Full description
Buggy Safaris offers a new dimension to off-road exploring. Ride one of the twin-seater, 800cc buggies and set off on this unique adventure around the Dubai Desert. Explore the region’s majestic sand dunes, climbing up and over peaks and valleys, and taking in the amazing scenery.

The tour was an exciting experience. We would be picked up from the hotel on time. The guide Mohammed was very friendly and helpful. We had a nice chat on the drive and there was Karak tea. Arrived at the meeting point, the guide changed. He was also friendly and concerned about safety. We took our time and there was still time for a nice conversation, including photos in the desert. Great value for money. We recommend

The pickup was on time & the driver was very friendly. On the way he told us a few more things about the Sheikh. The buggy ride was a lot of fun. Halfway through there was a photo stop and you could pet camels if you wanted. Then the drivers were changed. We definitely recommend buying a towel for AED 50 so you don't get sand on your face from the people in front. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

Super great tour!! Our driver picked us up at the hotel very punctually at 6:30 a.m. and told us a lot about Dubai on the way to the desert. We were very lucky to be the only ones, so we drove the tour through the desert alone with the guide. Fantastically beautiful sunrise, total silence. Our guide took very professional photos and videos of us with my phone. A tip was of course very welcome. I 100% recommend the tour!
