How many days should you spend in Dubai?

For non-architects, three to four days will be plenty of time to see everything you need to see. Be very mindful of when you choose to visit. The weather gets very hot between May and September, and uncomfortable if you aren’t used to the desert heat.

Where should you stay in Dubai?

You will have your choice of impressive hotel rooms in this city. For the more budget-conscious travelers, know that you won’t have to miss out just because you can’t afford to stay at the fancier places! Plan ahead for experiences at Dubai’s luxury hotels. Make dinner reservations at Burj Al-Arab, or stop by for an afternoon cocktail (and view of the Burj Khalifa) at The Address Downtown Dubai.

Be conscious of cultural differences

If you are heading to Dubai for the first time, you may have questions about the laws that Western tourists consider unusual. In short, be respectful. Dress conservatively and make sure your shoulders are covered. Public displays of affection are considered unlawful. Also, the consumption of alcohol in public is illegal, except in specified bars.

Family Adventure Holidays and Guided Tours

TAKE THE CLAN ON A FAR-FLUNG ADVENTURE THIS YEAR

For budding explorers

If you’re looking for a family adventure holiday with a difference, our family and teen tours cater specifically to families travelling with young adults and children. Each itinerary has been carefully planned with the family in mind with interesting excursions and comfortable transportation and hotels chosen specifically for their family-friendly facilities.

All of our family adventure holidays and tours include a range of cultural and active experiences to tantalize young travelers – riding a camel at the Pyramids, sailing on board a felucca in Aswan, climbing the Great Wall and flying kites in China and camping out in the Sahara Desert in Morocco to name just a few.

Travel made easy

If the idea of group travel doesn’t have you reaching for your passport, our private tours allow you to get off the beaten track and travel at your own pace on a holiday that can be tailored to suit your requirements.

With well-planned itineraries in many of our destinations, our experienced English-speaking guides will show you around all of the sites of interest, while our local representatives are on hand to help with anything else you may need. Feel free to change any of our suggested tour itineraries – upgrade your hotels, add in another few days of sightseeing, or spend more time in a particular location; it’s up to you. Our expert team of holiday planners are happy to help.
