Know More about this tour

After a pickup from your centrally located Dubai hotel, relax in your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle on the way to your first Dubai city stop: the striking Burj Al-Arab hotel. Located on the sands of Jumeirah beach, on an artificial island, the luxury hotel is one of the tallest in the world, standing at roughly 1,053 feet (321 meters). Stop for a photo, and then continue with your guide along the shoreline to Jumeirah, one of Dubai's upmarket residential areas.

Next, head to Bastakiya to see the contrast between the two neighborhoods. Explore the winding lanes that lead to hidden courtyards and the mud-brick homes topped by traditional wind towers, designed to catch cooling offshore breezes. Continue to old Al-Fahidi Fort, home to Dubai museum, and take in views of the forts cannons, turrets and fortified walls. Then, cross Dubai's central waterway, Dubai creek, in a traditional abra; its a must-do activity in Dubai!

On the Deira side of Dubai creek, soak up the colors and perfumes of the famous Spice Souq. Then enjoy free time to shop for souvenirs or glimmering accessories in the nearby Deira Gold Souq before returning to your hotel.

    On time pickup, the guide was explaining all. it's a tour that you can see the old town and that's worth it.

  • 24-Feb-2020

    This is a good half day tour to get your bearings around Dubai and also some history about the city. My one criticism is that the sound system on the coach wasn't very good and we couldn't always hear the commentary.

    The tour guide gave a some information about the city but it felt like all they really did was take us around to places that they are affiliated with and encourage us to by things

  • 19-Feb-2020

    We saw most sites and guide was very informative and pleasant. We liked the museum and the souks unfortunately the mosque was closed that day

  • 17-Feb-2020

    A highly recommended city tour. Covered everything listed in the package. The only disappointment was the Burj Al Arab location chosen.

  • 17-Feb-2020

    Spent half the time standing in line so you could be counted, to many people on tour, went to some places that aren't worth seeing, left the tour before the end as it was just a boring mess, would not recomend.

    Picked up on time at our hotel , rep told us a lot about the areas we visited, boat ride was very good, one problem rep struggled with 3 languages, dropped off ar hotel, worth the money,

    I wasn't too thrilled about this tour. The sightseeing was good but wish we could've had more time at the Spice Souq and Gold Souq. Couldn't really explore and buy things due to the time restriction but I'm glad we did get to see and experience the area.
