What to Expect
On this full-day combination tour you’ll be picked up in the morning between 09:00 and 09:30 for a unique half-day tour of Dubai. Explore its old neighborhoods as well as some of the more traditional bazaars and souks.

Start out with magnificent views of Dubai Creek, passing through the Bastakiya heritage area. See the charming wind-tower houses built by the wealthy merchants of old Dubai. Continue to Al Fahidi Fort, the city’s oldest building and now home to the Dubai Museum. See some of the city’s archives and exhibits that chronicle the development of the city.

Next, board a traditional wooden abra, or water taxi and cross Dubai Creek to the Spice Market and Gold Souk. Soak up the scent of exotic spices and see some of the best jewelry in town.

Watch a private fashion show at Treasure House, with free time afterward to examine the leather goods and exclusive jewelry. Continue to the Women’s Museum to learn about the role of women in the UAE, past and present.

Re-board the vehicle for the drive to Jumeirah Mosque for a photo opportunity outside one of Dubai’s most important landmarks. End with a drive past the ultra-luxury and ultra-contemporary Burj Al Arab to compare and contrast old and new, traditional and modern Dubai. You will be dropped off at your hotel around 14:00.

You’ll be picked up again with the 4WD vehicle between 15:00 and 15:30 to experience the magic and mystery of the Arabian desert on a scenic safari. This is a unique opportunity to see the towering sand dunes of the desert as you go on a roller coaster ride in your all-terrain vehicle.

Stop at the highest dune to watch a desert sunset before continuing on the drive to a Bedouin campsite in the heart of the desert. At the camp, henna paintings, local costumes and soft drinks, water, tea and coffee are all available for your enjoyment.

Climb on the back of a camel and experience a ride on one of the ships of the desert. Later, huff on a hubbly bubbly (shisha pipe), available in different flavors to suit your taste.

Adding to the atmosphere of the evening, an enchanting belly dancer will perform an impressive dance to the rhythms of Arabic music. To top it all off, you’ll enjoy a delicious barbecue buffet dinner under the starry night sky.

You’ll be dropped off at your hotel at around 21:00.
