I loved Dubai, it is a new energetic emerging city. It is fun to get a glimpse of its desert heritage. We took our 2 teens and everyone had a great time. Guide was very knowledgeable. Land Rover ride, Falcon show, desert scenery, Bedoin camp, camel rides, henna, dancing and dining under the star
Phenomenal! An absolute must! Khairy, our guide, and the Platinum Frontier team made the experience authentic yet posh and very memorable. The tour is worked around sunset so exact time to start was dependent on the sun. Communication could not have been more thorough through email and direct calls to our hotel. We had no confusion about what to expect. Whisking through the sand dunes in an open air jeep is indescribable for those at any age. We are a party of ladies which include two age 70. Khairy treated the older ladies with absolute care and thoughtfulness without making them feel old ensuring they could get in and out of the 1950 jeep effortlessly, helping them climb the sand dunes and making sure their insistence to ride the camel was met. Their excitement was infectious. Every detail throughout the tour has been considered. Being ladies, we felt extremely safe. We were advised on clothing to get us from daytime heat to desert evenings. Headgear was provided to shield us from sand and to offer a bit of authenticity, Khairy spent endless time offering information about the tour, the culture and the history. The dinner was fabulous and really not to be missed! The camp is expertly done and truly provides a feeling of immersion into another time. A wide range of food was included all of which had a significant importance to the history while still being tasty for today's palette. HIGHLY recommend. If you have older generations, do consider the private jeep as this gives your guide the ability to customize the experience based on need which is exactly what Khairy did for us.
This was an amazing experience. The team was courteous and professional. The food was delicious. A must do while in Dubai!
Great experience that the whole family enjoyed. Our driver, Paolu was very friendly, the desert setting was fun, and the food very tasty.
Thank you to all the team for helping to create some wonderful memories!
The 4x4 experience was awesome. The group that handled it was courteous and professional. The food was delicious. Especially a must do while in Dubai!
This is my second review. Stated earlier that the Platinum Heritage tour was excellent. Driver who did hotel pick up was timely and enthusiastic. Gave a great orientation to tour. Was as described. Food and hospitality was outstanding. Emirati activities were wonderful and entertaining. Loved the camel rides, henna painting.
Excellent tour. Our guide was very informative telling us a lot about life in Dubai as well as details of what we were seeing. Timing was good and we didn't feel rushed. Might have liked a slightly longer falconry display.
Excellent tour and one not to be missed. Excellent guide- great explanations about local scenery and activities. Drove to Conservation section of desert where we exchanged a minibus for the vintage Land Rover. Decked out in traditional headgear which we could keep then set off into the desert to see wildlife Arabian Oryx and Antelope and drive over dunes that resembled a roller coaster ride!!! As the sun set, watched a falconry display then drove to a luxurious encampment where we had an amazing 4 course traditional meal whilst watching traditional dance. An amazing trip!!!
This is simply the best tour on offer, may not be the cheapest but worth every penny.
Fantastic day and evening, had a great guide, spectacular sites, light refreshments and then a evening and dinner in camp! Dancing, henner tattoos, Bubble pipes great company life long memories
Our guide, Abid, was excellent. He explained everything and gave us plenty of time to enjoy the various parts of the tour: Land Rover drive, meal, dancing, etc. There was so much food and it was all delicious!
Excellent tour, a little expensive but I highly recommended for people aged over 60... you can savor the adventure of a desert tour but at the same time is a relaxing experience....
Great trip! Breathtaking view of the desert. We had so much fun cruising through the desert with the landrover. We watched the sun going down while sitting on a carpet, drinking a glass of sparcling juice and watching the falcon show. The camp where we had dinner was very cosy. Great atmosphere. The food was delicious. All in all a great trip. My advice: The have a professional photographer who makes some nice pictures in the beginning and in the desert. You're free to choose if he shall take pictures of you or not. Even if he takes some pictures of you and you decide not to take them after watching them on the ipad, it is not a problem at all. But the pictures are great and we bought them for a fair price.
This tour was amazing. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. It was a great introduction to Dubai and a pleasant way to spend and afternoon and evening in the desert.
This was a great trip. There wasn't any dune bashing if that's what you're looking for but watching the sun set over the dessert during the falcon demonstration made up for that in my opinion. Definitely take a wrap or jacket as it cools off quickly as soon as the sun sets. The dancer, the food and the incredible views across the desert were incredible. I wore sandals and took them off to walk in the sand and was glad I did as my husband dumped tons of sand out of his shoes when we returned to the hotel!
A must do trip on a Dubai stopover. Great guides, great views and a great meal. One of the best touristy things I have ever done. Highly recommend.
The trip was amazing. The driver was great. it was the best money we spent and to let you know they have restrooms there and the food was good and the camp was great also
Excellent experience. Recommend to anyone remotely interested in the geography and history of the UAE. The whole experience was professional and excellently run. Harry was an amazing guide. Must do this tour when in Dubai.
The tour was everything we were hoping for. Great guide and great location. Our teenage daughters loved it.
Thoroughly enjoyed all the activities on this trip. From crossing the dessert in our landrover to relaxing at dinner. Our guide, Hamsa, was very knowledgeable and added to the enjoyment. A great trip to get the experience of the dessert and dessert life. Our son really enjoyed the informative falcon display.
This was a highlight of an extraordinary trip to Dubai. Abi sp?, our guide, was warm and informative. A wonderful experience!!
This was a fantastic experience from start to finish ! The personalized attention from all tour staff, Land Rover ride, food, entertainment and education were all very memorable. My family thoroughly enjoyed the environment - this tour company has set the bar very high - I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Dubai.
