A desert safari is something which is recommended to pretty much every traveler visiting Dubai, but which one to choose can be confusing. I read that group tours are nowhere near as good as private tours, but the difference in price is huge. So having read positive reviews of this one with Orient tours, I decided on this. Put simply,... More

Good overview of the city of Dubai, with a competent and attentive guide. The good - great taster, knowledgable guide, interesting stops The bad - it felt long... but that's in us, we don't shop much. The tour took us paste a private carpet resaler, which was interesting but took too long; like the souks. Recommendation - do it if... More

Took my wife and 2 children (11 and 15) on the half day desert safari and thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip. The driver was very experienced and ensured that everyone was comfortable from start to end. My son wasn't too sure about hitting he dunes, even though the rest of us were giggling like small kids. The driver adapted his... More

We didn't really know what to expect when we were picked up in SUV's in Sharjah. We were part of a conference and this was one of the excursions we could pick. We did not regret it. It was one of the highlights of our trip! The 4x4 experience in the desert was fun and we laughed the entire time.... More

Our driver picked us up exactly when he said he was going to at our hotel for the desert safari. We drove about an hour outside of the city and started the tour with some dune bashing with about 15 other suv's. We were able to get some great pictures after in the desert as the sun was going down.... More

We took the Super Saver Dubai Tours with Orient Tours which included the Desert Safari and the Dubai City Tour. The tour group we went with, Orient Tours, was amazing. The Desert Safari was so well planned with a new attraction or experience at every turn. We got to try Dune Bashing, Sand Boarding, getting henna done, trying shisha and... More

I took the Dubai City Half-Day Site-seeing Tour. It's a 4 hour tour which includes Burg Al Arab, The Jumeriah Mosque, The Dubai Museum, A water taxi ride & the spice and gold souks. It is a good tour and it takes you to "old" Dubai which most tourist probably don't get to see, outside of the souks. There are... More

This was one of the best activities that I had the chance to experience while being in Dubai. Great value for money, excellent punctuality and good opportunity to meet some other people or tourists. Our driver was amazing, but just a bit shy. Some music while riding on the dunes would have been pretty cool. Yet, I do highly recommend... More
