We recently had the pleasure of experiencing the Platinum Desert Safari Tour. Wow! From start to finish, my mind was blown at the efficiency of the company and the highest quality of hosting they delivered us. I could not recommend this company enough, everybody we met was so friendly and inviting, the activities were unique and the whole afternoon/evening ran like clockwork. Also, the food we ate during our tour was impeccable and authentic local/national cuisine.

Living in Dubai for almost 10 years and just now did the tour with Platinum Heritage, I’ve been missing out! The tour was perfect from the beginning till the end. Next time I have visitors, for sure I book again!
