What You Can Expect

Dubai Combo: Helicopter Flight and Desert Camp Experience by 4x4

See the iconic sights of Dubai from the air before heading out to the desert!

Travel independently to the Atlantis, The Palm hotel, located on The Palm archipelago at Jumeirah. Check in for your shared, 15-minute flight and settle inside your state-of-the-art helicopter — either next to the pilot or in the four seats at the back.
Then, after a safety briefing, enjoy the ascent as your helicopter hovers up into the skies above Dubai. Soar along the Jumeirah coastline past the skyscrapers of downtown Dubai and gaze down at The Palm, the artificial island that resembles the shape of a palm tree, as your pilot points out the most notable landmarks.

Swoop toward the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and absorb the aerial views of the sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab hotel, rising from an island off Jumeirah Beach.
Keep your camera poised as you fly over the Arabian Gulf toward The World — the man-made archipelago that’s made up of some 300 sandy islands shaped like a world map. Have fun identifying the different ‘countries’ below and then whirr back to The Palm to return to the heliport.
After landing, make your own way back to your Dubai hotel, from where the next part of your combo tour begins in the afternoon.
After an afternoon pickup from your central Dubai hotel, board your comfortable, air-conditioned 4x4, and cruise into the desert that surrounds the city.
Soak in the sandy landscapes and dunes as you travel, and after an exciting dune drive, arrive at a Bedouin-style camp in the heart of the desert. Leave your 4x4 and enjoy an evening of fun-filled desert activities. Climb aboard a camel for a short ride across the sands; get an intricate henna tattoo painted on your hands or feet; and if you wish, have a puff or two on an Arabic shisha water pipe.

As the sun sinks below the dunes, dig into a scrumptious barbecue dinner of dishes such as hummus, lamb chops and lentil curry. See the Itinerary for a sample menu. During your meal, enjoy the live entertainment in the shape of an exotic belly dancing show.
Lastly, ride back to Dubai by 4x4 and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.

The best tour combo ever if you go to Dubai! The views are beyond words and the desert safari was so much fun! The only little thing you have to be aware of is that the hotel pickup service is only offered for the safari, not the helicopter tour so please plan ahead accordingly.
100 recommended!

The Helicopter flight was excellent 5 star! Very organized and safe and plenty long enough to see Dubai and the incredible offshore construction. The Desert Camp Experience feedback is mixed. We picked up other people so ended up in the car for about 2 1/2 hours when the dunes were only about 40 minutes from the hotel drive back was nearly as long. The dune bashing was fun and much more aggressive than I expected I suspect that was our driver by watching other that seemed more tamed this was a good thing for us. The dinner was just okay and very tourist focus. Several people selling trinkets and upgrades, I don't care for that. The belly dancer and fire dancer were good. 5 Star without the dinner experience.

The helicopter ride itself was fantastic!
Great views of the city and man-made islands. Great guide comments. Safe, good flight.
Great people at helicopter prep.
Only dings were...
Hazy day, poor visibility. Clearly beyond the tour provider's control!
Poor pre-ride service.
Was informed I'd be picked up at my hotel and brought to Atlantis.
Was told at last minute, No, I'd have to make my own way to Atlantis.
Communication prior to pick-up for ride was scant, at best
