Going on tours in the UAE is a good way to learn more about the country and have fun. The Emirates have a well-developed tourist infrastructure, the country is proud of its sights and attractions. Travel agencies offer a large number of tours, but which to choose? The vacation often lasts 7-10 days and tourists want to have time for all activities: sunbathe enough, swim in the sea, relax near the pool, see all the UAE's sights, visit world-famous shopping centers and go shopping at authentic arabic market. In this article we will tell how to do everything you want and not to spend a lot of money.
If you visit the Emirates for the first time, we recommend you to start exploring the country with sightseeing tours. They usually include several important and iconic sights. You will learn about the culture of the Arab people and the achievements which the eastern state has become famous for in a short time.
Of course, you should visit the capital of the Emirates - Abu Dhabi, where the UAE's popular attractions are located - the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the Louvre Museum and the artificial Yas island with Ferrari World Park. A sightseeing tour in Abu Dhabi is a perfect option.
You can plunge into the dizzying atmosphere of the skyscrapers of the super metropolis, see the most amazing creations of the human imagination during the Dubai City tour.You will take a photo near the tallest building the Burj Khalifa tower and the Burj Al Arab hotel, walk around the magnificent Dubai Marina, visit the huge Dubai Mall and watch the fountain show. You can choose a tour with a visit to one of the largest aquariums in the world - Dubai Aquarium in the Dubai Mall.
Sightseeing tours in Abu Dhabi and Dubai are available from any emirate. Sightseeing tours in Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Fujairah are often available only from the same states. You can book individual tours from other emirates, which can be more expensive if you relax in a small company.
If you don't have enough time, but you want to visit all the emirates, then the “6 Emirates in one day” tour will be suitable for you. During one day, you will see the UAE: super modern Dubai, sand dunes and a green oasis in Fujairah. It will take about 6 hours to travel (in general, in 2 directions), so the tour will not be suitable for families with small children and for those who don’t like long journeys. In this case a tour to the Indian Ocean will be a better option, you will see completely different landscapes - the desert, palm groves, the ocean coast surrounded by mountains. There will be more time to relax on the coast.
The Arabian desert is the place where many generations of the Arab people built their life. For us, the desert is an unusual natural phenomenon. Seeing dawn in the desert will be an unforgettable experience. Then you can warm yourself with hot tea prepared by the Bedouins. A safari on jeeps or ATVs on sand dunes will give a charge of energy and positive emotions.
A large number of water parks have been built in the UAE, almost every state has its own water park. There are even three of them in Dubai! Each park has its own advantages, but we recommend choosing the Aquaventure water park . A tour to the Aquaventure water park, which is located in the Atlantis complex, will allow you to visit the closed artificial Palm Jumeirah island. The water park has more than 30 slides and a children's area with water attractions, and a long lazy river. In addition to the dizzying slopes, you can visit the Lost Chambers Aquarium. When riding from some slides, you may see stingrays and sharks through the glass. Moreover, the water park has its own private beach with umbrellas and sun loungers.
If you want to spend time in the animal world in the shade of green trees, you can go on a tour to Al Ain. A journey into the animal world is pleasant for both adults and children. The largest zoo on the Arabian Peninsula with an area of 400 hectares is located in Al Ain.
Holidays in the UAE are expensive enough, but the level of tourist services is always the highest. Prices for tours start from $ 35 per person and depend on which emirate you are staying at. For example, the price for Dubai sightseeing tour will be the lowest for tourists living in Dubai, and the most expensive for guests from other emirates - Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Umm al-Kaiwan. Combined tours (as part of a group) are always cheaper than individual ones.
Individual tours in the UAE is a profitable solution for companies of 5 or more people. You can share the cost of transport and services of a guide for the whole company and enjoy the company of your friends only, the attention of the guide will be concentrated only on you.
