Driver was excellent. Pick up on time from your hotel. First stop at a meet up point where you can rent a quad for 30min to 1h. Then it’s time for dune bashing followed by sandboarding. Sunset in the desert then drive to the camp site where you will have camel rides, shows and buffet style food. Return to the hotel (1h drive).

The tour had everything I wanted and I recommend people to go with this tour instead of looking for cheaper options. The guide (Matti) seemed like he genuinely enjoys showing amazing things about the desert. He is a very comfortable person to be around and he is also a very good photographer. Go with the 7 hour one, the tour is definitely worths the money and time, this was the best thing I’ve done in Dubai. But just make sure that you put correct mobile numbers when you are registering, or call up the office when you get a new SIM in UAE so they can pick you up on time.
