Overall I would rate the experience very highly and I personally feel that it’s fantastic value for money.
The day was fairly seamless, free bottles of water was provided throughout and the food at the bbq was better than expected.

I would recommend anyone doing this experience to take some food with them as we ended up going around 5 hours without eating (I usually eat every 3-4 so was very very hungry by the time we got to have food at 6:30pm).

I have to add that I paid to upgrade from the quad bike to the dune buggy (it was £150 extra and I didn’t even try and haggle as I felt this was fair but I feel like there may have been some wiggle room if you asked) as I was with a girl who didn’t want to drive and didn’t fancy being on the back of a quad. We got very lucky in that by having the dune buggy we didn’t go out with everyone else so basically had a private session with a guide. This did lead to a significant I creas in enjoyment of the whole experience as we were able to pretty much do what we want. We asked the guide to go a bit faster and he obliged.

My main issue and the reason for 4 stars and not 5 was that the day itself is advertised as multiple activity. And this didn’t really turn out to be true. We only did the dune buggy (which was amazingly good fun) with a very quick stop for the sand boarding. I was actually really looking forward to the sand boarding but we only got 5 mins (literally down the side of a dune twice and that was it) and also the sand boarding equipment was actually old and mostly broken. So that did take away from the enjoyment of an activity that I was particularly looking forward to.

That said, after we then went to the Bedouin style camp which was cool. I opted out of the camel ride as I’ve done it quite a few times before when I was younger on different holidays and to be honest I don’t really like how the camels are treated at these sort of places. They are kept very closely chained up to one another so that one cannot stand up without pulling the next one up with it.
The camp itself was laid out nicely with been bags at the tables dotted around and also a shisha bit at the side.
The food was really nice and better than I expected. Not loads of choice but I’m not fussy and love Middle Eastern food so no issue there for me.

I felt that the performances at the camp were pretty unimpressive if I’m brutally honest (another reason for the 4 stars not 5) but again coming back to the value for money aspect, I don’t think this experience was very expensive at all so I’m not massively disappointed at the quality or the performances.

All in all a very good trip and I would definitely recommend. Just manage your expectations based on prices paid. And don’t expect to have such a fun time on a group quad ride. It looked much more boring and tame to be honest when we came across the groups on quads.

Had an amazing experience, our guide (Malik Aftab) was excellent he was very polite and made the journey more entertaining. Throughout the day he made sure we were safe/ happy with the activities & at the end made sure we got the food as needed and that we were well hydrated (as it gets extremely hot). I would definitely recommend this activity to others as all the items on the itinerary are very fun and the convenience of pick up and drop off makes this a must.

So glad I booked this trip it was a fantastic afternoon evening out; I was informed of our pick up from our hotel and everything went as it should. The quad biking over the desert was great with a guide who kept everyone together knew of the best places for photos. Sand boarding was good I was just bad at it! We then went to the camp for a camel ride (which you can decline as we did) sweets, coffee, henna tattoo, fruit juice and bbq. The show was really good with male and female dancer and a fire eater. The bbq was delicious so much choice and all food stations were replenished as soon as they were getting low. At your table there is a container with soft drinks and clothes to try on. Also blankets are available to use as we went to the 3pm slot and it does get very cold as soon as the sun goes down. There is also a viewing stand to watch the sunset, and a telescope to view the moon. This is definitely one of the best organised trips I’ve ever been on and well worth the money.

We had a superb experience with enough activity and rest in between to keep a 7 hour day packed and fun. The Red Dunes ATV experience was easy to book, great communication up to pick
up time via What’s App, then a little confusing before things got better. We changed our time to the later one at 145 so we could see the stars and sunset. Return time was around 1030 pm. So glad we did that because they pulled out telescopes for everyone to see Jupiter and Saturn! This was after a wild 90 minutes riding ATVS and then camels, eating an ok meal, chatting and lounging in the tents, shisha and dancers. Really something for everyone. Our guide, Haroom,was very quiet, didn’t really say a word most of the time which was very odd but he came alive when taking pictures. Honestly, his pictures were like we had a professional photographer documenting our entire experience. He staged everything in the perfect light, poses, etc. the tour itself was worth it if only for the beautiful photos taken with our own cameras! He’s truly an artist. (I did have a few questions that I would have liked to ask a guide who could fill in a little info about though).

