I had booked for the first time through Headout. I was looking out for some experiential trips with a sense of authentic desert experience instead of the regular Dubai trips. This was ideal for that and I completely enjoyed the dune bashing.
My husband and I went on this trip. It was such a beautiful market with handicrafts and souvenirs, I bought a lot of stuff for folks back home. We had booked a lot of tickets on Headout so we had accumulated some cashback, using that this car trip came out almost free!
It’s an adventurous day trip out of Dubai. You don’t have to bother with renting your own car or driver; it’s a perfectly planned trip with a hotel pickup. We took the lunch deal and got a bigger discount.
