Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Dubai, then start your journey to the peaceful desert surroundings for a sunset experience of a lifetime.

Make your way to a camel caravan, and experience the beauty of the landscape from the back of one of the "ships of the desert" for about 30-45 minutes depending on the option selected. Take (optional) rides up and down the dunes in the twilight. Then, go to a Bedouin-style camp for a traditional Arabic coffee (kahwa) or tea on arrival. Snack on rich dates and other dried fruits and experience a part of the desert lifestyle. Feel "Old Arabia" come to life in a unique Bedouin setting.

Take part in traditional activities to complete your journey into the culture of the Arab world. Try your hand at smoking a shisha pipe or get a henna tattoo on your hand. Dress in typical Arabic attire and pose for a photo with a falcon resting on your hand or shoulder. 

Feast from a delicious barbecue buffet dinner as you watch authentic belly dance folk performances. Relax under a canopy of stars, and get dropped off at your accommodation at the end of the tour services.
