Without doubt the best experience in Dubai by far!!
Got picked up at our hotel at 4 am and drove out to the dessert, watching the sunrise over the dunes was stunning with delicious tea, dates and breakfast.
Sandboarding was amazing, son much fun, dune bashing with driver Sahib was superb adrenaline fueled crazy fun!
Definitely a must while in Dubai.
Beautiful desert safari sunrise

This trip was definitely worth the early morning. A great excursion all round with a beautiful sunrise followed by breakfast and arabic coffee. The tour guide was very knowledgable and made sure it was an enjoyable experience for us both. We would highly recommend this trip!
Memorable experience

The tour was really nice. We enjoyed the sunrise in the desert and also did some dune bashing. There were only 3 other tourists except for us, so we had the desert to ourselves. We also saw some wildlife: gasels snd birds on the lake. The driver/guide was also great.
The best safari tour

It was an amazing tour and a real experience. We chose the sunrise safari, as we were not interested in the longer evening program and the wild life combo seemed a good choice. It was a perfect tour. We had to wakee up early in the morning, pick up was at 4.30 but the wild animals, thee tour, the desert with the breakfast, feeling the sand with our feets was absolutely amazing. The driver was very kind, and a vegan. option for breakfast was even possible.
Everything was perfekt and thanks for the experience.
Great experience enjoyed...

We had a wonderful trip with our driver Mustafeh. He is a professional through and through. This trip has a really great value!
Fun tour for early risers
Andreea_P, 16-01-2023
Great service and overall experience, from pick-up to drop-off, even if the sunrise was somewhat hidden by clouds.
Our guide was very friendly, professional and a really good desert driver, judging from the dune bashing bit. Bring warm clothes and expect to get some sand in your shoes.
Would recommend to anyone who wants to escape the crowd at sunset, as the sunrise tour seems to be more private.
Unreal experience - sunrise safari bargain

A truly incredible morning for an unbelievably cheap price, Javid was a superb guide and driver who helped make the tour even better. upon returning to dubai ill be trying to book with him again.

We were picked up from our hotel early hours by Javid in a Toyota land cruiser, a superb vehicle. we then went to collect a couple joining us on the tour from another hotel on the palm. we then drove about an hour into the desert on the highway before arriving at the turn off to the desert. after not long we spotted a pair of oryx.
After some more driving through the desert we reached the steep terrain. we were driven up ad over the dunes which was great fun, Javid never made any of us feel unsafe at any time, we were in very capable hands.

We were provided with some traditional food and arabic coffee which was a nice touch especially as it was unexpected.

While waiting for sunrise we took part in sand boarding which was great.

Watching the sun rise in the desert is a truly unforgettable experience, something that's a must do when in dubai.

We then drove via one of the sheiks desert palaces which was very impressive to see.
After that we arrived at al qudra lake, an amazing oasis with wildlife galore and plants everywhere.

The drive back was quiet as we were all tired but was smooth and relaxing.

Overall I will try and do tis tour with Javid everytime I return to dubai. For the price (less then 40gbp) its an absolute bargain and well worth it. Javid was the most polite, respectful driver, very knowledgable yet very humorous which made tings all the more enjoyable.

10/10 5 stars a must do
