we chose the aed375 all in one package. the overnight desert stay was an amazing experience. sabir our guide for the night was really hands on and ensured we enjoyed our stay. its cold and misty at night hence do bring a jacket to keep u warm even though blankets are provided. separately the afternoon session was good also commendable whereby the camel ride, atv, sand boarding is located all in one area. not included is taking pics with falcon aed20 and traditional headscarf aed20. food served is not bad and enjoyed the shows as well. washroom is clean but be prepared for those planning to stay overnight there is no bathing area though.

We were picked up on time by our friendly driver Usamath, who made the trip a pleasure! We had a great chat on the way over, he is accommodating and always asked if we were having a good time, is there anything we need. Once we got to the dunes - OH MY GOD! So much fun battering them in the 4x4! Always felt safe with Usamath, whilst laughing & having a great time too.. couldn’t ask for more! 100% recommend for this alone! We then made it to camp where we were waited on for everything we needed (enhanced package for 50 dirham extra) including all our food, our drinks and shisha. Great entertainment with belly dancers and fire breathers. Usamath also made sure he helped us take plenty of photos together throughout the afternoon/evening which you don’t often get. Worth every penny!

My boyfriend and me were picked up by a Toyota RAV4 car on time around 2 pm. The driver was okay, however we didn't get any info of him what is expecting us on the tour today. The safari tour was a bit short but pretty fun.
After we arrived at the camp, we saw several poor camels which were exploited in a tiny space next to the camp. We could do 2 min riding camel for free, but it hurt us to see how they were forced to go on their knees so often for a mass of tourists which were so crazy to take a photo. So, we rejected that.
After we went in the camp, where we got some instructions about the drinks and dinner later, but mainly the guy wanted us to book a VIP table for 100 AED per person (which we didn't make because we thought that queuing on food is a not a problem for us). After getting some water, we went to have a walk in desert. The dunes were nice, and they seemed to be cleaned regularly. The promised sandboarding was pretty much a joke: the condition of the board is alright, but it had no wax for us and without this you can't slide down the dunes. On the top of that, if you want to go to the higher dunes for a proper sandboarding experience, it can be life-dangerous because safari cars crossed them at the same time. There was no guide or trainer who could assist us in this matter. Having sanboarding as a main reason coming to desert, we've been already disappointed by the tour. When we wanted to pick up some tea or coffee which were available after 5 pm, to take a cup and enjoy a beautiful sunset, we saw huge lines of people and refused drinking it. After sunset, we came back to the camp to use the toilets: it was disgusting to stand there because it already stank 10 meters before you got in. Some sinks were broken and some toilet cabins were full of water on the ground. When we were ready after washroom to eat, we didn't see any stalls with starter because it was already too late to take it and it was cleaned up. We stayed hungry until 7 pm and couldn't enjoy the show on the stage. Without sitting any minute at the table, we were ready at 6:30 to be the first in line to take our dinner.
But when the stalls got open, mass of hundreds of people ran over each other and you could say almost fight for grabbing some food. The organisers just starred at it and shouted: 'Don't run!' There was no safety provided, there were no rules about bringing some order. Before you could enter a little tent with buffet, you had to pass a non-lighted path. As the people were rushing onto the tent, some fell down. People started to stomp on the lying people, some because they didn't care others because they saw it too late or were pushed by the people behind them.
I actually lifted up one man, just to find a terrified girl, which was crying, right under him.
I almost fell down myself by keeping people from further stomping on them. It was really one of the worst experiences in my life.
After this experience we canceled our booking for an overnight stay there and went home. At least we got a partial refund... don't recommend to go there. Especially, not on overcrowded holidays.

DO NOT BOOK! Have done similar tour before and nothing compares, no communication given from any staff, staff grumpy and shouting at people. Please please whatever you do please understand so many other tours are same price and will ensure you have a good time, this group could not care less. Very hard to get anything that was ‘ promised’

The day started with our driver Gulfam picking us up. We then went into the desert where we ate, did a camel ride, then we did the desert safari. The best part of the tour was the desert safari, it is a must do here if you visit Dubai! Our driver Gulfam was very skilled and did a great job driving around in the sand. We then went back to this desert camp and ate food from the buffet and watch a variety of shows from fire dancing to amazing belly dancing. Then we were dropped off at the hotel again. It was definitely worth it!

To start off the pickup was 1.25 hrs later than arranged. The driver was so upset when we expressed our displeasure, he stared to drive very erratically. Hitting speed of 160k and whipping around corners at breakneck speeds. This was before we got anywhere near to the desert. We decided to go straight to the camp and not do any dune bashing. On the way back we had to yell at him to slow down in the desart because he was driving like a lunatic, again. My guess is that he wanted to show off his driving skills but we wanted no part of this. We talked to a gent that was in our vehicle that went on the dune bashing with this driver and he also had to cut short his ride due to the drivers erratic driving.
At the camp we had got time. However the ride to and from the venue really spoilt the whole experience.

Great arrangements for 2 activities:
Desert Safari
Musandam Dhow Tour

All activities were as described. We really had lots of fun.
Both are “must do” when visiting UAE.
The Team was very professional, welcoming and helped a lot to make those times great and bring good memories back home.
Thanks to Jasim for his good organisation.
Michael, Steve, Shami and the others for the cruise.
We surely recommend!

If you are planning a Dubai trip, Desert Safari should be there in your list. There where a lot of agencies that provides the same. I went out with Adventure gate, our guide (Shihab) picked us from Dubai to the desert and had an amazing driver on the sands of the desert. Arabic food where decent and the drop was punctual.

Thank you Shihab it was a great desert dune bash drive and adventure gate for providing such a wow experience.

I researched many Desert Safari websites and decided to choose York tourism. My choice didn’t go wrong. I’ve had a thrilling Desert Safari experience!

Our tour guide Shihab was really awesome. He explained each and everything about the program. And his expert driving skills made the dune bashing a thrilling experience.

If you are planning Desert Safari, I’d recommend them. Their package includes everything from Hotel Pickup/Drop on Land Cruiser, Camel ride, Bbq dinner, free tea/cold drinks etc.
