The UAE is a great family destination, offering something for everyone. This private luxury tour includes cultural touring, soft-adventure activities, time for beachside relaxation, and a stay in the desert.
During private touring with your own guide and driver, explore Dubai according to the interests of your family. Learn about Dubai’s culture and history while exploring the Bastakiya Quarter, riding on an abra (water taxi) across Dubai Creek—the bustling waterway in the heart of the city—and browsing the spice and gold souks. Perhaps visit one of Dubai’s legendary malls, or venture to the top of the landmark Burj Khalifa for a panoramic view from the 124th-floor observation deck. One day, enjoy the water slides, river rides and other exciting attractions at Aquaventure water park, or hone your skiing or snowboarding on the slopes at Ski Dubai. Alternatively, visit the Dubai Aquarium, enjoy thrill rides and video games at SEGA Republic, or spend a day at Kidzania, where children can play at adult occupations. Other family-friendly options we can arrange in Dubai include lessons in henna painting, belly dancing, or a traditional Arabian feast on a traditional dhow boat.

Next, venture into the beautiful Liwa Desert, the gateway to the Empty Quarter, in the neighboring emirate of Abu Dhabi. Stay two nights in a luxury, traditional Emirati-style resort set among rolling sand dunes, and enjoy on-site amenities and activities such as the kids club, swimming pool, tennis courts and yoga. Optional activities in the surrounding area include hiking, mountain biking, archery, falconry, dune bashing, desert drives and camel rides.
