For some people, the United Arab Emirates is only made up of the ultra-modern city of Dubai, boasting towering skyscrapers, massive shopping malls and idyllic beach resorts, however, it offers much more than that.
The country is made up of seven separate emirates, most notably, its capital city of Abu Dhabi - an oil-rich haven which has become a melting pot of unique cultures and is a hub for various sport and leisure activities.
Our tours to the United Arab Emirates explore the city of Dubai, where you can enjoy a spectacular Dhow cruise on Dubai Creek, feasting on board while listening to live music and watching mesmerising Tanura dancers.
We'll also explore Dubai's sandy deserts, with dune riding, sunset photography, belly dancing just a few activities that you can experience with us.

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.
When a single women in her 50's, traveling from the US to Egypt, stumbles across a website offering a tour, and then they make her feel totaling comfortable about every step of the process, you know you've hit a homerun!
I thought it was very good we didn't have to worry about anything everything was in order and kept with the schedule as planned, unless we wanted to deviated from it to do somethingelse. The trip really a trip of a life time.
There was a time many years ago that I wanted to travel to Egypt and didn't because of the cost. This trip was, to me, very affordable. I think everyone should experience this trip. The tour guide was alos excellent, Sherif Mohammad.
Everything about the trip was thought through, fine-tuned , and marvelous. From Ant Horribin helping us arrange the trip, to rep Waled Ali, and our guide Big Mo, we could not have asked for a better team. Our sincere thanks to them.
