Had a great time on this efficient tour! Was only in Dubai for a day, and was traveling with three kids under 8, and it was mid/late August (so pretty warm). Rashid, our guide, picked us up from one place, dropped us off at another, and in between showed us a really nice time wit some very cool activities. He was super patient with us (which is really a requirement for hanging out with us!), did an awesome job balancing safety and excitement while dune bashing, got some great pictures of us messing around with camels and sand boarding, and just overall made sure it was a very positive experience.

Highly recommend!

Saeed was a professional, friendly and knowledgeable driver and tour guide. He communicated with us to let us know he was at the hotel and was courteous and covid safe with masks and hand sanitizer available.

During the drive Saeed was very informative about the various Dubai landmarks that we passed and taught us about various aspects of Dubai culture.

Cold bottled water was provided in the car throughout the trip.

When we stopped at the quad biking location Saeed did not rush us whilst our family of 4 hired some quad bikes (optional and additional charge). Saeed also helped to interpret which made the booking process quick and easy.

During the the dune ride Saeed was a very skilled driver and gave us a great, exciting ride. We stopped at a scenic location and Saeed took some excellent photos of our family using our own smartphones. We also had a go at sandboarding at this location which was great fun.

We then drove to the desert camp where we had a quick camel ride and then Saeed showed us to our table.

The food and show at the desert camp was excellent.

Once the show was finished, Saeed was ready and waiting for our trip back to our hotel.

When visiting Dubai again we will definitely look forward to seeing Saeed again and would recommend him as a tour guide with no hesitation.
