We had an amazing experience. The tour itself was so personable, and we ourselves had decided to stay at another tour longer that day and I had reached out last min and asked if we could change our pickup location. Which they did. They picked us up at the new arrival spot on time and drove us to the desert. From the time of pick up to the end of the tour everything was so personable. We learned so much about falconry and truly had a magical day. Thank you guys for an amazing time.

Amin was our falconer. He was professional and very hospitable. He was punctual and knew a lot about the birds. We had a wonderful experience and my two kids (6 and 2) loved interacting with the birds. We also had a lot of opportunities to click pictures.

We loved every minute of this experience. Sarab and Amin were our guys in the field, they were so wonderful, they made you comfortable right away and were so much fun. Your adventure begins with delicious Arabic coffee and dates, it was then time for the adventure to begin. Our raptor repertoire included; a Gyr Falcon (Wathba), Barn Owl (Shonu), Dessert Eagle Owl (Sheldon), Harris Hawk, (Salli) and a Greater Spotted Eagle (Khaima). Special thanks to Shara for assistance in putting this together, always great at responding to emails and getting information to me. If you're thinking about this tour I would say do it, you will be glad you did! The photos are amazing, thanks Sarab for some great pics and footage, I've looked at them everyday since the tour. I would also suggest breakfast at Al Maha Resort, it's only minutes away and was very good.

This trip was truly amazing. Our family was picked up from our hotel for the private afternoon falcon safari. Our guide Sarab was the most friendly, knowledgable, pleasant and helpful person. You could see he has a very close bond with the birds, who were treated very carefully and utmost respectfully. Upon arrival in the desert we were welcomed by his nice colleague with coffee and dates and we felt very comfortable. Also our toddler was welcome and integrated so that he also could be close to the birds, crawl in the desert sand and look at the show. The desert conservation reserve is absolutely beautiful and the sunset while we watched Oryx in the sand was stunning. Also booking and communication with Royal Shaheen was great. Thank you, Shara, for the quick and comprehensive communication. We can fully recommend this trip.

This is a fantastic experience for any traveller visiting Dubai, and as a longtime resident I especially appreciated findiing such a fresh and unique activity. We were picked up from our accommodation by Sarab at 06:00 and reached the Reservation in time for sunrise -- a truly majestic view, with sights of oryx and gazelles visible on the horizon. Sarab was immensely personable, very knowledgeable about falconry and the local wildlife. On arrival, we were treated to traditional Arabic coffee served with dates, before Sarab and his colleague Mohammad began the show -- including a falcon, a Harris Hawk, a barn owl, an eagle owl, and a Greater spotted eagle. We then learned how to call and fly them ourselves. This was marvellous and we both quickly felt comfortable with the birds. Plus, Sarab very kindly acted as our personal photographer, snapping large numbers of photos and videos for each of us to capture the best light and the best moments. This was a truly fantastic experience for my partner and I, who had the trip entirely to ourselves! I would 100% recommend this to anyone wanting a slightly different experience in Dubai.
