Water from the tap in Dubai is safe for drinking. However bottled water is recommended for anybody subject to stomach upsets.
Travel Insurance is highly recommended. There is little to no crime in Dubai, but the long flight and change of diet and climate may affect some. In the case of illness, accident, loss or damage to property, a comprehensive policy is a great investment.
Tailor Made Travel is unable to accept any passenger who is not covered by travel insurance so please advise us should you require cover.
Buffet breakfast is included on each day of our stay at the Grand Excelsior Hotel. In a number of our activities, a meal is also included which makes our additional expenses minimal. Meal times are ideal for group Members to get to know each other and create new friendships.

Our itinerary has been designed to allow us to see as much as possible in the shortest period of time.

In fairness to our group we request that all Members adhere to meeting and departure times. Maintaining our schedule will allow us to get the most out of all of our optional tours. Please note that all tours will be operated at a relaxed pace.
Dubai will be very warm in March with an average temperature of 30 degrees. It is recommended that for our optional tours that we wear comfortable clothing as there will be some walking required. Although the United Arab Emirates is an Islamic state, Dubai is well known for its liberal attitude towards clothing.
On the night of the Dubai World Cup we do request that each Member dress suitably for the occasion. We request that the gentlemen wear a collar and tie, a jacket is optional. The evenings in March can become quite cool so a jacket is ideal for later in the night.
