We visited Dubai for a week and this was by far the best experience we did in Dubai. Abdul was super insightful about the UAE history and had answers to all of our questions. Riding quadbikes was amazing and we never expected to like sand boarding so much!! Would recommend to anyone visiting Dubai to book this.

It was just perfect, from picking up to getting all the station on time. Many thanks especially for the driver and tour guide Erixson, he was really kind and has managed all relevant things so we had a perfect desert safari. The Quad tour was amazing, and we never forget “drive it like you stole it”. We had an wonderful day, if we come back to Dubai we will do this tour again. Thank you Erixson for this special day!

Felt safe at all times including things related to COVID 19. The food was lovely, entertainment was amazing. Like I said, just an over all amazing experience.
