It was a great tour. Our tour guide picked us up at the hotel at the specified time. During the drive to the desert, he told us some interesting facts about Dubai and Emirates. We were lucky to see many animals before sunrise in the desert. Then he brought us to the beautiful location for the sunrise and prepared breakfast. We tried some funny traditional Dubai coffee. Then we did sandboarding, he allowed us to fully enjoy our time in the desert, without hurrying us up. Then we derived more in the desert and saw a lake with birds. Then he brought us back to our hotel in Dubai. All in all, it was a great experience! We are very happy with our tour and thank a lot to our amazing tour guide.

Amazing to visit the tranquil unspoilt desert at this time, perfect sand dunes save for a few hooves having left their mark. The sunrise with a picnic breakfast was amazing and being the only jeep and people around felt even more special. The sand boarding was good fun too, although getting back up the dunes was considerably harder than going down…haha The dune bashing was extremely fun, with the expert guide making it seem effortless! I think he had the “scream if you want to go faster” mantra but that made it even more exciting. The only aspect that stopped the trip from getting five stars is the wildlife aspect, we understand it’s nature and cannot be guaranteed, we saw a few geese at the Lake and a couple of deer before sunrise but did feel like you’d never really see anything more and the “wildlife” tag was shoe horned in. Don’t let this put you off though still the best way to see and experience the desert!

Absolutely perfect sunrise desert trip! Our guide was extremely kind, helpful and considerate. He helped us spot gazelles, onyx and told everything about the place. The views were stunning, unreal sunrise, the guide was such a good driver and made dune bashing so fun. Also stopped by a lake and everything was perfect, 100% recommended and very good value for money.
