Choose from a Variety of Tours in Dubai Including Day Tours
As one the most popular tourist destinations in the world, there is so much to see and do in this magnificent city. That said, there is a vast array of tours in Dubai to choose from. Here is our suggestion for the Dubai tours, including a number of day tours that will give you the true flavor of this desert haven:
Desert Safari – One of the most popular day tours available is the desert safari. Experience the thrill of dune bashing in a 4×4 with professional drivers. Sliding down the dunes sideways, bouncing over them, the experience is more exhilarating than any Disney ride. Or try your hand at sand skiing. Yes, you don‚Äôt need snow to ski, sand works well too, and there is plenty of it in the outskirts of Dubai.
For those looking for a more personal experience, camel trekking allows you to take in the deep richness of the desert flora. From the colorful vegetation to the unusual insects and animals, the desert is full of life. After a fun-filled day in this sandy playground, enjoy an Arabian feast of barbeque and drinks to an evening of belly dancing and henna painting.
Deep-Sea Fishing – Another popular day tour is from a chartered yacht in the Arabian Gulf. Enjoy a 3-hour deep-sea fishing tour off the coast of Dubai where the Hammour, Barracuda, and Kingfish are abundant. Departing from the Dubai Marina, these blue water adventures are captained by certified crews with years of experience sailing the Arabian Gulf.
Bus Tour – The famous London-style, open-top, double decker bus is also an interesting way to see the city sights. This Dubai tour takes you to all of city‚Äôs major landmarks with an informative commentary that explains the Emirati history and its cultural. The tour also provides free admission to the Dubai Museum and Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum‚Äôs House, ruler of Dubai from 1912 – 1958.
Dubai Creek and Dhow Dinner Cruise – Enjoy a fine evening aboard a Dhow (local sailing ship) for a romantic dinner cruise. Delight in the delicious fare of local cuisine and entertainment such as traditional belly dancing while you take in the brilliant array of colors cast on the water as the sun sets over the creek. Day tours of the creek are also available.
Fly High Over Dubai – Looking to see Dubai from a different perspective? A Dubai tour in a helicopter or sea plane provides the unique vantage point to view the city skyline. With unobstructed views of the Palm Jumeirah Island, considered to be the 8th Wonder of the World, it offers the most fantastic photo opportunities.
For the real adventurous, the city also offers skydiving over the Palm Jumeirah Island. Experience the adrenaline rush of a tandem jump from 20,000 ft. above the earth‚Äôs surface. Solo flights are also available for the more qualified skydiver.
Hot Air Ballooning – If you‚Äôre willing to rise by 4:00 a.m. to take a drive out to the desert, you can take in the most breathtaking views from the tranquility of a hot air balloon. The orange hues off the red desert sand dunes between Dubai and Hatta near Fossil Rock are a sight to behold. It is important to note that this Dubai tour is only available in the winter months, from mid September through the end of May.
A Visit to the Wildlife Sanctuaries – Preserving the local wildlife has become a primary concern of the Emirate, so it has created a number of sanctuaries for guests to visit that maintain an eco-friendly balance of nature. Ras Al Khor, a wetland reserve, is a great place to bird watch the local fowl. Al Sammaliah Island, S√Ær Ban√Æ Y√¢s, Sea Palace, Rawdat al-Reef, Al Jarf area (Hizam Al Ghabat), Bida Khalifa and Ghantoot are some of the other protected areas worth visiting if you‚Äôre interested in the wildlife flourishing there.
