    Good Experience

    Was picked up on time, but then had to travel to two separate hotels to pick others up. No problem with that except it took a very long time for both the pickup and dropoff of guests. Once we were out the experience was very fun, the guides were great and overall a wonderful experience. Please note that the entire experience took 6 hours, not the 3 that we signed up for. Again, not an issue but something that needs to be known.

    Adventurous in a tourist way - but still loads of fun

    Khan, our guide, did a great job informing us extensively about our tour, the city and giving us some Insider tips of Dubai during the end of the tour. He and his brother were great motivating our rather tired group to pose for some memorable photos in the desert. We left for the desert early in the morning and returned at around 11 am. We had great fun in the desert on our bikes (even though it would've been more fun and exciting to leave the track more often), the sand boarding does require a bit of experience and balance - it helps if you've tried snowboarding before. The camel ride may have been a touch too "touristy", but I guess if you're up to all independent traveling and venturing into the wild on your own, this wouldn't be the place you'd be looking for anyway. All in all great fun for anyone seeking a first but not extremely thrilling impression of the Desert outside of Dubai.
