          Took an hour to get up, an hour to get down. The views were amazing but not worth the ticket price or the wait. Almost better from outside than in.

          Global Village was awesome
          This was our second time at the Global Village. It is a great experience as you get to shop and eat from different places in the world. The site is also very beautiful.

          Overpriced tickets, irresponsive tour operator.
          Burj Khalifa was great but not perfectly orderly and is overcrowded. The tour operator was not responsive. It never initiated. I didn't get the tickets the night before the visit. I had to reach out and give my Whatsapp info which I had provided. Do not that tour operator.

          Worth once
          We had read that inspite of prebooking tickets, you need to stand in the queue to collect tickets before getting to the elevator. Fortunately they seem to have removed the hurdle. We showed our online tickets and stood in the elevator queue. Spent 15 min in the queue to go up. It wasn’t too crowded which was surprising for Jan. the views are amazing and as we were there after 8 pm, we could see the fountain show as well. Views and pictures are through the glass walls. There is a small opening at the lower end of these walls just above the floor. If adventurous, you can slip in your hand and take some good pics. 15 min wait yo come down the elevator. All in all worth the price for one visit. Visit at night is more magical. I still feel Burj looks more amazing and imposing from the outside during daylight.

          More than just Desert Sand
          We had a blast! Sean, our driver was very informative while we drove to our desert location. The dune drive was so much fun! Photo spots were on point. We all left with beautiful pictures. We even had a dance party in the desert!! When we arrived at the dinner location the fun continued. I enjoyed the camel ride and even went sand boarding for the first time!! Now that was an experience! The buffet and dinner show was very nice! All the workers made sure we had a great time.!! I will definitely do this adventure again!

          Dissappointing experience, nothing 5-star about it.
          This was a dissappointing cruise with dinner having some items that had gone bad, music too loud, staff polite but not too interested and the route not really going far enough to get a feel of the Dubai skyline. There is nothing 5-star about this cruise. My guests from the US were put off by the experience and arent really going to trust reviews in tripadvisor anymore.

          Poor experience. Spent longer in the bus than on the boat
          I really didn't rate this trip at all. We were collected at 7pm, didn't reach the boat until 8.50pm. We were left on the dockside with no instructions what to do next and the driver drove off. I went to find our boat (which was easy enough). We got on board and boat should have departed at 9pm. Instead it left at 9.20pm. It should have arrived back at 11pm, Instead it docked at 10.45pm. We spent longer in the bus on the way down, than we did on the actual boat. Food, while admittedly tasty, was mediocre in variety and appearance. But the rice like pudding was very tasty. I would not recommend this trip to my family or friends.

          Excellent service Mr.Irfan and team
          We booked our private land cruiser. Mr.Irfan was our driver and guide throughout our tour..he rendered an excellent service! We enjoyed our best, special thanks to Mr.Irfan for treating us like family with utmost kindness and care. I would highly recommend this company and its service. From picking us up at our location to the drop off and every event through the evening was well organised and timed perfectly! Thanks for the wonderful evening and excellent memories!

          Amazing Desert Safari!
          A trip to Dubai is incomplete without going for desert safari. Such an amazing and well organized experience with a super friendly tour guide. I highly recommend!

        The dune bashing was fine, however, the dinners was disgusting. Many people get ripped off on this event. DO NOT pay more than $35 per person for this excursion. Do not eat the dinner as there are flies and staff touch the food with their hands. Do not opt for the VIP seating for extra charge as it is worthless and you won't see the show. I strongly suggest when you arrive at the camp, get a seat by the stage and enjoy the show. Negotiate the long camel ride (20 AED max) if want to take it.

        All the tour companies are disorganized and they will do what they can to get money out of you. They do take credit cards so get pressured into paying in cash.

        DO NOT BOOK THIS TRIP!!!
        The worse trip ever!
        The driver almost crash 2 times.
        The service of the driver was bad, he even didn’t offer us a water which is included in the offer.
        We pick up some smelly indian guy from in the middle of the highway, who definitely wasn’t part of the group and like that we was 7 people in the car and it was really uncomfortable. The driver said that he will be with us just for a little bit, but he spent the whole time with us.
        We went in the desert and after that in the campus for a bbq and live show.
        The food was bad. The was giving us the food like a dogs, throwing the meat in plastic plates. When the show over we get back in the car and this smelly guy came again with us, but he was really drunk. He said that he wanted to sit in the rear seat next to two girls from America.
        After 2 minutes I heard how the girls start complaining that this guy touching one of them. We stopped after 2 minutes in on shop and the driver called to someone.
        One guy came and said that he is the owner of the company and asked what is the problem. We explain to him and told him that we don’t want this guy with us in the car. He said that he is his customer and can’t leave him there. He start arguing with us like we are nobody and we are not right.
        When I asked the driver why this guy is with us he didn’t answered me.
        All of us was really angry about this.
        Please don’t book this trip, is better to give a bit more money than that to treat you like a dog!!!

