Choose the order you wish to take your three tours in advance: either over two or three consecutive days, or on any non-consecutive days that suit you.
Half-Day Dubai City Tour:
After morning Dubai hotel pickup, set off by air-conditioned vehicle on a panoramic city tour. Drive by world-famous buildings including the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab, and see other sights such as the Palm Jumeirah, Atlantis The Palm, Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa — the world’s tallest building.
Along the way, visit Dubai Museum, housed in the 18th-century Al Fahidi fort. Head inside and view the historical artifacts and displays, tracing the city’s history from its roots as a fishing port right up to the present day. Your tour ends in the late morning with a hotel drop-off.
Desert Safari with BBQ Dinner:
After afternoon pickup from your Dubai hotel, head into the desert around the city. Go off-road for a 4x4 dune bash and then drive on to a Bedouin-style desert camp.
Here, enjoy a range of desert activities, including a camel ride, sand boarding, henna tattoo, and the opportunity to try a shisha (Arabic water pipe).
Then, feast on a sunset barbecue dinner, including vegetarian options and unlimited sodas, water and tea and coffee, watching a colorful belly dancing and whirling ‘tanoura’ show as you eat. Later, finish with a hotel drop-off back in Dubai.
Dhow Dinner Cruise:
Start with evening hotel pickup in Dubai, and travel to the waterfront at Dubai Creek.
Board a beautifully lit dhow, sip a welcome drink, and admire views of the illuminated high-rises and monuments as you sail along Dubai Creek. Capture photos from the open-air deck, and savor a delicious international buffet dinner of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes with water, tea and coffee.
After about three hours, finish with a hotel drop-off.
