5 Tour Agencies for the Best Vacation Packages from Dubai

Planning for a vacation can be admittedly stressful with all the documents and itineraries you have to prepare. 

If you don’t have a knack for it, don’t worry, because there are a lot of travel agencies that can help you find the best vacation packages from Dubai to any destination you can think of. 

In this article, we listed our picks of travel agencies and answered some questions about the cost of vacation packages. We also assessed what to consider when picking a travel agency for your vacation. 

How much do vacation packages in Dubai usually cost? 

There’s no set price for vacation packages because it will depend on the travel agency you choose, your planned location, the length of your tour, activities, among other things. 

Still, to give you an overview, the probable cost can range from 350 AED-3000 AED for a tour package that will last for a few days. 

This is just a guide, however, as the price for the tour will really depend on the travel agency you pick and the promos they have. So, make sure to look into that first before deciding on a tour package.

3. AFFORDABILITY★★★★☆ (4/5)
4. CLIENT SATISFACTION★★★★☆ (4/5)

Established in 2014, Amani Travel & Tourism may be a little younger compared to other travel agencies in this list. Still, we think they deserve a mention for their established clientele and highly effective services. 

What we like about them the most is how versatile their services are. Not only do they offer tour packages to different countries, but they also help you with visas, arrange your pickup, accommodation, transfer, and even connect you to limo services if you need them. 

They’re a one-stop shop for all your needs when you travel. In particular, a lot of their previous clients praise how fast and efficient they are in processing visas. 

So if that’s something that you need for your trip, they’re a strong choice. Based on our experience and client feedback, they’re very efficient and give frequent updates. 

Overall it was a very smooth transaction until the end because even payment can be done online, making it a very convenient experience. 

We also think they have reasonable rates. We listed down their current available tour packages along with the prices for your reference:

  • Dubai 
  • India
  • USA
  • UK
  • Europe (Switzerland)
  • Thailand 
  • Bangkok 

Their choices for destinations are a bit limited compared to their competitors, which we think is something to consider with this agency. If you’re looking for an agency with more and more varied destinations,  it might be best to look elsewhere. 

They are reachable on Whatsapp and are very responsive, which we like. They’re also pretty active on social media, so you can follow them for updates on their tours. 

Pros

  • Versatile services
  • Reasonable rates

3. AFFORDABILITY★★★☆☆ (3/5)
4. CLIENT SATISFACTION★★★★★ (5/5)

City One Tourism & Travel. L.L.C is an UAE-based travel agency with headquarters  in Dubai. We included them for their comprehensive travel programs that they offer to corporate and individual clients and their wide range of travel destinations. 

They offer tours to over 30 different locations spanning across the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. Some of the top locations are Morocco, Maldives, Russia, Philippines, and Spain. 

There are a lot of locations to choose from, so they’re great if you want a multi-destination vacation. 

Based on our experience with them, they’re a very hands-on agency. They handled everything needed with utmost efficiency, including flights, hotels, transportation throughout the stay, reservations, etc. 

They really make a trip that’s tailor-fit to your specifications, making recommendations to make the trip even better. So if you’re the type who likes customized tours, they’re a strong option for you. 

We saw that they have a certificate of excellence from Travel Advisor in 2018, and got a nomination in World Travel Awards in 2017. So they’re very well known for their quality and efficient services. 

However, their tours might make a dent in your wallet because they offer inbound and outbound tours with luxury resorts and hotels. Their rates are relatively more expensive, we think. 

So if you’re on a tight budget for your trip, it might be best to check elsewhere. 

We also like the fact that they’re very responsive and active on social media. So make sure to follow them for updates on their promos. 

Pros

  • Lots of travel destinations
  • Hands-on with services
  • Tailor-fit packages
  • Certificate of Excellence from Travel Advisor in 2018

Cons

  • Tours can get expensive
  • Closed on Sundays

Client Reviews: 

Efficient and trustworthy

I have booked to Georgia a full package from A-Z. It was a truly pleasant travel that’s hassle free. In one day, the team (Mr Nimit) has booked everything including the tickets, hotels, transport from/to airport, daily driver + sightseeings and activities, PCR tests, pre-registration for arrival, and many others. Super efficient and trustworthy. Recommended! -Rabeiah Al Seraidy

Took a leap of faith to book a holiday package with City One Tourism & Travel LLC during National day holidays. The experience was wonderful to say the least. Was a proper planned tour with no waiting period. Special thanks & appreciation to their staff Jade Mercado who is pretty efficient and responsive to any concern or queries.

Green Apple Travel & Tourism is an agency based in Dubai that specializes in visa processing and tours. Their multilingual staff are very hands-on and attentive, based on our experience. 

They speak English, Arabic, Filipino, Hindi, Russian, Urdu, and Ukrainian. So if you’re a foreigner and need accessible travel services, they’re a great option. 

They have a wide range of visa services. They can process visas for Russia, Armenia, Ukraine, USA, Schengen, Jordan, and Ireland, among others.  

So if you need help with your papers in particular, they’re very efficient with that. They also offer pick-up and delivery service for your visas, making it very convenient. 

We don’t seem to be the only ones who think so. Their previous customers also applaud their fast processing and how easy it is to work with them. 

They also have affordable tours that include flights, hotel accommodation, travel insurance, city tours, and transportation to and from the airport. They have tour packages for Ukraine, Georgia, Baku, Azerbaijan, Russia, and Armenia. 

They have a pretty limited list of travel destinations, however, So that’s something to consider with this agency. 

Still, we included them because of their customer-centric approach, attention to details, professionalism, and helpfulness. 

