Full description

Avoid the urban sprawl of Dubai on an action-packed experience in the desert. Drive across the dunes and visit a traditional Arabic Bedouin camp. Head to a Bedouin camp and experience the traditional Arabic reception of coffee and dates on arrival. See the camp at your own pace, cover yourself in traditional Arabic clothes, and take pictures. Have the opportunity to ride a camel and stop across the desert to watch the beautiful sunset. Enjoy having henna painted on your hands or feet.

Absolutely amazing day out. We thought 8hrs would be to long but the day went so fast due to being actioned packed from start to finish. Buggy racing in the desert then the driver took us off roading in the 4x4, sand boarding, camel riding & then finished off with a bbq & a live belly dancing & fire breathing performance. Would highly recommend for a family day out.

Our private driver Hussain was excellent. The ride was trilling but safe. He helped us a lot with pictures in the desert and really took an effort and interest to capture great shots with his phone and WhatsApp them to us later. Great time. Tip, get the quad bikes great fun.

We chose this tour because we didn't want to share this experience with the crowd. Hussein, our personal tour guide, picked us up at the hotel on time. Then we went on, about 50 minutes, to a meeting point where you could rent buggies or quads. Then after about 30 minutes we went into the desert for dune bushing. Hussein, best driver in the desert, let his skills run wild! An unforgettable experience for our kids too. There was a sunset photo stop which of course was stunning. Then we went to the desert camp. Unfortunately, there were a looooot of other groups and the camel rides, which our kids were really looking forward to, only went around once in a circle. The BBQ was delicious but just too many people around it for us. All in all a nice experience, our kids will not forget it and again a big thank you to HUSSEIN, who is very friendly and an excellent driver!
