Break out of the city for a morning, afternoon, or couple of days, and experience parts of Dubai you’d rarely have the chance to otherwise. Guided tours are the best way to get to know the Emirate’s dramatic landscape, its people and its culture, as well as showing you the most breath-taking, interesting and beautiful places. Whether you opt for boat, car, foot or plane, you’re guaranteed a knowledgeable, friendly guide and an insight into Dubai.
Thanks to Dubai’s diverse landscape, there are a huge number of tours and excursions to choose from. Take to the desert in a Land Rover, and soar over silky soft sand, or head for the skies and an aerial view of Dubai’s ever-changing skyline. City tours are a brilliant way to immerse yourself into the Emirati’s way of life, as well as getting your bearings and deciding which areas you want to see more of.
Excursions to other Emirates are easy to book, can fit into one day, and mean you can see more of Arabia, and the beautiful landscape, people and culture it offers. Abu Dhabi and its capital, Al Ain, are always popular destinations, as are Sharjah and Ajman.
If you’ve only got a couple of hours to spare, it’s worth signing up for a morning, afternoon or evening tour. Explore the city, the heritage sights, the shopping malls and the souks by day, then take to the Creek by fairy-lit dhow at night, or ramp up the glamour with an evening at the races. These brief tours are short, but fit in a busy schedule and ensure you see as much of the city as you want.
Nothing can prepare you for the sights of Dubai from the air: whether you take off in a plane, a helicopter or a hot air balloon, the dramatically diverse landscape will leave you speechless. Watch as turquoise waters give way to green parks and dazzling high-rises, before slowly giving way to the relentless desert, creeping along the city’s edge. Craggy mountains, hidden oases and twisting tributaries make for memories of a lifetime.
