I am from the U.S. and have never traveled so far before as a solo traveler, so I was nervous about booking such a tour. This was the morning safari for my first day in Dubai.

What a wonderful all-in-one type experience it turned out to be! The tour, as described, takes about 3 hours including the ride out and back into the city.

As I mentioned, I traveled solo, but two others joined in that day/time, and Abbas was our safari guide.

Abbas packed a lot of fun into those three hours! He also used the drive time to explain life in the city and life in the desert. Once out there, we got to experience desert biking, camel riding, sand boarding, and dune bashing. This tour is a great way to do a lot in a relatively short time. I highly recommend to those, like me, who are new to Dubai!

Although there is only a little bit of time for each activity, I felt like it was just enough to get a good feel for each and to get as many (or as little) photos as you'd like!

Abbas very clearly loves his work and wants everyone to enjoy the beauty and fun of the desert as much as he does.

I am so glad that I booked this as my first tour in the country. It was a wonderful introduction to Dubai and its surroundings. I thought it was a great experience and an excellent value for the price. Thank you again, Abbas!

As we were only in Dubai for a flying visit, we didn’t have time to do the full day of activities (as much as we wanted to as it sounded amazing!) but my husband was determined to have a go at dune buggying. We struggled to find someone who would do us this stripped back trip until Abbas was recommended to us - and I’m so glad he was! It was a brilliant experience. We were collected from our hotel at a time that suited us, in a lovely car and driven out to the desert. Abbas ensures he told us lots of information about the areas that we were passing which was great to learn. When we arrived, we were introduced to our guide who would keep us safe out in the open desert and he certainly did that. He went ahead of us on a quad bike and led us through miles of gorgeous sand dunes, showing us the best angles to tackle each dune ensuring that we could have the enjoyment of going fast while keeping safe. He then made time for us to stop and take in the scenery while taking some amazing pictures for us on our phone at no extra charge. He also stopped near a group of camels for us to meet too and have pictures with!
Nothing was too much for this lovely team. They provided us with water throughout, ensured we were safe and provided us with a helmet and we really did have the most incredible time! I’d highly recommend and look forward to heading back to Dubai for the full day experience next time. Thank you to Abbas and his team!
Max & Sophie.

We really enjoyed our desert safari! Riding the dunes in a vehicle was more fun than I had imagined....although some in our merry crew could have used motion sickness medication prior to the trip. (Think Disney ride that’s fun at first, but then you can’t get off...) Abbas, our guide, was fantastic. He explained everything along the way, drove safely and served as photographer when we needed it.

Sand-boarding was fun to try...it didn’t go too fast which made it manageable. We enjoyed the camel ride at the Bedouin camp, henna (although it may last on my hand for a month), and the entertainment. Bedouins are pushy salespeople (they’ve been trading for thousands of years), so expect some attention from them at the camp and also at the shops. I highly suggest getting a traditional scarf. Be sure to negotiate the price.) They’ll tie it on your head and you’ll be happy you have it when your hair is blowing in the wind and you can’t get a good picture. :)
All in all, it was money well spent, even before they fed us. So glad this was part of our trip to Dubai.

My friends and I participated in this tour and it is exactly what it offers. We got a 4x4 ride in the red sand dunes, sand surfed, rode camels, got an optional ATV ride experience in the desert (additional fee) and enjoyed a great camp site which included a buffet dinner and more complimentary activities. Our guides, Abbas and Asim were friendly, patient, punctual and phenomenal photographers! We had a great time and would recommend this excursion to all!

This was by far!! the best excursion while in Dubai. My husband and I spent the week celebrating our birthdays and we would most definitely do the day again and highly recommend.

Abbas our tour guide was amazing!! He went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our safari excursion. We were in a small group of 6. The couples we were with were from Italy and they were fun to be with even with the language barrier,

We were picked up from our hotel with a prior WhatsApp message confirming our pick up time from Abbas. We received a second message letting us know his location outside our hotel and vehicle colour. Abbas welcomed us and informed is of another pick up (two couples). During our short drive, Abbas pointed out some buildings and told us a bit about what they were and the history behind them.

Once the other couples joined the group, Abbas shared our itinerary with us. We all got to hear more about the city and take in the sites of the beautiful buildings.

We had 30 minutes quad biking ( so much fun!!£) before Abbas took us dune bashing in the desert in his Jeep. While in the desert, we had time to experience sand boarding and photo opportunities. I must say, the photos Abbas took of us and the group were fantastic!!

We then headed over to the camp were we had 40 minutes to spare before a barbecue and a show. During those 40 minutes, there were so many things to do such as a camel ride, henna tattoo, shisha and more. Abbas explained everything about the camp and showed us were we were to be seated once the evening meal was ready. We were clear about what time to meet him and where.

The food was well prepared and the arrangement of serving everyone was very organised. The show was very good with the fire eater making the show. We headed back to our meeting point to meet Abbas who ensured we got back to our hotels in one price.

What an excursion to remember!!

Definitely would recommend. Thank you Abbas for an amazing trip.

It was a wonderful experience.
The way 4x4 is driven up to the dunes and climb down is amazing and scary too, I hope they are certified to do the stunts.
Once in a life time type experience though.
Food served is of average quality.
Performances were good.
Overall great experience.

We had a fantastic night from booking right thru to drop off! Abbas messaged us early in the day with an approx pick up time and was at our hotel on time.

He was a very informative and approachable guide. Abbas was a fun and safe driver thru the dunes and great photographer. Once we arrived at the camp he set us up and kept checking on us and made sure we were having having a fantastic night. The food and shows were great.

Abbas is worth is weight in gold and is a huge asset to your company.

Had an amazing morning trip to the desert. Our tour guide, Abbas, was fantastic. Very helpful, friendly and informative. We rode quad bikes and a camel before he drove us up down the sand dunes in the desert on the outskirts of Dubai. The experience cost about £60 (£90 including the quad bikes which is definitely worth it!) and took up the whole morning. If you only in Dubai for a short time make sure you give this go!
