I would defo pay the money to get picked up and dropped of by a 4x4. The driver was also on... More

Worst desert safari I've ever experienced! They were 1.5 hours late for fetching us - by the time we made it to the desert, the safari in the dunes lasted 20 minutes MAXIMUM! They also told us that we didn't have time to take photos in the desert and dropped us off at the safari camp... We waited 30 minutes... More

While offering they informed us for a 25 mins desert drive, which includes camel ride, Sand boarding, shesha, Starters and non veg buffet. Unlimited soft drinks and tea coffee. Here's what happened: Terrible management. When you reach their camp it's like we have to beg for everything as if they are giving it for free. The safari drive last only... More

My daughter who works in Dubai booked this trip as a special treat for us, her parents as we had not seen her for over 6 months. This was our first trip to Dubai so was looking forward to this safari. She paid 130 dirhams per person totalling 390 dirhams for all three of us. This price was for the... More

The worst desert safari experience. Pick up time was 2,30 and they showed up at 4,30, only 90 minutes before sunset, ruining the entire experience.

In their site was an instruction that after u are done booking u will get an email confirmation. I did not get an email confirmation even the following day and their site shows that they have...

We were picked up from The Arabian Courtyard Hotel around 3pm. There were five tourists in our group and unfortunately my husband and I were in the very back seat which I found claustrophobic. We are four wheel drive enthusiasts and so really looking forward to getting into the sand dunes. When we got out of town, the actual four... More
