I cannot recommend this tour highly enough, if you have any interest in horse racing or the background behind it, then you will not be disappointed. You start your day with breakfast at the Meydan Hotel. We were told to arrive at 07.30am, but to be honest my husband and I were the last to arrive at 07.25 as the... More

We were principally there to watch the racing but the food in the restaurant was first class with house drinks included in the package. There were entertainments for my two grandchildren with magicians, face painting (I think) etc. and live music between races. The staff are very attentive without being obtrusive. A great night though there is no betting .

Very nice race course. Difficult to believe its creation in desert. Very well maintained. If you see photos, you will not believe that it is in middle of desert.

Opening day was quite a treat,but why do the horses have to break on the other side of a hill? I had a good seat in the Clubhouse & the refreshments were superb.

There are other attractions at Meydan besides the racing - cinema, aerial climbing, golf etc - but horse racing is the lead thing, of course. Check the website for race days. It's surprisingly inexpensive and the location is great with good views back across to the city. The hotel also has some decent dining options.

We visited Meydan on a Thurs evening and had a great night. It was busy but not overcrowded and had a good atmosphere. You are given a race card when you arrive for free as you can't bet with money but can win if your horse comes in. We found the card confusing to fill in and missed the first... More

As keen UK racegoers took advantage of the first meeting of the new season to go to Meydan. Welcoming track with free entry for the public area - not many women there though..... No betting at all which reduces the amount of commentary and the excitement. Interesting experience though and glad we went. Very hot.

This was a great choice for an evening's entertainment. You need to take a taxi there,,,but that's the end of your cost. There's no entry charge unless into the enclosure. You have free entry to the main stand where you can see everything and get close to the parade ring also. No bookmakers or tote but you get a free... More
