Red Dunes Desert Safari with BBQ Dinner and Transfers from Dubai

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Select tour language
There is possibly no better way to explore the compelling desert landscape than a Red Dune Safari. Blending the exquisiteness of the desert with the exhilaration and joy of off-road adventure, this is a desert trip like no other.
  • Full desert red-dune experience from Dubai with return hotel transfers
  • Hit some of Dubai’s highest dunes in a 4WD vehicle and take sunset photos
  • Camel ride, sandboarding, henna art, barbecue, and live shows in one trip
  • Up the adrenaline with quad biking (additional cost), available on request
What to Expect
Begin with pickup from your Dubai hotel and sit back in your shared 4-wheel drive vehicle as you travel to the Al Lahbab region of high red dunes. Go off road for a high-speed drive up and down the slopes, feeling your 4WD slip and slide down the soft, shifting sands. Then, take photos of the sunset before your driver whisks you to a Bedouin-inspired campsite. Set off on a camel ride, try your skill at sandboarding, and take your pick from the cultural and sports activities on offer. Choose to puff a shisha (water pipe), get a henna tattoo, and dress in Arabian robes for souvenir photos. And, if you wish, let rip across the sands aboard a quad bike (additional cost). Afterward, watch belly dance and whirling dervish (tanoura) shows, and dig into a barbecue buffet dinner before your experience concludes with a Dubai hotel drop-off.

We booked this in August from Australia, on the voucher it said pick up time was between 3 and 3:30 pm. We waited until 5pm and no one showed. At around 4pm I got concerned and got the hotel to check. At first they said there was no record, the concierge spent the next 4 hours

Dear Guest, We are sorry for such a bad experience. We take our customer's feedback very seriously. As today only our feedback team had received your mail and they have also responded to the same. As per the investigation, our co-ordination team had sent you an e-mail at 11:45 AM yesterday to inform the change in the pick up time. The updated pick time was 2:30 - 3:00 PM. Our driver arrived at hotel at 2:30 and was looking for you at reception, hotel Lobby entrance. Even he tried to call you in your room. But the call went unanswered. Again our co-ordination team had sent you e-mail along with driver details stating the driver is waiting for you. Our feedback team had already shared the necessary screenshots with you over mail. We are sorry to hear that you missed onto the tour. Thank you for highlighting the issue. Regards!!

Rayna Tours are a scam. Please do not ruin your one time dune bashing experience by their rude and unprofessional staff. After the horrible experience, I even raised a concern with their customer service team, but they are equally incompetent.
