      Embark from Dubai at 23:00

    2. Sunday Abu Dhabi, U. Arab Emirates

      Abu Dhabi City Tour

      Duration: 4 hours

      Situated on a T-shaped island in the coastal waters of the Gulf, Abu Dhabi is not only the capital of the United Arab Emirates, but also home to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring architecture, futuristic skyscrapers and magnificent mosques.

      Once you leave the pier, the tour will take you to the unforgettably beautiful Sheikh Zayed Mosque, a masterpiece of neo-Islamic architecture and one of the largest mosques in the world. The outer areas of the Mosque are graced by around 1.000 columns, all covered with more than 20.000 marble panels that are inlaid with semi-precious stones, including lapis lazuli, red agate, amethyst, abalone shell and mother of pearl.

      Next, the leisurely tour will take you along the spectacular Corniche Road and through the city of Abu Dhabi fondly referred to as the ”Manhattan of
      Arabia” due to its profusion of ultramodern glass skyscrapers.

      You will also have an opportunity to take photos of the luxurious Emirates Palace Hotel (outside only), which is unique in its impressive location. The tour wraps up with a visit to Manarat Al Saadyat, a special visitor centre that offers a fascinating insight into the development of the richest city in the world.
      Please note: Guests visiting the Mosque should wear conservative attire: loose-fitting clothes, long trousers and no transparent garments, shorts or short skirts, which are considered disrespectful. Ladies should take a headscarf to cover their heads and keep their shoulders covered. On religious celebrations, the Mosque visit will be outside only. Guests should take off their shoes upon entering the Mosque and not touch any architectural features inside. Wheelchair users must be accompanied by a paying helper to aid with getting on and off the coach; wheelchairs must be collapsible/foldable since the coach has neither a ramp nor a lift.
      Wheelchair users wishing to take part in this are requested to contact the Shore Excursions’ Desk promptly once they are on board so that arrangements can be made. This tour is available in the morning and can be combined with one of the afternoon tours with code: AUH09, AUH23 or AUH35.

       

    3. Monday Sir Bani Yas Is, U. Arab Emirates

      MINI ISLAND TOUR – SBY09

      Duration 1:30 min

      One of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Al Nahyan’s visionary achievements was to turn Sir Bani Yas island into a wildlife sanctuary, where hunting is banned, that offers both endangered and other species of local and foreign origin a home to roam free. Part of this ”Greening of the Desert” programme was also aimed at making the desert environment more hospitable for human habitation. This appealing look at the island intends to showcase the legacy left by Sheikh Zayed, which includes a development policy whose top priority is to promote harmony between nature and culture. The island provides a safe habitat for numerous free-roaming animals as well as myriad trees and other vegetation. Your sightseeing ride around Sir Bani Yas will include a stop at the historical Falconry site, overlooking the northern coast, providing interesting facts on the places visited.
      Please note: guests will receive audio guides in several language. This tour is not available to guests with mobility problems, using a wheelchair and for pregnant women. Guests are recommended to wear sport shoes high-factor sunscreen. Minimum age to take part in this tour: 4. Sighting of animals cannot be guaranteed all the time; the tour follows a circular itinerary around the island without approaching the reserve too much for safety reasons.

      This panoramic tour begins with a visit to the Grand Mosque, which was built over a period of 6 years from 1995 to 2001.

    6. Thursday Khasab,Oman

      CITY TOUR OF KHASAB & BUKHA – KHS01

      Duration: 3:30 h

      Explore Khasab and its surrounding areas from the comfort of an air-conditioned coach or microbus. The tour begins with a visit to the picturesque Fort Khasab, built in the 17th century by the Portuguese in an attempt to control maritime trade in the Strait of Hormuz. The fort was erected to prevent attacks from the sea. Teak wood from India was used for its construction and the roof was fashioned from a mix of palm leaves and clay. Within its low, crenellated walls, the fort contains a large
      central tower which is thought to pre-date the fort itself. The structure you see today is the result of extensive restoration work carried out in the late 20th century.
      The fort’s location offers excellent views and photo opportunities. Leaving the keep, the tour continues along the coastal road for about an hour to Bukha, which borders the Emirate of Ras al Khaima. On the way, enjoy the spectacular scenery along this ruggedly beautiful coastal route and hone your camera skills at various photo stops. Overlooking the sea and with a backdrop of mountains, the Fort at Bukha is the final stop of the tour and affords more breathtaking views from its gorgeous setting.
