7-Night Dubai and Abu Dhabi Tour
DUBAI AND ABU DHABI TOUR HIGHLIGHTS
With incredible architecture, unbelievable wealth, and one of the world’s largest and most beautiful mosques, our 7-night Dubai and Abu Dhabi tour should have you reaching for your passport! We’ll start our adventure in the desert city of Dubai. Known for its opulence and glamour, we’ll explore all aspects of this vibrant city, from the traditional spice and gold souks, to the world’s tallest building, and a trip into the desert for camel rides and a sunset you’ll never forget. There will also be free time so you can shop till you drop in Dubai’s world-famous shopping malls – even if you don’t buy anything, it’s an experience to behold! We’ll then travel to the nearby city of Abu Dhabi, home of the famed Grand Prix racetrack, more towering skyscrapers, and of course the beautiful Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque which we will visit on our penultimate day.
