After morning pickup from your Dubai hotel, take a panoramic drive around the city’s must-sees by air-conditioned vehicle. Hear about Dubai’s history and architecture from your guide, and keep your camera ready for the many photo ops.
See Dubai Creek, the waterway that winds through the city’s oldest districts, and view Dubai Museum, housed in the 18th-century Al Fahidi fort. Continue to Jumeirah Beach for photos of the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab, and then drive onto the palm-shaped Palm Jumeirah for a photo stop outside the Atlantis The Palm.
Finish with a look at the Mall of the Emirates and the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower. Snap photos outside this soaring building before your tour ends with a lunchtime hotel drop-off.
Enjoy free time to relax and have lunch (own expense) before a mid-afternoon hotel pickup takes you deep into the desert surrounding Dubai. Head off road for a 4x4 dune bash, and continue through the sands to a Bedouin-style desert camp.
Get an optional henna tattoo, and as the sun sets, savor a barbecue buffet dinner of char-grilled meats, salads, desserts, sodas and other beverages. Finish by watching a live belly dancing show before your return to Dubai and a hotel drop-off.
