Abu Dhabi National Hotels’ tourism division, Sunshine Tours, has expanded its portfolio of UAE tours and expeditions under its Arabian Experience programme.
The tours include fishing trips, a sunset dhow cruise along the Abu Dhabi Corniche, dhow trips to Abu Dhabi’s island retreats, and exciting 4X4 wadi safaris.
Ali Al Hosani, tourism division manager at Sunshine Tours, said: “This year’s tour season is up and running, and we have once again responded to customer feedback to include a range of new tours. We have also renovated our existing desert facilities and traditional houses, added three more desert traditional houses, and upgraded the bedouin heritage camp and its facilities. This is part of our dedication to offering our customers the most authentic Arabian experience.”
The new fishing expedition is an excellent opportunity to view miles of shimmering blue sea, marine life and coastline. Taking groups of up to six people, the trip includes all the fishing equipment needed as well as refreshments to quench the thirst generated by a relaxing day out in the sun. Fishing trips are priced at Dh600 ($163) per person for the first two hours, and Dh300 per person for each additional hour.
The Sunset Dhow cruise takes passengers along the Corniche, and it is a great chance to view Abu Dhabi’s fantastic waterfront with its public parks, fountains, and remarkable skyscrapers. The trip costs Dh60 per person for a minimum of 10 people; dinner can also be included for Dh165 per person. The exciting 4X4 wadi safari takes visitors to Al Ain’s wonderful oasis to admire unique rock formations, gorges and streams. Visitors can dive into the cool waters of the oasis and enjoy a picnic lunch en route. The wadi safari is priced at Dh385 per person.
