Excellent value for money
"We asked for a desert safari which was tailored to our interests. We very quickly agreed on an itinerary and all of our questions were very quickly answered. With regard to price, our morning tour was one quarter of the price given by the hotel desk. We were met on time in a new clean 4x4. Our guide explained the order of our visits and gave us some interesting information about Dubai as we drove along. Our tour was very well put together and we were well looked after. My Trip buddy would recommend this guide to anyone looking for a quality tour at a very competitive rate. Book him, you will not be disappointed. "MyTripBuddyAbout local FarhanDubai, April 2022
Good and safe driver
"Farhan has been a very good driver. He knows very vell how to drive in the desert without any problem. I recomend it for all people, for young children also. My complimenti! "BarbaraAbout local FarhanDubai, March 2022
Perfect safari in Dubai with the most profesional guide
"We are very happy with our safari trip in Dubai. Very professional and supportive guide showed us the most beautiful dunes, organized quad ride and showed the most care for our group. Very easy communication with safari provider. Would recommend if one would like to have secure and pleasant time in dunes :). BIG thank you!"AgneAbout local FarhanDubai, February 2022
"Great experience! Farhan and his colleague were excellent, friendly guides taking us to see the sunrise. They arrived on time and waited for 10 minutes while we finished getting ready with no problems. Took us out for some serious sand bashing and an amazing, beautiful view. I would recommend the sunrise trip as you beat the crowds and it is nice and quiet. Farhan's colleague was a really good driver and knows how to navigate the dunes. We then went looking for the perfect dune to sandboard down and had a great time. 10/10!!"HelenAbout local FarhanDubai, February 2022
Great personal service and a fun day...
"We had a great morning in the desert with some serious sand dune bashing, ATV and camel rides and sand boarding. Farhan was right on time, well prepared and a good guide. Will definitely recommend to my friends and future guests. "OkaiAbout local FarhanDubai, January 2022
"Our group (consisting of 6 adults) booked an "all day tour" of Dubai from 9AM to 4PM with Sruthy. Unfortunately, she injuried her leg prior to our arrival and could not perform the tour, but sent her husband to take her place. He did a very very good job of showing us all the sights. He was very friendly, gracious, and accommodating. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. He made it a point to ensure we saw everything Sruthy had promised we would see on the tour. Overall, we had a great tour. It should be noted that the vehicle he arrived in (with a designated driver) was excellent. It was clean, modern, and very spacious (for the 6 of us). "JoeAbout local SruthyDubai, August 2021
"I contacted Farhan for a Private Desert Safari. Mossadir was the fantastic driver that came to pick up us at 8 a.m. at the hotel. He is a really good driver and a very nice and empathic person that brought me, my wife and my 8 years old son to the most remote dunes of the desert. This experience has been fantastic."drAbout local FarhanDubai, January 2020
"Wonderful experience between desert and nature! Our guide was awesome!!! He told us the history of Dubai, he drove through the dunes and bring us to drive the quad. At the end : flamingo watching !!!! Beautiful place and great guide! 😉"GiorgioAbout local FarhanDubai, April 2019

"We enjoyed our desert tour, Farhan's driver was really professional! We has the possibility to personalize the safari and we asked to go in the afternoon to see sunset, good choice! I suggest Farhan's tour with any doubt. "DeboraAbout local FarhanDubai, April 2018