They’re very reachable on Whatsapp, but they’re inactive on social media. This makes it inconvenient to learn about their promos and services. 

Pros

  • Efficient with visa processing

  • Affordable tours
  • Customer-centric

Cons

  • Inconsistent operating hours
  • Inactive on social media
  • Limited travel destinations

Established in 1994, AFC Holidays have been around for quite some time. With over 5 branches available and over 245,000 happy customers, they have a strong reputation as a reliable and effective travel agency in Dubai. 

They’re a multi-awarded agency recognized for their service through the years. Their latest awards are Best Group Holiday Package Specialist for Dubai by the Mea Markets UAE Business Awards 2021 and International Travel Award’s Best Group Travel Company in UAE in 2021. 

What we like most about them is how easy it is to create a customized tour for your needs and budget. They have consultants you can coordinate with to create the perfect itinerary for your trip. 

If you prefer set tours, they also have plenty available. Check out their current available tour locations: 

  • USA
  • Italy 
  • Spain 
  • UK 
  • Turkey 
  • Russia 
  • Africa
  • Germany 
  • Greece 

However they don’t seem to offer any tours to Asia on their website. So if that’s what you’re after, it might be best to check out other agencies. 

Still, we’re amazed at the range of their tours, they have packages depending on your budget. Aside from tours, they also process visas. 

However this does not seem to be their main focus, in our opinion. They seem to really specialize in arranging  their tours. 

Based on our experience, working with them is so convenient and hassle-free. They’re very professional and friendly, it made the whole process easy. 

They’re very responsive on Whatsapp and on social media, so they’re reachable and accessible when you need them or if you have any questions. 

Pros

  • Experienced
  • Multi-awarded
  • Have customized and set tours in many locations
  • Wide range of tours available fitting different budgets

Client Reviews: 

Very responsive and assisted us from the start and end of the journey

AFC holidays have great tours to offer. I recently went on a customized tour package through AFC to Jordan assisted by Neenu (travel consultant). She was very responsive and assisted us from the start and end of the journey. The entire trip was planned perfectly including our hotels and personal travel guide during our stay in Jordan. Please look up for Neenu in AFC for assistance! -Dona Mathias

Managed to get everything done for us in such little time

Despite planning my trip to Armenia in just 3 days prior to the travel date, David was very positive about everything and very helpful. He responded to everything I was worried about and keeping in mind the peak season of vacation, he managed to get everything done for us in such little time. The hotel provided for our stay was very decent & clean and in a prime location. Good itinerary which covered 85% of the main attractions in just 3 days. Don’t have to worry about anything starting from airport transfers to PCR tests to visa applications. Everything was made so convenient for us. Loved the experience. Tour guide was very friendly, caring and jolly all the time. The group of people I travelled with was very cooperative, helping, happy and friendly. -Simona Bora

4. CLIENT SATISFACTION★★★☆☆ (3/5)

Dusk Travel and Tourism was founded in 2005, so they’ve been in the travel industry for quite some time already. Their combined level of experience, efficiency, and professionalism must be why they have garnered a good reputation as a travel agency. 

They offer tour packages and staycations in and outside the UAE. In particular, they offer tours to the following locations: 

  • Armenia 
  • Turkey 
  • Maldives 
  • Egypt 
  • Kenya
  • Kyrgyzstan 
  • Tanzania 
  • Georgia
  • Russia
  • Sri Lanka 
  • South Africa

  • Jordan 
  • Uzbekistan  

As you can see, they have a wide range of destinations for their tour packages. We also noticed that they have a good price point for their tours, so you can really pick a tour package depending on your budget. 

We like that they have their own online booking platform where you can book hotel reservations, flights, tour plans, and other services. Their platform helps you find the hotels and flights that fit your needs and budget. 

We find their platform to be intuitive and convenient to use. Aside from their tours, they can also assist with visa processing, hotel and flight booking, arranging tours, airport assistance, transfers, and even prepare a destination guide for their clients. 

Based on our experience and poll of their previous customers, they have fast and reliable service. They also have excellent customer service and are very hands-on in arranging details for the tours. 

They’re very responsive and accessible even on social media, where they post any promos they may have. 

However, since they’re a huge company, it might take time to get a hold of them. We suggest going to their physical site to inquire personally. 

Pros

  • Experienced
  • Have their own booking platform
  • Wide range of travel destinations
  • Good price points
  • Accessible

Cons

  • Closed on Saturday
  • Possible waiting time to contact them

Tips for Picking the Best Travel Agency 

Since there are so many travel agencies out there, it may be difficult to find the best one for your needs. So we gathered some tips that might help make the whole process simpler. 

  1. Do your research on what you need specifically. 

First, you have to assess and finalize your plans first. Consider the following:  

  • Where’s the desired destination?
  • How many days will you stay there? 
  • Is there a visa needed? 

Once you have a finalized set of plans, you can already consult with a travel agency to further guide you on the details of your trip. 

  1. Ask for a quotation. 

Part of the planning stage is determining your budget. So set your budget first and then browse the available travel packages on the websites of the travel agencies. 

Once you have a finalized list of travel agencies, you can ask for a final quotation so you can compare prices and find the best one that fits your budget. 

  1. Check the agency’s track record and expertise.

It’s important to look into the agency’s track record and level of experience. You can check if they have already set up successful tours in the destination of your choice. 

Traveling can be a pricey investment so make sure to get a good and experienced travel agency for your needs.  

  1. Read referrals and reviews. 

Reading reviews and getting leads and referrals can save you a lot of trouble in the long run. These can give you valuable insight on how the travel agencies are in terms of efficiency and attitude.
