Excellent trip from start to finish, was collected directly from my accommodation so didn't have to organize a taxi into the city, was taken directly to the desert, given plenty of opportunities for photos during the Dune Bashing experience and once we reached the camp, there was all manner of different activities to do like camel riding, quad biking, sand boarding, henna art, as well as the dancers that entertained us before and after a tasty buffet dinner. I was then brought directly back to my accommodation and was home before 10PM. Overall, an amazing experience and fantastic value for money, a must-do while staying in the UAE.

This was the most incredible experience. I often don’t plan guided tours and go off on my own to explore. I am SO happy I decided to go with Desert Rose Tourism! Very efficient, professional- the guide and dune crashing driver Selloom was the highlight of the trip- I learned so much about Abu Dhabi & the culture, I was traveling alone and he made sure I felt comfortable and safe, and epic ride in the desert! Had a sunset view in the desert, camel farm visit, henna, quad bikes, bbq, sand surfing… the list goes on and on. This is an experience not to be missed in Abu Dhabi! I’ll be booking again next time I’m back!

It was definitely an amazing experience. Worth every penny! Saad is an amazing guide/driver. Would definitely suggest it to anyone visiting Abu Dhabi.

It was an amazing experience. The guides were fun and knowledgeable and kept us engaged and filled with information the whole time.

Thoroughly enjoyed the safari, the travel time to get to the dunes was an hour long though.
