Full description
Experience the best of Dubai on this 6-hour combined helicopter tour and desert safari!

Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the city of Dubai on board a luxury helicopter. You’ll depart from a helipad at The Palm Jumeirah, and fly like a rock star for 15 minutes, admiring Dubai from high up in the sky!

See Dubai’s iconic buildings and magnificent skyline from the unique perspective of a helicopter. Each helicopter features 5 seats, including 3 window seats for maximum views.

As you take off from Palm Jumeirah, you’ll soar over the beautiful Persian Gulf coastline and Palm island, and pass right by the Burj Al Arab and World Islands.

Heading inland, you’ll fly over Union Square, Sheikh Zayyed Road, and the Mall of the Emirates. Of course, no helicopter tour of Dubai would be complete without cruising past the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building!

On your desert safari you’ll drive into the Arabian desert to an authentic Bedouin locale. Experience dune bashing en route to the desert campsite, where you’ll be served a sumptuous dinner.

Enjoy a shisha (Arabic water pipe) and the entertainment provided by a belly dancer. Other activities include a camel ride, henna painting, a falconry demonstration, and more.
