The activity itself is brilliant! The 4x4 ride is a very good feeling because of a lot of bumps and descents. Then it goes very quickly, the camels, the falcon, and we arrive there for the mini camel ride, the sand boarding which is nice to do, and then the evening continues with the dancers and the buffet which is rather not bad . Soft drinks were offered

a must do!

great experience, well organized. they come to pick you up to take you to the desert, and there the adventure begins! truly beautiful experience, first in the car on the dunes, then you arrive at the campsite where you can eat (all included in the price), you can do sandboarding, quad biking, get on the camel ... then there are the shows! really recommended! ps. for the faint of stomach, I recommend staying in front of the car, because the tour in the dunes can be difficult !!!

A ''must do'' activity in Dubai. Excellent, memorable experience.

Had read a few negative comments, but we were completely surprised and delighted. The dune drive was brilliant (with a very skilled driver). The camp offered henna tattoos, holding a falcon, and the other bits and pieces. The food was tasty, Belly dancing entertaining and the whole experience was excellent value for money. We will remember it forever. And we loved the surprise at the very end !!
