Cons of Going on Dune Buggy Ride Dubai

While trying out dune buggy rides surely sounds like a fun activity here are 3 disadvantages to keep in mind if you are planning such a tour:

  • Physically Demanding Activity

Dune buggy riding is a physically demanding activity, and therefore, one must be fit and have good stamina to drive a buggy over challenging areas. Some people who have medical complications like heart problems or pain in the muscles should not participate in it unless a doctor gives his approval.

  • Costs

Dune buggy rides in Dubai are expensive compared to other desert adventures like dirt biking and ATV quad biking. The costs are reasonable given the safety features the buggy comes with, plus if you book the models with higher seating capacity they cost more whereas an ATV is only suitable for solo tours. The buggy tour pricing starts at around 800 AED, while quad bikes begin at around 500-700 AED. The 2 and 4-seater models are best for group and family rides, and these cost more as well.

So if you are low on budget these tours are not the best choice for you.

  • Hot Weather Conditions

Dune buggy tours take place in Dubai deserts where temperatures are extremely hot during day time. Even in winter, it’s around 35-37 degrees Celsius. Those who are not accustomed to the hot conditions of the desert should avoid going on such a tour.

Instead, book a tour around the evening or nighttime if possible or in December and January when the weather is a little pleasant. Even then, you must book in advance because it’s peak tourist season.


Dune buggy rides are surely one of the exciting and adventurous activities to do in Dubai. The experience of riding in the deserts and exploring the beautiful surroundings is a memorable one.

However, one must be aware of what the tour entails and whether it suits your budget and health or not. We hope after reading these pros and cons you can make a decision accordingly. For more information and affordable buggy packages, you can contact Best Dune Buggy Dubai.
