Arabian Adventures Tours & Safaris

Since 1987, Arabian Adventures has been at the forefront of destination management, with its headquarters in Dubai and full-fledged operations in Abu Dhabi and Fujairah and professional associates throughout the Gulf. Arabian Adventures brings to destination management a uniquely creative and innovative approach. Clients’ needs are met with meticulous attention to detail. Delivering a total holiday experience is the Arabian Adventures team of professional, multilingual staff, backed by their own air-conditioned, well-maintained fleet of luxury coaches, city buses, cars and specially-equipped four-wheel drive vehicles.

The wide variety of excursions offered by Arabian Adventures takes you on discovery routes of your choice. You can choose from enchanting dinner cruises down the Creek, to journeys of exploration on the vast stretches of sand, wadis and mountains. Special interest activities such as deep sea fishing, diving and golf are all catered for. For the first time we have also included reduced prices for families who wish to enjoy our tours whilst stopping over in Dubai. Check the special children’s price column on the below Tour schedules table valid for all children aged 2 to 12 years.

Vice Versa "cash reward" card

The Vice Versa® card is part of the added value service we constantly seek to provide to our partners at no extra cost. This “cash reward” card has been developed exclusively for overseas visitors and the participating outlets have been selected for their appeal to tourists. The self-explanatory booklet comes with easy-to-follow instructions in English, Arabic, German and Russian.

The card gives visitors the opportunity to shop at over 275 partner outlets, as well as a wide range of Dubai’s leading restaurants, cafés and leisure and entertainment facilities.

The booklet also features practical information on Dubai, a map of the city, tips on “things to do” and “things to see” and floor plans of all the major shopping malls.

Arabian Adventures operates seven days a week and has a 24-hour helpline.

General notes

  • All rates are per person in US dollars and are applicable for Dubai Stopovers bookings.
  • All meals and soft drinks are included in our safaris unless otherwise stated. Please refer to the descriptions for details.
  • The safari vehicles are long-wheelbase four-wheel drives, which are fitted with safety belts and air-conditioning and licensed to carry up to six passengers, excluding the driver. By law, passengers must wear seat belts while the vehicle is in motion.
  • Many of the vehicles are equipped with telephones to provide a constant link with other vehicles in the party as well as the safari base.
  • We recommend that passengers read the safety card held by their safari driver/guide in the vehicle before proceeding on the safari tours.
  • The safaris involve off-road driving through rugged country which adds to the excitement. However, because of the adventurous nature of the journeys and the rough terrains covered, passengers should not participate if their health or any pre-existing medical conditions (including heart ailments or back problems) may be adversely affected. For this reason, we regret that we are unable to accept expectant mothers, passengers with back conditions and passengers under six years or over 65 years of age.
  • Passengers are reminded that photography of military and some government installations is prohibited. With respect to local customs, always ask before taking pictures of Emiratis and do not take photographs of ladies dressed in traditional attire.
