The Dubai ConneXion

Dune Buggies In The Desert!

Designed as a two night stopover itinerary, the Dubai ConneXion is for those who don´t want to miss out on experiencing the total craziness of this Arabian megalopolis. You´ll be picked up directly from the airport as you land (and of course, dropped off when you leave), so no time is wasted in getting you right into the heart of the action.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Nationals from the United Kingdom do not need a visa to enter Dubai you will be issued one at the airport. Other nationalities should check prior to travel.

  • You will need a driving license in order to drive around Dune buggy in the desert, if you cannot drive you will be driven by a guide (the buddies are twin seater vehicles). Please note you will need to be up to drive a manual car.

  • Meals and not included, you should expect to budget London prices for meals.

  • Whilst this is quite a fall on itinerary, there is some free time, you will be centrally located but as you are essentially inner-city in the desert you certainly won’t want to walk anywhere. Taxis are cheap and plentiful most rides tend to cost between two and five pounds.

  • Dubai has one of the worlds best drop zones, if you really want to go for it we suggest you check out skydive Dubai and book a jump over the palm!

  • One of our locally based English-speaking reps will meet you at the airport. They will have a sign with your name on it.
