The UAE is a great family destination—an enjoyable destination for travelers of all ages. This private luxury tour includes personalized cultural touring, soft-adventure activities, time for beachside relaxation, and an excursion to the desert near Dubai.

Begin in Dubai and experience the best of the city during flexible touring personalized according to the interests of your family. Learn about Dubai's culture and history while exploring Old Dubai. See the traditional buildings of the Bur Dubai district and Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood (formerly known as Bastakiya), ride an abra (water taxi) across Dubai Creek, and browse the spice and gold souks. Also learn about how spices are used in regional cooking, and sample typical Emirati dishes. Visit tile-covered mosques, and see ultra-modern skyscrapers, including the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. Dubai is also a renowned shopping destination, with atmospheric souks and legendary luxury malls filled with exclusive boutiques and attractions. Visit the Dubai Aquarium and hone your skiing or snowboarding skills on the slopes at Ski Dubai. Depending on your interests, also experience Dubai's burgeoning art and design scene during visits to interesting shops and galleries housed in converted traditional and industrial buildings.

Other family-friendly options we can arrange in Dubai include visiting one of Dubai's water parks, seeing the Dubai Fountain, lessons in henna painting, a private falconry lesson, belly dancing, enjoying Dubai's beaches and exciting dining and entertainment districts or visiting attractions such as Dubai Miracle Garden, SEGA Republic or KidZania.

Next, journey into the Arabian Desert, and stay in your own private tented accommodation at a luxury resort surrounded by sand dunes and palm trees. Relax in your private pool, and enjoy activities according to your interests, such as camel and horseback riding, naturalist-led tours focused on desert plants and animals, wildlife-spotting, traditional sports such as falconry and archery, and thrilling four-wheel drive (4x4) tours through the sand dunes.

Continue to Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE. During private touring, visit the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital and the most interesting cultural sites, such as the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Al Hosn Palace and Emirates Palace. Also visit Ferrari World theme park to experience thrilling roller coasters and other fun attractions. Other options, depending on your interests, include seeing other museums and structures on Saadiyat Island or experiencing futuristic Masdar City.
