Dubai Desert Adventure Half-Day Tour
From USD 150.00
Most Dubai desert excursions take up the afternoon and evening, with a campsite dinner and entertainment into the night. This tour treads a different path with a morning adventure that leaves the rest of the day free. Activities include a longer-than-standard dune bash, camel riding, and sandboarding plus two attractions often missed by other tours: falconry and quad biking. Hotel pickup and drop-off provide the finishing, all-inclusive touch.
What to Expect
After early pickup from your Dubai hotel, venture into the desert in a climate-controlled 4WD vehicle for your morning of activities. Sodas and water are provided throughout to keep you refreshed.
En route, listen as your driver-guide tells tales of the desert, its history, and its habitat. Then, hold tight as you head off road for a high-speed dune bash. 
Next, continue to a camel farm for a camel ride across the sands. Then, grab a sandboard and have a go surfing the steep dunes. After carving down the slopes, watch a display of traditional Bedouin falconry, and pose for a photo with one of the beautiful birds.
Your activities continue with an exciting quad bike ride. Hop onto an ATV and, after instructions, race over the desert, churning up clouds of sand as you go.
Your desert experience finishes back at the departure point in Dubai.
