Bought by internet, when we were at home yet, 6000km away. Next day got email with question where do I stay to set pick up location. I day before received what's up message with details of pick up time and contact from our guide. Guide picked us up from arranged location. Amazing! As to the trip, 3 stages: 1) desert Safari 2) quad ride (optional) 3) sand boarding 4) camel ride Desert Safari great if you like extreme ride. Advice: do not eat too much breakfast or take medicine if you suffer car sick. It is really extremely and great! As to quad ride stop, it was optional for us, extra paid. Just wait 20 min and the ride is continued. As to sand boarding - for us it was too short. I thought we will do it at the end of the trip, so we skied only twice. Two advices: ask the guide to repeat as many times as you wish. 2nd advice:buy sand masks or scarf, because in the desert there is a heavy wind with sand. So you cannot breath without! And get As tall shoes as you can.
Sam (our tour guide) was excellent. He was informative, helpful, attentive and polite. He pointed out interesting places as we drove through Dubai. He took pictures for the whole group and made the experience even more special with his personal detail. He got us all chatting and when one of our party took unwell as the motion of the trip didn’t agree with her he was considerate and kind. He used distraction (talking to the unwell person about their job, family, hobbies) and kept them calm until we left the desert. The whole day was enjoyable and a must for visitors to Dubai.
We had a great trip with James. He was knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole tour. The customer service was excellent, we initially booked a morning tour but we were left waiting for much longer than the stated time. To make up for that we were upgraded to a evening BBQ and this time the pick up (by James) was prompt and at the time expected.
Just amazing from start to finish! We booked a private tour and were messaged the day before to confirm all the arrangements. The driver for the tour was Munaf and he was so friendly and lovely with our son who was 9 years old. He had so much knowledge about Dubai and the area but was full of ideas and very sweet to us all.
We had a really great time and we also had a lot of magnificent views on the desert. Our guide Zakir made our tour unforgettable with his dune bashing and we also enjoyed cammel ride. Recommend to everybody who is still thinking about the trip.
