About
Inexperienced drivers heading into Dubai’s desert without a guide (not recommended) will probably miss out on activities such as camel rides and dune bashes. Get the very best of the desert all rolled into one on this single, afternoon-and-evening experience. After a dune bash, try sandboarding, camel riding, and more before dinner and live entertainment at a Bedouin-inspired camp. Round-trip transport is included for maximum comfort and convenience.

Highlights
  • Experience Dubai’s desert in one, hassle-free tour
  • Full line-up of desert activities, like dune bash, camel ride, and more
  • Enjoy an Arabian Nights-style dinner with live entertainment
  • Convenient round-trip 4WD transport from your Dubai hotel
What to expect
  • After an afternoon pickup at your Dubai hotel, head into the desert wilds in a comfortable, air-conditioned 4WD vehicle. Take in the empty sands and go off-road for a roller-coaster ride around the high dunes. Hold tight as your driver takes you over the slopes, pausing at the top before slipping back down the shifting sands. Stop at the highest dune to view the sunset before continuing to a Bedouin-style campsite. Hop out here for an afternoon and evening of desert activities and entertainments. Go sandboarding, ride a camel, get a henna tattoo, don Arabian robes for a souvenir photo, and try an optional puff on a shisha (Arabic water pipe). Stay refreshed with sodas, water, tea, and coffee; and later, feast on a barbecue buffet dinner. As you relax, enjoy belly dancing and tanoura (whirling dervish) shows under the stars before a convenient return transfer to your hotel.

Perfect Trip - Incredible Experience - Really better than all competitors
Jun 2021 • Couples
I'm a regular Guest with this tour, usualley 2 times per year and I can highly recommend the tour operator. In 2021, they took all Covid-19 Precautions and provided a safe experience, with well trained drivers and staff.

Here is my original review from 2017:

Did this Tour in Summer 2017, have had several tours (Safari + BBQ) with other companies before. DesertGateTourism did several things another ways than all the other companies on the market, for example: usually you stop at market in the dessert where merchands try to sell you overprized stuff- DesertGateTourism doesn't do that. They stop at a gas station to deflate tires and then you're ready to have a great ride through the desert. The food at the bbq was great and everything was free at the camp- from henna tattoos up to shisha. Overall, the best company i've ever used.
