Are group tours to the UAE worth it?

Yes, tours are absolutely worth the price in the UAE. Due to logistical challenges of traveling in the country, many travelers choose to take a guided tour of the UAE. Tour operators here can easily plan an entire trip for you that includes transportation, hotels, food, activities, local guides, and more. While it's always possible to plan your own trip, in many places it's worth a little extra cost for the peace of mind to have it planned out for you in advance.

Is a group tour cheaper than solo travel to the UAE?

You can find many situations where tours in the UAE are more cost-effective compared to an independently planned trip. The affordability of a tour depends on factors such as the destinations covered, level of luxury, and duration. Each tour and independent trip is unique, but tour providers often offer competitive prices that match the luxury level of an independent trip with the same amenities. On average, a tour in the UAE costs $207 per day, with many tours priced below this average, although some are higher. Prices for tours in the UAE range from $197 to $23,000. When comparing costs with independent travel, it's important to consider that guided tours typically include accommodations, transportation, guides, meals, tickets, and even more. To accurately compare prices, it is essential to understand the inclusions of a tour package and thoroughly research the costs of independent travel in the UAE.

Group Tours vs. Independent Travel in the UAE

For many travelers, it is a hard decision whether to travel with an organized tour package or to plan a trip independently. Organized tour packages are a great way to travel in the UAE in 2024 or 2025 because a variety of great deals and sales are now available. Also, because guided tours tend to be all-inclusive, they will provide great values on accommodations, transportation, entry tickets, food, and other travel necessities. You'll also have the benefits of knowledgable guides as well as the peace of mind that you don't have to plan out the entire trip. On the other hand, traveling independently provides more flexibility and control over your travel plans instead of the fixed schedule of a tour package. You can shift your schedule and budget around as needed. Also, it's easier to get closer to local cultures and visit those harder to reach destinations that tours usually don't visit.

What are the benefits of a package tour to the UAE?

Traveling with a tour provides a multitude of advantages. One of the most significant benefits is the convenience of having all the details sorted out for you. From arranging transportation to securing accommodations and planning activities, everything is taken care of, allowing you to have a worry-free experience. This means you won't have to stress about finding suitable places to stay, figuring out logistics, or potentially missing out on any important sights. Additionally, most tours offer all-inclusive pricing, giving you a clear understanding of the total cost of your trip before you depart. The beneifits of a tour are

  • knowledgeable guides
  • comfortable amenities
  • not having to plan
  • reliable service and schedule
  • fixed budget
  • meeting other like-minded travelers
  • eliminating risks

What are the benefits of independent travel in the UAE?

The advantages of independent travel include freedom, control, and flexibility. When you travel independently, you have the freedom to decide where to stay, which attractions to visit, when and where to eat, and how to navigate the destination. Taking charge of these choices also gives you greater control over your budget, schedule, itinerary, and the level of luxury you desire during your trip. Other benefits include:

  • in-depth cultural opportunities
  • off-the-beaten-path destinations
  • flexible schedules
  • flexible budget

How far in advance should I book my tour to the UAE?

To ensure your spot on the tour to the UAE, it is recommended to plan and book well in advance, preferably a few months or more prior to the departure date. While it is not uncommon for many people to reserve their tours up to a year ahead, our experience indicates that booking around 6 to 9 months in advance is typically adequate. It is essential to consider that numerous tours get fully booked ahead of time, so early booking guarantees your place on the trip. Moreover, booking early can result in significant cost savings, as tour companies often offer early booking sales and discounted prices. However, it is important to be aware that some tour companies may occasionally offer last-minute discounts for tours that are not fully booked. Nevertheless, waiting for last-minute discounts entails the risk of missing out on a spot if the tour reaches full capacity.

How many people are in group tours to the UAE?

When it comes to tours in the UAE, group sizes can range from as small as 4 to as large as 200 people, with an average group size of 52. Nevertheless, it's worth mentioning that the size of the tour does not necessarily correlate with its cost or overall experience.

How much time do I need for a group tour to the UAE?

Most organized tour packages to the UAE typically last around 6 days, although the duration can vary. Tours can range from 2 to 13 days, or even longer. It is important to note that longer tours may be more expensive initially, but their cost per day tends to decrease. Additionally, longer tours offer the opportunity to visit multiple destinations at a comfortable pace, making them a worthwhile investment.

Where do group tours go in the UAE?

Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Fujairah, Al Ain, and Yas Island are the most popular tour destinations in the UAE, with these being some of the main highlights.

What tour and travel companies offer packages to the UAE?

Plenty of companies are offering package tours to and around the UAE, but not all of them are the same. Some of the companies are large international operators that have solid reputations. Other companies are smaller and offer more unique and locally-based insights into the country. With larger companies, tours are rarely cancelled and customer service is generally high. With smaller companies, you're more likely to have a trip that gives you more local and personable experiences.

The companies offering the most tours in the UAE are Receptivo Aborigen Tours, JTR Holidays, GrayLine UAE and Oman, Remaz Tours GmbH, and Booking Tours. All of them tend to offer quality trips with high guest ratings.

What is the best tour company offering trips to the UAE?

When it comes to tours in the UAE, Oman Day Tours takes the top spot with their highly-rated tour packages. Their dedication to quality service and captivating journeys has won them plenty of accolades from previous guests.
