Fantastic Desert Experience!
Our guide Anzor picked us up right on time at the hotel and told us about the desert with the eye and passion of a true conservationist. We stopped to see the camel racing place and saw interesting animals in the desert. We loved jumping out of the Land Rover to really feel the desert and the heat! Breakfast at the Al Maha Resort was top notch and the staff so warm and welcoming. So nice to get out of the city and learn about the area surrounding Dubai. Highly recommend and bravo to Anzor!
Luxurious Way To See The Desert
We booked with Platinum Heritage for the reviews and exclusive private tour of the desert and breakfast in a breath taking hotel. It really is a lovely relaxing way to see the desert. A drive to the desert with the opportunity to put on traditional head scarf, photo opportunity and then your off to spot wildlife! Throughout the vast desert, keep your eyes peeled for different animals. Plenty of Onyx which are beautiful to see in the wild. We loved that we got to stop off throughout the tour to walk through the dunes and feel the sand between our toes. The breakfast is the hotel was lovely, fresh and good choice of foods to eat. You don’t feel rushed at all and enjoy the surroundings. Special shout out to Saeed who was our tour guide for the day. You taught us so much about the UAE, the desert, the wildlife and traditions. We especially loved all the facts about Camel Racing! Highly recommend to anyone!
