Itinerary

Driving in the UAE

Friday 6th December | London Heathrow to Dubai | Flight In
This tour of a lifetime begins at London Heathrow where you will meet your Classic Grand Touring tour manager who will accompany you throughout the trip. We will board the 09:10hrs Emirates flight from London Heathrow scheduled to arrive at Dubai Airport at 20:00hrs.
Upon arrival, we will be met by our tour hosts who will take us to the Taj Dubai Hotel.

Once checked in at the hotel, we will meet for dinner in the hotel restaurant where you will be given an introduction to your chosen car and what to expect over the next few days. 

Saturday 7th December | The Driving Begins
This morning, we will meet for breakfast around 09:00hrs. Once we have enjoyed our first breakfast in Dubai we will have an introduction to the incredible cars we will be driving. Buckle up as we begin our thrilling drive with plenty sure to get the heart racing! 

Once we're ready, it is time to start the cars and begin our dive via the Nazwa Desert to Sharjah. We will venture deep into the deserts of Sharjah and uncover the secrets of the region's ancient Bedouin culture during an archaeological tour of the area. The visitor attraction in the Empire of Sharjah blends history, nature and culture with exceptional quality and warm hospitality to create a unique leisure experience in a spectacular natural setting. Lunch at arch

Our first night of the tour will be spent at the highly rated and reviewed, Hatta Fort Hotel. The hotel is nestled amidst the Hajar mountain range, just a few kilometers from the Omani border. The hotel is also surrounded by two phenomenal mountain driving routes that you will experience during your stay. 

Sunday 8th December | Hatta Fort Hotel to Cove Rotana Resort (2 nights) | 115 miles
After breakfast and a driver’s briefing, we will depart the hotel around 09:00hrs and head towards one of the best hotels in the Nothern Emirates. The Cove Rotana Resort is located on an idyllic water inlet o the Ras Al Khaimah coastline overlooking the Arabian Gulf with 600m of pristine beach. 

En route to Cove Rotana, our base for the next 2 nights, we will make a pit stop in the quintessential and rather charming mountain of Masafi, famous for its local spirit, as much as it natural spring and daily market. Following our stop, we continue our journey through Furjeirah on the Al Taween roads before arriving at the hotel.

Monday 9th December | Drive to Jebel Jais | 60 Miles
Having enjoyed a relaxed morning, we depart the hotel and head to Jebel Jais. This road could be described as a race track draped over a mountain. Its silky-smooth straights link together over 130 unique turns, including chicanes, hairpins and fast open bends all of which are surrounded by mountain walls which echo engine and exhaust notes for a total of 36 exhilarating kilometres.

The Jebel Jais mountain is not only the highest peak in Ras Al Khaimah but in the entire UAE. The views from the top are simply staggering and we will enjoy a picnic lunch at the top overlooking this stunning road. 

Following lunch, you are free to continue enjoying your car on this amazing road as many time as you want before heading back down the Cove Rotana hotel. 


Tuesday 10th December | Cove Rotana Resort to Dubai | 130 Miles
Today we plan to depart the hotel after breakfast at around 09:00hrs. Having left the hotel, we drive some more brilliant roads on our way back to Dubai. Upon arrival, we will stop at the Tomini Classic Car Collection where we will enjoy a private tour of one of the best collections in the Middle East boasting over 60 vehicles. 

Our final destination on the tour is the fabulous Ritz Carlton Hotel which overlooks both Burj Khalifa and the DIFC. This is one of the best-located hotels in Dubai making it the perfect final stop for the tour.
