Full description

Experience the beauty of the desert sand dunes and the thrill of sandboarding on this unique Land Cruiser tour from Dubai. Keep cool in an air conditioned vehicle and enjoy cold mineral water on your tour. 

Your morning safari begins with a pick-up at your hotel in a 4x4 Land Cruiser. Head off with your local guide into the desert, just a 30-45 minute ride from Dubai. Along the way, the driver will take you up and down the dunes in the morning sun. Marvel at the beauty of the desert at this time of day. The first activity gets the adrenalin flowing, bashing some high Red Desert dunes, driving up and down in a Land Cruiser. Afterwards there's an opportunity to try sandboarding, one of the most exciting sporting activities in the desert. After your sandboarding experience, you will be transferred back to your hotel.

Great communication from the guide . He was on time, polite and ensured we had a good time. We didn’t do the sand boarding but others did and they enjoyed it. Make sure you wear trainers as you do sink in the sand when walking on it. Also if you suffer from travel sickness be aware as you are jolted around in the jeep a lot as you go over the desert.

The guide was ok, but he did not talk much. The stop in the desert was horrible, dirty and old- but the people working there were very nice. When we arrived there we where told we needed to buy scarfs to cover our head, 50 diram each. We booked pick up at 10 O'clock, but when we received the confirmation it said 7 O' clock.. In the end the guide said he could pick us up at 9, but at 8.40 he arrived at the hotel... Then we spend 40 minutes in the car picking up other people, before we finally where on our way to the desert.

Great!! The guide arrived very punctually and, until reaching the desert, he told us many curiosities and details of Dubai, so the trip was very enjoyable. The ride through the desert, through the dunes, was hilarious. Then we did sandboarding and the truth is that we weighed it great! A 10 for the guide for his kindness!
