What to Expect
Depart your central Dubai hotel by climate-controlled coach and set off to discover the city's highlights as your guide sheds light on their history. First, see the wind towers of the old Al Bastakiya (Al Fahidi) quarter, learning how they were built by Persian merchants in the late 1800s. Then, explore the city’s wider history at Dubai Museum before crossing Dubai Creek by abra boat to visit Deira’s Gold and Spice souks. Next, enjoy a panoramic drive around new Dubai, seeing the Atlantis, Burj Khalifa, Marina, and other futuristic landmarks. After a hotel drop-off and time for lunch (at own expense), leave your hotel by 4x4 to head into the desert. Ride across the dunes and visit a Bedouin-inspired camp for activities including camel riding, sand boarding, and belly dance and tanoura (whirling dervish) shows. Lastly, savor a BBQ-buffet dinner under the stars before ending your day with a hotel drop-off.
