Day 1: Night Cruise with Sea Breeze & Dinner
We start our trip to the United Arab Emirates in Dubai. This is also where we are based for the entire duration of our tour. It is from here we make daily excursions, which are packed with unique adventures and excitement. Today we pick you up from the airport and take you to your hotel. In the evening, we go on a traditional boat cruise inside the marina. Dinner is included on this evening’s cruise.
Day 2: Helicopter Ride, Nonstop Activities in the Desert & Belly Dancing
There is no better way for us to start this morning than with a flightseeing tour over Dubai. Afterwards, we head to the desert. There we go dune bashing, sand boarding, quad riding and camel riding as well as watch a belly dance show. Dinner is included on today’s tour.
Day 3: The Presidential Palace, a Dates Market, an Island & a Grand Mosque
Today we are making a daytrip to Abu Dhabi, specifically to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Yas Island, the city waterfront, Dates Market, Emirates Palace and the Presidential Palace. We are provided with a private and fully guided tour. We also have our own private driver.
Day 4: Warm Waters, Snorkeling & Lots of Arab Markets
Our morning begins with a drive to the town of Fujairah. From there, we go snorkeling in warm waters. We then return to Dubai and are provided with a private and fully guided city tour. Dubai’s greatest draws are its lavish hotels, exotic beaches and hard-to-beat shopping opportunities. This city is so young yet located in a region so old. Highlights for today in Dubai include Gold Souk, Perfume Souk, Spice Souk and Bur Dubai (a.k.a. Old Dubai).
Day 5: Exploring Dubai’s Most Famous Attractions
Best known for its white sands, clear waters and prestigious, innovative and world-renowned hotel resorts (think seven-star hotel), Dubai has rightfully been a mecca for tourists for several years now. To describe the city of Dubai with few words: one giant mall! True, Dubai is not generally known for its historical landmarks. Nonetheless, its modernistic attractions are both impressive and undeniably creative. These below are the highlights for today.
1. Dubai Frame: This is a contemporary looking landmark.
2. Dubai Mall
3. Burj Khalifa Skyscraper: The views from atop are great.
4. Souk Madinat
5. Ski Dubai: Here you can see an indoor ski resort. Note that skiing is not a part of today’s tour.
6. Dubai Miracle Garden
7. Global Village: This is a cultural, entertainment and shopping destination.
Day 6: Our Tour Ends This Morning
Transportation will be arranged for you to reach the airport in Dubai.
As a female solo traveler I have truly enjoyed every second of my stay with this company. I was very nervous but because they were so organized I was able to relax and not have to think too much on my trip. This was a dream come true for me and it’s absolutely worth it. The best part is I get a personal concierge in case I need anything I would do it again and highly recommend this trip.
The United Arab Emirates tour was super cool. Definitely an opportunity of a lifetime. Charlie was very accommodating and plans everything well to the last bit. I’d gladly go on another one of his tours again.
I had never been to Asia before, but this tour made me want to go back whenever I get the chance again. You get to do a bit of everything around Emirates, whether it’s going on a boat cruise, driving in the desert, visiting a palace, and much more. I highly recommend this tour of Charlie’s.
A truly unforgettable trip... amazing. I could not have asked for anything better. Safety was also well taken care of. I will be talking to my friends about this trip for a while!
Enjoyment, unique cultural experiences, great planning: this tour has everything a tourist could ask for, if not more. My highlight would probably be the camel ride. I’d recommend Charlie’s company to everyone!
One thing I appreciated was how well-timed everything was. You get to do a variety of activities, but you also get some time to explore for yourself. Charlie is a genuine guy that takes the time to make sure his clients get the best experience possible. I’ll never forget this trip.
If you’re thinking of going on one of Charlie’s tours, just do it. You won’t regret it. Going on this trip was one of the best decisions of my life, I got so much out of it. The Arab Emirates tour shows you many wonders of the country, it was well planned out.
I’ve been on a few other planned tours, but this one beat them all. A very unique experience, which was also very safe and well thought out. Grateful I got to see this part of the world thanks to Charlie!!
Excellent trip. Could not have asked for better planning-wise. Charlie and the guides were very knowledgeable and welcoming, which made the experience even better. I’d gladly go on another one of his tours.
You can tell Charlie knows what he’s doing. He made sure everything went smoothly and planned a balanced itinerary. The tour was fantastic, I especially enjoyed the Grand Mosque. An experience of a lifetime, I highly enjoyed it.
One word: Unforgettable. This tour had everything I was looking for - cultural experiences and thrilling activities. I was a fan of the safari adventure!! The organization of everything was also perfect. Next time I go on one of Charlie’s tours, I’ll make sure to bring a couple more friends!
Charlie is a great person who is also great at planning tours like this. Going with a company that plans everything well for you just lifts such a lift off your shoulder. I didn’t have to worry about anything because everything was well thought of. United Arab might have been the first tour I took of Charlie’s, but it won’t be the last, that’s for sure.
Charlie, I raise my hat to you. I don’t know how he does it, but this man plans truly wonderful trips. The timing of everything is perfect, and the chosen activities were very enriching. United Arab Emirates is a beautiful country that everyone should get to see at least once.
This trip was amazing!! I loved every single part of it. The great planning made everything easier, so you can just lay back and enjoy every moment without stressing about other things. Charlie is a great guy, I recommend his tours to everyone, especially the United Arab one.
A once in a lifetime trip. United Arab Emirates is beautiful, and this tour does a great job at showing you what’s in the country, all while being extremely well organized and safe. Charlie’s professionalism was just the cherry on top.
Wonderful. Great itinerary. Knowledgeable and welcoming tour guides... this tour was just what I had been looking for! I’ll definitely consider going on another one of Charlie’s tours in the future, since the United Arab one exceeded my expectations.
If you’re looking for a tour where there’s a mix of exciting activities and relaxing cultural experiences, look no more. I was very impressed with the quality of the United Arab tour. They do a great job at showing you everything there is to see! I was blown away by the architecture in the country. Thank you for everything Charlie!!
The Dubai Frame, Souk Madinat, Gold Souk, the Grand Mosque, these are just a few things included in the United Arab tour. I was blown away by the beauty of the country, it was an amazing experience. Charlie is very organized and will ensure the trip goes smoothly.
10/10. I was amazed by the tour, its planning, Charlie’s organization, the tour guides, just everything. It was my first time trying out a tour like this, but it won’t be my last because everything went so well!! Charlie, thank you for everything, it was a pleasure meeting you.
I was blown away by the beauty of the country. Going on a tour allowed me to enjoy United Arab Emirates and its cultural richness without having to worry about the little details, because Charlie makes sure it’s all well taken care of. I wouldn’t hesitate to book another one of his tours in the near future..!
Charlie, THANK YOU!! This trip was truly great!! The tour was super well organized and included a variety of things to visit. The Presidential Palace was just wow. Everything was also well timed. It was an awesome experience that I’d gladly redo if I had the chance.
