Dubai Super Saver: City Sightseeing Tour and Desert Safari

Explore the souks on a city sightseeing tour of Dubai

Dubai City Sightseeing Tour 

(Afternoon on Day 1 or 2 — your choice):

Begin your 4.5-hour Dubai city tour with an afternoon pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Relax and enjoy the views from your air-conditioned minivan as you set out on your sightseeing.

Admire the glittering Burj Al-Arab hotel rising from a man-made islet off Jumeirah Beach and hear how this iconic, sail-shaped hotel stands an incredible 1,053-foot-high (321-meter) high and offers the ultimate in luxury accommodation.

Snap photos of the hotel and drive along the waterfront into Jumeirah, Dubai’s most desirable residential neighborhood. Continue to the traditional Al Bastakiya quarter and view the wind-tunnel houses and 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort — the city’s oldest building. 

Cross Dubai Creek to the bustling area of Deira and visit the colorful Spice Souk, where the stalls sell aromatic herbs, foods and spices. Stroll the alleyways with your guide and afterward, dive into the nearby Gold Souk. Enjoy free time to browse the sparkling gold and silver stores before your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.

4x4 Dubai Desert Safari 
(Afternoon and Evening on Day 1 or 2 — your choice):

Leave your central Dubai hotel in the afternoon by comfortable 4x4 and relax as you cruise into the surrounding desert. 
On route, visit a camel farm. View these hardy herbivores in their natural environment, and learn why they make perfect desert transport. Then, if you wish, take a short camel ride around the enclosures.

Continue to an area of high dunes and try some sandboarding — the hottest of desert sports. Get instructions from your guide, grab a provided sandboard, and feel your adrenaline race as you slide down the dunes and race your fellow travelers on the sandy slopes.

With your sandboarding over, drive to a desert campsite for dinner. Sit down to a scrumptious barbecue meal as the sun sets and afterward, enjoy the traditional Emirati activities on offer. 

Watch a swirling tanoura folk dance and choose to get a henna tattoo and smoke a shisha (Arabian water pipe). Lastly, sit around the campfire and watch a colorful belly dancing show before your drive back to your Dubai hotel.

The combo tour has a good cost-benefit and covers well the basics of the city and desert experience.

Both 1/2 day tours were fantastic and a great value! I DID have to close my eyes for most of the dune-bashing but that's me! I got through it and our drive Asif kept us safe even though I was sure we were going to roll!! The desert at night, the dancing, the tattoo, the barbeque and the gorgeous tableau on top of the dune of the three camels and driver is imprinted on my brain. Unfortunately, not very well on my camera! The tour of the city gave us a great overview we especially enjoyed the very well done Dubai museum at the fort. Dubai is an incredible international city!

Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Lots of fun bashing up and down dunes to riding a camel around for a bit. The entertainment at the end of the evening along with delicious food topped everything off for us. Would recommend it to anybody in Dubai. The sightseeing tour was very insightful and gave us a different perspective to Dubai, the tour guide was very good in his delivery of English and German.

The 4x4 was great fun driving through sand dunes till we came to our desert bbq. The food was fresh and tasted fantastic the staff were terrific. The entertainment of dancers, henna tattoos and everything was very well done. The city tour was very informative and our guide was very approachable when questions were asked. The markets were amazing so full of the sights and smells with the spices, and the gold market was unbelievable. All very highly recommended and would do the 4x4 driving again

Both pick ups were on time. The city sightseeing is good as Dubai is spread out and we wouldn't have seen everything otherwise. We asked to be dropped at the Dubai mall instead of our hotel and they obliged. The safari is also good, a great 4wd dune experience. The dinner and entertainment were excellent. A great evening out.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

What a great experience. The drivers were punctual for both trips and Oriental Tours were fantastic. The City Tour was an excellent way to start our holiday because we got to see around the place first up. Very informative presenter on the bus and the attractions were interesting loved the boat ride across Dubai Creek. The Desert Safari was our favourite adventure throughout the whole holiday. We had a sensational time dune bashing, camel riding and a lovely dinner. Our driver was a great guy who made our day even better thank you Razzaq. I highly recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you Viator and thanks again Oriental Tours.
