Helping you find the best ways to spend your time in the UAE
— Getting Around —
The best way to get around Dubai is by private chauffeur. The moment you arrive at the airport your personal driver will be awaiting you in a luxury executive vehicle and will be on-call throughout your stay. This Persian Gulf city is known for soaring temperatures, even in winter months, and the ability to hop from place to place from the comfort of your very own air-conditioned chariot cannot be overstated. Dubai can be a complex city to navigate for a visitor, but this is made much easier with a chauffeur at your service with all the insider knowledge that only a local can offer.
— Exploring the City —
There are many ways to experience the city of Dubai, a place at once steeped in history and burgeoning with state-of-the-art development. The city is a fascinating confluence of both traditional influences and modern aspirations, and the available tour options reflect this.

— Cruising the Seas —
It’s impossible to visit a coastal city surrounded by beautiful ocean and luxury yachts without feeling the call to the water. Chartering a Private Yacht Tour will allow you to admire Dubai’s skyline from the privacy of your very own skippered motor yacht cruise. To really amp up the enjoyment, why not book a yacht with a waterslide? If it’s not by land or by sea but by sky that you want to enjoy the splendors of Dubai, booking a seaplane flight is an option too. Step aboard a state-of-the-art Cessna seaplane and thrill as you swoop around top Dubai attractions such as the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al-Arab and palm-shaped island archipelago of the Palm Jumeirah. (You can book your Dubai seaplane adventure here).
— Desert Excursion —
No trip to Dubai is complete without venturing outside the city bounds and exploring the desert. If you’re an early riser, go in the morning and experience the adventures that await, from riding the dunes in a 4×4 to sandboarding to visiting a camel farm.
