I definitely recommend the Desert Safari experience to anyone visiting Dubai. You will enjoy the opportunity to ride a camel and take pictures with them. You will have an exhilarating dune bashing and quad bike experience. Also, if you are willing to try it, you will learn how to sandboard. This is a must do.

Excellent time was told what was happening step by step and tour guide fayyaz was amazing and helped a lot with my sons anxiety he's a credit to the company.
I say we were not fully satisfied though the Quad bike was offered but with additional price. I think for that matter
AQUILES_A, Sept 2023
Desert Safari was an experience. The only concern I had was that a Quad bike was canceled even though they were available on the very day of the activity and we can not get a refund of the money.
Active and fun desert Safari
Tara_P, Sept 2023
Great value for money, definitely an experience to go for in Dubai. Mr Ghafoor from Ocean Air was our great tour guide for the day, made sure everyone was well looked after and took plenty of photos for us! I recommend attending the tasty evening bbq
Poor camels
Nik_J, Sept 2023
It was fun, especially the suv ride over the dunes, but the camels are treated very poorly. They have to wear masks because they are so nervous they could spit. It’s heartbraking. Not like other camel owners where animals are treated well.
Amazing host
Madalitso_K, Sept 2023
Such a great host we were given, very educative and fun filled day. Great driver and very patient. Thank you.
Great fun
Natalie_F, Sept 2023
The tour was great. It felt a bit rushed as every part was at different locations so we spent a lot of time driving around. I have done a similae tour in the past and the sand bashing, camel rides and quad bikes were all at the same location. The food at the camp was wonderful.
Rodell_S, Sept 2023
The tour guide Mr. Sham was awesome He made this experience perfect. I was not expecting this experience to be so much fun. I am very very happy I chose this tour. Thank you
Amazing unique experience
Kimmy_L, Aug 2023
Amazing! Loved the whole experience from start to finish very unique heading to the desert guide was funny and great crack had a really enjoyable day! Thanks to Fayyaz
Professional service with a smile
Lisa_M, Aug 2023
Fayyaz was a great communicator, driver and host. All parts of the tour were positive. 4-5 hours was perfect due to the heat - we were continuously offered water and shelter from the sun and sand.
Amazing experience!!
Diana_A, Aug 2023
My daughter and I had an amazing time. The whole trip was well organized, from pick up to drop off was exactly as indicated. Our tour guide Shakeef was amazing, very knowledgeable and caring, making sure we were ok. We never once felt we didn't know what was going on. I'm recommending ocean air to everyone I know, who will be coming to Dubai. We are definitely coming back! Please go all out and choose the full package with the dinner. It was a blast.
Not for me
parkersummerhill, Aug 2023
Whole experience was overcrowded and impersonal. The guide seemed to be overworked and wasn't particularly engaging. The quad biking was just a scam where you were asked to drop significantly more money to have a decent experience. The best part was seeing the Toyota Landcruiser driving through the dunes—it was quite impressive to see a car being used for its intended purpose. Overall, I wouldn't do again. The tour gives you a poor persons taste for how the wealthy can play in Dubai. For some that may be great; however, it's not for me.
So much fun!
Jody_S, Aug 2023
Zaman was the best tour guide I ever experienced in my travels! He was knowledgeable and fun! He was also very friendly and caught one of the funniest moments of my life on my phone for me! He is a great driver!!!!! I would 100/10 recommend the company and definitely Zaman as a guide! The only thing I disliked was how the guy at the camels rushed and took our pictures. They look horrible.
Great adventure
Karl_L, Aug 2023
It was a perfectly organised, exceptional experience. Highly recommended. Tehseen our guide was the best guide ever.
Immanuel_a, Aug 2023
This is a must ,very nice experience.aamer was amazing to really made my day.I would recommend this activity.
The best tour!!
Jodie_C, Aug 2023
If I could leave more than 5 stars I would!!! A fantastic day full of activities & culture. Cannot thank our tour guide Nasser enough for giving us the best safari tour ever. We did ATV, Camel Riding, Dune Bashing, followed by an evening at a camp where there was endless tents of food and other activities. Money well spent & will recommend this to everyone back home in Australia!
Great adventure
Naida_T, Aug 2023
Great experience only negative I would say is where the ATVs are is a small space we were expecting more
Nick_S, July 2023
Brilliant fun trip. Camel ride fab. Sand dunes amazing. Overall experience was great. Would definitely recommend.
Great buy and tons of fun
Anthony_P, July 2023
This was a fantastic buy . They were and fun. The upgrade price was a shame , 150 dollars to upgrade to a can -am two seater. This was to go outside the lines and ride in the sand. You just have to follow the instructor . If i were you i would just negotiate the price when you do go . They give you water and you can buy a lot of items there. It’s a good buy especially for the off season of June and July. It’s super hot so be ready but i mean your in the desert
