UAE Bird Guiding

As of January 2022 we are struggling with availability of birdguides.

If you find yourself in Dubai, you can either rent a taxi for a half day or full day from
Dubai Taxi, by ordering 24 hours in advance.
In 2019 the taxi rates are AED 900 for 6 hours and AED 1,800 for 12 hours.
Be prepared with instructions to the taxi driver, as few of the birding sites are known to them.

 

Guiding Rates

General rate is AED 150 pr hour (US $ 40). This includes the guide in a four-wheel drive vehicle.

Half day guiding, 6 hours: AED  800/- (US $ 220)
This is for 1-3 persons, no additional cost if you are one, two or three persons in the car.

Full day guiding, 12 hours: AED 1.600/- (US $ 435)

This is for 1-3 persons, no additional cost if you are one, two or three persons in the car.
