Departure Time

3:30 PM
After pickup from your central Dubai hotel, relax into your air-conditioned 4x4 and journey into the desert. On route, chat to your guide, who acts as your driver, and hear fascinating stories about Dubai and the desert around you.

Go off road and head into an area of dunes for an exciting dune bash. Hold tight as your 4x4 ploughs up the sandy slopes before skidding and sliding back down.

Continue to a beautiful, Bedouin-style desert camp nestled in the heart of the dunes. Hop out of your 4x4 into the torchlit grounds and enjoy a revitalizing Arabic coffee and fresh dates. If you wish, try an aromatic shisha (Arabic water pipe) along with your coffee.

Duly refreshed, take off on a quad bike ride. Listen to a safety briefing and instructions, pull on a provided helmet, and zip and zoom around the camp and desert terrain.

Visit a camel farm and enjoy a short ride on one of these hardy desert animals. Afterward, admire some examples of delicate sand art, and if you wish, get a henna tattoo etched onto your hands or feet.

As darkness falls, return to the camp for a delectable barbecue dinner. Menus may vary, but typical dishes include shawarma (spit-roast meat wraps), Arabic salads and kebabs teamed with complimentary sodas and additional drinks (own expense) from the bar.

During your meal, enjoy a glittering belly dance show and watch ‘tanoura’ dancers spin, whirling dervish-style, across the floor, in time to rhythmic Arabian music.

Finally, return to Dubai by 4x4 and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.

This is a must do !!! Brief Atv ride in the beginning , brief camel and photo op session, Buffett dinner , Shisha , henna and nice traditional shows, fire show and belly dance. Not to mention the shisa!! Muhammad our driver/tour guide was the best !!!! He made sure we were good through out the whole experience. He was very helpful and pleasant. He knows how to work the sand, you’re in for a treat on the way in to the desert ! But Mohammad has you covered ! Highly recommend , Worth it.

Booked this tour last minute and was very happy in the end. Thomas was our guide and was the perfect host. We were running a bit late due to slow elevators in our hotel and he was completely understanding, as were the other guests in the vehicle. On the way to the desert Thomas pointed out sights and gave us some Dubai history, he even answered our random questions. Thank Thomas! We drove through the desert and although the thrill seeker in me wished it was a bit faster, it was extremely enjoyable. The camel ride and the quad bike were both equally fun. They each only lasted a few minutes, but were just right for my family. The dinner and shows at the camp were cool, the fire show was the best in my opinion. This was definitely a memorable experience for me and my family.

This tour was absolutely beautiful & one for the books. The staff are amazing & caring! In addition, the desert wasn’t as hot as the city. There was a good breeze flowing. I would do this tour again.

This trip was the first experience we had on arrival in Dubai, and I can gladly confirm that it was a fantastic way to kick off our holiday. Ghulan was extremely patient, flexible and professional throughout the entire trip, and really made the experience so seamless. From the dunes drive, to the camel ride, quad bikes and dinner show, we really couldn’t have asked for anything more. This will always be an experience to remember and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to travel to Dubai.
