Our family of four recently took a Rayna Tours morning trip into the nearby desert. Our driver, Faruq, was excellent - full of interesting information, humour and a very good driver (as he negotiated the dunes !).
Going in the morning is recommended if you don’t want to be a part of the much bigger and more commercial/touristy, evening tours.
The camel ride was fun and something a bit different - but only do it if you don’t mind the fact that you’ll be aiding and abetting them being used for tourists’ pleasure.
Overall, we would recommend Rayna - thanks to Faruq for a fun morning !.
Easy to book with couple emails, easy payment and no hazzle.
Deal was to include pickup from hotel (original estimate 0830), dune bashing, possibility to ride camel, quad, etc. And drop back to hotel.
Pickup was done around 09:00, another customer pickup and off we went. We drove around 1h, stopped for local shop, where they lowered tire pressure. Possibility for washroom activities also, but dont expect Hilton hotel style ;)
Dune bashing was great fun. Driver drove up and down for about 20 minutes and then stopped to some kind camp. There was possibility to take pictures, drive quad or ride camel. Thise cost extra off course. Fresh drinks for free.
After about 1h-1,5h we took off and the driver dropped us back to hotel.
Nice driver, polite. A bit mass style safari still. And I expected dune to be a bit different, bigger..
I would do it again after couple of years.
100% perfect tour to see only the desert in 4 hours with the family.

My husband & I booked last minute, all good, picked us up in the morning from our hotel, we were sharing the car with another 2 guys from the US...i thought we were lucky that it was 2 guys & was looking forward to some hard core dune bashing...i was wrong...one of the guys was a 'girl'...he felt like throwing up & we weren't even going fast...ruined it for us that's for sure. Lesson to be learnt, hire a private car, no sharing as you never know who the other passengers are! The driver was fantastic, the desert was amazing, we were lucky it was a quiet day so it was just us there! The guys from the US decided to hire the quad bikes which was perfect for us as we wanted to do a camel ride! The young man who joined us guiding the camel was lovely & so we had a beautiful camel ride, it was so perfect & peaceful & exactly what we were hoping for! We returned to the camp to find out that the guys from the US had an awful time, one of them, the 'girl', fell off the quad bike & broke both his front teeth & so now he really had something to complaint about...the driver of our tour did make it clear to them that because it had rained the day before, the sand was hard & so it was dangerous to ride the quad bikes & for them to be very careful & not go fast but boys will be boys...so we rushed back to the car & took off driving slow in case the injured guy was going to throw up & that was the end of that...i would love to return to the desert but in a private car! #lovedubai #safari #desertsafari Thank you Rayna Tours, Anthea & Peter
