Great time out, excellent value.

We hand an excellent Desert Safari experience with oasis palm.From the reservation process part till the drop off, everything was perfect. Everybody was very professional and friendly. We had a very good time on the Land cruiser, this safari is just amazing and desert is very beautiful.The dinner was excellent , with veg and non veg food. Everything was done smoothly and we got to experience everything on time. Special regards to our guide.

We had a desert safari tour with Akbar the Team leader, realy enjoyed the day, would have been 5 stars if the actual desert safari in the jeep was longer. The BBQ was realy nice and filling.
The lady that did the belly dancing was very good looking.
One thing i didnt like was when the tourists sat down to smoke the sheesha, some of the tour guides would come in and grab a sheesha pipe and smoke it, whilst the tourists who payed for that experience were still sitting and waiting for there turn.

Was enjoyable but not to the level we had been led to believe. Have had more exciting rides over sands dunes in my own Series 2 Landrover back home in New Zealand but I guess it is not of the same value as an air conditioned modern Toyota 4x4. Dinner in Bedouin camp was OK and entertainment average - was she a real Belly Dancer of local origin?? Hoped to get a camel ride but with only 3 camels, a large group and night falling was not possible. Overall, however, as only had a 3 day stopover in Dubai we were limited to the number of activities we could do and this fitted in OK and would recommend it to others looking to fill in an afternoon/evening at a relatively small cost

We had a great time on this excursion. Our driver picked us up on time. He was polite, spoke good English and he explained what our trip would involve. The dune bashing was great fun. Our driver was very proficient handling the jeep. We never felt unsafe or afraid, it was a bit bumpy, but lots of fun! The camp was well organised. The BBQ was very good, with a good salad selection, hummus, tabbouleh, chick peas, dhal, rice and kebabs. I had a henna tattoo, and smoked a humbly bubbly pipe. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the safari, the dunes are awesome and extensive. You really get a sense of what it's like in the desert. I would recommend it!

This is a tourist trap!

We went with oasis tours - who are affiliated with desert safari. They advertise sand boarding - what a joke. One tiny dune and one "sand board" for 20 people. The driver was experienced but, the dune bashing went for way too long and left us incredibly car sick especially since they got us to sit in the very back of the 4WD on those tiny extra seats in the boot - not appropriate since we paid the same. The food is Indian - Dahl and tikka chicken - apparently we were no longer in Dubai? - and, not nice. The camel ride again is a joke. The two camels walk in a circle for 10 meters. The belly dancer? A Russian that was out of time with the music. The music was played from an iPod. There was seriously nothing genuine about this experience. This was an absolute waste of our time and money - maybe the other operators are more professional but, oasis/desert safari were a joke.
