Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Dubai

You will be met at the airport for your private transfer to your chosen Dubai hotel.

The rest of the day is yours to start exploring the city or just to relax by the swimming pool or at one of Dubai’s pristine beaches. If you are in Downtown Dubai, make sure to catch a performance of the Dubai Fountain in the Burj Khalifa Lake, every half hour in the evenings.

Day 2 - City Sights

Today you may choose to explore some of the famous landmarks and sites at your own pace. You could visit Dubai Creek, go shopping in the huge Dubai Mall, or travel on the monorail all the way to Atlantis on The Palm Jumeriah.

If you would like to ascend the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, we recommend pre-booking a ticket, as they typically sell out in advance. The view from the observation deck is sublime, across the city, desert and Persian Gulf.

Day 3 - Desert Safari

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and more free time in Dubai this morning, before heading out on a desert safari, mid afternoon.

You will travel by 4×4 to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve for a thrilling driving experience over the undulating dunes, before watching the changing colours of the desert through sunset.

A delicious BBQ buffet dinner in an authentic Bedouin camp is included, accompanied by a cultural performance. Plus there’s a chance to ride a camel or get a traditional henna tattoo.

Day 4 - Farewell from Dubai

Shop for your last minute souvenirs before your transfer back to Dubai International Airport for your flight home or onwards to your next holiday destination.

If you would like to extend your time in the UAE, just speak to your Travel Consultant, or browse our longer Dubai holidays which can also be incorporated into a multi centre itinerary.
