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. 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.

We loved the city tour and desert safari. The safari was particularly popular with our kids who had a fantastic time dune bashing, camel riding and sand boarding. The meal was very nice at the desert camp and we enjoyed the dancing too. There is a photographer on the safari taking photos as you go. Make sure you purchase the USB it will be delivered to your hotel the next morning because it is inexpensive and you get heaps of stunning photos.

Enjoyed both tours and they are definitely great value for money. We have a 5 and 11 year old and were a bit apprehensive about the dune bashing experience. Ironically, the two of them had the most fun out of all of us and they thought it was one of their most enjoyable experiences. This was very surprising as they normally are not big fans of big thrills or theme park rides. However, we understood from the driver that not all kids have this much fun. The Desert camp was also quite good. The camp is only for the local tour operator's cars so there was plenty of space to move around and also no issues with queues for sand boarding and camel riding. The evening buffet was also of good quality and again plenty to go round. All food, soft drinks, henna painting, sand boarding and camel riding are inclusive but you have to pay for alcoholic drinks. Tour photographs and video were available for only 100 AED which again is good value when compared to places like Ski Dubai where a single photo is 125 AED. Have not been on more expensive tours so cannot compare but overall we were pleased and thought the tour was great value for money by Dubai's standards.

The city tour includes pick and drop from the hotel. We were taken to a meeting point and then transferred on to a coach with a tour guide. The coach goes through Jumeirah and the older parts of the city. Stops include Jumeirah Mosque and Dubai Museum. The tour includes an abra crossing across the creek and then a walking tour through the souks. We were looking for a quick tour of the city so this was perfect for us. However, if you are after an extensive city tour then you may need to look for alternatives.
