Tipping Info

If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.


This tour of Dubai is a bit special in that it takes you where no other tours do – right into the middle of Dubai’s unique nightlife scene. We want to let you in on a little local secret – it might not seem so, but there’s plenty to do when the sun sets. Night-time is when Dubai comes alive for those who want to enjoy the cool breeze of the night.
This isn’t your typical European pub crawl – we’re not looking to get drunk (besides, alcohol is very restricted here in Dubai!). What we’re showing you are the best places in Dubai to check out in the evenings – you’ll see some amazing buildings come to life with beautiful lights, learn about expat life, and see the city from an insider’s perspective. It’s a truly unique, local experience, and we recommend doing this Dubai tour early on in your trip so you can pick up pointers for the rest of your time here!
Depending on the day of the week, we’re going to take you to the best places available. Regardless, you’re going to have a fabulous time, because in Dubai, the options for a Dubai nightlife tour are unlimited, from jazz nights to Irish pubs to Arabic discos – you really can find everything. Grab your dancing shoes and your most glamorous outfit to experience just what Dubai’s nightlife has to offer.
We’ll start your evening tour in Dubai with a great view of the fountain show, cocktail in hand. We’ll have a little chat, get to know everyone, and give you the lowdown on where we’re heading for the rest of the evening.
Following local traditions, the next stop will be a shisha bar, where you can chill with locals. Not only is shisha the trendy thing to do and try, it’s a traditional Dubai practice as well. Even if you don’t like shisha, the experience itself is a cool one to be part of.
As we continue, we’ll admire the lights of the world famous Burj Khalifa, then head to another Dubai nightlife spot to listen to the rhythm of the music and check out local celebrities (make sure you’re dressed to impress!). This place is the ultimate.
At the end of it all, we’ll finish the evening under the stars at our favourite spot on the beach, where you can stay and dance the night away (should you wish!).
