We booked the trip a day before via the hotel.The details were clearly explained and the pick up time was correctly specified (and double checked on the day of the trip). The driver was rather quiet, but spoke good English and answered our questions. Dune bashing was fun, but it's not a good idea to have lunch right before the... More

Planet tour dubai, is the best Dubai Desert Safari company with experienced drivers and world-class desert camp. You will be collected from your address at 3pm by one of their professional English speaking tour guides and head towards a fully-equipped desert camp where you will be greeted by ‘welcome drinks’ and Arabian sweets. You’ll be given the chance to really... More

Was booked via Big Bus Tours, and it seems third party booking is more expensive then going direct. It was much less then I expected, because I have done the BBQ with another company two years prior. We paid 220AED p.p for 30min desert drive, 10min camel ride and 5min sand boarding I would suggest going for the BBQ because... More

As it was our first time in Dubai we wanted to visit the desert & experience the sand dunes & camels!! This was the perfect way!! Mohammed Jamil our tour guide (amazing) picked us up from our Hotel & drove us to the desert. We then hit the sand dunes & had an exhilarating drive through them in the 4x4.... More

The entire trip went smooth - timely and friendly pick-up - proper bus conditions - following pre-defined schedule and provided interesting information and insight to the local life during the journey. Hence, Day Trip to Abu Dhabi was a success story ...

It can't get better than this, I had the best experience in the dessert with the breathtaking dune drive. Our driver was charming and he's so good at what he does, he is equipped with all the information about the dessert. We enjoyed the dance at the camp, not forgetting the mouth watering buffet. Planet Tours... You rock.

We did this tour with our young kids, almost 3 and 6 year old. Because of the age we had to hire a private driver, but it was worth it! Didn't want to miss this in the world. Our son kept saying; this is so cool, best day ever! Dune bashing with a couple of photo stops, amazing! While I'm... More

Bad experience and advice to choose another. We booked through the hotel the day before and it was the only operator to have availability (later we understood why). The afternoon departure for the safari 4x4 with the driver arrived 45 minutes behind schedule. Starting and running like crazy on the highway to try to recover the lost time. When we... More

Basics. Collected from hotel (Dubai Marina) - 60 minute drive to the dunes - sand driving through the dunes - barbecue dinner - drive back to hotel. Overall about 5 hours end to end. The dune driving is good and the barbecue dinner also reasonable but the entertainment at the dinner is very limited (about 10 minutes in total) and... More
