Experience the historical sites and vibrant cosmopolitan life of Dubai on this comprehensive sightseeing tour of the city. See Dubai's famous landmarks such as the sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab hotel and beautiful Jumeirah Mosque, and learn interesting details about each attraction from a local guide. Take in views of the city's most picturesque palaces and residential areas, and venture into Bastakiya, Dubai's inspiring old quarter. Cross Dubai Creek by 'abra' (water taxi) and visit the Spice Souq. The tour also includes free time to shop in the glistening Deira Gold Souq!

Highlights

  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
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 fort’s cannons, turrets and fortified walls. Then, cross Dubai's central waterway, Dubai Creek, in a traditional abra; it’s 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.

Tour was better than expected. Pick up was prompt from the hotel. The bus was comfortable. Sights and transport included were better than expected. The museum was probably our biggest surprise. it did not look big from the outside but once inside we were so surprised by the excellent displays underground providing a glimpse of old life in Dubai.
