shared with us many many options for decorations and I even had in mind things they didn't do before, but we discussed and discussed and came up with a solutions that I was very happy with. The food has also been delicious!!! I feel they went above and beyond to make our day special and with this feedback I want to thank everyone once again.

        Myself and my colleagues just experienced a really nice event in the desert for our company end of year event organised with Mary. The event was flawless, the set up divine, the food delicious and all around good vibes. Mary arranged a bus to take 40 of us to and from the desert .. unlike many things in the middle east the bus ran on time and we were appreciative of that :) All of the guys I work with, including the CEO said how much they enjoyed the event, so thank you to DI for a making it a memorable event for us.

        An amazing experience away from the busy city life in Dubai but close enough to make it convenient. The dinner was delicious and very private - we were very well looked after. The schedule was also perfect so we could see the sunset out in the desert and did sand boarding before the dinner itself.

        It’s so good we’re going again with friends!

        The experience with destination insight is a must do in the UAE. We had a series of activities during my the day and at night there was nothing better than the great BBQ and a bonefire where we partied till Sunrise. Nothing can describe the beautiful set up and lighting that they did for us. It was such a private, beautifull evening with a full moon and starts for my friends and I. I would recommend anyone to try it. The value you get compared to the price is nowhere to be found elsewhere!

        Exceptional set up and very attentive. We went to do the BBQ experience for two people and I say it could have gone better.
        The service to book via WhatsApp is very easy and they give you a full range of options.
        It is not cheap, but I truly believe it is worth the value.
