Totally awesome cultural expirience. My mom of 65 years of age and my aunt of 68 years of age and my nephew who is 15 years thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. It is most suitable for a widw/ broad age group
Fantastic from start to finish. We even got an informative tour of some of the city's attractions as we were in the car picking up guests.
We did the vintage Land Rover tour however some of the other guests were doing camel riding instead. I'd recommend the Land Rover tour as you still get the opportunity to do camel riding before eating the fabulous Arabian food at the Bedouin camp where the evening ends.
Thanks for a great experience.
Everything about this tour was brilliant. Loved the tour guide, the falconry exhibition was really interesting,the ride in the open land rover - in spite of being sandy - was great fun, the Bedouin dinner delicious and the camel ride was good fun too. We thoroughly recommend Platinum tours for this particular desert experience.
Exceptional dinner desert safari experience - great value as cost is not excessive and number of experiences is impressive. Began with very punctual hotel pickup, drive to the dessert with notable sites pointed out and a stop at a camel racing track. Desert experience was amazing - wildlife viewing, falconry exhibition, amazing, fresh, multi-course dinner with many options and dishes even for vegetarians like us, camel rides, intricate henna tattoos temporary, hookah tobacco water pipes and an exceptional astronomy talk laying on our backs. For a 50 year old city, authentic cultural experiences in Dubia are in very short supply and this terrific safari really highlighted our 3 day visit.
Absolutely fantastic. This tour group is first class from start to finish. We could not have been happier. There's a reason these guys are number one on TripAdvisor! One of the best parts about this group is that they are at least in some part owned by the ruler of Dubai, and hence they have special access to a conservation sand dune area that is very special to visit, and is where most of the tour takes place. Absolutely wonderful!!
Second time we have done a desert safari and this was by far the better :-
There are a lot of tours like this one but, this one is truly special because it is the only one company allowed in this part off the desert and therefore has some perks. The beduine camp is just wonderful, the meals, the camel ride, the music, everything is wonderful. They even have an astronomer with a potent telescope talking about the stars and how the beduine used them to navigate the desert at night. Request Tiago as your tour guide. This guy will go far beyond what it is supposed to be done by a tour guide. Excellent!
A great night, picked up on time by a very knowledgable tour guide Tiago, a great wealth of local history. Followed by a godd trip by vintage Land Rover trip through the nature reserve seeing the local gazelle and oryx followed by a great meal in the desert setting, lots of freshly mad food including soups, meats, salads and freshly made bread. A small camel ride and a bonus astronomy talk, which we found very interesting also with great views of the moon and Saturn through the telescope which had already been set up ready for us. A very pleasurable night.
The Luxury Desert Experience was absolutely AWESOME! My husband and I travel often, but this was by far our best excursion ever. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Dubai. It was the highlight of our trip. Our tour guide Tiago exceeded all of our expectations. From the moment he picked us up from our hotel until he dropped us off, he was professional and went above and beyond what was expected. He provided great information about Dubai and genuinely worked hard to make sure that we had an unforgettable experience. The other staff members at the camp were also a lot of fun and great hosts. All of the food was super tasty. I was adventurous and tried the camel which I recommend. Definitely book this experience!
Well structured evening of activities which didn't feel rushed. Food was excellent.
Absolutely fantastic. Very authentic , loved our guide Diego who was so informative and interesting. The food , camel rides, falconry demonstration , small group plus the Vintage Land Rovers all combined to be an amazing experience, would definitely recommend this Luxury Desert Experience !
This was a fantastic tour.
We were worried we might be sitting in an open top Land Rover in the summer sun. But the transfers are in air-conditioned Fort Territories or the like and when you finally get into the Land Rovers, the heat has dissipated and it is great being outdoors in the remarkable and inspiring desert.
As you move from dusk to night and finish your feast, you find yourself sitting in the picturesque camp feeling the balmy night breeze, absorbed with a decision about what entertainment to turn to next - a quick camel ride? henna tattoo? lying on lounges smoking a sheesha pipe? OK, it's only artificial for health reasons, but the whole thing is fantasy really!, or star gazing through a telescope?
You can not fail to love this experience. We warmly recommend it.
This is the BEST experience I had in Dubai. The drive to the desert was smooth with the driver giving us interesting information along the way. We were transferred to the Land Rover and was driven to the Conservation Reserve. There were stops along the way for photos. The venue for dinner was so amazingly pretty. The food were yummy and probably one of the best we had for our entire trip. After dinner, we had time to sit and chat and do star gazing. It feels totally romantic. A MUST DO if you are visiting Dubai.
This tour was fun from start to finish. Would totally recommend to anyone stopping in Dubai as a must do.
Driving through the desert on the back of the vintage land rover was lots of fun, the sunset over the desert dunes was beautiful, dinner - great food and ample of it. Couldn't fault the tour.
Magical evening safari tour for all the family including my 9 yen old daughter. Great food and hospitality.
Excellent tour right from the beginning with the greeting and promptness of our tour leader. He had great knowledge and a good sense of humour and made the night a terrific one. It was a truly authentic experience of the food, dance and the animals we saw in the desert. Value for money and very enjoyable.
Really a great experience. Long way out to the wildlife park but so amazing when you get there. To ride in the Land Rover and get anArabian massage over the sandy tracks, quite hair raising but worth it. The food and entertainment wonderful and would recommend it to understand desert life
Highly recommended! We really enjoyed this tour. Highlight was the desert safari but the other aspects (falconry display and Bedouin camp) were also good. Food was plentiful and interesting. Our driver/guide (Tiago) was excellent.
Tour was amazing Artem are guide was very informative .. Lots of opportunities for some great holiday pictures .. Evening dinner was great and you must try the Camal :)
Just fantastic...it exceeded our expectations. It was professional, relaxed, was value for money, and most importantly, great fun.
We had a wonderful afternoon/evening out in the desert. If I would suggest one thing to do in Dubai, it would definitely be this tour. It was so much fun and the meal so delicious I could not fault it!
Outstanding - a real highlight of our trip! A great and very accessible way to experience the desert with not too rough vintage Land Rover drives through the dunes and stunning wildlife along the way, camel rides on arrival and a memorable dinner. All the staff were great!
