What a fantastic time. This visit is worth every penny, our guide Housamme included a stop to see the racing camels, these animals are lean and in beautiful condition, worth a visit. We then arrived at the start of our journey into the reserve we hopped on to an open top 1950's jeep, we were all given head scarves to cover our heads from the sand. Our journey included the history of the desert, our guide housamme explained that the Ghaf tree was an important part of a Bedouins life as the tree was used for medicinal purposes, the desert boasts of all sorts of animals but on this occasion we were only able to spot an oynx in the distance, still a beautiful sight. We stopped of to walk in the sand dunes, I have never seen sand that is so fine, just beautiful. Our next port of call was the falconry, were we were given a glass of juice on entrance and mats to sit on to enjoy the falconry display. On our way for our meal we did a bit of Dune bashing, which was quite fun. On entrance to the Bedouin camp, we were given the history of their coffee, we were shown the various stages from grinding the coffee bean to the finished product, and then given a taster of the coffee. Our guide Housamme showed us to our table, we were greeted with various salads, Arab breads and sauces, the starters were delicious. There were various cold drinks, bottled water, fizzy drinks and hot drinks, coffee, tea and hot chocolate to choose from. We lined up to a hot buffet, the meat on offer was lamb, camel in a sauce, chicken kebabs, rice, all deliciously cooked, deserts included honey donuts and fresh fruit. The entertainment included a lady dancing the hair dance and a group of guys dancing the traditional Arab way. We enjoyed the activities which included riding a camel and having a henna tattoo. the whole experience was just wonderful and helped with the fact we had the most amazing guide, whom we never stopped laughing with. Houssame thank you, you made our trip to the desert a memorable occasion.
Excelente escolha. Pedi um tour em português e nosso guia foi espetacular . Artonio Tony, alem de bastante conhecimento sobre a cidade e o tour era bem simpatico e sempre pronto a responder nossas duvidas. O grupo era de vários países, por isso o idioma predominante era o ingles, mas não foi um problema pra nos. Tour dividido em varias etapas, todas muito interessantes. Eu e meu marido somos vegetarianos e mesmo assim pudemos aproveitar o jantar oferecido, pois tínham varias opções de comidas vegetarianas. Tudo muito gostoso. Recomendamos muito esse passeio.
The is an excellent experience. First it allows you to do something in the morning, or if you want a late night before, you can sleep extremely late and still have a days worth of activity. The guide enhanced the experience. As American who have never been anywhere, you really get to experience some different culture. If you are the outgoing type and interactive with the experience, the guide and the other guest in your group, this very well may be the highlight of your vacation. My family never ate camel before. We ate and drank everything they put in front of us, and it was a middle eastern type Thanksgiving feast.
Luxury Desert Experience was the highlight of our Dubai trip. We totally enjoyed this amazing tour.
It was a great experience in the desert. The guides were very professional and helpful. The tour had the right pace and helped experience the desert closely.
This was great tour. We really enjoyed the dinner and all the activities. I would also like to thank Viator for fixing my transportation issue. The customer service team really did a great job.
It was an excellent experience with Platinum Heritage! From the pick-up until the end all was perfect. Out guide Fahad was great vey friendly and informative person. The vintage car, stop-overs in between, the camp including henna painting, camel ride, dancing show, water-pipe and last but not least delicous dinner menu, all was fantastic. The tour is a bit pricey than the others but all worthed!
Highlight of our Dubai experience. Hamdi was great and knowledgeable. Platinum Heritage does it right!!! We met some people who did this tour with a different company and they did not enjoy it as much.
Superbe journée, pick up directement au port Rashid, aventure et bouffe incroyable, nous le recommandons fortement, personnel courtois,

Oscar our guide was like everything else in this wonderful country AMAZING. The entire Experience was everything I wanted it to be. Hotel pick-up was in a modern, air-conditioned SUV which Oscar drove expertly and also chatted on such a friendly and knowledgeable manner. Transfer to the vintage Land Rovers at city edge, and Oscar putting on our desert headwear was fun the drive was wonderful the falconry display was awesome the feasting, the desert camp, dancing, shisha pipe, relaxing under the moon on beautiful rugs and cushions was a great way to start our too-short four day visit to Dubai UAE and Oman. Thank you Oscar and crew. Excellence.
Great experience and well delivered. Thoroughly recommend this tour as a highlight of any Dubai experience.

This was hands down one of my favorite experiences in Dubai. After having done a few desert safaris, this one was my favorite by far. Nothing beats riding in a convertible 1950s Vintage Land Rover through the Dubai Desert (the cars are in excellent condition). A dream for Indiana Jones fans! Our guide was very informative and had a great sense of humor. Along the way we saw desert wildlife, had a few photo stops, and got to see a short falconry show. On our drive from the falconry show to the luxury Bedouin camp, we caught an incredible sunset desert sunset. The colors were amazing in the twilight! The luxury Bedouin-style camp was amazing as well. The set up was so relaxing and the food was delicious. We never felt rushed through the whole night - we had plenty of time to enjoy the food, ride a camel, get a henna, smoke shisha, and enjoy the show. After the show, you can relax and we even got extra time to smoke shisha while enjoying the desert starry night. I would highly recommend this safari to anyone who wants a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Dubai!
Totally enoyable expereince, well organised, on time, exciting with all consideration given to clients.
We had a great guide called Wisam who was fun and very well spoken offering loads of interesting information throughout the tour.
The location was quite magical with amazing colours in the twilight. The Bedouin camp offered beautiful and plentiful food it was relaxed and thoroughly enoyable. So glad we had this experience!
Amazing experience! I really loved the Land Rover experience and the Bedouin camp. All flawessly implemented. It made a real experience of Dubai!! Our guide , Oscar, was excellent!!!
Exactly as advertised! We were picked up, on time, at our hotel and driven in a comfortable van one hour out to the desert, where we boarded our jeep. Our guide had been with the company since it started, and was very knowledgeable. The jeeps are in excellent condition, and we had a really nice 45 minute drive around the reserve, stopping for photos etc. The falconry show was excellent - she did a great job explaining all about it and let us hold the falcon. Dinner in the camp was excellent - heaps of food of different kinds, and they love to serve you big helpings, so go slow! All in all, a very pleasant evening!
