Buckle up for a unique high octane experience with some great sightseeing included.

We will pick you up from your hotel and take you to the Dubai Creek. While we wait to board our private seaplane, we will have a coffee and maybe a croissant at the stunning Park Hyatt Dubai.


Once aboard our private seaplane (max 9 pax) we will take off from the Dubai Creek over the city of Dubai, past the Burj Khalifa, towards the Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah and ultra famous Jumeirah Beach. On our 40 minute trip to Dubai, we will have plenty of photo opportunities to see some the magnificent palaces and beaches that just can't be seen from the ground.

We will come into to land at Yas Marina, home to the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 race. Pulling up to the pier, a luxury vehicle will be waiting to take us to the Yas Marina Circuit where we will have an experience the closest any of us may come to actually driving a Formula 1 race car - the Formula Yas 3000.


Before getting into the driver’s seat of the high performance vehicle, you’ll be suited up in full race gear and helmet, followed by a technical briefing from your racing coach. Next, you will take familiarization laps around the circuit in a Renault vehicle.

During these slow laps, your coach will explain the racing line and how to approach each corner. At this point you should be ready for the real action. You will be taken back to the pits, where you’ll be further briefed on your car before being tightly strapped into the Yas 3000 race car.

First your instructor will lead the way on pace laps along the circuit. With wings and slick tyres, this car gives razor-sharp responses. Remember to relax behind the wheel, as even the slightest driver input delivers a noticeable direction change. Over the course of your driving session, the challenge is to improve your racing technique. At the end of your session your instructor will provide you with some detailed feedback and discuss how you might improve your technique.


Driving fast cars creates hunger so now we head off for a spectacular buffet lunch at the amazing Emirates Palace Hotel


Time to put the cherry on the cake, and we will know head to Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque for a private tour of this amazing building with its unique architecture and spectacular decoration


In just 90 minutes we will back in Dubai by road and you will now see everything from a different perspective !

Seeing Dubai.

Desert Gate did an excellent job of delivering an incredible introduction to Dubai for us as first time visitors. The Dubai Cultural Tour, the Desert Safari, and the early morning hot air balloon ride all exceeded our expectations.

Tour of all 7 Emirates

By: Steve Guinn

Fantastic all the way around. Our guide, Tatiana, was one of the best we've ever had. Great attitude and knowledge of the country. She and driver had never toured all 7 Emirates in the same day...14 hours, so it was quite an accomplishment, in my view, all the way around....Tatiana/Driver, Desert Gate, Catherine Conn and us for trying to do it and accomplishing it. What an impressive Tatiana had a lot to work with. Would highly recommend this Operator, tour guide, driver, travel planner, etc.
