ok lets start witht the good ..driver that picked us up great guy .we had 2 other pick ups after us .so we were in the car for hr and a half ..but we got to see the city which was like a tour ..but a long tour ..first stop quad bikes 30 mins for 2 people on the bike .dont pay anymore then 200 AED .and big tip set your stopwatch when u head off as we were only 12mins on the bike and they were telling us to go back .showed the stop watch and they laughed and then left us alone .second stop the jeep safari .that was great fun and them boys can really drive .edge of your seat stuff .third stop the camels we paid for a longer ride which was about 10 euro ...to be honest its a photo shot ride but worth it ,they do give u a free ride to get a pic but its over before its begun. you do also do sand sufing also just another photo shot thing but a good laugh.now for the evening ..were u sit and watch a belly dance show .seen one belly dance you have seen them all . most people are there for the safari not the evening show ..as the food is really bad .they be better feeding you hotdogs or chips ..even do it is a buffet most of the food is left on the plates ..we were sitting with people from the ivory coast and brazil and we all felt the same about the food..if we had a choice we would have gone back to the city after all the exciting stuff ..so if you are there ask your party do there want to leave early and tell your driver you want to go ...as it is a long day .good value for money

Absolutely awful.. DO NOT BOOK. They don't give you the option to do half the things on the list! Biggest scam ever and a waste of £120. I contacted them on and they blocked me! The only thing I can do now is prevent other people from being scammed by this "VIP" experience. They also pick you up from hotel but then pick up 6 other people from all around dubai which took 2 hours+.

Boarded the vehicle at "JBR" and enroute the Pakistani car driver collected a few Caucasian tourists at a hotel and finally a group of 4 young Indian students from "BITS Pilani" institute who were on a conference in Dubai. It was a long 60 Kms ride from Dubai city to the " Desert Safari" venue situated in the Sand dunes of Al Faqa near the Dubai/Abu Dhabi border. On the way we passed across the landmark "Al Marmoom" camel racetrack finally reaching our destination. As the crowd gradually arrived in their respective vehicles strolled across the desert sand in the vicinity which had a plethora of activities for tourists. Our very first extreme adventure was a car ride by a Pakistani driver on a Suv car on the sand dunes known as " Sand Dune Bashing".Four of us tourists were driven by our driver along the edges and crests of sand dunes which was awesome akin to a mix of the " Goal of death" seen in a circus motorcycle act and sitting on a extreme roller coaster ride. Do experience "Motorcar Sand Dune Bashing" in the desert at least once in your lifetime. Later photographed myself with a " Shahin falcon".Finally after Sunset there was a entertainment of local Arabic music,Sufi dance,belly dance and fire dance which was definitely something different.Alcoholic liquor was also available at the bar but very exorbitantly priced.Worth the money and something different.A must on every tourist's visit to Dubai.

Overall and strange experience with Rayna tours Pickup arrived at the hotel and didn’t say a word to us, didn’t even know his name. We got in the car and drove for miles until we reached this first camp thing where you are pestered left right and centre with people selling tat. We hadn’t opted for quad bikes, our guide pestered us almost like he gets commission for us to go on them ‘this is very good experience’ he kept saying to us, but we didn’t want to do it, so we were sat waiting for 30/40 mins whilst another couple did it. We eventually got back to the car to drive for another 40 mins or so to reach the desert bashing bit which was actually quite fun, we stopped for photos, the sun was setting but wasn’t quite set yet. We then drove on to the main camp, was then told we do camels first (we literally got on the camel and went round in a circle - think you need to pay more to go up into the desert) the poor things looked sick and tired I’m glad we didn’t do it for long. We then went into the camp to sit down for food and the ‘shows’ there was only ever one person performing at time. Food was okay nothing to write home about. Again we weren’t really told anything by our guide at all, we had purchased the alcohol package so we had to negotiate that at the bar, the bartender was really nice and found our hotel in a list and stamped our hands for drinks. You can get a small henna for free as part of your package - it’s really not clear what you can have - there is Shisha and it does say on the list when you book but we didn’t dare ask because you never know what they’re going to charge you with so we didn’t bother. We then was ushered back into the car the second the last show had finished, I couldn’t even go to the toilet, he then said we will stop for tyre pressure down the road where I could go to the toilet but they were disgusting so I held it the whole way back. I feel like the day would of been so much better had it been more informative - just something to think about if you want to book this experience.
