Your desert experience begins with pickup from your Dubai hotel, where you greet your guide and board an air-conditioned, SUV destined for the Arabian Desert.

On entering the desert, your guide deflates your tires and takes you on a rollercoaster ride as you crash through the dunes in your off-road vehicle. Then, visit an oasis and travel through a camel farm before stopping to watch a stunning sunset. Continue to a desert safari camp designed to represent a traditional Bedouin village for a camel ride, used as a means of desert transport by Arabs for centuries.   

If you’re a thrill-seeker, try your hand at sandboarding down desert dunes or opt to ride a quad bike at your own expense. Recline on soft Arabian carpets with a shisha pipe as professional artists adorn your hands and feet with henna and, once decorated, pose for photographs wearing traditional Arabian dress—please note, if you wish to purchase photographs, this is at your own expense.

Then, prepare yourself for the visual beauty of a belly dancing show, where professional dances swish and sway during a tanoura dance performance and fire show. Following the show is the feast, which includes shawarma, salads, mezze, Middle Eastern sweets, and more. Soft drinks and water are unlimited, but alcoholic beverages are at your own expense.

HUNTING FOR A REASON Dear Guest, Your Safari is included with a list of activities, the food part comes to only 7% of the package you paid. As the safari is included a list of activities such as:- 1.Pick up and drop off at your hotel door step with 4x4 SUV, a thrilling and adventurous dune bashing in the desert - which cost the vehicle a lot of maintainance therefore 70% of the cost is packaged to the jeep rentals and the special trained lisenced safari guides expense. 2. Camp use and its facilities such as camel ride, sand boarding, henna painting, shesha at the tent etc. 3. A lavish dinner include starters, main course, desserts, unlimited soft drinks and water. The cost are of course high during holiday season due to huge demand, the market is decided by the equilibrium of supply and demand. It is very clear that you want to punish us with a review where you felt the prices are high, especially taking a minor son's opinion without knowing the consequenses of such a negative review in social media. We had 100s of guest who paid happily enjoyed the services to the maximum whereas, a handful of tourists neither they enjoy the holidays no they carry good memories as they spend their time in hunting for a reason. Please remember Dubai is world's No 1 destination here quality comes with a price tag, we dispute your opinion of airplane food as the flight that we travel do not offer a buffet dinner with 3 variety of starter that include Chicken shawarma, felafel and samboosa followed by a lavish buffet dinner that includes haf dozen salads, starters. dips, almost eight items of main course that include Arabic rice, lentils, baked potato, pasta & noodles, vegetable in gravy, steamed vegetables, BBQ include Shish Twook, Lamb kebab, Chicken drumsticks from the grill. Can an aeroplane serve so much ? There is one thing we accept that inorder to offer maximum COVID protection that we use disposable plates, forks and spoons and not reusable crockeries. We would like to conclude to say that we cannot afford to offer a glass of wine as our price is one of the lowest for the activities included in the package, we are among the rare tour operators who do not pay the money back to the customer to remove the negative review because your reviews give us a chance to tell the world about us.
Tedious, underwhelming and expensive
, Dec 2021
The experience itself is recommended, as spending a day in the dessert and the activities themselves were a good tourist experience. However, for the price that ABC tours charges, there are much better deals in Dubai (I have done several). There was only water provided with only 1 cola allowed with dinner (we could not purchase one and they made us wait until dinner). The food was horrendous and none of the other guests ate their dinner, I have had better food in airports and school canteens. The performances were tedious and underwhelming. Overall, I would give this a 6/10

NEW YEAR PRICE We understand that your concern in regards to the price you paid. You have made the reservation is one of the busiest seasons which is New Year. Trust us you are lucky enough to get accommodated in this period. As you said you might have gone for Safari with another company at off peak season. During this season holidays many companies were rejecting all bookings to take booking on high rates. We were loyal to all our Guests and accommodated all our bookings without any differences of rate paid. We will not agree with your comment in regards to the water and soft drinks. In our camp we have arranged a self-service for water and soft drinks and its unlimited from the time Guest reach camp till Guest leave. Our food we serve in our camp is a lavish buffet and it’s from a Hotel meeting all the standards. We only grill the BBQ at the camp to keep its freshness and hygiene. Meat we use for our BBQ are of high quality. In regards to the entertainment it’s the same entertainment performed in all the camp. Enjoying all the services and for no reason giving a low star rating is really painful.

Amazing experience
, Dec 2021
The experience was awesome, we really enjoyed ourselves, especially not having travelled in 2 years. The entire team put out a great effort to ensure that we enjoyed our experience, from pick up at the hotel, sand dune bashing, camel riding, to the night show, everything was really well organized, all of this despite the current covid challenges. Thank you so much.

