Don't wear mesh sneaker, you will get sand in your shoes. Best to wear boots or something you dont mind getting sandy. Food was amazing and plenty to eat. Bring a bottle of water for the ride from Dubai but after you arrive to the desert drinks were provided. Restroom facilities are available upon arrival in the desert and again at the camp where food is served. Bring a jacket for when the sun goes down if in the chillier months. This was the best Viator experience we took in Dubai.
I highly recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Dubai. Our guide,Khairy, was very knowledgable about all things Dubai.
Driving to the reserve he gave us an insight into the history of Dubai as well as an insight into modern day Dubai.
When we reached the reserve we transferred to the vintage land rovers and the drive through the desert was a great experience, and surprisingly comfortable. The camp,site was beautifully presented ............and again very well organised. The food available on the evening was of a high standard and there was plenty. Lots of fun having a henna tattoo, camel riding and enjoying the traditional dance.
A must do on your visit to Dubai and a big thank you to Khairy for making the trip so enjoyable.
The Desert Experience delivered as advertised. We are experienced and frequent world travelers and we try to pick an unique experience in destinations which will represent the culture and history of the locale and also provide us with memories. This Desert Experience certainly did. From an informative guide Hossan Jr and the driver Moussa congrats on Cameroon victory over Senegal to carefully planned itinerary, we were never disappointed.
I was in Dubai for a trade show so I scheduled this Desert Experience as an opportunity to get my sales team together. The event was a big hit and everyone had a great time. Our host was Mahmoud, who was absolutely great, and he picked us up at our hotel in Dubai and gave us very special attention throughout our tour. I would absolutely recommend this tour for anyone that wants to experience the great adventure that surrounds Dubai.
It was my first time and i am very pleased that we have used this Company. All people involved in the tour were extremely nice, kind and knowledgeable. Yasser, who was in charge of our tour was great! He was very funny, educated , fluent in a few languages, kind and he made sure we had a great experience and amazing time! Huge Thanks to him and the Company for the memories!!
What an incredible experience! Our guide, Yasser was very knowledgeable and funny! When back at the camp he always made sure we had everything we needed. The food was fantastic and the shows were amazing. We went at the end of January so it got cold at night, but otherwise we all had a great time!
This was an excellent experience wherein we got to see the true older customs of the Emiratis. The authentic food and dancing and other activities at the camp were very intriguing.
Even the trip out to the camp across the desert in an open-air vehicle was exciting though mildly uncomfortable due to blowing sand. Our excellent guide showed us how to cover up using the head scarves, and that was a great help. The falcon training and flights provided an unusual side show.
I have to commend our driver/guide for his paying special attention to my wife who required extra help to get in and out of the high jeep. That, added to his overall expertise and interesting anecdotes and obvious love for his job, made for a very pleasant experience.
Really interesting and enjoyable tour. Food was good met some interesting people. Tip for other travellers, take something warm to wear, we were freezing! May have just been unlucky for the time of year January when the company phoned to confirm pick up time they did I advise us to bring something warm, but long trousers and a hoodie would have been better than a cardi !
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,
Merci à toute l'équipe
Great tour. Although we only saw one gazelle in the reserve, the overall experience was wonderful. The guide was great, the food very interesting and delicious and the dancing very different and entertaining. A great experience!
