I was in Dubai for NY and booked again with Saifco travel a desert safari. Previously I was booking with other famous companies (Arabian night tours and Ocean Air desert safari) but I was not satisfied with the length and drive in the desert for dune bashing (5 minutes on the same dune which was not high, no stop for sunset photos) and they were overpriced, I paid 70% more than I paid with Saifco. So I decided to book again with Saifco because they offer reasonable prices and do their job as expected with a dune bashing between 30-40 minutes and always stop for photos during sunset on high dunes so you can see all desert and Oman.
Once more they did great job and I have asked again to be picked up by Naveed as he was our guide in 2020. We were very satisfied last time with him and again he made us feel perfect and enjoyed the safari. He picked up us on time, he gave detailed information what awaits us & we played music we want in the car the whole trip. He as guide is very attentive, kind and is answering all question we have about he safari or Dubai. He also is making sure we feel comfortable during the drive on the dunes - asking if we want slow or more extreme.
He also makes sure we arrive first in the camp to choose best table to watch the shows, and before queues develop for food, bar, Shisha and WC.
Definitely one of the best companies in Dubai.

Early 30's couple, booked a desert safari experience and it was AMAZING! Our guide was Naveed, skilled driver and very good english speaker (no german), answered our questions precisly. Travelled with a Toyota Landcuiser 2020, 7 places confortable and safe. We were picked up around 13:40 and collected other two couples from two different hotels. We arrived always first at the stops, that was very convenient as we did not stay in long queues. Quad drive was too expensive ( 150-350dhr/30min), so we skipped and enjoyed the sunny weather under a palm.
Desert cruising was fun and full of adrenalin as well as the sand boarding. We choose to skip camel riding and free shisha smoking. At the camp Naveed propsed us to choose a limited VIP place for 50dhr/person and it is worth to choose VIP seat because soft drinks are served unlimited at the table and there is open buffet with lots of meal varieties.
The show at the camp was OK, still not really authentic (malaesyan bellydancers).
The only thing that bothered, we were as a group with the other two couples, then one decided to leave earlier and we missed the end of the show. Positive was, that in this matter we were the first to leave and avoided traffic jam. Henna painting was cool. Thank you Naveed and Saifco Travel for the experience! Trustworthy firm!

This was the best day we have had in Dubai so far! We were collected at 2pm and taken right to the desert where there was shops, fresh juice & quad biking which we had not booked but we opted for anyway. We are a family of 4 with a 9 year old and 4 year old so we paid for the Dune Buggy - so glad we did it was so much fun!!! You can haggle the price a little here so try your best!

Next we went to do the dunes in the Jeep, it was a brand new car which was a bonus as we started realising that some of the other companies use old cars. Abbas' car was top of the range! The dune driving so much fun, we drove for around 20 mins stopped for the sand boarding. We all had a go even my 4 year old who sat on the board!

The last stop was the camal riding, meal and shows in the deser. We had a front row that had been reserved for us which was great as the kids could see everything. The staff there were a bit of a let down, they would only let you get 1 meal per person but we did not want everyone in the que.. Either way it did not put a downer on the day!

Abbas had taken pictures & videos of us on the buggy and on the dunes on the sand board which he sent by WhatsApp. There was no cost to have the pics, he just wanted us to make the most of the experience and want us to have memories! He was also very talkative on the journeys.

I would 100% reccomend this excursion - and would advise you ask for Abbas to be your driver if possible!

Overall a nice desert safari tour. The dune bashing was fun and our driver Naveed did an excellent job driving the car through the hilly dunes in the desert in Sharjah. The quad bike ride was fun but nothing super special, it was in a crowded place. The camp dinner was nice, we upgraded to “VIP” for 30 dollars extra. The shows were entertaining. Our driver was friendly and told us about things we saw along the way and by the end of the tour he offered to drop us off downtown which fit us better. Recommended.

It was amazing, the driver pick us up from the hotel in a very comfortable 4x4. We really recommend the driver, he has a a lot of experience driving in the desert. We had the opportunity to drive a buggy, do a safari, snowboard on the dunes, camel riding, bbq and watch a traditional dancing. Excellent experience.

It truly is the best desert safari! Our safari was terrific from beginning to end. There was great communication from the tour company and our driver. Our guide and driver, Ali picked us up at our holiday apartment promptly at the designated time. His 4WD was spotless and very comfortable, seating a total of 6 persons.

There was a dune buggy option before setting off to the desert which we decided not to do.

If you have not been dune bashing in a 4WD, I highly recommend it. Our skilled driver, Ali bashed and ‘surfed’ the sand dunes in our 4WD making it look easy. It was an exciting and enjoyable ride. He was thoughtful and regularly checked to make sure everyone on board was okay.

Sandboarding is also something everyone should try! It was a fantastic and fun experience and even a young child in our group was able to have fun and tackle the dunes.

Ali then took us to watch the sunset over the dunes before taking us to a shared Bedouin camp. Our tour included a delicious buffet dinner, belly dancing show, fire show, henna tattoos, shisha smoking and camel ride.

Thank you, Ali for being such a great tour guide and dune basher! We had a fabulous time and a memorable safari and desert experience. It has been the highlight of our first visit to Dubai.

Great experience with very good guide Mr. Nawaz who on the way to our desert destination answered our questions regarding the sites we saw along the drive. He was also a very experienced driver. The safari experience was better than I expected. Other than the dune ride, I found the entertainment of belly dancers and fire acrobats really good. The buffet was also of good standards.

Definitely recommend this day trip, from 2pm onwards it was a lot of fun
There were 6 of us in the car with a little baby. We had a good group of people, you stop for an out at a place to ride ATVs and Buggy’s both were about $200 to ride for 20 mins we then did sand duning and Sand boarding but there was only one board between 14 of us so I suggest more sand boards for future.
The camp was fun with fantastic food, shows and so much to do but the free camel ride was a huge line to wait and only walks about 10 feet so we paid for a longer ride with no wait time.
The day was a lot of fun, and totally recommend it for anyone Dubai

Abbas was my husband and I tour guide. From the very beginning the process was amazing. He was on time, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and overall a great time. We started with the atv in the sand dunes, following the suv sand dunes, then sand boarding. The final part of the tour was the camp where we got to ride camels, enjoy an amazing show, buffet and drinks. Abbas was there the entire time checking in on us providing an unforgettable experience. Book this tour without looking further, you will not regret it!
