We love helicopter rides and each time we head overseas, we will always try to find an opportunity to take a helicopter ride. We feel that a heli ride gives us a different perspective of the city, and it offers us a unique view of it. It can be quite amazing to see the city from a few thousand feet up in the air and soar among the birds. Not to mention, we love flying and this was just another excuse for us to board a helicopter!
Before we even touched down in Dubai, we already did some research on heli rides. We saw that helidubai had good reviews, and proceeded to book a tour with them. Their rides ranged from a 12-minute ride that covers the important attractions in Dubai up to a whopping 40-minute ride that is as comprehensive as it can be. We chose the 17-minute ride that covers just that much more than the 12-minute ride.

When in Dubai, one of the key things tourists look forward to is to see the desert. Funnily enough, it can be quite difficult to see nothing but sand when in Dubai. This is of course due to the incredible speed at which the city grew, and visitors will more likely see a metropolitan city when he touches down in Dubai.
Nowadays, there are dedicated tours available to bring tourists to the desert, and it includes various activities to entertain them. For us, this was definitely on our bucket list, and we did quite some research beforehand to select a good tour operator. We found Platinum Heritage and saw that it received lots of good reviews. The fact that many Hollywood celebrities also used the tour operator impressed us, since this surely spoke of its quality.
