  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Amazing experience!! Definitely a must do in Dubai and with Ocean Air. We booked directly with them and we got lucky cause our driver was Waleed Abbas…. Request him if you are booking with Ocean Air. He made our experience quite unforgettable. He picked us up from our hotel and from the moment we started the excursion, he took care us and our comfort during the whole evening. We did a customized excursion, which you can do if you book directly with them. We opted for the Quad bike option followed by the Al Khayma Camp dinner/show.. Highly recommend the camp as well as Waleed!!!! He took amazing care of us and made it an unforgettable experience.

    This tour was amazing. Our tour guide, Arslan, was incredible. Very knowledgeable about the sites, very personable, and an overall good human being. I would highly recommend this excursion, especially with Arslan. My mom has mobility issues, and he was so kind and gentle with her. He was flexible about what places we went to and for how long we stayed there. We saw several sites in Abu Dhabi!

    This was an amazing experience that was made all the better by our guide Kashif. He was communicative and gave us a great feel for this history and culture of Dubai. He had a great attitude and told hilarious stories while we drove to the different destinations.

    For the experience itself you first start out with riding on an ATV. They bring you to a riding area, give you a helmet, and then you are free to drive for your time on the tour. They also will take a picture of you that you can pay 40 AED for. Don’t worry if you forget to bring water, they offer free water, soft drinks, coffee, and tea throughout the tour.

    Next they take you dune bashing. The ride was a lot of fun and our driver Kashif knows what he is doing. They stop at the top of one of the larger dunes so you can slide down the dune in either a standing or sitting. Definitely try both. Kashif then offers to take photos of you on the Dune (and he takes great photos). After giving a us 5 minutes of free time to take photos on our own we had another dune bash to the camp.
    At the camp you get to ride and feed the camels! They are a lot bigger than I expected. You will be quite high when compared to riding on a horse. They will take some nice photos of you to sell later (starting at around 250 AED, but they come in a nice glass prism) and with your phone. After you are allowed to pet and feed the camels.
    Depending on the timing of your tour you will have an opportunity to take a photo of the sunset on another dune before entering the camp. At the camp they have everything. Modern and clean restrooms, free desserts, refreshments, henna, a live falcon, and gift shops. They give you three performances and in between serve dinner.
    The dinner is amazing. It’s a buffet of three different types of cuisines, BBQ, and dessert. The BBQ in particular is probably the best I have ever had. Of course you can eat as much as you like.
    After that they drop you off at the same location your requested pickup.
    It’s really an amazing deal. Especially when compared to the other experiences I have see on YouTube, this tour is really all inclusive.

    We had a fantastic and awesome time with our tour guide Bilal. He was super engaging, friendly and knowledgeable about the facts and history of all the places he took us to. The whole day was super relaxing and well planned out. Will definitely recommend this tour company to anyone planing to visit Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

    We organised our trip through TripAdvisor and our guide was Javed Anwer. He was absolutely brilliant. Accommodated our requests and stayed beyond 6pm with us ensuring that we saw all the hotspots of Dubai and considering that my parents are elderly.
    Overall, was a fantastic experience which worthed every single penny.

    It was an excursion of a lifetime! We requested our guide to be Mansoor Manz and he was the best ever! He explained every safety detail and treated us like family. He shared many different facts about Dubai and its surrounding areas which was interesting to learn. His driving for dune bashing was well executed and we had a blast.
    The food was excellent and the sleeping arrangements were comfortable. We especially loved living a Bedouin lifestyle. The sunrise in the desert was the best experience! Would highly recommend going with this tour and getting Mansoor as your guide.
