Full description
Depart Dubai and drive to the surrounding desert for an extreme adventure with your family or friends. Leave in the afternoon to cross the red sands and dunes of “Lahbab” before the sun sets. Travel by 4WD Land Cruiser and stop at the highest dune to watch the sunset over the horizon. Take a superb photo of the Bedouins as they cross the desert with their camel trains. Continue to a desert camp to benefit from a host of available activities. Cross the sands on camel back and experience the "ships of the desert" first-hand, or try your hand at sand boarding down the dune for the ultimate adrenaline rush. Get a (removable) henna tattoo on your hands or feet. Watch traditional Arabic entertainment, such as a belly dance show and the whirling dancers of a tanoura show. Smoke a shisha water pipe (“hooka”) before you are served a barbecue buffet dinner of authentic Arabic cuisine in the middle of the desert. Return to your waiting vehicle for the journey back to Dubai.

Best desert Safari ever! We had an amazing time. Our tourguide Ahmad is the best guide, he always took care of us and was very nice. The drive over the sanddunes was very action-packed but very cool and you always did feel safe with Ahmad as a driver. Would recommend this tour to everybody that is visiting Dubai to 100%! :) Beste Wüstentour allerzeiten! Hatten eine tolle Tour. Unser Guide Ahmad ist der Beste Tourguide er war sehr nett und hat immer darauf geschaut das es uns gut geht. Die Fahrt über die Sanddünen war sehr actionreich aber sehr cool. Man hat sich immer sehr sicher gefühlt mit Ahmad als Fahrer. Würde diese Tour jedem der in Dubai ist zu 100% empfehlen! :)

This is by far one of the best experiences I've had in Dubai. The company 'Excursion Point Tourism' took care of everything for 7 of us. They had quick responses to any queries I had regarding the booking and activity. Our drivers Ahmad and Liza were the cherry on the cake. They were absolutely brilliant by taking care of our needs from start to finish. They got us a good deal with the quad biking and kept us updated with the evening meal. They ushered us to the BBQ and made sure we were front of the queue. I could not have asked for a better pair. Highly Recommended.
