Itinerary

Sunday 4th November

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 the team at Puredrive who will collect us and take us to Meydan Hotel. Once checked in at the hotel, we will meet for dinner in the hotel restaurant where you will be briefed on what to expect over the next few days. 

Monday 5th November

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 cars we will be driving and get the formalities out of the way. At 11:00hrs, it is time to start the cars and head to our first experience, the 1950's Land Rover Safari.

Here we will be guided by Arabian desert safari experts, experiencing the landscape and wildlife of a private desert conservation reserve in Dubai. We will enjoy all this from the seat of an immaculate 1950's Land Rover. After the safari, we will enjoy a luxury Bedouin style picnic and experience the thrill and fascination of a traditional Falconry. 

Our first night of the tour will be spent at the highly rated and reviewed, Telal Resort in Al Ain. This particular resort won the 2017 World Luxury Hotel Awards and is where we will dine for dinner this evening. 

Tuesday 6th November

After breakfast and a drivers briefing, we will depart the hotel around 09:00hrs and head towards the famous Jebel Hafeet - widely considered to be one of the best driving roads in the world. The road is a great introduction to mountain driving in the UAE, with a blend of both fast open and technical sections to master. We will meet at the bottom before spending the morning indulging in this incredible driving experience. 

Having enjoyed the road, we will head to Al Ain Rotana for lunch before heading to the Al Ain Classic Car Museum. This museum was established in 2009 by Captain Rashid Mohammad Al Tamimi - a passionate petrolhead and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Classic Car Club. The museum aims to preserve the automotive relics of the UAE, from the first vehicles that arrived on these shores. 

Our final destination for today is the Ayla Grand Hotel. This is the latest high end 5 start property of Ayla Hotels & Resorts in Al Ain and where we will dine for dinner this evening. 

Wednesday 7th November

This morning we will depart the hotel around 09:00hrs and head for the Nazwa desert route. The route will take us to our lunch stop, the Mleiha Archeological Center. Here we will embark on a journey back through time and experience the history of traditional Emirati life. 

Having enjoyed the tour and a great lunch, we depart an drive the Fili, Wadi Showka and Munai routes. These routes are a major step up from Jebel Hafeet in terms of technicality with a thrilling mixture of tight bends, surface changes and negative and positive G! These routes will take us to the Hatta Fort Hotel where we will enjoy some light refreshments. An hour later will jump back in the cars and drive the Munai route in reverse and The Pass before heading back to the Hatta Fort Hotel for some well deserved free time. 

The Hatta Fort Hotel is nestled amidst the Hajar mountain range and is without a doubt the most tranquil part of the tour. This evening we will enjoy dinner in the hotel restaurant. 

Thursday 8th November 

Once again, we plan to depart the hotel after breakfast at around 09:00hrs. We will drive The Pass in reverse as well as the Shj-Klba and Masafi routes before arriving at the Fairmont Fujeirah Beach for lunch. After a lovely lunch on the beach, we depart and drive the Ghub and Al Taween routes. 

Late afternoon we arrive t the Cove Rotana Resort and Spa with plenty of time to explore the beautiful surroundings. This spectacular resort is located on an idyllic water inlet on the Ras Al Khaimah beachfront overlooking the Arabian Gulf with 600m of pristine beach and two fantastic restaurants. Dinner will be at the hotel this evening. 

Friday 9th November

Having enjoyed a hearty breakfast, we depart the hotel and head to Jebel Jais. This road could be described as a race track draped over a mountain. It's 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 42 exhilarating kilometres. 

At the summit (the highest point in the UAE) we will enjoy a Fortnum & Mason picnic lunch, Bedouin style. Surrounded by stunning views of Ras Al Khaimah, we will be tended to by private waiters before firing up the cars again and attacking the mountain once more! 

Following lunch, we will head to the Waldorf Astoria in Ras Al Khaimah, check in and enjoy dinner in the hotel restaurant this evening. 

Saturday 10th November

After breakfast, we depart and drive Downtown Boulevard and Palm Jumeirah before arriving at One & Only the Palm for lunch. After a morning cruising Dubai in our cars, we head to Tomini Private Classic Car Collection for an exclusive tour. This is one of the best collections in the Middle East boasting over 60 vehicles, some with less than 100km on the clock. This is a true enthusiasts dream and a perfect ending to the tour. 

We hand the cars back at Tomini and will be collected by transfer vehicle to head straight back to Dubai airport to catch the 16:05hrs Emirates flight back to London Heathrow arriving at 20:00hrs local time. 

Alternatively, you are welcome to extend your stay and enjoy another night in Dubai at the Meydan Hotel. Alternative flights can also be arranged for those wishing to extend their stay.
