Educational School Tours – Field Trip

 

Educational Tours for Schools and Colleges

Our Educational Tours are designed to instill a sense of curiosity among children for the local history and culture of the UAE. We bring over a decade worth of experience in organizing fun and interactive tours for students of all ages around Europe and America and now in the Middle East. Our student travel advisers ensure that elements of the curriculum are incorporated into the tour. This allows students to experience firsthand, what they have learnt in class.

Tour Planning & Content

We can design a tour as per the requirements of the curriculum and interests of the students. From Old Dubai, Pearl Diving and Trade, to Bedouin Life and to the major developments in Dubai history, our tours are famous for the depth of knowledge they delve into.  

Activities:

Scavenger Hunt: Student groups spot the items asked to them and return with the flags placed at the spot. The winning group members are given prizes.

Post Card Writing Activity: After the visit to the Dubai Museum, we have a short activity at the foyer of the museum, where the students write a post card to their loved ones telling them about their learning from the field trip.

Safety:

Our guides are rigorously trained to be student friendly. They are also trained to ensure student safety during our trips. Our operations team are always available during a tour and keep track of the tour till it’s over.

Old Dubai Prism Tour

This is a 3-hour walking tour which takes place in the historic Al Fahidi & Bastakiya region of Old Dubai.

In this tour we focus on introducing students to Dubai’s past and how its economy was back in the 1900’s. We talk about the Bedouin life and take them through the Coffee Museum, explaining the importance of coffee in UAE and coffee origin. We shed light on the importance of the Bastakiya region and what role it played in Dubai’s Development. Before we walk to the next destination, the students play a scavenger hunt contest.

We then head on to the Dubai Museum to delve into the early days of the City of Dubai and how pearl diving and fisheries were its main sources of revenue. We have a short snack break and a post card writing activity thereafter.

The students then have a fun Abra ride and head to the Spice Souk to learn about the different spices used in UAE and their origin.
