About
Enjoy a dinner cruise on Dubai Creek and a 4x4 desert trip with this Dubai Super Saver that combines two best-selling tours at a discounted price! Ride a 4x4 into Dubai’s desert and enjoy dune bashing before visiting a Bedouin-style camp. Then, ride a camel and watch belly dancers and other Arabic entertainments during a sunset barbecue dinner. On the evening before or after, enjoy a dinner cruise along Dubai Creek. Board a 'dhow' (a wooden Arabian boat) and savor a buffet as you cruise past the glittering city skyline.

Cancellation policy

What to expect
  • The two tours must be taken over two consecutive evenings. Choose the order you want to take them after booking. 4x4 Desert Camp Experience (6 hours):After pickup from your central Dubai hotel, travel by comfortable, air-conditioned 4x4 into the desert around the city. On route, gaze out over the sandy plains and dunes, and hear revealing facts about Dubai’s history from your guide, who doubles as your driver. Then, go off road for a dune bash. Thrill as you plough up and down the ever-shifting sands, before continuing to a Bedouin-style camp in the desert. Hop out and absorb the beautiful setting with the fairylit tents twinkling in the twilight. Then, choose to enjoy any of the Emirati activities on offer. Take a camel ride, get a henna tattoo painted on your hands, and smoke a shisha (water pipe) if you wish. Savor a delicious, 3-course barbecue dinner of dishes such as Arabic mezze, lamb chops and coffee and dates. See the Itinerary for a sample menu. Then, as you eat, watch an exotic belly dancing performance as the stars light up the desert sky. Your experience then finishes with a 4x4 ride and drop-off back at your hotel. Dhow Dinner Cruise (2 hours):Hop into a minibus at your hotel and head into Deira, one of Dubai’s oldest quarters. Arrive at Dubai Creek and admire your prettily lit dhow, waiting at the pier. Then, be welcomed aboard by the friendly crew to start your cruise. Enjoy your first views of Deira’s skyline from the water as your dhow slips its mooring, and then enjoy a leisurely two hours of cruising up and down the creek. As you sail, dig into a generous buffet of Emirati and international dishes (see the Itinerary for a sample menu), such as chicken tikka masala and grilled fish. Wash it down with complimentary sodas and mineral waters, and if you wish, purchase additional drinks from the bar. Out on deck, relish the evening breezes and snap photos of the passing sights, such as the Deira Twin Towers, Al Maktoum Bridge and windtowers of Bur Dubai, all beautifully reflected in the lapping waters. Afterward, dock back at the pier and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.

Mar 2019 • Friends
Let me tell you in great detail my experience with Alpha Tours. First of all, my friend and I were on a 20-hour Emirates layover and thought it would be nice to go on a desert safari tour. We found Alpha Desert Safari Tours, they had decent ratings, so we booked them. They sent us an email which told us to wait in the lobby of our hotel and someone would pick us up between 3 and 3:30pm and asked what our preferred method of communication was, which I responded email. So naturally at 2:50pm I was waiting in the hotel lobby for somebody associated with alpha tours to show up. When it got to 3:30 and I had not seen anybody in the lobby looking for us or asking us if we were waiting on the Alpha Safari Tour, I assumed that they were running a little late and we were okay with that, although we were getting anxious and continued to wait at the very front of the lobby. At 4pm when I hadn’t seen anyone, received an email, or heard our names announced, I asked the concierge to call the office number for me. When I spoke to the Alpha Safari front office, they said that their driver was Mohammed Salin and he was indeed at the hotel. They said he left a message with the cashier and called my hotel room. This made no sense to me because first off we were told to wait IN THE LOBBY and secondly I indicated email as my preferred form of communication and I was constantly checking for an email from them while I was in the lobby. But most surprising was why the driver had not said anything to us while we were there. We were the two guys staring at the door waiting for anyone who was looking for someone for OVER AN HOUR! When speaking to the Alpha Desert Safari I let them know exactly what had happened, and the first thing the man on the phone said was that we were not there, which was in fact a lie. We were in the front of the lobby the whole time because we didn’t want to accidentally miss our trip, which is ironic. Then he told us he called our rooms, which I had to remind him of our instructions to let him know that it did not make sense. He then tried to blame the front desk for not working with their company which was also a lie, the man running the concierge was the most helpful person to me in the situation and even defended Alpha Tours. Despite me explaining to him that we were leaving at 3am that very night the only thing he offered was to let us on tomorrows tour which was 12 hours after our flight leaves Dubai. We asked if they could simply send another driver and they refused. This was a waste of a lot of money that I will never see again. While at the Copthorne Hotel I saw they had their own Desert Safari Tour Company that very distinctively dressed. If I could do it again, I would take my business to these people. I am sure they are better at their jobs than these people.
