Luxury Desert Experience: Dinner and Emirati Activities with Vintage Land Rover Transport from Dubai

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A memorable experience. Following a prompt and efficient pick up, we were soon transferred to the site where (having been head wrapped in our scarves) we were assigned to our open-topped Land Rover. Our driver (Hassam) was not only great fun to be with, he knew his stuff! He excited us: demonstrating his speedy but safe driving skills in the sand. He was informative about the intent of the conservation area and knowledgeable of the local species (not that we saw many). The entire desert experience was fun-focused. The hospitality could not be faulted. We loved the falconry display, the hilarity of riding the 'ship of the desert', the very tasty dinner and the Arabic entertainment. It was an experience we would recommend.......and if you get Hassam as your driver you will definitely have fun.

Excellent: money well spent. As always, this is the best way to introduce a city to visitors giving options for return visits or pre-planned stop-offs.

Suzhou and Zhouzhuang Water Village Day Trip from Shanghai

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
These two charming locations are definitely worth a visit. They epitomize the lifestyle of former Chinese periods and also give an excellent contrast to the residential landscape and pace of city life in Shanghai. The only downside of the day was the expectation and constant pressure to purchase souvenirs by the employees when we were taken to locations like the Pearl Center.

A very busy, but very worthwhile, tour. It serves as an excellent introduction to Shanghai. Have your map with you and work out where you are going, and be sure to look for the contrasts and variety. If you have not been to the key points of interest on this tour, you have not seen Shanghai!

This is such an easy and informative way to see a great city. The tour covers a vast area not easily walked in the heat. The number of hop-on-hop-off stops ensures you can see a variety of interesting historic sites. Excellent value for money.

This is an excellent way to get an overview of Florence. I suggest that you start early in the morning by doing the outer route first and then link to the inner route. It is possible to walk between the two routes within the city.