The meal was so-so. Salads, rices, some
vegetables, and chicken and lamb. Fruit for dessert. But I didn’t come for the food. Everything was served hot and immediately upon our arrival after riding the camels (which you could ride again if you didn’t get enough the first time).

The stage was in the middle and 3 different performances took place between dinner and some down time
To enjoy the sunset, cool breeze, stars, shisha and dessert. The overall locale in Al Qudra Lake was lovely. Also a falconer and henna all included.

Totally recommend this tour!

My wife and I fully enjoyed our experience with the red dunes quad bike team, and highly recommend them for any adventure seekers visiting Dubai. We each opted for individual buggies to maximize driver time, and it was absolutely worth it.

In particular, we would like to thank Santhosh who is an incredible host, guide, driver, photographer and conversationalist.

24-hours prior to our scheduled excursion, they were in contact with us to confirm pick up time, location, and help us dress and pack appropriately for the days activities.

The day-of, Santhosh promptly picked us up from our hotel at the time they had scheduled, safely brought us to the dunes, and swiftly got us in action.

We highly recommend Red Dunes Quad Bike for any thrill seekers in Dubai. You will not be disappointed, and you will most definitely leave with great photos and fun memories.

Jaseem was our host and driver. He was excellent and a great entertainer (good music and positive personality throughout the day) , he kept spirits high even though it rained !! In Dubai !!!

The driving was about 1 hour out of dubai with stops along the way for quad biking, camel riding and Arab activities. The day lasted from 3pm to 10:30pm (afternoon session)

Would recommend to anyone thinking of getting a full experience and good value for money.

Thanks again jaseem you legend!

This was hands down such a wonderful excursion. Our guide for the day Aamerr Abbas made the trip so educational about all things Dubai, he picked us up from our hotel and went quad biking, it was a lot of fun but the heat from the motor is very hot near your legs, so that’s something to be mindful off, but it was our first dip into the desert. I was very worried about getting sick during the dune bashing and even though he did not go at a slower pace, I was fine, we did sand boarding after and he was so encouraging and made it very easy.
He took a lot of pictures for us which was amazing, especially capturing some beautiful sunset shots, we headed out to the camp site for the rest of the evening and the place was so beautiful.
We got to feed the camels and then ride them which was amazing, even though my daughter is deathly afraid of animals and didn’t want to do it he reassured her it was nothing to fear and she did both, after we had some delicious karak chai, and a sweet appetizer, we booked the vip experience so for dinner we had our own private spot and an insane amount of food was served to us. It was more than enough for 6 people and it was just the two of us. After I did a little shopping in the bazaar and got some beautiful abayas, traditional clothing, we then sat to watch three amazing performances. We tried some shisha but beware even though I asked many time and was reassured there was no tobacco, it had tobacco. It was very mild and had a fruity flavour but not my thing, I also got to hold and pet the falcon, the only thing we did not do was the henna and dressing up in the womens traditional clothing.
All through the trip, Aamerr kept checking on us to make sure we were hydrated, had everything we needed and took lots of pictures for us. He knows so much of the history of Dubai and the UAE we learned so much.
On this trip it was just myself and my daughter, When we return I will definitely book with Ocean Air again and request Aamerr as my personal guide. Thank you for such an unforgettable experience.

Our guides Hasan & Nishantha were awesome! They picked us up straight from our hotel. We did the atving in the dessert first. We bought some head scarves and tunics for the guys to wear during the ride. They kept us hydrated the whole trip with water and juice. Before going over safety instructions they also served us tea and coffee with sweet dates. I would definitely recommend going during a later time slot cause it was very hot during the time we went. Hasan took amazing photos of our friends. 10/10 photography skills. We wanted to skip out on the camel ride due to the hot weather but he convinced us to try it anyways. Afterwards they took us to Al Khayma Camp where they have souvenirs you can purchase. They provided henna tattoos for the girls and you could also take photos with a falcon. Highly recommended trying the milk tea and loukmas donuts. The vibes were really nice. Dinner was buffet style with a lot of food. During the show they provided shisha and desserts. They even dropped half of us off earlier cause we were so tired from the adventures!

Me and my two besties did our first ever desert safari and it was such an amazing experience. From getting picked up to going to the red dunes with our own quad bikes to going to the camp, everyone made the experience memorable and was worth the money. I would definitely recommend this company based on the great staff and service and also the fact that it was such a fun day out! Wahab was our guide who was with us the whole day and he made us feel so welcome, safe and was an amazing guide, so special shout out to him!
