Planet Tours and Safaris Dubai Reviews
Very immersive day tour in UAE Jan 28, 2016
Planet Tours and Safaris is a tour operating company located in Dubai. For the cost of $45, I was able to enjoy a very stimulating desert dune ride in a Toyota 4 X 4 followed by a relaxing dinner and hangout the camp that was available with some Middle Eastern dance festivities.
The desert dune ride is probably not for the motion sick but I really enjoyed it. I was in a tour group consisting of several other land cruisers racing along the bumpy desert. The drivers seemed to have a blast racing each other. When we arrived at camp, guests can go on camel rides and even hold several birds of prey that are used for hunting. Bird keepers will expect a small fee for pictures taken with the creatures.
The camp itself is a nice spacious one with 3 souvenir shops, a bar, and a complentary all-you-can-eat Middle Eastern buffet. The buffet had a great variety of choices in the region's common entrees. Hookah is also available. Professional Middle Eastern dancers were entertaining in the night time. For a January night in the desert. It wasn't too chilly and the groundskeepers did the best to keep the area fairly warm.
This is a high recommend for anyone who is limited on time to experience a heavy dose of the regional culture and for those who have budget limitations. I would go again once I return to Dubai.
