After pickup from your Dubai hotel, set off on your morning 4.5-hour city tour by comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. On route, learn how today’s city began as a small fishing port on Dubai Creek before quickly rising to prosperity during the mid-20th century oil boom. Stop first at Dubai Museum, housed in 18th-century Al Fahidi fort in the city’s heritage area. Trace Dubai’s past through the displays, and then ride a wooden abra water taxi across Dubai Creek. Step ashore to visit the Heritage Village, a showcase of bygone local life; and explore the colorful Spice Souk and Gold Souk before heading into the Jumeirah district, where upscale villas and hotels hold sway. See the gleaming modern domes of Jumeirah Mosque, and stop for photos by Jumeirah Beach and the Burj Al Arab, the stunning sail-shaped hotel set on an artificial island.

After your tour and a drop-off back at your hotel, enjoy ample free time to have lunch (own expense) and relax before a mid-afternoon 4×4 pickup for your desert trip. Hop inside a 4×4 with a professional driver and head into the UAE interior. Then, go off road for a 20- to 25-minute dune bash. After hurtling up and down the sands, stop for desert photos and try out the latest desert sport: sand boarding. As the sun sets, arrive at a Bedouin-style desert camp, and enjoy a traditional Arabian welcome of tea and sweets, together with activities such as camel riding and falconry displays. Then, after admiring the magical sunset views, enjoy a buffet barbecue dinner served with unlimited sodas, water, tea, and coffee. Finish by relaxing in a traditional, cushion-strewn majlis seating area, and watching a sparkling belly dancing show and whirling dervish-style tanoura performance.
