Description:

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.

The tour was very informative with just the right amount of interesting facts about historical Dubai thanks to our great guide, Chamil from Sri Lanka. It is well organized tour with lots of stops. The tour organizer did a high quality service in every aspect, especially we are grateful to them as we left our camera in the bus and they brought it to us back the following morning to the hotel! This is something which we will never forget. Thank you!

We were picked up on time. The driver in that vehicle was friendly and informative. We were taken to a large coach and then our tour began.
The coach driver drove really well and kept the coach lovely and cool for us. Our guide, Dejan, was terrific. Dejan was extremely knowledgeable and kept the tour to time. A great tour for the price. Thanks to Dejan we feel we know a lot more about Dubai, UAE, it's people and cultures. Highly recommended.

A great morning, easy pace, our guide was very informative, there were 3 of us on the tour. The museum was very interesting . A great tour to get an overview of the city, customs and history. I would recomend this tour as an alternative to a full walking tour especially in the heat

Our tour guide was informative and entertaining. Part of the tour is a walking tour and even a quick ride in a boat crossing Dubai Creek. Many great photo opportunities. Hotel pick up and drop off makes the tour very convenient.

Learnt a lot. Not too pushed. Good recon to decide to go back or not to souk etc.. guide was good. Spoke two languages so German and English sort of broke the trip a bit.
Focus was on the old city.
