Arabian Adventures activities in Dubai

Has anyone booked any Dubai-based adventures/activities through Arabian Adventures?

I saw an advert for their activities on board an Emirates flight and was wondering if the activities are good and also if they're good value for money.

I did book a "driving thru the desert" package. It wasn't bad. You sit in a heavily modified Toyota Landcruiser (roll-cage) and drive in packs of +/- 10 cars up and down dunes. To be clear: It's not sightseeing. Just smashing in a car thru the desert. I thought that it was rather good value: They pick you up at the hotel, drive you all the way out into the desert, drive for 30 to 45 minutes thru dunes, make a photo stop in time for the sunset, then had to a "camp", where a small buffet, a small show, sand surfboarding, camel riding, etc... await. I can't remember how much it was per person, but it was pretty fun for a day.

Whether their activity is good value for money depends however on the activity in question (E.g. You don't need a guide to discover the old parts of Dubai).

Thanks for the advice, WorldLux. I see from the Arabian Adventures site that you could just go directly to the venue in some cases and book directly for a lot less money. But I think on the desert excursions it sounds a lot better as they pick you up from the hotel.

Well, I had book last year Dubai Package, However I witnessed decent services. Their pick up & drop services and desert camping were quiet ordinary as I was expecting more. Overall a decent experience.
