Meet your driver-guide at your Dubai hotel, sink into your comfortable, climate-controlled 4x4 Land Cruiser, and set off on your tour.
On route, enjoy the onboard water and snacks, and tell your guide about any sights you want to see more of: as your tour is private, the itinerary can be tailored around you.
Make your way first to Dubai Marina, where more than 200 skyscrapers fringe a man-made waterway. Capture the skyline on camera, and hear how the area was built on empty desert during the early 2000s.
Next, continue to Palm Jumeirah island, another of Dubai’s wonders. Explore the palm-shaped island and take photos of Atlantis, The Palm, the gigantic hotel at the island’s tip.
Cruise along Jumeirah Road to see the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab, and visit the Souk Madinat Jumeirah. This upscale modern souk echoes a traditional Arabian marketplace, with palm-fringed paths and bazaar-like lanes filled with smart boutiques and galleries.
Then, drive to Dubai Mall, the world’s biggest shopping complex. Marvel at the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, that rises high above the mall, and take in the shops and waterfront along Burj Khalifa Lake.
Your tour then ends with a hotel drop-off.
