Overview
Pack in numerous activities on this full-day Dubai experience, which combines a city tour with a desert adventure. It’s an ideal itinerary for those short on time, and included transportation makes for a seamless trip. You’ll see the sights of old and new Dubai on a morning tour, then after a break, enjoy a full-blown 4x4 desert trip with dune bashing, camel riding, and a Bedouin-style BBQ buffet dinner.
Highlights
  • Experience Dubai’s highlights and a desert adventure in a single day
  • Save time by pairing a morning city tour with an afternoon desert trip
  • Tour old and new Dubai; enjoy a dune bash, camel ride, and desert camp visit
  • All transportation and a BBQ dinner included for smooth experience
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.
