We chose to privatize a car for the 4 of us having a 2 year old daughter and a 6 year old, we wanted to avoid too sporty driving in the dunes. Our driver Habib picked us up at the foot of our Airbnb. We were able to install our child seats in the 4x4 then we left for 1 hour before entering the desert. Habib was great, he explained a lot of things to us about Dubai, it was very interesting. (FYI we spoke in English) Then after deflating the tires of the 4x4 we entered the desert and Habib completely adapted to our requests. He played a little in the dunes with the car but as soon as the children got scared he slowed down. He then dropped us off at the camp where we were able to take pictures in the dunes at sunset, take a ride on camels and relax a bit before dinner show. The dinner was plentiful and quite good (a mixture of grilled meats on the barbecue, rice, pasta, vegetables, there was a bit of everything) and the show with a dancer and then a fire-eater. Direct return to dubai at the foot of our apartment. Frankly advised with his eyes closed and our driver was really nice and attentive to our needs.
