Amazing experience

Such a great experience, we really enjoyed it.

Richard Faiz is a very experienced and friendly driver 5*

From the pick-up time until the drop-off, i have nothing but good things to say about the experience itself. If you are traveling to Dubai is a must for sure.

Worth the price we paid for it.
Great experience with professional and kind driver

I highly recommend this activity with Ibrahim.

It was an unforgettable experience. I definitely recommend this safari - without it you really can't say you've been to Dubai. First of all, the company Ammar Tours that provided the entire stay. Organization as per the book. Punctuality. It was more than I expected. The route, the barbecue dinner at sunset, the Arab dance show.
Our guide, Mr. Faiz, a very kind and personable man, a true professional. He simply danced on the sand dunes with his Toyota car - Bravo Faiz and we thank you!

Defo worth doing!

The safari sand dune ride was exhilarating and awesomely exciting. Loved it and will be back. Thank you for our driver. He's great fun.

My recent experience with the desert safari was amazing! The sights were breathtaking, the sand was warm, and the sun was shining. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to answer any questions we had and provide us with interesting facts about the desert. The dune bashing was a highlight of the trip and the camel ride was an added bonus. We were even able to enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner in the middle of the desert. I highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a unique and memorable adventure.
Great Experience

We had a wonderful fun time on this tour. The communications with Ammar is clear and we have a wonderful guide-driver Arif. He ensures we have a wonderful time with ample time to soak in the activities, photo takings. Not rush and good size of 6 person in a car for this shared package. Thank you

kristik943, 18-01-2023
Our tour guide Mustafa was very nice and laid back person. During the driving We also learnt from him about local way of living etc. Dune bashing was nice experience and also later the dinner was very good and had many buffet options. On the way to desert We also had about half an hour stop, where You could buy the local scarf and ride ATV for extra expense, but it wasn't pushed. :)
Only maybe negative side was that the apple flavour shisha was included in the price, but they had special designated area to have free shisha, if You want shisha on the table, then You had to pay. A bit strange solution. Otherwise everything was good and would recommend.
Very satisfied
shanaaz007, 17-01-2023
Just finished the desert safari with BBQ dinner via a Get Your Guide booking. Bawa, our guide was 1st class! His driving skills for our dune bashing experience was amazing- he assessed our group well and met our adrenaline, photography, entertainment and tour guide needs effortlessly.
Alexandru_P, 14-01-2023
Excellent tour, excellent and experienced driver, everything was great. I totally recomend this experience.
Good experience in the desert
SylvieF88, 24-12-2022
Thanks to Mohcin our safari guide. We had a good day doing quad, dune bashing, sand boarding. The camel ride is very short (very short distance less than 5 mn). Good night show and BBq dinner.
OK - but over-commercialised
Balazs_M, 17-12-2022
Overall the tour is ok…not much more though. We did this in 2009, and this has since become grossly over-commercialised. No shortage of non-Emirati operators (no offence, but it takes away from the authenticity). Sales people at every corner hassling you. The dunes are somewhat dirty, filled with plastic and rubbish. Next time, I’d consider paying more with a boutique operator allowing a more authentic and personalised experience with smaller groups.
