What You Can Expect

Dubai Super Saver: City Sightseeing Tour and Desert Safari

Explore the souks on a city sightseeing tour of Dubai

Dubai City Half-Day Sightseeing Tour
(Afternoon on Day 1 or Day 2 -- your choice):

Start your afternoon with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel, and then sit back and relax on a sightseeing tour around town by air-conditioned minivan.

First stop is the striking sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel, located off the sands of Jumeirah Beach on its own artificial island. Although it doesn’t formally have the accolade, the hotel is consistently referred to as the world’s only 7-star hotel with incredible facilities inside its 1,053-foot-high (321-meter) building.

After a photo stop outside the hotel, continue along the shoreline to Jumeirah, one of Dubai’s chicest neighborhoods, and then head to the Al Bastakiya district near Dubai Creek. See Al Fahidi Fort (Dubai’s oldest building) and cross Dubai Creek to reach Deira – a fascinating multicultural neighborhood with numerous souks (markets). Soak up the colors and perfumes of the spice souk on a stroll with your guide and then spend time at leisure browsing the legendary Deira Gold Souk before returning to your hotel.

4x4 Dubai Desert Safari
(Afternoon on Day 1 or Day 2 -- your choice):
In the afternoon, leave your central Dubai hotel and head to the heart of the Arabian Desert by luxury 4x4 jeep. On the way, stop at a local camel farm to see camels of all different shapes and sizes, roaming around their natural habitat. Learn all about these amazing creatures and enjoy a short camel ride around the farm if you wish.

Next, try your hand at sandboarding – the desert’s answer to snowboarding that swaps snow-clad mountains for sweeping sand dunes. Your guide will give a comprehensive safety briefing and help you strap on your board before racing you and your fellow travelers down the dunes.

Relax on the short journey to a desert campsite for your sunset dinner. While feasting on your barbeque meal, enjoy the camp entertainment: get a henna tattoo on your hands or feet, or sit back and watch a traditional Egyptian folk dance known as El Tanoura, which is performed by spinning men in long, twirling skirts. Before returning to Dubai, smoke a shisha (an Arabic water pipe), if you wish, while enjoying a live belly dance performance around the campfire.

Please note: During the month of Ramadan (June 18 to July 16, 2015), this activity will not include belly dancing or Tonoura dancing, and alcohol will not be served at the camp.

We can highly recommend both tours. The tour guide for the City Sightseeing was excellent and very friendly. We enjoyed the souks the most and also the boat trip. The Desert Safari was very exciting. The meal was excellent.

Definitely cheaper to get the two for one deal. I met people who did these tours separately and they paid double the price. City tour was great, tour guide was very knowledgeable and we had plenty of time everywhere.

The Desert tour was fantastic. You get 45 minutes of driving over the dunes in a 4wd which is a lot of fun. The sand boarding, camel riding and falconry was rushed, but you definitely got to have a go at everything. The alcoholic drinks at the dinner are very well priced and soft drinks are free. Had a great time.
