Star rating:

Normally I would give 5 stars, but the journey was a bit slow for my taste. Of course I know that the guide has to take care of the passengers and therefore has to be considerate of the slower or most fearful passengers. But apart from that, I would repeat this trip at any time. The guide was really great and nice, the general trip was really breathtaking and really recommendable.

Really nice thing to do in Dubai

If you’re into driving then just go for it. The buggies are powerful and fun to drive, it’s not that cheap chinese buggy you can rent as a tourist in other places. I had Jamie and Adriaan as guides and they did a great job. I’d recommend two hours tour and no passenger, so you can enjoy all of it yourself.

Nice afternoon out on the sand

I really liked this company and the experience all round, I felt it was well managed and they had a focus to execute a good level of service. We had an issue with a breakdown during the tour which isn't surprising given the extremes these buggies are put through day in and day out, it was quickly resolved so no drama and our time out wasn't compromised. The group size was small which was nice as it felt a little more personable. The buggies were top notch no expense spared so all in all great value for money. Compliments to William our guide who engaged with our group and was genuinely passionate about the experience we were having.
