“VIP Abu Dhabi Tour”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Horrible! Waste of time and money!!! This was supposed to be a VIP trip with private driver, (Mohammad) who was local and knew all the history of Abu Dhabi. Nothing was farther from the truth. The trip was just my husband, our friend and I to tour the city, visit a palace, spend time in the the mosque and the only thing Mohammad wanted to do was push a private agenda of shopping, taking us to a "surprise" venue (pushy vendors). Knight Tours gave us an itinerary of 12 places listed with only 2 posted as a"drive-by". However, outside of stopping at Shiekh Zayad's Mosque and the Emirates Palace Hotel, the entire day was a drive-by and lightning fast at that, as it was a weekend so minimal traffic. The afternoon ended where we are forced to eat at some "buffet", not at one of the may other restaurants available! This is another form of revenue for Knights Tours as they wget a kick-back of 25% for tourists they bring. I would NOT use Knight Tours for a VIP or any other experience. I've been on multiple with Arabian Adventures and they provide exactly what they promise, no bait and switch. Save your money and go a reputable company's trip. 1800AED and 8 hours of my life wasted!

“Fabulously entertaining!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Went with a couple of friends on Knight Tours and our awesome chauffeur/guide Ali. First up dune bashing.... scary as hell and just funtastic! Next up the activities at the camp. We got to ride camels and dune buggy's. The sun was just setting making the atmosphere inside the camp amazing. There were free snacks and drinks available... you could get hena tattoos done, dress up in local arab attire, there was also a drinks and sheesha bar and to end the night a fantastic local dinner/buffet and belly dance performances.
All is all, a fabulous experience and a must on your dubai 'to do' list.

“Desert Drive”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I was in Dubai recently and my friends planned for a Desert Drive with a company called Knight Tours. Their price was very reasonable when compare to the services they provided. They picked us up at around 3pm and and took us far from the city into the deepest deserts and there were huts and small ground with carnival right in the middle of the desert. Camel Ride, Dune bashing, bbq kabobs and then as the night falls there is belly dancing till midnight. All in all an unforgettable event in dubai.

“Professional, safe and all up, a fabulous experience”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We are experienced desert 4wd people from Australia & we found our driver really knew how to handle the vehicle - we were mighty impressed! The camp after the dune bashing is very pleasant and well laid out. The staff are extremely pleasant and the food is fantastic. The grumps who didn't appreciate the food were un- adventurous eaters! It was fresh, fresh, fresh but Middle Eastern - you are in the Middle East! The entertainment was really fabulous & considering this company is $30 cheaper than Arabian Adventures, you would be hard pressed to find better value for money. Really, it was a lovely experience. We participated in the short camel ride & had our hands henna painted - all part of a great experience. All this for the price of a dinner in town!!!
