We were lucky to get to know Mahmoud, he was our guide during all trip. He is a really nice person and was answering all our questions about everything during the quite long drive (about 1,5 hour from our place) to the dessert.
This is a unique duna bashing experience that is not offered anywhere else so make sure to try it out here!
The tour exceeded our expectations, tge dune bashing was really a bumpy ride and we felt the thrill!
The Land Cruiser was brand new, like powerful ATV.
ATV ride was not included in our package so we purchased it in the camp (250 dirhams).
Night show was really impressive to us, belly dance and traditional dances as well as the fire show where we literally felt the heat of the fire!
We had some snacks and dinner included, as well as unlimited tea and coffee, small henna tatoo, short camel ride and we could try-on some arabic clothes. A lot of more stuff such as scarfs, food, drinks, rides, arts can be purchased separately.
It was a bit cold evening, as locals said - very unusually cold, so we recommend to take some more clothes with you and keep in mind that you will spend a few hours sitting outside after sunset.
What I liked most about this tour - Dessert thrill?
1. A lot of experiences for a very good price and in one place.
2. Trustwirthy and experienced driver and tour guide. We felt safe during the dune bashing.
3. Mahmoud was always taking care of us so that we would get what we paid for and didn't miss anything.
4. Great night show.
I see people in reviews complaining about the short camel ride, which for me was really ok and I was even glad it was short. It was my first time to ride a camel and I was scared to try it so it was okay for me. You can always ask for a longer ride if you like it, but I was happy I didn't have to pay more just to try it out wheter I'll like it or not.
The travel from Dubai to the dessert takes some time but for me it was also ok, it was good to escape the city and see the surroundings and that dessert that was here before the Dubai was settled. It is a bigger and more 'real' dessert that the one that is closer to the city but it is as always up to you, if you want fast food or something better.
Overall, I recommend this tour since I think is is really good quality for the price.
