Visitors to Dubai are dazzled by the fantastic man-made real estate projects and the upscale shopping. Yet, here too we find contradiction with modernity in the daily observance of Islam and the continuation of the Bedouin tradition and life style.

Day 1: Arrival in Dubai
Welcome to Dubai. On arrival your Airport Representative will meet you and facilitate your transfer to your hotel. Enjoy an unforgettable evening cruising along the Dubai Creek onboard a traditionally decorated Dhow. Your Dhow is a replica of the traditional ancient wooden vessels of Dubai that plied the waters of the Persian Gulf for centuries pearling and trading with neighbors. Dubai Creek, in the heart of the city, bustles day and night with working Dhows and affords an intriguingly different view of the city intertwining traditional and the modern. Experience the atmosphere of Dubai by night accompanied by Arabic music and the fabulously illuminated city skyline. Overnight at your selected hotel.
Day 2: Dubai City Tour
Breakfast at the hotel is followed by a half-day Dubai City Tour. Experience both the modern and the ancient Dubai. The tour will take you to the magnificent Burj Al Arab Hotel, Jumeirah Mosque, and continues towards the World Trade Center. Pass by the palaces belonging to the ruling family of Dubai. After a short break by the Creek, proceed to the oldest part of the city, Bastakia, where the numerous old wind-towered houses of wealthy merchants can still be seen. The wind towers or Deira Towers were designed to keep the houses cool. Close by is the fascinating Dubai Museum in the Al Fahidi Fort, which has been there for centuries defending the settlers of early days. Continue the tour through the textile market. Abras or local private water taxis will take you across the Creek to the spice and gold souks. We end the tour walking through the busy alleys of these souks. Be amazed by mystical aromas of numerous spices and the breath-taking amount of dazzling jewelry varying from traditional to the latest designs sold at amazingly affordable prices and displayed in almost 350 shops. Overnight at your selected Hotel.
Day 3: Desert Safari
After breakfast at the hotel, use free time to do as you please in Dubai. Late afternoon embark on a Desert Safari in 4 WD late model jeeps that will speed through the desert of golden sand dunes toward your desert camp. The final leg of this exciting drive takes you to the main campsite and the highlight of the trip. Here you can view a memorable, true Arabian sunset with all its glory and magic. At dusk try some Camel riding in the nearby Bedouin camp. A delicious barbecue dinner is prepared on open fires and a variety of beverages are available. The camp is richly decorated with Persian rugs and traditional accessories to create a typical Bedouin camp under the stars. Try the local Hubbly Bubbly or shisha in different flavors. The tempo of the music increases as a belly dancer starts dancing to the rhythm of the band. What better way to experience a true Arabian night than this?
Day 4: East Coast Tour with Lunch
After breakfast enjoy the variety of colors in the landscape of the Emirates in just one day! This tour takes us away from the activity and the noise of booming Dubai City. Our route takes us through lush, green agricultural areas and stops at a local market in the mountains, passing numerous wadis on our way. At Dibba we visit a typical, local fishing village. Then the coastal road along the Indian Ocean takes us through the Bidya Mosque complex, the oldest mosque in the Emirates. After lunch in a seaside restaurant there is an opportunity to snorkel, swim or just relax on the beach. Our last stop is a visit to the city of Fujairah and its old fort before we return to Dubai. Overnight at your selected hotel.
Day 5: Full Day Abu Dhabi Tour
Enjoy your breakfast and depart for a full-day tour of Abu Dhabi, which is the capital of United Arab Emirates and the residence of Federal National Council. One of the world’s largest producers of oil, Abu Dhabi has actively attempted to diversify its economy in recent years through investments in financial services and tourism. You will be mesmerized by the grandness of the new addition to Abu Dhabi’s skyline, the majestic Grand Mosque, the third largest mosque in the world. We then visit the Cultural Foundation at the heart of the city next to the famous Union Square that gathers symbolic themes inspired by customs of the country. After lunch we will visit the Abu Dhabi Corniche and the Heritage Village, specially designed by late HH Sheikh Zayed Ben Sultan al Nahyan, as a reminder of the past for the younger generation. We will drive back to Dubai for overnight.
Day 6: Al Ain Tour
After breakfast we depart for Al Ain, known as the “Garden City,” one of the oldest settlements in the region. It is a stunningly green city with an incredible number of public parks and numerous green houses. Al Ain is one of the agricultural centers of the Emirates and also a university town. It is the birthplace of the President of the U.A.E. The Jimi and Hili Oasis provides a shaded walk through the palms of the date plantation, giving each visitor a restful and pleasant experience. We will visit the Al Ain Palace Museum, the residence of the late ruler Sheik Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Interesting displays, including a collection of family portraits, offer an insight into the way the royal family lived and entertained its guests. We then stop at the camel market before returning to Dubai for overnight.
Day 7: Following breakfast at the hotel, checkout and depart for the Dubai Airport.
