Take photos of this famous landmark, and then continue with your guide along the shoreline to Jumeirah, one of Dubai’s upmarket residential areas. See Jumeirah’s luxury hotels, its picturesque palace and the white marble dome and minarets of Jumeirah Mosque.
Your next stop is Dubai’s atmospheric old quarter, Al Bastakiya, where winding lanes lead to hidden courtyards and mud-brick homes topped by traditional wind towers, designed to catch cooling offshore breezes.
Visit Al Bastakiya’s old Al Fahidi Fort, complete with cannons, turrets and fortified walls, and home to the Dubai Museum. Then take a ride across Dubai Creek, Dubai’s central waterway, in a traditional water taxi called an abra – it’s one of Dubai’s must-do activities.
On the Deira side of the Creek, soak up the color and perfume of the spice souk, and then have free time to browse the glimmering necklaces and rings in Dubai’s legendary gold souk.

Unbelievable value. One hour transfer to Dubai with informative guide. Cover main areas around Jumeirah beach. Only site missed out was the Burj Khalifa though not hard to spot in the skyline.

The tour was great. The comfortable air conditioned car picked up at our hotel and took us to Dubai where we joined a coach. We then set off on the tour. It was really well done and we got to see all of the sights of Dubai. We stopped off at the Mall which was interesting, as was the river crossing in the traditional boat All in all it was a very good tour and I would recommend it to anyone staying in Abu Dhabi.
