DUBAI CITY TOUR (B)
Dubai is a city that provides a new setting at every turn, offering a rich blend of the old and the new, making it, without a doubt, the leading tourist destination in the Middle East. Your route takes you to the magnificent view of Dubai Creek, passing by the heritage area of Bastakiya, with its charming wind-towered houses built by wealthy merchants. You will then visit the Dubai Museum and encounter colorful dioramas and enlightening historical exhibits. Housed in the Al Fahidi Fort, this is the oldest existing building in the city and a must-visit for a taste of old Dubai. Board an Abra, a traditional boat, to cross the creek to visit the Spice Market and the Gold Souk. Drive through Jumeirah Beach and have a photo stop with Jumeirah Mosque and Burj Al Arab in the background.
This afternoon is free to explore the city at your leisure. Or, book our optional Evening Desert Safari with BBQ dinner.
Our evening Desert Safari tour is an authentic Middle Eastern experience. Discover the ancient charm and magic of the desert. Our adventure begins as your driver takes you up and down the golden sands of Arabia before stopping on the highest dune, allowing you to enjoy the beautiful view. Here you can experience the thrill of sandboarding down the dunes. Return to your 4×4 vehicle, heading to an authentic Bedouin campsite. Take a camel ride and travel as the ancients did in the past. Return to the camp and dine on a delicious barbeque dinner as the stars come out and an enchanting belly dancer performs a fascinating routine to Arabian music. Complete the experience with your shisha pipe, available in many aromatic flavors, before heading back to your hotel.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, is a gem to discover. We wander around the city’s cultural landmarks and be mesmerized by the magnificent skyline it has worked on through the years. First, we visit the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, a palatial architectural wonder of one of the world’s largest mosques. Then we drive back towards the Persian Gulf as you admire the modern-day developments along the Abu Dhabi Corniche. Admire some of the world’s most ultra-modern, breathtaking skyscrapers and luxury hotels, such as Emirates Palace, facing the pristine beach. Visit the traditional vegetable, dates, and fish markets of Port Zayed to the northeast of the city. Due to its strategic position in the heart of the city, Port Zayed has been instrumental in bolstering Abu Dhabi’s international trade and plays a pivotal role in Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030, the government’s drive to achieve economic diversification. Our tour ends with a visit to the Heritage Village for an insight into the traditional side of Abu Dhabi. This reconstructed desert village features handicraft stalls and open workshops.
