Had an amazing time with Desert Rangers. I booked the 1 hour dune buggy, got to ride out into the desert with a guide driving a dune buggy. THIS is how to see it!
The compound is as you would expect, sit and smoke some shisha and enjoy some beverages until dinner time. Had a chance to get some photos of the sun going down over the desert. Dinner was amazing, and the entertainment out of this world! I've seen other belly dancing shows, this was great. Had an awesome driver, Abu Bakkar. The drivers also cook and serve dinner, and so running into him he always had a smile and kind word.
Reading all the negative reviews, many are from people who had issues with drivers. If they are late it's because they run on Mid-East time, and let's face it, Dubai's not exactly traffic free. Not all the drivers speak english, so you what may seem rude should not be taken that way. Would definately book again!
