Overview

This day is all about the Journey, not the destination!

As enthusiastic explorers passionate about the nature and history of the UAE, we bring you along on a surprisingly accessible, yet off the beaten track Journey.

You will drive across 5 different Emirates and 5 distinct landscapes and explore the lesser known but stunning interior regions of the UAE, along with deserts, geological wonders, vast alluvial plains, and winding mountain wadi's.

Kids will be engaged with a fun and engaging and educational Journey quiz!

Explore those places only a few have been to from the comfort and safety of your own car.

During the rides, we drive ahead of you and communicate by walkie-talkies.

We make many wonderful stops during our full day Journey that flows like a story, an expedition that would even entice the old explorers and will give you memories for years to come!

A fantastic trip to the heart of the Emirates. A must when you’re staying in Dubai. Konrad is a very knowledgable and friendly guide and ready to answer all our questions. We enjoyed immensely visiting the desert, mountains and local farms and can highly recommend this adventure.

Joined the trip based on recommendations from other friends who had attended this earlier.

Salua @ Unveil Arabia has a passion for what she does and hence goes the extra mile to not only take you through the journey but along the way get you in touch with the authentic Arabia - be it the landscape, flora and fauna or traditional culture and people.

All you do the whole day is make memories from the journey!

Very well done Salua!!
Great experience!
