Our experience at the desert safari was the best by far. We booked a private tour for early morning and our tour guide Naveed came right on time, he was the best tour guide we could’ve asked for… he took care of us and gave us the best experience. We hadn’t booked the quad bikes, but when Naveed took us to that location he kindly advised us which one is the best and rest assured it was the best time, we’re glad we picked the quad bikes as well. The overall experience was excellent and all the staff members were kind and helpful. The Dune Bashing sounds scary, but Naveed was able to make the experience look and feel like a dream! Thank you for a good time! And a special thank you to Naveed for giving us the best time, highly recommend him, he knows his subject thoroughly!

I really enjoyed this tour inaam made us feel very comfortable and safe. He always checked with us if we were ok. The quad, camel and Dunne bashing were great fun. He took loads of great pictures of us. Overall it was a brilliant morning tour. I would recommend it and Inaam as a tour guide :)

This is my second time booking this tour, my first experience was amazing so I decided to do it again and luckily I got the same tour guide as the first time his name is Ansari and he’s the best. He knows the history of Dubai and really makes the experience feel truly special. I would highly recommend
