    First I’d like to make a shoutout to Erixson, our tour guide for this trip. He’s friendly and knowledgeable, and made sure we all made it back in one piece.

    If you’re up for a full-day adventure in Dubai, I would definitely recommend this. You get picked up from your hotel and taken to the desert in a comfortable ride, where you get to ride an ATV for an hour on sand dunes, followed by a sandboarding session. (Note that the price only includes the smaller ATV and not the buggy, which you can upgrade to for an additional 750 AED)

    Then later around sunset you’re taken to a camp, where you get to ride and feed the camels. That’s then followed by a great BBQ dinner, and a show. Finally, we got a chance to take a look through a telescope to see the moon up close, since it was a full moon that night.

    Again, thank you so much Erixson for this fantastic trip. Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Dubai.

    This was an unforgettable excursion!
    The camel ride and the dinner/show were amazing.. even if we did have empathy for our poor camel having to rise up with two men on his/her back!
    Don’t miss it!

    Best experience ever! We ride on sandboards, camels, aaaand crazy 4*4 ride, that even my mother in law enjoyed! Then we came to absolutely gorgeous place in the desert with fireshow, dance show, tasty food and many activities to do. Everyone was so helpful - take photo of us, assist with every question. Can’t wait to repeat this!

    Our guide Nooramin contacted us the day before which was a nice touch. 10 mins before our pick up time, he messaged to say he was outside our hotel. The 4x4 was very clean, comfortable and cool - there was even a small central fridge stocked with water. Nooramin was very friendly and informative, answering any questions we had.
    Once at the Dunes, he checked to see how adventurous we wanted to be - my 5 year old son was with us. His driving skills were excellent and we had such a thrill driving up and down!
    After 20 mins or so we stopped for sandboarding. This too was fun but hard work climbing back up lol. Nooramin took lots of pictures for us which was great!
    The camel ride was nice and easy to do. No hassle from people trying to over sell etc. The guide too pics and video for free on my phone.
    We didn't do the quad biking, but it looked really fun.
    On the journey home Nooramin stopped and bought us tea and juice.
    I would highly recommend Nooramin and this tour 5*

    it s a breathtaking experience, from the moment you get the drone show and sees the balloon getting bigger to the moment you actually go up... just wow
    When you are finally above the clouds and there is no noise just you floating you have an even bigger wow.
    Not to mention our captain Yosh should do stand-up comedy as he was so funny but at the same time gave the feeling that we are super secured.
    Finally the full experience with the land rover trip and the breakfast that was 3 stars you wont regret the amount spent

    This was a fantastic tour! Our guide Nauman was fantastic, provided great commentary and information, took us to all the important sights, and was a great photographer too! We visited Ferrai World on a Saturday and fortunately it was not very busy so were able to do most of the main attractions within the 4 hour period . Highly recommend to anyone visiting Dubai who would like to see Abu Dhabi.

    Our driver was very lovely and such a good driver through the sand dunes. He took lots of pictures for us and made sure we were okay all day. They showed us how to sand board and was very patient with us. We loved every minute. Then had an amazing evening show and wonderful food. Thank you very much

    What an amazing off the charts day we had on our Platinum Heritage Land Rover Desert Safari with our guide Travis. I was very hesitant about the price going into it, but it was worth every penny! This organization is top shelf all the way! Travis was a delight as we learned and talked all day. He really helps you feel a part of your breathtaking surroundings and history. The delicious creative food experience at camp served under the stars with our wonderful server Michael was so romantic as soft local music played. Thoroughly enjoyed the fire show, vintage Land Rovers and how easy they made riding the camels. Cross that off the bucket list. At the end we received and purchased the photos and video compiled by their photographers of your day and amazing drone shots and footage. What a priceless keepsake! It was surreal! Don’t hesitate!
