Overpriced Dessert Safari Tour Joke Dec 05, 2008
The ad promised more than it delivered. We were picked up from our hotel and then driven just outside of Dubai to the desert. Our driver was blasting the music in the car while he chatted on his mobile. First stop was a place where we can buy water and use the toilets. The tour promised unlimited drinks and yet we have not been offered one since getting on the 4x4. He also failed to tell us that we we had stopped was where we would go dune bashing with an ATV which all the guys in the jeep wanted to do. He motioned and grumbled something that none of us understood. Then we went on dune bashing with the 4X4 that took all of 5 minutes. When asked when we would go dune bashing with an ATV, he said we wont because he already asked us if we wanted to go and no one said anything. Then we sat and waited on top of the hill for all the other cars to arrive. After about an hour and half of doing nothing but sitting in the car, all the other cars arrived and we headed off to another sand hill to watch the sunset. I've seen better sunset including the sun setting on the gulf from Atlantis Hotel. After that we were taken to where we would be dining. When we go there, there was a camerl ride...a 30 second ride. The food was awful and the coffe tasted like it was instant. The show was horrible as well. I've seen better belly dancing at a friend's party in North America than here. There was no horse dancing show as promised or sand boarding as promised as well since it is much too dark in the desert to be doing anything. Ovrall, this tour was a joke. Would not recommend it to anyone. If your tour include the Bedoin or Hatta, do that one. I heard good things about it but can't confirm. But that tour sounds more believalbe as it is all day. This tour offered by Atlanta and the others that offer this tour as well in the same spot is a rip-off.
