Great experience all around. From pick up and drop off to the front door of our hotel and everything in between. Our driver deserves special mention..he was absolutely amazing and had years of experience so felt very safe. He was very personable and knowledgable about the country itself and was great to point out extra info along the way. Would highly recommend!

This was an amazing evening. Orient tours knows how to treat their guest! They picked us up right outside hotel near Dubai airport which was perfect! Our guide and the team for the evening was so much fun and made sure we had plenty of time to enjoy everything. The dune bashing was a blast - yup, I did scream a few times whipping around in the sand. We visited a camel farm and leaned about the one vs two humps, learned about the national bird of the UAE even though they are not native, rode a camel (not long enough), sand boarded, received a henna tattoo, the shows were very entertaining – the belly dancer was stunning – Disney and Busch Gardens has nothing compared to this and the dinner was fabulous.
If we ever have a chance to return to Dubai, this will be the first thing we schedule it was so much fun!

The tour gave us a brief insight into Dubai culture and scenery. As well, we had the thrill of the Dune bashing, falcon mastery, camel riding and live entertainment during dinner which was a great buffet. The tour ran smoothly and we were looked after all the way.
