Tailoring Travel Together – Dubai

Travel with friends, extended family and grandparents… Small group travel is something so many are dreaming of right now. May 2020 will be focusing on ideas for this type of travel, ideal destinations and gorgeous accommodations!

Tailoring Travel Together… Focus on Dubai

There’s more to Dubai than you might think. It really has something for all ages.
In recent years, Dubai has won over millions of travellers with its sunshine, accessibility and the sheer plethora of things to do, see, taste and experience. It’s impossible not to find something that appeals.
This is why I love it as a small group destination.
However varied the tastes of your travelling group, you can each divide and conquer, and come together to compare notes at the end of the day over an amazing meal.

What could we do?
