This desert trip is a must-do tour for anyone visiting Dubai. As hot as Dubai is in July and concerned as we were about going into the desert we were pleasantly surprised how comfortable we were. Picked up at 4.15pm from downtown Dubai and didn't return until about 11pm it was as enjoyable as it was educational, in a relaxed and fun way, thanks in no small part to the quality of our guide.

Driving through the desert in an open-top Land Rover is the best way to see the landscape, fauna and wildlife, and more comfortable than being in an air conditioned car.

The falcon show, camel ride, traditional meal and entertainment were all fantastic.

Picked up from hotel at the agreed time then off into the desert. Swapped to the vintage land rover then more travelling over the dunes - fantastic. Dressed in my head dress I felt like one of the locals. Camel ride, falconry display and finished with a typical Bedouin feast. Absolutely brilliant. As I wear contact lenses I should have wore sun glasses whilst in the land rover !

We wanted something authentic to the region rather than the tourist gimmicks of belly dancing and dune buggies and this was it. Very educational and a heap of fun. Our guide Riaz was hilarious and very knowledgeable. Also great knowing that a portion of our fee goes towards the ongoing conservation efforts.

We had a guide "AAMIR" with Platinum Heritage who did such a good job doing a pre-tour explanation and commentary to ensure we understand what to expect during the tour.

This tour was so fun and educational! I enjoyed seeing the desert in the vintage vehicles and all of the activities were interesting and organized nicety. I have some knee issues so the relaxed pace of this tour was great for me and all were very accommodating in getting me more comfortable seating, etc. Our guide, Miryam, was wonderful - so helpful and so cheerful. I plan to return to the UAE with students and this is the desert tour that I will want them to experience!

This is a much more sophisticated and safer tour instead of climbing the dunes in those 4x4 modern vehicles. The guide speaks perfect portuguese and was very nice. Unique experience.

Wonderful experience! Fahad was an excellent guide and extremely knowledgeable. Falcon show was good and the desert sunset is something not to be missed. Dinner was excellent, with plenty of food. Shisa, henna tattoo and camel ride were all excellent as well. Definitely would recommend this tour!

One of the best tour guides we have ever enjoyed. Ericson is very special and hardworking. Awesome experience from hotel pickup to the end of the tour. Nice commentary enroute. Loved the falconry presentation, camel ride, vintage Land Rover, conservancy tour, dancing, dining, Bedouin camp, coffee,. Can't find the superlative to explain our satisfaction. Well done!!!
