    Overall this trip is amazing, as it’s my first time in Dubai I really enjoyed and would love to do this again. The shows at night are amazing, the food is beautiful and really well cooked, I recommend that when you book this desert safari that you book the VIP section as it’s much more better than sitting on cushions on the floor, you get a good view for the shows the staff are always coming and checking up on you and giving you drinks(in the VIP section)you also get the food served too you rather than queuing up with lots of other people to get it. the VIP is only cheap too so your not wasting money because it makes your experience better. We did a 20minutes quad biking and I recommend that you do this time as well because you get to follow the guide all around the desert and up and down dunes and you just get a better experience than you would if you booked 10 minutes. You can do camel riding as much as you want the staff are always happy to take pictures on your phone for you, there are people walking round taking photos with cameras but you do have to purchase them at the end if you want them. The dune bashing is brilliant 🤩 you will never experience something like that again in your life. The henna lady is so kind she gave me a free little henna on my hand and it looked beautiful she said she could do a bigger one for 20 Dirham if you wanted too. A quick little reminder there are some people that walk round trying to sell you necklaces and these sand jars with your names in them, if you want one that’s entirely up to you but I paid 150 Dirhams (£32) for a silver necklace with my name written in Arabic when he gave it us back it was beautiful and I loved it, we asked the man can you swim with this necklace on can you go in the sea, or will it go a different colour he said yes you can swim with it on its perfectly fine the colour will not change but it did about 1 day after it started to go like a gold rusty colour and I couldn’t go back and return it because the drive was too long and would cost us money, I went to the safari on Thursday 5th of may and flew home on the 8th, I haven’t put the necklace near any water since I got home and the colour of it has just gotten worse so I do recommend buying one because they are gorgeous just do not wear it in the pool,sea, shower or anything to do with water.

    Great experience, a must for anyone visiting Dubai. Amazing service, was picked up from the front door of my apartment and dropped back when the fun and activities were done.
    Our driver Farooq was very friendly and made the safari so much fun, he was really into it and made us feel very welcome.
    The day went seamless everything was planned so well. Makes for great pictures and memories and Farooq is a great photographer.

    Platinum Heritage is a very professional company which offers an outstanding experience. From the pick up at the hotel to the drop off late at night, it was an amazing trip. The staff is super friendly (they have staff speaking all kinds of languages) and they are super knowledgeable regarding the culture, history, and nature of the UAE which is great.
    When you arrive in the desert you get a Ghutra on your head and you are ready to go. The ride through the desert in which you get to see animals (mainly Oryxes) from a close range is amazing. Being surrounded by sand is an experience you should not miss. Especially the vehicles that have no roof is something I highly recommend.

    During the trip there are drones in the air which take videos - great idea. At the camp you get to experience traditional food, get to watch the stars at night, and there is traditional entertainment. The only bad thing about this trip was that time was flying and you feel like it was over soon (even though you spend half a day there in total). I can highly recommend this unique experience!

    Inam was friendly, kind,respectful, knowledgeable and helpful. He looked after us very well by providing water all the time during tour, (it was 38'C), he took us for lunch to "all you can eat" restaurant, where we enjoyed the variety of food. We really enjoyed his company. If I could give him a score of 10 - I would! Well done Inam! Keep it up!

    It was a good experience to see all the different water creatures. Was disappointed that not all the animals and creatures were labelled.
