Full description
Combine a tour of Dubai’s ultra-modern city center with a visit to the desert, where you can ride a camel, sandboard dunes, and discover the old traditions of the Arabian Peninsula. The full-day tour also includes a spectacular barbecue buffet dinner at a Bedouin camp.

Start with a tour of the city’s iconic buildings and lively districts. Go to Dubai Creek, framed by the Deira Twin Towers and Dubai Creek Tower. The banks of the river are a center of commerce and offer some beautiful views of the city. You will also visit Jumeirah Mosque, situated in the picturesque beach district of Jumeirah, home to the famous Burj Al Arab hotel. See the world's tallest man-made structure at the Burj Khalifa, and continue to Deira City Centre for a shopping tour, with complimentary lunch at selected food outlets.

After lunch, leave the city for a desert safari adventure. Drive through the dunes to a typical Bedouin camp. After a welcome of Arabic coffee and dates, you can opt to ride camels, or try a spot of sandboarding in the dunes. Get an intricate henna painting on your hands, or try a sheesha pipe if you prefer to relax at the camp.

End the day with a barbecue buffet dinner in the desert, and relax under a carpet of stars.

Good fun and good value excursion

The guide for the city tour in the morning was informative and friendly even though the points of interest we visited weren't the most interesting. We never went to the souks though, which was a little disappointing. The guide for the Safari wasn't the friendliest, but his driving through the desert dunes was quite impressive. We never got the do the sandboarding, which was quite disappointing. Overall, I enjoyed the excursion!

Good tour but was a bit rushed and the food was not too great

We really enjoyed the first part of the tour and our tour guide, Ali, was brilliant! Knows Dubai and the history very very well. What we didnt like was that we were told that we will have 4 hours for shopping, which turned out to be an hour and we still had to get lunch! The desert safari was AWESOME! Our driver knew what he was doing and it was really thrilling. The activities at camp was good, not great but good and the food was not so great. Being a foreigner it would be great if somebody could tell us what everyhing was! The "for rent" activities were also very good. Overall I will recommend this tour to anybody as its real value for money!

Drop the evening bbq in the camp.

Pick ups on time, City Tour good although a little rushed. Time to shop between the two tours. Desert Safari brilliant but then we were just left at the camp in the desert as we choose not to go on the optional buggy ride which was extra. The Camel ride was about 2 mins long, then we wandered in to the camp alone with no information, no one to greet us and left to our own devices for about an hour in the heat of the desert. The camp seemed to be poorly organised and when it came to the food service were we were herded like cattle to the service point. The food was not very good and the entertainment was not much better.
