This tour was definitely the highlight of our Dubai trip. From Pickup at our hotel to drop off the tour guides were friendly and attentive. The open Land Rover desert drive was amazing, although we encountered a flat tire, a replacement vehicle was quickly brought to us so we could continue our tour. The henna artist was very good, the falcon show was amazing, the camel rides were a fun touch. The food was great and traditional dances were quite interesting to watch. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in desert life.

Our trip into the Desert was absolutely amazing. We even got to see camel races as we drove east on Route 66. The wildlife got closer and closer and Felix did a fantastic job of keeping us informed while looking after us. The camel ride, the Henna, the falcon display and the dinner, and entertainment were awe inspiring. An excellent experience to be remembered.

We had just come off a two week cruise from Singapore to Dubai. This was -without question- the highlight of the trip.

Joel was an incredible guide. He was friendly and knowledgeable, providing great information about Dubai and the UAE from pickup to drop off.

The tour itself was amazing. We rode in “Martin”, a vintage open top Land Rover. There were plenty of photo opportunities, including wild birds, antelopes, stunning vistas, a falconry display, and live entertainment at a Bedouin camp. On top of all that was the most delicious dinner followed by some stargazing in the desert.

This is an experience not to be missed.

This evening tour and company is perfection! We were met my our driver and guide promptly at our hotel. They call or email you during the morning/afternoon with exact pick up time. Note this will happen sometime between 2:30-3:30. Then after picking up other passengers you make your way to the desert! I forget if the ride was a hour or hour and a half but it goes fast has he points out points of interest, answers questions, and a stop at a camel race track. The car is a very clean and comfortable suv from platinum heritage. As soon as you arrive to the desert site you are greeted with a complimentary souvenir bag with water canister and they wrap your head in traditional scarf. Then youre on your way in their vintage Land Rover- coolest part! actually like the pictures. On the drive the point out animals and scenery and a couple of stops to see the sunset, and falcon show. Then to the dinner spot- the atmosphere of the camp was gorgeous ! and the food - so much! and so good!!! They definitely planned this tour perfectly and everyone from platinum heritage is sooo nice and professional and always had smiles on their faces and wanted to make sure you had this best time! Highly Recommend ! 10 stars if I could !

Thank you for Platinum Heritage!! They are the only company I could find that did not do dune bashing (youtube it to see what that is). I was with a tour group that booked the dune bashing desert safari but I have motion sickness and vertigo so I knew I was not going to participate but I did not want to miss out on the desert. This tour was amazing. Our tour guide (Eli) I hope that is the correct name was patient and and accommodating. It was only 4 people total in our group so it was nice and intimate. The classic range rover jeeps were nice, we got to take lots of pictures, had a falcon show, live traditional emirate dance and the camp was nice (we had great food, hookah, henna, coffee making). I am so glad I ended up going with Platinum Heritage!! It was an amazing tour!

I was a bit worried that this might be a little too touristy-hokey, but it was absolutely the most interesting tour I've ever taken! Ben (you must ask for this guide!) picked us up at our hotel on time, and then gathered 4 more passengers at their hotels along the way. Then we made our way to the desert, with Ben entertaining us all the way. We arrived at the preserve, laughed as we received our headdresses, and then hopped in our cool 50's era Land Rover. The scenery was stunning as the sun set, and we were able to see oryx and gazelle throughout our drive. We waved to a drone overhead as we made our way to the falconry demonstration. After receiving a cool drink of fruit juice, we found our cushions and thoroughly enjoyed the swift flights of the falcon, and the information provided about the history of falconry in the U.A.E.

Then, you return to the Land Rovers and proceed on to the encampment, which is just gorgeous...tents and carpets and cushions, hookahs, henna and drumming and gun dancing ~ all fabulous. An authentic Bedoin meal is provided, including salads and hummus, stew, soup, breads and smoked and cooked meats. Camels are there for those wishing to take a short camel ride. Beautiful! Perfect evening, and I highly suggest that you buy the USB stick with a video taken of YOUR Land Rover by the drones...it's an awesome video that you will enjoy watching and sharing with friends when you are back home again. Platinum Heritage Tours will be highly recommended by me!

WOW I have done many Viator tours , cruise tours etc etc and I must say this is one of the very best tours we have ever done. From pick up to drop of our chaperone for the day was Sergio, he was just great. The ride to desert took about 45 mins - 1hour in a really comfortable 4WD. The Vintage Land Rovers were great as we travelled through the desert stopping to look at various animals. The whole afternoon/night was just exceptional and well worth every cent . Food as just amazing and everyone at the camp happy friendly , it all made for a fantastic night.,,, Thankyou for helping make our stay in Dubai so memorable, I am now in love with Dubai it really is a wonderful place.

This was a fun trip enhanced by very friendly staff. A special shout out to Amjad our driver guide who was engaging and entertaining. Dropped a star only because of previous personal experiences of the desert, falconry and Jeep safari. Otherwise 5 star all the way and well organized. Small group eco-conscious tour with great food and good traditional entertainment
