8 Day Dubai FAM Trip (Travel Agents Inspection Tour)
 
Copied from: http://www.travelagentprofessional.com/off-the-bucket-list.html

By Les-Lee Roland - Owner of The Package Deal

As I erased one more destination off my bucket list, I had mixed feelings. Of course it’s great to visit a place I have wanted to see, but now, as my list is getting smaller, I am concerned that I will check off the last three places and then what will I look forward to in the future. I finally saw Dubai. What I called the “EST” city.  

That’s because almost everything we saw was either referred to as the Best, the Biggest, the Largest, you get the idea.  The Egyptian guide - who was perfect, was so gung ho on his adopted country and for very good reason.  People on our fam soon felt the same way.

When I told people about my recent trip to Dubai, I was surprised that so many were saying that it was on their bucket list.  Yet, few know anything about this fairly new city.  We were there for the 45th anniversary of the most populous area of the United Arab Emirates.

Yes, the skyscrapers are unbelievable.  Currently the largest building in the world,  Burj Khalifa will lose that title when a new taller building is completed. That’s why they are building two even taller already.  And the new airport will be the largest in the world.  Along with the new Disney theme park- which will be…you guessed it…the largest.
 
The hotels are the almost the most expensive in the world.  Thank goodness we had a wonderful host for our tour with Right Travel in New Jersey.  Even our hotel inspections were fun.  There is a duplicate of Atlantis among the man made  palm tree island.
A surprise was going to the largest mall, and seeing Five Guys, Pottery Barn, Bloomingdales and so many American stores. All were next to the biggest designer’s stores – Chanel, Dior, and on and on. Something else you can only see at the Mall in Dubai- an indoor ski sloop with penguins walking around as you enter.  Don’t worry about packing a parka, they provide one.

For a country that’s known for no alcoholic beverages, that was soon disproved by certain hotels and nightspots. And once you land in Dubai, many went first to the Duty Free Store to stock up for the week.

The Dubai women have choices in how they dress, and some even drive cars.  But none are working.  Most shopkeepers and hoteliers are Dubai men or women from other countries who kept saying how happy they are to live there.

Highlights!  Loved the desert safari which was a roller coaster of a ride through the sand to a large area with food, henna painting, entertainment.  A whirling Dervish who was absolutely unreal.

We had a quick visit to Ferrari Land.  Didn’t ride the biggest roller coaster, but got great souvenirs for the family.
A day trip to Abu Dhabi to see one of the most magnificent mosques in the world.  Almost the largest.  But it’s carpet and chandeliers are the biggest.

And along the way, always a surprise here and there. An ariel show flying over a Sheik’s palace stopped traffic – literally everyone just stopped driving to get out and look. And nobody complained. Visits to museums and forts helped us understand the history of the area.

But possibly the simplest but most memorable was to the camel market. Seeing a one day old baby camel and the beauty of these animals, who literally tried to get out of their cages to let us pet them. And seeing them work out on the race track, since camel racing is a national pastime.

Falcons are another important pastime for the Sheiks.  There is a special retreat and hospital we didn’t see, but it’s scheduled for our next trip.

Sheiks sometimes travel with their falcons on Emirates Airlines.  The birds have their own seats.  Well, they can afford it.
This is a country with no taxes, and generous Sheiks even pick up the costs for villas for Emirates pilots and others.  So as expensive as some things are, others are affordable.

Least I forget the wonderful “souks”, the small shops that sell everything from over the top gold jewelry to fabrics and purses, incredible perfumes, souvenirs, carpets, and extra luggage to carry them back.  I even bought a lighting fixture that is, if I may say, the “prettiest” one I could find. A constant reminder of such a pleasant time.

When I looked at the upcoming calendar for Dubai, one convention after another.  Even a World Travel Show in 2020.

My enthusiasm is contagious.  Just talking about it to friends and clients, and I have enough for two group dates with Right Travel, a company that really is the “friendliness” for my clients.

Greetings Medhat. I had quite a memorable and enjoyable time in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The guide, Mohammed, was highly knowledgeable, informative, professional and punctual. I learned so much from him during the tours. I was highly pleased with the driver and Samer (our contact person) as well. I was also very pleased with the hotel accommodations and the breakfasts that were served. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently. I would certainly use Right Travel again and have already referred your name and agency to a friend who is considering travelling abroad soon. Thank you for your professional assistance with these travel plans.

Best Regards,

8 Day Classic Dubai & Abu Dhabi Private Tour

Dear Medhat,

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Dubai. We had an excellent tour guide that made things as easy for us as possible. He was knowledgeable, kind and most helpful. I would certainly recommend Right Travel to anyone wanting to visit Dubai. We had absolutely no problems with either our plane or hotel reservations.

You may have had it in your travel information but It would be good to be reminded that the tour guide will have a sign for Right Travel, not a sigh with our names on it. We were looking for our names. Fortunately my daughter-in-law realized the man we wanted had a Right Travel sign.

Thank you for making all the right travel arrangements. Your name is well suited to your efforts.  


Sincerely, Patricia

We had a fantastic trip. The guide was very informative, loved all the tours. The safari was exciting, boat ride was boring, it was fun riding the metro.

Thank you for a cute welcome home card. My trip to Dubai (with 2-day extension) was great. And even though my flight to Moscow was delayed for 2 hours, I was able to make a connection and arrive in Dubai on time! Everything was well organized, the tour guide was excellent, and Mr. Sathesh, our Tour Manager, tried to accommodate my every single need including altering the pick up time on my way to the airport. Everyone at the hotel was extremely polite and helpful! The weather was my only disappointment - it was only about 60F and even the local people complained it was too cold. I guess I have to go back there in July to get some tan ;-)
Thank you very much for your help to make this trip so memorable.
 
Warm regards,

Izabela

Thank you for appreciating my opinion about the service of your company. You did a great service and we enjoy private car and guides all the time, going around Dubai , Aby Dhabi and desert trip. We saw many things, but maybe we need more days for the interior of towers and museums.

The hotel, that you have chosen for us was clean, well managed and in perfect position for short term tourist like us. We fell secure there, and enjoy the service. The price of the trip that you organized for us was manageable and we look forward to do more trips with you. Client

Sincerely,
