Imran was such a great tour guide. He picked us up right on schedule was super polite and punctual. He took us for the ATV, the sand board and camel ride and took pictures of us all the way threw our tour. He was on top of everything going on from offering us water to making sure we were the first one to grab food to asking if we wanted anything else before leaving the camp area. He was absolutely welcoming. This tour is definitely recommended.

After pickup from your hotel in a 4x4 Land Cruiser, you’ll head off with your local guide to the desert, just 45 minutes from Dubai. Upon reaching the Lahbab Desert, you’ll have about 20 minutes to relax. For the more adventurous, you can try quad biking, which is an optional activity. Once your 4x4 vehicle is ready, you will hit the desert for about 30-45 minutes of dune bashing. Feel your stomach leap as the Land Cruiser drives up and down the tall red dunes. Marvel at how the vehicle tackles impossibly steep inclines and the uneven terrain of the sand.

Abbas is the man! I booked this tour super last minute but everything starting from contact to pick up and everything during the tour and drop off went so smoothly. Abbas is very attentive, professional and experienced. You will be very well looked after in his hands. I was also recommended a very nice restaurant to go to after the tour and it sure exceeded my expectations! 10/10 would recommend

We had two drivers. The first one was really late to pick us at the hotel. They asked us to be ready at 2:30, but the driver only arrived at 3:45pm. The second driver, Alam, was really fun and took very nice photos in the desert.
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Dubai, then start your journey to the peaceful desert surroundings for a sunset experience of a lifetime.

The trip started very well with the driver picking me up at my place right on time. Unfortunately, due to road traffic we arrived a bit tight. The camel ride was truly what I had hope for. Experiencing the little bit of the desert was a great experience. Afterwards we went to the camp. It was quite humid and hot, and this is not the fault of anyone, but it was very different of what I had just experience in the desert. Overall the food was very good. I wish I could have had a second plate. The show could have been a little better as I was expecting belly dancing but the fire dancer was truly the highlight of the show. All in all, it's a great activity if you want to experience a bit of the desert.
After a prompt pick up from Dubai port in an air-conditioned vehicle, transfer to the Lehbab Desert. Begin your tour of this stunning landscape with a quad bike ride after a quick safety briefing. Continue the ride across the red dunes for the next 60 minutes. For an extra adventure, try your hand at sandboarding as you stand on a wooden board and glide down the dunes. Next, head over to a typical desert camp, and familiarise yourself with an array of Bedouin specialties. Experience various activities such as henna tattooing, shisha pipe smoking, and dressing up in traditional Arabian attire. Take a short camel ride around the camp premises. When you return back to the camp, enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner buffet accompanied by a live Tanoura dance and Khaleeji dance show. At the end of the performance, return back to Dubai port where you will be dropped off at the cruise ship termin...
ATV Driving is fun but not as easy as it looks. I found it hard to stay on the road and I actually derailed a few times because I went down the hill. Make sure you press a lot of gas when driving- that is the only way you will drive smoothly. If you ultimately fail at driving the ATV to the destination (sand boarding) like me, then you will ride in a car that will bring you to sand boarding and back to the starting point as well. The car ride was very fun! As for the camel ride, it was pretty short- I was in the front so it wasn’t that bumpy- I heard it was bumpy in the back. It says in the voucher we bought that we can feed the camels but that wasn’t available- the camels were wearing masks. Also the bbq buffet was yummy and there’s a lot you can experience at the camp like henna tattoo, buying souvenirs, taking pics with a falcon, trying Arabic tea/coffee, and there’s like 3 performances. I wish there was belly dancing but there wasn’t :( but overall it was still a great experience!

My girlfriend and I had the most amazing desert experience with our guide Alam! He picked us up in our hotel and we directly connected and talked a lot! He told us a lot about Dubai and explained the things we were going to do. This was our second time in the desert in Dubai but this time was very special to us. We were 4 people in the car and enjoyed the trip. It was like a private tour just for us 4 :-) It couldn’t have been any better than this. Special thanks to Alam, we highly recommend him and this activity!
It was a great trip! Really enjoyed the whole experience. Our tour guide Rashid was absolutely wonderful, picked us up on time, took really good care of us and made sure we all had a fun time. The sunset was beautiful, so it was the perfect time to go, we took lots of photos. Highly recommend the experience and the tour guide.
We had an amazing day in the safari. Our tour guide Thilanga was great, he made sure we had a great time and he took some great photos of us. I highly recommend this experience.
