Imran was such a great tour guide. He picked us up right on schedule was super polite and punctual. He took us for the ATV, the sand board and camel ride and took pictures of us all the way threw our tour. He was on top of everything going on from offering us water to making sure we were the first one to grab food to asking if we wanted anything else before leaving the camp area. He was absolutely welcoming. This tour is definitely recommended.
Start the tour with a pickup by the travel guide in an air-conditioned vehicle. Set off together for the magnificent Lahbab Desert where you can taste the thrill of desert adventure and the beauty of Bedouin culture.
Upon arrival in the desert, enjoy a short break during which you can use the toilet before starting your quad bike adventure. Listen to your guide as they give you safety instructions on quad biking including how to wear the helmet.

It was amazing experience . Highly recommended. Our tour guide ,Irfan was really helpful
After pickup from your hotel in a 4x4 Land Cruiser, you’ll head off with your local guide to the desert, just 45 minutes from Dubai. Upon reaching the Lahbab Desert, you’ll have about 20 minutes to relax. For the more adventurous, you can try quad biking, which is an optional activity. Once your 4x4 vehicle is ready, you will hit the desert for about 30-45 minutes of dune bashing. Feel your stomach leap as the Land Cruiser drives up and down the tall red dunes. Marvel at how the vehicle tackles impossibly steep inclines and the uneven terrain of the sand.

A little expensive for the experience. However, the team were excellent, well prepared and ready to help where possible.
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Dubai, then start your journey to the peaceful desert surroundings for a sunset experience of a lifetime. Make your way to a camel caravan, and experience the beauty of the landscape from the back of one of the "ships of the desert" for about 30-45 minutes depending on the option selected. Take (optional) rides up and down the dunes in the twilight. Then, go to a Bedouin-style camp for a traditional Arabic coffee (kahwa) or tea on arrival. Savor Luqaimat sweets with dates and experience part of the desert lifestyle. Feel "Old Arabia" come to life in a unique Bedouin setting. Take part in traditional activities to complete your journey into the culture of the Arab world. Try your hand at smoking a shisha pipe or get a henna tattoo on your hand.

The trip started very well with the driver picking me up at my place right on time. Unfortunately, due to road traffic we arrived a bit tight. The camel ride was truly what I had hope for. Experiencing the little bit of the desert was a great experience. Afterwards we went to the camp. It was quite humid and hot, and this is not the fault of anyone, but it was very different of what I had just experience in the desert. Overall the food was very good. I wish I could have had a second plate. The show could have been a little better as I was expecting belly dancing but the fire dancer was truly the highlight of the show. All in all, it's a great activity if you want to experience a bit of the desert.
Following pick-up from your hotel or preferred location in central Dubai, set off on an astonishing tour by comfortable vehicle. Journey into the Arabian desert, and experience its beguiling panoramas atop a camel. Ride over the desert terrain on camel back and experience an ancient mode of transportation first hand. Watch the sunrise after an approximate 25-minute ride and immerse yourself in the spectacular atmosphere. Continue on your camel ride for about 20 minutes after the break of day, and make your way towards a Bedouin community to get a traditional welcome of Arabic coffee ("Kahwa") or tea served with dates and other dried fruits. Enjoy a light breakfast upon arrival at the camp before returning to Dubai to get dropped off at your hotel.
Sunrise in the desert… an experience not to be missed. Leaving bustling Dubai behind to enjoy the peace and quiet of an early morning desert was an outstanding experience. Our tour guide Shihab was exceptional every step of our private tour and Ibrahim, our camel guide was not only sharing his insights of desert life, but took pictures of us at backdrops and settings like a pro. The breakfast was well diversified and truly an offering of traditional fare.
After a prompt pick up from Dubai port in an air-conditioned vehicle, transfer to the Lehbab Desert. Begin your tour of this stunning landscape with a quad bike ride after a quick safety briefing. Continue the ride across the red dunes for the next 60 minutes. For an extra adventure, try your hand at sandboarding as you stand on a wooden board and glide down the dunes. Next, head over to a typical desert camp, and familiarise yourself with an array of Bedouin specialties. Experience various activities such as henna tattooing, shisha pipe smoking, and dressing up in traditional Arabian attire. Take a short camel ride around the camp premises. When you return back to the camp, enjoy a delicious barbecue dinner buffet accompanied by a live Tanoura dance and Khaleeji dance show. At the end of the performance, return back to Dubai port where you will be dropped off at the cruise ship termin...
ATV Driving is fun but not as easy as it looks. I found it hard to stay on the road and I actually derailed a few times because I went down the hill. Make sure you press a lot of gas when driving- that is the only way you will drive smoothly. If you ultimately fail at driving the ATV to the destination (sand boarding) like me, then you will ride in a car that will bring you to sand boarding and back to the starting point as well. The car ride was very fun! As for the camel ride, it was pretty short- I was in the front so it wasn’t that bumpy- I heard it was bumpy in the back. It says in the voucher we bought that we can feed the camels but that wasn’t available- the camels were wearing masks. Also the bbq buffet was yummy and there’s a lot you can experience at the camp like henna tattoo, buying souvenirs, taking pics with a falcon, trying Arabic tea/coffee, and there’s like 3 performances. I wish there was belly dancing but there wasn’t :( but overall it was still a great experience!
The experience begins with pickup from your hotel in Dubai and heads out to the Lehbab Desert where adventure awaits. Arrive at the dune buggy center and get kitted out with all the necessary safety gear while listening to the instructions from your safari captain. Drive your buggy out onto the sand dunes and enjoy an hour of thrill seeking. Speed through the desert landscape and glide across peculiar sand formations, feeling the buzz of adrenaline rush through your body from start to finish. Once you’ve had some fun on the buggies, it’s time for the next activity of the day. Grab a sandboard and hit the slopes, sliding and slipping your way across the dunes. This is the final activity for guests who opt for the 4-hour experience. After sand boarding, the 6-hour experience continues with more fun-filled activities at the nearby Al Khayma Desert Camp. Here you can enjoy a camel ride acr...
