The Desert Safari tour wasn't perfect, but as long as you have your expectations set right, then it is good value for money.
There was a lot of communication before the trip, which eased any issues with pickup. Driver arrived early, he was friendly and lively.
Quad biking was enjoyable (a lot of people around though), then it was off for the Dune Bashing, where we switched to a 4x4 for the experience.
The food and drinks at the dinner weren't great, but this is standard when they cater for hundreds of people. You aren't paying for the great food, you're paying for the experience.
The shows were entertaining. We opted for the VIP area (extra 50 dirhams per person) which avoided waiting in long lines for food, and provided comfortable seating.
They said the tour started from 3:00pm so they have picked up us at 2:00pm is reasonable but they need to pick up 2nd, 3rd and 4th group of people together which make us arrive the Desert spot around 4:30pm. Therefore, we spend 2 and half hour in unreasonable point to point pick up. We think point to point pick up is a kind of superior service but if it go bad. All of us found that it is better to join a tour have 1 pack up point.
