Day 1- OVERNIGHT FLIGHT FROM JFK TO DXB

Day 2 - ARRIVE IN DUBAI
It's been a long night and a long flight. After clearing Customs & Immigration, we'll be greeted by our local representative. Our representative will escort us to an air conditioned coach that will transport us to the Carlton Downtown for check-in. You'll have the rest of the evening at your leisure. Take this time to get some rest. It's going to be an adventurous Voyage!

Day 3 - DUBAI (CITY TOUR & DINNER CRUISE)                      (B/D)
After a delicious breakfast at the hotel, the group will be picked up at approximately 9:00 am for a half-day Dubai City Tour. Next, we will be driven through the Jumeirah coastline, where we will make a photo stop overlooking the magnificent "world's luxury hotel" Burj Al Arab. Then we'll head directly to the largest man-made island, The Palm Jumeirah, where we will have another photo stop opposite the luxurious Atlantis the Palm Hotel. Our tour continues with a drive to the old part of Dubai and a walking tour in the Bastakiah area, a step back in time to one of the oldest traditional Emirati neighborhoods set in Bur Dubai. Our Voyage! continues to the entrance of the Dubai Museum, which depicts the traditional and developmental history of Dubai. After the museum, the group will head to the Abra Station to board a water taxi to the Spice Souk.

Our Voyage! doesn't stop there. Next we will head to the Dubai Mall and visit the world’s tallest tower, the breathtaking Burj Khalifa. You will have free time at the Dubai Mall to shop 'til you drop. At 4:00 pm, we'll board our private coach back to the hotel for some leisure time. Enjoy it, because we're not done yet.

At 7:00 pm, we'll leave the hotel and head to the Dubai Marina for a Dhow Dinner Cruise. During this two-hour cruise, we will view the fascinating skyline and scenery of New Dubai. The Dhow Dinner Cruise will include a gourmet 5-star international buffet dinner. Sit back and enjoy the atmospheric soundtrack of Arabic and English music to set the tone. At 10:30pm, we will be driven back to hotel.

Day 4 - DUBAI (DESERT SAFARI)                                                                                        (B, D) 
Today, we begin with breakfast. Afterwards, the rest of the morning is yours to enjoy at your leisure. Our next Voyage! begins at 3:30 pm when we board our six-passenger 4x4 Land Cruisers and head out to the desert. At the entrance of the desert, our drivers will deflate the tires of the 4x4's. That's when the fun starts!! Feel the thrill of desert driving as our professional drivers take us up and down on golden dunes. A beautiful desert sunset stop is also included, as well as a drive to a Bedouin Camp. Our hosts will greet us with a traditional cup of Arabic coffee. Here, you will have the opportunity to ride a camel (at your own expense). Later, a tantalizing BBQ dinner will be served. The evening won't be complete without witnessing the Tanura dance and a belly dancer, who will enchant us with her rhythmic moves--a truly magical night! At 8:30 pm, we will return to hotel. 

Day 5 - DUBAI (ABU DHABI TOUR)                                                                (B)
Our day begins with another delicious breakfast at the hotel. At 9:00 am, we will board our air conditioned coach for a two-hour ride to Abu Dhabi. The first stop of our guided tour will be to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, which is considered as the most architectural treasure of contemporary UAE society - and one of the Largest in the world. Next, we will drive through Corniche Road with a photo stop at the breakwater and the iconic hotel of Abu Dhabi Emirates Palace. We’ll experience different aspects of desert life attractively displayed in the open-air museum, along with workshops, where craftsmen demonstrate traditional skills and women sit weaving and spinning.

The day is not over just yet. After lunch on your own, we will visit the Qasr Al Watan Palace. Qasr Al Watan is an incredible, new and unique landmark in the United Arab Emirates. A Palace brimming with knowledge, offering the world a first-of-its-kind insight into the Arab heritage and the governing principles that shaped the history of the United Arab Emirates and its vision to the future.
