See the highlights of Dubai and its surrounding desert on this Super Saver that combines two best-selling tours over two days! Enjoy a city sightseeing tour by air-conditioned coach, seeing top Dubai attractions like the Burj Al Arab hotel and Al Fahidi Fort. Then head into the Arabian Desert on a 4x4 safari to Experience a thrilling Falcon show between the dunes, as an expert falconer showcases the hunting skills of UAE’s national bird. Visit a camel farm, try sand boarding, and enjoy a sunset barbecue meal with live music and dancing. Each tour takes place on a separate day, and it’s your choice whether you do the Dubai City Half-Day Sightseeing Tour on Day 1 and the Dubai Desert Safari on Day 2, or vice versa.
Dubai City Half-Day Sightseeing Tour (Afternoon on Day 1 or Day 2 -- your choice):Start your afternoon with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel, and then sit back and relax on a sightseeing tour around town by air-conditioned minivan. First stop is the striking sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel, located off the sands of Jumeirah Beach on its own artificial island. Although it doesn’t formally have the accolade, the hotel is consistently referred to as the world’s only 7-star hotel with incredible facilities inside its 1,053-foot-high (321-meter) building.After a photo stop outside the hotel, continue along the shoreline to Jumeirah, one of Dubai’s chicest neighborhoods, and then head to the Al Bastakiya district near Dubai Creek. See Al Fahidi Fort (Dubai’s oldest building) and cross Dubai Creek to reach Deira – a fascinating multicultural neighborhood with numerous souks (markets). Soak up the colors and perfumes of the spice souk on a stroll with your guide and then spend time at leisure browsing the legendary Deira Gold Souk before returning to your hotel.4x4 Dubai Desert Safari(Afternoon on Day 1 or Day 2 -- your choice):In the afternoon, leave your central Dubai hotel and head to the heart of the Arabian Desert by luxury 4x4 jeep. Experience a thrilling Falcon show between the dunes as anexpert falconer swings the lure to showcase the hunting skills of UAE’s national bird. Learn more about these magnificent birds of prey. On the way, stop at a local camel farm to see camels of all different shapes and sizes, roaming around their natural habitat. Learn all about these amazing creatures and enjoy a short camel ride around the farm if you wish.Next, try your hand at sandboarding – the desert’s answer to snowboarding that swaps snow-clad mountains for sweeping sand dunes. Your guide will give a comprehensive safety briefing and help you strap on your board before racing you and your fellow travelers down the dunes.Relax on the short journey to a desert campsite for your sunset dinner. While feasting on your barbeque meal, enjoy the camp entertainment: get a henna tattoo on your hands or feet, or sit back and watch a traditional Egyptian folk dance known as El Tanoura, which is performed by spinning men in long, twirling skirts. Before returning to Dubai, smoke a shisha (an Arabic water pipe), if you wish, while enjoying a live belly dance performance around the campfire.Please note: During the month of Ramadan (May 27, 2017 to June 25, 2017) this activity will not include Entertainment and alcohol will not be available.
