Overview

Rumble and roar over the sands of Dubai on a quad bike or desert buggy experience. With an expert guide, hop inside an air-conditioned vehicle and travel into the desert. Then, climb aboard your chosen transport — an open-top desert buggy with automatic gears or a quad bike — put on the supplied helmet and goggles, and after instructions, take off on an exciting ride. Follow dusty tracks and zip across plains in convoy behind your guide. Stop halfway for a soda and photos before zooming back to base.

Departure Time

7:00 AM
Choose a desert buggy or quad bike tour when you book. Then, start your desert experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Board your air-conditioned minivan or other vehicle with your guide and travel into the desert. After approximately one hour, arrive at the base where the quad bikes and desert buggies — the latter with automatic gears — await.

After a safety briefing, put on the provided helmet and goggles, and take a seat on your chosen vehicle.

Get instructions from your guide, and take a practice ride to get comfortable with the controls.

Then, open the throttle and set off in convoy on a ride across the sandy terrain. Bump along dusty tracks and roar around small dunes and ridges — it’s a serious thrill.

Enjoy the views and midway through your ride, stop to enjoy a complimentary soda and snap photos of the desert expanses.

Your guide will accompany your convoy throughout and offer tips so you enjoy your ride to the max.

Pick up speed as you gain in confidence and then wind your way back to base.

With your ride finished, leave your quad or buggy and return to your transfer vehicle. Relax on your drive back to Dubai, where your experience concludes with a hotel drop-off.

My group did the short quad bike tour. This was a great tour for someone that is looking to fill their itinerary with a half-day activity. We only had the morning to fit this in and we were able to go door-to-door in about 4 hours. Our pickup at the hotel was prompt and we were able to enjoy a quick ride through the desert. We had a few people with no driving experience NYers! and the guides were patient. You can tell safety is the first priority as they don't let you wander off or try any crazy things. Great experience and would recommend to anyone looking to try this outs in Dubai.

My wife and I really enjoyed the buggy tour, but wish it would have lasted a bit longer to give us a bit more value for our dollars. Buggy ride should be longer than the trip to and from the hotel! The driver was very professional and drove according to Internationally accepted standards, so we all felt safe on the roads to and from the ride The guide was very conscious about safety and our comfort, so we really enjoyed the whole dune experience. Great FUN!

The driver picked us up at the hotel 30 minutes to late. No toilet avaliable at the driving facilty, few photo options (like taking pictures of camels). No water or soda included in the price. The driving was funny, though.
