A must do when visiting Dubai

If you only do 1 excursion while in Dubai make sure this is the 1 you do. A truly unforgettable experience from start to finish. A special thanks to our host Aamerr who was amazing & went out his way to ensure we had a great time. Taking into account the duration & experiences you encounter this excursion offers tremendous value for money. I would definitely recommend taking the VIP dining option, what a feast! Many thanks for making such a memorable trip.
Perfect way to spend a day in the desert!
maggiemeilan, 18-09-2022
From start to finish this was an amazing experience.

Communication was instant, pick up punctual and easily coordinated. All the activities were conducted with safety taken into consideration and ticked all the boxes for a great cultural experience.

It was really the personal touches I’ll take from this tour. Many thanks to our wonderful guide Rafeeq who was kind and patient, especially with my daughter who’s prone to particularly nasty travel sickness and heat migraines. He modified things to make sure she was comfortable and was happy to stop driving at any point to give her a break; we were very appreciative of that.
We loved the desert safari and can highly recommend it. We packed so much into the time, with our favourite parts being the sand boarding, camel riding and meeting the falcon.
Thank you Rafeeq for such a wonderful time you’re a credit to your organisation.
One of the best tours we ever had.
Adem S, 16-09-2022
Excellent communication and perfect execution of the program provided. We definitively recommend this tour to our friends.
Great experience

Best tour guide
Curious491307, 16-09-2022
Our tour guide and driver Nabeel was the best. He made sure we had the best experience. He made the travel fun. We enjoyed everything.
A fantastic day out
Djamel M, 11-10-2022
We were pickup up from our hotel at 1:45pm by our fantastic driver and guide for the day - Rafeeq!

We drove out to our first stop in the desert where we purchased an additional dune buggy ride which was a lot of fun - we were guided through the desert at speed by a guy on a quad bike and stopped for some pictures.

We then got picked up again by Rafeeq and drove around the desert in the 4×4 and did some sand boarding.

After that we drove to another desert location where the camp is. There we fed and rode a camel, tried some local tea/coffee, took pictures with a falcon and then got seated for the evening meal. The food was great - highly recommended.
After that we then took our seats for the evenings entertainment that included music, dancing and fire dancing and breathing - all very impressive.

After that Rafeeq drove us home and were back at our hotel just after 9pm.
Rafeeq was great at all times - making sure everyone was accounted for and making all instructions clear to us so we knew what the plan was and where to meet at all times.

Awesome Desert Safari
tgshare, 09-10-2022
Awesome guide and awesome experience. Highly recommend. We added the dune buggy and also the camel ride. The weather was perfect in December. Food and mint tea were delicious at the camp site. If you want the best guide, ask for Zahid!
Safari day/night trip
Dmytro V, 20-12-2022
I have traveled a little bit in my life and took a few excursions here and there. This was my first time in Dubai and hands down this was one of the best excursions of my life mainly because of Osama. When booking this tour ask the management to call Osama to pick you up. Will never regret this trip.
Thank you for a great day!!!!
Family fun in the desert
juliekF5648XT, 19-12-2022
Shihab was an excellent guide throughout : sandbashing, sandboarding and camel riding were lots of fun and in full safety with a great guide.

Al Lahbab desert tour with buggy and Al Khayma Desert Camp
FelixLoo, 11-12-2022
On 21 November, my family of four had an enjoyable Al Lahbab desert tour and Al Khayma Desert Camp visit with our excellent guide- Mr. Abid Wahid. We could feel his passion for his work and he shared many histories and stories about UAE. It was our first desert tour which included dune bashing, sandboarding, activities and buffet dinner at the impressive Al Khayma Desert Camp. We also did the buggy ride driven by my 16 year old boy, at an additional of AED900.
Great overall experience
rizwanomer, 09-12-2022

ZakithiMgilija, 05-01-2023
Premium service all round!

Our driver Siddik was awesome! He gave us quite the extreme adrenaline dessert safari and is a great photographer! Thank you Siddik!

The dinner was on point with meals from the Emirates, Morocco and Arabia; fresh flavourful food with awesome deserts.
Entertainment was varied and catered for all from sandboarding, camp welcome snacks to the beautiful henna! The best part was the fire ball show.
Oh... And I had the best group of peeps in our car from Australia and India!

The package is definitely value for money and well organised. It will be part of my best memories for life!
Phenomenal experience

An Evening in the Dubai Desert
angelabT726VB, 11-01-2023
We had the pleasure of having Rafeek as our guide. He really was great—answered all our questions and offered to take plenty of photos of me and my partner and made sure we tried different things at the dinner. This was probably one of my favorite nights in Dubai because it was nice to get away from the city and see more cultural things. Highlights were sandboarding, camel riding and trying all the different cultural foods. Oceanair seems to be very professional and I would recommend doing this tour if you are going to Dubai.
sckb21, 11-01-2023
A brilliant experience, loved by the whole family. Our guide Naveed was a superstar, and took great care in ensuring we had an enjoyable time.
Very enjoyable!
567aksharas, 24-01-2023
This tour was well worth the money - our driver Gamal was very friendly, considerate and did not rush us with each activity. He guided us very patiently through everything, even taking lots of photos in the dunes. The food was lovely, taking into account the vegetarian and vegan members of our party and desserts were incredible. Would recommend this tour to everyone!
An amazing adventure
gordanad512, 24-01-2023
It was such an adventure.Our tour guy Rashid was professional pleasent, friendly and helpful.I had a lots of fun and I will remember this amazing experience for the rest of my life.

Thank you Rashid for everything you have done to make the day so special and unforgettable.
The best desert adventure ever!!!
849svetlanar, 24-01-2023
Everything went so smooth, from purchasing the tickets online to the company sending us updates on WhatsApp phone number provided.
They provided all the details of the tour, what clothes to wear etc

we did the tour end of January so I appreciated the fact that they told us to bring winter jackets which were very helpful because it it was very cold after sunset in the desert

Our Tour guide, Rashid was absolutely amazing. He picked us up from out hotel on time, he was very friendly, positive and informative. Even the drive to the desert was fun because he was so enthusiastic and entertaining

The adventure itself was so nicely organised. The sand dune bashing was incredibly entertaining, camel rides, hena tatoos…
Rashid was very kind, explaining everything taking photos of us, guiding us…. On our way back to hotel, he even stopped at 9 o’clock in the city for us to watch the fireworks.

He was going above and beyond, and he certainly made this adventure absolutely memorable!!

The Safari, barbecue, dinner was the best Buffet ever, three different cuisines,plenty of food, excellent charcoal BBQ, sweets.
Then three-part show was amazing..

Overall, this was 10 out of 10 experience, and I will definitely do it again when I next visit Dubai

A special, thank you to this lovely guy Rashid!!!
Desert tour
aramiso2016, 23-01-2023
Our guide for the desert tour was RASHID. He is an excellent driver and a perfect tour guide. All the day he take care about his guests. In every minute we feel safe. He and his company is very professional. You feel like you are a friend. For tomorrow I booked a tour with a boat by the same company.
Great experience with a wrong company
dogusk2023, 26-01-2023
Company sent a 3rd party car / driver to the safari. Driver was nice and professional but the vehicle was below expected standards and had a different logo on the doors while other cars had perfectly matching corporate logos with drivers in their corporate uniforms. Looks like our tour was directed to another company as the main company cars / drivers were oberbooked.