        You do get a lot for your money. Someone will pick you up from hotel around 2.30pm. We had some issues/mis communication and didnt leave until 3.30pm so I’m not sure if we missed anything as we went straight to the quad bikes. This was an extra cost and we had about 50 minutes to spend there. There is a small shop if you needed refreshments. After that it was time for dune bashing, we had about 30 minutes of it before stopping for some photo opportunities. Then it was time for camp. Included in the price was a very short camel ride, some sand boarding, a BBQ, entertainement (belly dancing, fire breathing etc) and a free henna tattoo. There is always people there trying to up-sell - you can get VIP service and the food brought to you for an extra 150aed, or pay extra for a longer camel ride etc. It’s a lovely atmosphere and it finishes around 8.30pm so not too late if you have children. Authentic experience and nice to see a different side to Dubai.

        Good afternoon out. 6 hours so good value for money there. Good to experience something different. zubair (driver) very good - good at driving, and took some good pictures on our phones throughout the experience.

        You then go to a camp for dinner and some live acts which are very good. Do get offered a lot of paid extras which can become a bit annoying as most of it is outside the package you have already paid for.

        Quad bikes are good fun too, but you only get the ones in the compound - otherwise you then have to pay extra to go outside on more powerful quad bikes.

        It was a long drive picking up several in in 4x4 with 7 people & driver which covered approximately 2.5 hours before we hit on the drive for sand dunes . On way we were stopped for a quad drive and tried it to find it was just aggressive people driving all around with so many and I felt bit uneasy seeing aggression in driving from any point towards add ny point. I gave up with fear of being hit by someone and when I tried to settle sum understood it was 250!AeD steep. Suggest for others drop it.

        We went up sand dunes - I found no thrill being a glider and Aerospace guy having seen air pockets, bringing form several thousand feet when you hit one ! Well adventure end we went on road to camp . It was bit chill and some interesting activity. Though I thought belly dance was just ordinary.

        Food was poor quality.

        But this was just a good change and booking privately at 300 $ is not worth it, I had feeling of tiredness moment hit the Bed 🛏

        We are late for 20mins due to traffic jam , our driver wait for us at the lobby keep contacting us for our location. Luckily we catch that. The tour start with ATV ride with extra cost and cost is nearly the same with the whole tour so we did not do it . The desert ride is awesome the camel ride is awesome with beautiful sunset . Do not expect too much on the BBQ dinner but the show is amazing . I give a full score this trip . Do not missed the BBQ corn 🌽 ate the dinner area. Taste good and it fills your tummy for the night !

        I am torn by giving this tour a rating, because my husband and I did truly enjoy our desert safari, as it is a classic must when visiting Dubai. However, there are so many areas for improvement for this tour company. Firstly, the communication was poor and spotty prior to the pick up day. Once the driver arrived, we weren’t told what to expect or any sort of agenda by him. He also stopped twice for personal stops during the tour (once for gas and once at a car shop). We enjoyed a dune buggy ride in the desert (which was an extra fee we were prepared for). After that we were taken off-reading to a desert tourist camp where we had a camel ride and dinner. What we didn’t expect was that although the tour described each of these things as being “included”, they tried to up sell us on each and every activity. You could have a picture on a camel for free, or ride around for extra. You could have the buffet dinner for free, or sit on a couch and be served for extra. You could smoke shisha for free but only one flavor and in a designated area…you get the idea. The people working the camp were pushy and short with us each time we asked a question, a far cry from the hospitality we experienced throughout our trip by most Emirati people. I know there are dozens of these camps aimed at entertaining tourists, so it is what it is. But perhaps the service of a different company would have been more pleasant. In the end, I would recommend anyone tracking to Dubai to experience a desert safari, just not this one.

        Zubair is the best driver I've ever saw!! His 10 years experience allows him to drive fast and safe, even with a child on board. He is always welcome to help and answer your qiestions.
        Zubair also helped in a difficult situation with locals (It was professional). Safari was awesome, and show was amazing. There were plenty of different food.
        Thanks a lot, I'll recommend everyone to go to safari with Zubair👍😉🙂👀🤣

        Alam our guide made this an enjoyable day. Couldn’t do enough for us all. Downside was being told we had to pay extra for the VIP service during the barbecue dinner or we would have to wait 2 hours before we could have our meal. Would have been nice to have known beforehand. That said, the service was excellent but just be prepared to pay an additional 50 AED per head. I would still highly recommend the day. Lots of fun.

        Today we were at a safari tour. Our driver and guide was Alam. In one word we want to say - Brilliant, in two words - highly recommended. He is very well self organised, arrived on time, all instructions were precise and clear. Drive on the dunes was absolutely spectacular, high level of adrenaline kicking, and the most important was he is highly skilled which makes you feel safe in such a "dangerous ride". Then we had the pleasure of sand scating. Again lots of fun, laughs and fun. Then we went for the rest of the program, i.e. belly dancing, fire performances and dinner. And again, Alam was so attentive, polite and patient with us. When you want to go for a safari trip you must go with Alan and save guaranteed. Inna from New York and Lucy from London
