“Fantastic trip”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

My wife and I had a limited time in Dubai and we wanted to pack in as much as we could. Top of our list was a trip to the desert. We hadn't really thought about a dune buggy drive but the concierge at our hotel recommended it and organised it for us.

And let me tell you, it was the best idea ever! As I said, we had a very short time frame and the staff at Delta Adventures were extremely accommodating. We were picked up at 7am from the hotel, got out to the desert in fog, which was an experience in itself. The fog cleared and we had a great blast in the buggy and did a bit of sand boarding, saw some camels and were back at the hotel before 11am.

Top ratings are easily deserved, the staff were great and very professional, we got a bit of a tour and and a bit of a 4x4 ride in the desert as added bonuses. Excellent value for money and if you're in that part of the world and want to see a bit of the desert, get in touch with these guys, you'll neither regret nor forget the experience.

“Experience of a lifetime..!!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

The drive to the starting point, the buggy ride, getting stuck in the sand for pushing the limits, sand-boarding.. it was time and money well spent.. I have vivid memories of my middle east visit but this is up there top..!! Our gang of 8 thoroughly enjoyed the outing and they are also of the same opinion.. Kudos to Delta Adventures for putting up a superb package.. I have had people asking me about the experience and the uniqueness of it, and i just said "It surely doesnt disappoint"..

“Great dune buggy experience just outside Dubai”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

A professional ran, and thoroughly enjoyable dune buggy adventure in the desert. We were collected from our hotel in Central Dubai (in a decent off road 4x4) and driven out to some remote sand dunes in the desert where (after a short safety brief) we got an hour (with a just a couple of break stops in between) to have fun with some powerful buggys in convoy-like formation. It's great fun and almost counter-intuitive to floor the gas heading sideways into a climbing dune! Definitely a highlight of our short trip to Dubai! Highly recommended if you've got a morning to spare.

“Amazing day out, unforgettable experience”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

Thanks to Joe and the team for an amazing Dune Buggy adventure experience in the desert.

Despite a busy schedule, Joe was able to accommodate my group and we had an absolute ball. Joe picked us up in the Wrangler and took us out to the desert. When we got there, after deflating the tires, we had a little dune bash in the Jeep until we met the guys with the dune buggies.

After a safety briefing we headed off in convoy for what would have been an hour or so of driving. These buggies are so much fun. They custom build them using 1.6l Honda Civic engines, so they are much more responsive than some of the smaller buggies other tour groups offer. Lots of fun going up and down the dunes, getting a little sideways but never in danger.

We stopped a couple of times on the tour. Once for a fun photo opportunity on top of the dunes, and once for a spot of sand-boarding.

I can't recommend this highly enough. Joe and the team were completely professional and friendly, and we felt safe at all times. Extremely good value for money, for an unforgettable desert experience. The desert is amazing and beautiful - completely isolated in all directions, and stunning to see.

Thanks Joe and the crew from Delta. My team thought this was the "best conference activity" they have ever done.

“Great fun!!! Dont Miss!!!”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

I was in the middle of a business trip to Dubai when a close friend here highly recommend me to do the overnight desert stay along with the desert safari experience with Delta Adventures. I always wanted to experience the raw desert way of life and what better way than to do it with a highly trained team of people who knew the in and outs of desert here like the palm of their hand.

To start off with we were collected from our location on time and headed off to the desert location where the team had assembled their famous 1500cc custom made off road dune buggies.

The package along with the over night stay in the desert with all amenities also included self driven dune buggie rides, sand boarding and also passenger drives with their extremely talented drivers in one of their 4X4's.

At the start they briefed us elaborately on the rules and quick tips on how to ride the buggies. Safety was always taken care of at every phase.

The experience of driving these powerful machines over the dunes in a safe controlled manner was very exhilarating indeed. Time was well managed so we could enjoy taking awesome pictures of the desert, herd of camels and the setting sun. Also in between we stopped for a couple of sand boarding sessions which was well worth the effort.

All in all this is one of the best highlights of my trip to the middle east and I really recommend all to try out Delta adventures for a once in a lifetime experience.
