What to expect

During your trip to Dubai, take advantage of the opportunity to combine a Dubai city tour with a day trip to Abu Dhabi, the Emirates's majestic capital and an action-packed desert safari.

Day one:

Your four-hour Dubai city tour takes you to the most prominent places in Dubai, showing you both sides of the city: the historical and the modern. Visit Dubai Museum located inside the 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort to get an idea of what Dubai was like before the discovery of oil transformed it into the power city that it is today. You'll take a drive along the Dubai Creek, which is filled with historical remnants.

Admire the Arabic architecture with a visit to Jumeirah Mosque, the city's only mosque open to non-Muslims, then it's on to discover the modern side. See Hotel Burj Al Arab, designed in the shape of a sail; the Palm Islands, the world's largest artificial islands; Hotel Atlantis the Palm, the crowning glory of palm Jumeirah; Jumeirah Beach and Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building. The tour also includes a drive along the Shiekh Zayed Road so that you can take a look at the skyscrapers and magnificent buildings on both sides of the road.

Day two:

Your Abu Dhabi city tour from Dubai will take you to all of the Emirates capital's must-see sights, landmarks and attractions. Along the way, your local expert tour guide will provide you with all the fascinating background information.

You will be picked up from your hotel in Dubai and driven to Abu Dhabi where you will see many sights including:

  • Sheikh Zayed Mosque, also known as Grand Mosque
  • Abu Dhabi Corniche
  • Emirates Palace
  • Abu Dhabi Culture and Heritage Centre
  • Abu Dhabi Museum
  • Marina Mall where you can indulge in luxurious, retail therapy
  • Yas Island and the one-of-a-kind theme park, the Ferrari World

Day three:

Your desert safari lets you experience Dubai as it was before it became the modern metropolis it is today. During the tour, you will:

  • Spend a few hours in a bedouin style tent, right in the middle of the desert
  • Journey in a 4x4 to the campsite in the desert just outside of Dubai
  • Cascade (dune-bashing) on the steep sand dunes in air-conditioned 4x4 by a professional driver
