From the moment we got picked up to the time we got dropped off was amazing.

Muneer our driver was very knowledgeable on everything we asked, he would tell us the story behind things and he pointed things out all the time, a massive thank you to him.

The driving through the sand dunes in a Toyota Land Cruiser was amazing and Muneer seemed very experienced and knew exactly where every bump or turn was.

We arrived for the buggy experience and was very impressed with the buggy and safety briefing we had prior to setting off, our experience was amazing and the driver in front was very kind and took lots of pictures for us.

There was a falcon show and a camel ride, the camel ride is more for a picture as its literally two minutes long.

The dinner show and bbq was really good, the food was all freshly cooked and plenty of it too.

All in all our day was really good and would recommend to anyone.

Awesome, enjoyed a lot! These customised buggies are so much better than standard Polaris buggies that you will find in many companies. I tried both, so recommend these.

Big thanks to Stanly, Sultan and Latif for a great service.

We had booked a private dinner with a buggy ride. We had a very friendly driver, and told us all about Dubai, the nature and constructions, when we were on the way to the dunes (which was just about an hour drive). After driving the buggy for 1 hours ourselves we went to a private dining setting. This dining is totally private. Just you, a cook (which was also kind and a good cook) and your driver. You have a private table and can explore a few meters of dunes while waiting for the dishes to finish. We had a wonderful time and we would recommend explorer tours to everybody

Good:

Our guide, Ali, was right on time picking us up from the hotel and was great the entire time of the trip.

It was just me and my girlfriend in the car, maybe because of corona, but it felt like a private excursion.

We were a single buggy and again felt like a private drive. The leader on the ATV was very polite and led us through great places.

We wrote the camels, saw the falcon, rode snowboards, watched the shows and the food was delicious.

Overall - it was very fun!

Bad:

The ONLY reason we picked this trip, instead of the others were the modified buggies! We're both automotive enthusiasts and can clearly see the many differences between the Polaris, which we were given and the ones from the pictures.

When we initially sat IN THE POLARIS, I pointed at the modified ones and asked aren't they from the picture and aren't they faster (and generally way better than the Polaris).

The person from the tour agency said they're the same and both 1000cc. First of all cc is not the only thing that matters and secondly the other ones are 2000cc. It even says it in your description, which I didn't read at the time, because we were already geared up and in the Polaris, so I took your word for it and didn't want to make a scene.

We thought that the modified ones might be broken or something and decided not to argue. When we came back, we saw another couple heading for a drive in a modified buggy.

We felt a bit cheated and there are cheaper trips with polarises, which we could've of taken.

As a tip to everyone reading this - demand the modified buggy, because that's what they offering and that's what you're paying the premium for. Don't be ignorant like us!

5 stars for all the guides and experiences
1 star for the plain lie about the buggy... The only reason we picked you for. Just sad.

A very enjoyable day for all. There was confusion at the beginning with pick up time being an hour later than expected, but once in the car the day was a blast. Recommended for all to enjoy. Take a go pro for your dune buggy experience - the faster ones are great. The passenger said it looked very hard whilst she wa s hanging onto her seat, but I loved driving over the top of the dunes at speed. At the bbq, great hospitality caring greatly about our experience with many other tour groups. The food was tasty with great company. The sand boarding could use some improvement.

Awesome ride in the desert! Driving the buggy on the dunes is a huge adrenaline kick! The guys are really helpful in teaching the ropes of desert driving for anyone feeling insecure in the beginning. Then pick a cool route with plenty of opportunities to challenge the buggy and the driver. Would definitely do again!

We were 3 girls and we rented 2 buggies for an hour. Sultan and Latif took so good care of us. The hour went so quickly!! It was amazing! Such an adrenaline hit 🤩🤩 It was easy and felt safe at the same time as it was thrilling! We all got to drive and even did a jump 😅 Great experience all in all! Recommend this to everyone who wants something fun to do in Dubai!
