Dubai Desert Safari Excursion Reviews

Dubai Desert Safari cruise excursion
Overall Rating
Never let it be said that the desert is dull. Have a blast on an exciting desert safari out of Dubai, where you will plunge through sand dunes and take in all of the beautiful scenery.

Great experience...Dune bashing in SUV is different than being in an actual purpose made dune buggy but still lots of fun with the benefit of not getting sand in your face/mouth! The dinner portion was fun with lots of food options. Could have done without the belly dancer as this seemed out of place to the experience.

Enjoyed the dune part but the jeep was very uncomfortable in the back two seats and it took us an hour to get out of Dubai. The camel ride was very short

Like Wadi Rum in that we were driven through sand dunes. The tour included a buffet dinner and show, which were mediocre. Sitting on the floor was part of the adventure, a part which left me with excruciating back pain. The guide was entertaining.

The dune bashing in a modern 4 wheel drive was great fun! The desert camp was a little too touristy, but still a worthwhile experience.

Fun! Fun! Fun! Riding 4 X 4s & the camel was a blast. Dinner in the desert was a great experience. Our tour guide (Shaik Amir) was excellent

Expensive excursion. Organised well by the ship but the guide hardly spoke at all. No information was forthcoming unless asked. Didn't know why we had stopped at a place or for how long. Took a long time to drive there and back with not that much time in the actual sand dunes.

Used independent Operator Oceanair Travels for our Desert Dinner Safari and was very pleased. The drivers were attentive, friendly and accommodating. We held a falcon, had the option of renting quad bikes, went sand surfing, got henna tattoos, and rode camels! The group enjoyed the belly and tanoura dancers and the dinner was great. I'd highly recommend an independent operator for this tour as the savings were significant and some operators (like ours) guarantee ontime return to the ship.

This excursion is a "MUST DO". The drivers, the ambiance, the desert, the food, the experience was amazing. If you are prone to motion sickness DO NOT GO ON THIS TOUR. I now know that I am prone to motion sickness and I got really sick during the dune bashing. The driver and passengers were very helpful and the driver took a different route to get me to camp. I really appreciated their compassion and understanding.

We organised Rayna Tours to collect us from the Dubai port, and had received a confirmation of our booking stating time, date and pick-up location. We had fully pre-paid this tour. We were at the pick-up location at least an hour before pick up time. They simply did not turn up. We had the security guard on lookout for us, as there was a terrible sandstorm, he said that they had not come by at all. We rang Rayna Tours, who said that they had already left, and because they could not contact us by phone, they just didn't bother to come and pick us up. When we spoke to them, they were very rude and dismissive, and really not interested at all.

Lots of people on our cruise had taken this before and everyone rated it as highly as we did. Exciting, fun, varied with good food and entertainment and cold BEER. Thumbs up.
