At Dubai and Abu Dhabi everything is huge and majestic: here futuristic engineering works and modern infrastructures meet historical districts, local souks (typical bazars), desert and the sea. In this tour we’ll discover Dubai, where we’ll get on top of the highest skyscraper ever built, the Burj Khalifa. We’ll then take a walk at the Dubai Mall, the biggest mall on the planet, and we’ll spend a night in the desert, with the sight of the skyline on the horizon keeping us company. Then, it will be Abu Dhabi’s tourn! Sheik Zayed’s Grand Mosque’s white marble awaits for us to remain stoked in front of its wonderfulness, and the sea will invade us with peacefulness. UAE are all to discover, we’ll just get a taste of it, but we guarantee you’ll get quite the idea!

Travel mood

We’ll mostly be in the city, but we’ll walk a whole lot! We’ll grind out many kilometers, there are many places we need to visit! Adaptability is required, since we’ll spend a night in a tent, in the desert, to get a full Emirate’s experience.

Travel difficulty

There will be a lot of walking and rhythms will be both strict and relaxed to keep the trip perfectly balanced, as all things should be. We’ll enjoy the days to the fullest, and we’ll go home satisfied!

Welcome in Dubai!

Roundtrip flights are not included in the TO Services so that you can choose where from, when and with whom you want to fly. All of that is up to you!

Check-in at the hotel in Dubai and Welcome Meeting. What can we say… we’re in one of the most advanced cities in the world; skyscrapers are art masterpieces and they’ll make us feel as amazed as we’ll feel small! Today we’ll just imagine what it could be like to be on top of one of those giants, but there will be time for that!

Walking in the city


Dubai is not only modern, therefore we’ll spend the morning discovering the city from the older residential part and the chaotic souks, where local scents will quite surprise us! We’ll look at the less known side of Dubai and we’ll learn about UAE history; wear your most comfortable shoes, we’ll be walking a lot! We’ll take a walk in the Al Fahidi historical district and we’ll have lunch in a typical restaurant -maybe we’ll try the manousheh, a kind of local pizza.

On top of the world

We’ll keep exploring the city, but this time we’ll jump up in time.. and height! We’ll in fact get on top of the Burj Khalifa, which with his 830m is the highest skyscraper ever built by mankind. The Burj Khalifa is impressive both from the outside, with its theatrical fountains, and on the inside, entirely designed by Armani Home. We’ll then get on the 124° floor, where we’ll enjoy the incredible view.

Once back on the streets we’ll go to the Dubai Mall - the biggest mall in the world, worth visiting both for its stores and the inner design and architectural masterpieces. Here we’ll get to see the Dubai Aquarium, an underwater zoo and an entertainment zone with more than 200 attractions. Last stop… how does a welcome dinner with a breathtaking view sound? :)

Beach day!

We’ll start our day at Dubai Marine, and we’ll get to two of the most famous beaches in the city; Kite Beach & Sunset Beach. A picture with the Burj Al Arab in the background it’s basically mandatory! It’s the most luxurious hotel in the world and its sail shape it’s peculiar. Afterwards we’ll spend time in Dubai Marine and at lunch we’ll get to taste local street food -there is a kind for all tastes!

Deep in the desert!

We’ll say goodbye to the city frenzyness for a little bit, and we’ll start our desert adventure! Let’s get on the jeeps and drive towards the dune shaped horizon. Behind us, the city skyline dominates the landscape, and the further we’ll go, the more we’ll appreciate the silhouette. We’ll stop here and there to walk on the sand and take pictures (as usual) until we don’t get to our destination, where a dinner in the desert awaits us while the sun sets and the sky gets painted in stars. We’ll spend the night here, away from everyone and everything; enjoy this peace, it won’t be like anything you’ve quite experienced!

Included: Desert adventure pack and dinner Money Pot: entrance fees Not included: any other food and beverages

Towards Abu Dhabi

We’ll get back in Dubai after our night in the desert, ready to get back to the skyscrapers. We won’t stay for long though; we’ll have the time to get on the vehicles and leave towards Abu Dhabi. Just an hour and a half and we’ll be in the capital of the UAE, and we’ll find ourselves submerged by skyscrapers. Let’s put down our backpacks and quickly eat something, we have a busy afternoon in front of us!

Mosques, museum and markets

 After lunch we’ll visit Sheik’s Zayed Grand Mosque, considered the most important place of worship in the country, built for the will of Sheik Zayed and completed in 2007. We’ll be amazed by how beautiful and big it is: an architectural masterpiece that can host 40 thousand people! We’ll then visit what’s considered as the Abu Dhabi’s Louvre, a museum of art and culture, or if we prefer we could walk around the Iranian souk, a traditional market where we’ll find all kinds of homemade products. We couldn’t miss Qasr Al Watan, the presidential palace, which is another must visit when in the country!

Seaside time!

Today will be totally dedicated to relaxing. We’ll spend the whole day at the beach; this city is famous for its white sand beaches and crystal clear water; let’s put our swimsuit on and dive right in! Our destination is Saadiyat island, where we’ll go on the public beach, get on the loungers and under the umbrellas and we’ll relax in order to think about… nothing! Whoever feels more likely to do some sport activities, all kinds are available including water sports and activities! To each his own :)

Last day of relax!

Say goodbye to Abu Dhabi and we’ll go back to Dubai for our last day in the Emirates! There’s no rush whatsoever, enjoy the view and we’ll calmly go back. Once in Dubai, we’ll leave the luggage in the structure welcoming us and get right into your swimsuit! Just like Abu Dhabi, Dubai has dreamlike beaches! Let’s spend the morning working on our tan, while we can decide what’s up for the afternoon: stay at the beach or shall we go to one of the many theme parks?
After such a relaxing day, the goodbye dinner awaits us! It’s time to relive the past days and toast our next adventure!
