Day 1 - Welcome to Dubai
Upon arrival, you’ll be warmly greeted and chauffeured to your choice of deluxe or luxury hotel in the heart of this vibrant and sophisticated city.
Day 2 - Discover Dubai
After breakfast, our private car, driver and guide will be waiting to take you on a tour of this vibrant and fascinating city. You’ll begin inside the historic Al Fahidi Fort, built in 1787. Here the Dubai Museum offers well-curated exhibits that trace Dubai’s evolution from a quiet village of pearl divers and fishermen to a 21st-century icon of commerce, finance and style. Then cross Dubai Creek in a traditional Arabian abra to explore the bustling narrow alleyways of the gold and spice souks. At the Women’s Museum, you’ll learn about the historical and present-day cultural roles of women in the United Arab Emirates. Next you’ll admire the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Palace, the opulent residence of Dubai’s ruler and Prime Minister of the UAE. Admire the beautifully ornamented façade and minarets of the Jumeirah Mosque and then visit the Islamic Art Museum, heralded for its worldwide collection. Take in the spectacular sail-inspired silhouette of the Burj Al Arab before returning to your hotel. The balance of your afternoon and evening are at leisure to enjoy and explore at your own pace.
We also offer a variety of guided tours, activities and dining experiences to enhance your stay. Some of these excursions are full-day activities that require at least one more night’s stay here in Dubai.
