Overview
Inexperienced drivers heading into Dubai’s desert without a guide (not recommended) will probably miss out on activities such as camel rides and dune bashes. Get the very best of the desert all rolled into one on this single, afternoon-and-evening experience. After a dune bash, try sandboarding, camel riding, and more before dinner and live entertainment at a Bedouin-inspired camp. Round-trip transport is included for maximum comfort and convenience.
What to Expect
After an afternoon pickup at your Dubai hotel, head into the desert wilds in a comfortable, air-conditioned 4WD vehicle.
Take in the empty sands and go off-road for a roller-coaster ride around the high dunes. Hold tight as your driver takes you over the slopes, pausing at the top before slipping back down the shifting sands.
Stop at the highest dune to view the sunset before continuing to a Bedouin-style campsite. Hop out here for an afternoon and evening of desert activities and entertainments. Go sandboarding, ride a camel, get a henna tattoo, don Arabian robes for a souvenir photo, and try an optional puff on a shisha (Arabic water pipe).
Stay refreshed with sodas, water, tea, and coffee; and later, feast on a barbecue buffet dinner. As you relax, enjoy belly dancing and tanoura (whirling dervish) shows under the stars before a convenient return transfer to your hotel.

From what I remember the tour operator does say if you suffer with a sore back it isn’t suitable. I don’t think it would be possible to avoid the dune bashing but they may offer other similar trips.
