Everything was great! The buffet was really yummy they had a professional chef there, get the lamb For the dune bashing in the car, if you get a little car sick / nauseous maybe don't sit all the way in the back of the car Camel riding was awesome!! Make sure you keep your phone on you to take pictures! The henna painting was really cool, Asma (hopefully I'm spelling her name right) was really sweet and did a great job! Make sure to get it done before dinner The dances and fire shows we're also incredible Had a great time

This was such a fun day! The price was really reasonable for all of the different activities you get to try, and how taken care of you are throughout the day. From getting picked up and dropped off, to having candid photos taken all day, to the laughs and great conversation in the car, you really are in good hands with these guys. We were lucky to have Shihab as our guide for the day and he was really lovely and warm. The quad biking is super fun and you won't want to leave, the dune bashing is pretty intense and not for the faint-hearted, the sand boarding is also really fun but quite short, the BBQ dinner is really fantastic, shisha and henna included, great photo opps, great all round. Must do in Dubai!

This was excellent, thanks to Yasir & his partner. We first left the city and got a little history along the way. The first stop was the quads in a controlled area. They have a fenced-in area where you can ride on the sand over a few small hills and one to do a jump. That was okay. Next was the dune bashing. It is no joke. If you have any type of motion sickness or back pains/injuries, DO NOT DO THIS. Too late once started. There are a lot of twists, turns, bumps, and jerks. It was fun. The sand surfing was a new & fun experience. Then we headed to the camp for the camel ride, which is short but you can get back in line to ride again. You only go 100 yards and back. Lastly, the camp offers delicious tea and donut holes before dinner. They have hand painting and shopping also. Make sure you bargain for a good price. They do not give the Tax-Free document out there so make sure the prices are low. The food was great. The fire dancer was wonderful. Do the earliest tour to beat the crowds.