The 4x4 Driver was excellent and dune bashing was thrilling!!! Camp nice plenty of food and shows were good excellent particularly the fire show!! We upgraded to VIP and table service which was reasonably priced ! Fantastic sunset and later in the evening they turn all power off to stargaze which was cool !! Only down side was the rickety old bus which picked us up and took us to desert! Where all previous Similar tours I’d been on the 4x4 collected you from hotel !!

Riding the ATV out in the open desert was very memorable. The sunset and the view was amazing too. Our guide was on time with our pickup time and was amazing at guiding us. Riding the car over the sand dunes was very thrilling for sure.

Incredibly disappointing day!!
, Oct 2021
We were very much looking forward to what sounded like a fun filled evening, and was extremely disappointed with what was provided. Before the event we struggled to get any communication from the tour company about times and locations for pick up from our hotel after asking many times. Our driver showed up late and our group was the last to get to the camp, every other group had been there for some time and managed to complete their activities by sunset, but as we arrived late we caught 5 minutes of sun before it set and therefore had to cram in the activities very quickly before completely darkness. When dropped off at the camp our guide left us and drove away meaning we had no one to show us to our help us with the activities which was ridiculous! Other people had a guide and we were alone. You only get 1 try on the sand board, you only walk around in a small circle on the camel for less than 2 minutes, and the desert safari was also short and underwhelming. The description of these activities do not match up to what was provided!!! We were constantly unsold throughout, if you wanted a large henna instead of small, if you wanted your ‘free’ sheesha at your table instead of in a random tent far away, and even for scarfs for your head. The food was very average and basic, serve yourself on styrofoam plates and sit on the floor to eat. The only saving grace of this day was the shows, the belly dancer and fire breather were very good but everything was a HUGE disappointment. Would not recommend that anyone uses this company.

REALITY PROVED WITH FACT Your hand written feedback in details you put good and excellent feedback .. we wish if we could attach that feedback. Let the world see how people change themselves. We request the reader please read carefully and understand the truth. the guest booked the lowest priced package and expect the expensive service such as VIP lounge Royal safari dinner with corn fed fresh chicken recipe etc these things cost us. You paid USD 45 includes all taxes agency commission we the service provider get only balance amount. However, we offered the products and service double the price that you have paid. This is city where a good coffee cost USD 10 or more because this city known for quality. Please put together the things you enjoyed. 1) Contact: For all our guest soon, we receive the booking. not just email but WhatsApp as well. We believe you may not have checked your messages. We 100 of guest every day who make online booking and never had a problem. It is automated. it cannot skip one booking. 2) Driver delay: NOT TRUE. your program pickup time was 3.45 driver (You booked dinner safari) was on time. All our vehicles are fitted with tacking system which can be proved with the report. I believe you were looking at our premium safari time which was at 1430 hrs. That is program is premium with early pickup. 3) Food: We are the one of those companies offering high quality and the high standards of hygiene. We send you our menu did find anything missing.??? The same food is appreciated every day by our guest 4) Henna, Camel Ride and Shesha : All these activities are for just an experience. If you wanted to do Camel ride for 45 minutes you have to book our Camel Safari program. The Camel ride standard 50 meters however anyone who wants more the ride can be repeated. We initiated you about it by WhatsApp before you left for safari. There is animal lover in this word who do not like toil the animals. We need to take middle path. Shesha is free for an experience in the Shesha tent which is included in your package. The shesha tent is just couple of metres away from the traditional Majilis seating which you compared to the floor seating. We wish you would understand the Arabian traditions better. There are many guest who wish to get a private shesha on their table with new shesha pipes and to do it with their choice of flavours for the whole evening with service on the tables. Yes, we do offer the private shesha service on the tables that cost us US$ 15 net for the guest who prefer private shesha on their tables. 5)Styrofoam plate: It pained us when we spend extra money to protect you from COVID19. It is mandatory to maintain hygiene one should disposable plate and glass. We do not compromise on quality and hygiene. Our majlis is one of the largest in means by size and rating still we keep only 50 to 70 guests just offer highest and possible COVID protection to our guest. One day you visit some of the other camps even half of our size you will witness 400 to 500 guest each These are reviews but revenge you expected the same tour that higher paid guest enjoy. Sorry such services even we cannot offer free.. it cost us a lot. Thanks for reading our sincere and honest reply. Truth prevails and we know that these kind of social buzzwords for refund to remove the review will not hamper our efforts to get an impeccable service to the world. We believe nothing is impossible !!!
