What to expect

This special combination package will give you an insight into the traditions of the desert outside of Dubai, as well as a close up look at the exciting modern architecture and historic sites of the city. You will go on a sightseeing tour of the city center, head for the desert on a 4WD Land Cruiser safari, and hit the Gulf on board an evening dhow dinner cruise.

Day one of this tour will include a memorable evening cruise along Dubai Creek on board a traditional wooden dhow. You will see the stunning illuminated skyline, offering sights of traditional and modern architecture. See water taxis, old trading dhows, luxury yachts and modern architecture, such as the National Bank of Dubai, Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Sheikh Saeed's House, and Heritage Village. Your evening will end with a blend of Arabic and International music, along with a sumptuous buffet dinner, serving a wide array of continental and oriental dishes, and an excellent selection of beverages.

Day two of this tour you will get an excellent city orientation, with a stop at Dubai Creek, before a drive through the Bastakiya, Al Fahidi Fort, Ruler’s Court, Old Mosque, Textile Street, Central Bank, Ministry of Finance, Heritage Village, and the spice and gold souks. You will proceed along Jumeirah Road, passing by the Dry Docks, Historical Union House, the beautiful Jumeirah Mosque, the Burj Al Arab - the world’s tallest 7-star hotel - and the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa.

In the afternoon, you will go on a thrilling desert drive over the golden sand dunes, deep into the heart of the desert. Arrive at a traditional Arabic desert camp and enjoy the authentic ambience of a typical Bedouin campsite, with traditional Arabian carpets, low tables and cushions for comfortable seating.

You'll be able to go on a camel ride, get a traditional henna painting, or simply enjoy the aromatic shisha pipe. Enjoy a sumptuous buffet meal with a wide variety of barbecue meats, salads, main course, and desserts. The climax of the evening is a stunning performance by an exotic belly dancer, tanoura dancer, and fire dancer, all under a star-filled sky.
