Full description

Embark on a morning or evening desert safari across the Al Labab sand dunes from Dubai. Choose from a variety of activities, from sandboarding to quad biking, to a BBQ dinner in the desert.

Start your day with hotel pickup in a 4WD vehicle and drive out to the desert with your safari guide. Choose from 4-hour and 7-hour tour options. Take a 25-minute break and enjoy an optional quad bike experience. Then, take a 30-45 minute dune drive across the desert in a 4x4 vehicle.

Admire beautiful 360-degree views of the desert landscape as the sun slowly sets. Try sandboarding, before heading to the desert camp where the 4-hour tour ends. Then, relax with return service to your hotel.

The 7-hour option continues with a visit to a hidden desert camp. Enjoy an Arabic coffee, dates, and Lugamat, a traditional sweet, upon arrival. Hop on a camel for a short ride, decorate your hands with Henna tattoos, or take pictures.

Enjoy a BBQ dinner of kebabs, hummus, and salads with sodas, water, and drinks from the bar. Take in a belly dancing show and Tanura performance. Snap some photos with the Arabian falcons before returning to your hotel in Dubai.

We had a fantastic experience in the desert. Our driver Mr Khan was very pleasant, funny and friendly to talk to. We booked the VIP experience and it was everything we hoped for. The best excursion of our trip. I can highly recommend the company we booked with and our driver. Thank you so much.

Everything went well. I was informed about the pickup before the trip day. My driver picked me from my hotel on time and drove to the desert. Dune bashing was the best, the driver was very experienced, he took pictures of me in the middle of desert. I also did camel ride, and falcon photoshoot. I have done desert tour 2 times before but this one was amazing and memorable. I totally recommend this tour to all and i will come next time with my family. Thank you Fun Tours ❤️

Qamar our tour guide was really wonderful. He made sure we constantly had water, ensured that we were feeling okay during the dune bashing, took some great photos of us in the desert and explained everything thoroughly to us. He was very kind and nothing was too much for him!
