What to expect

Start your half-day city tour with hotel pick-up service in an air-conditioned vehicle that will take you to the impressive beach-side Burj Al Arab hotel. This luxury sail-shaped hotel is one of Dubai’s signature landmarks, situated in the affluent coastal area of Jumeirah.

The tour will begin with a scenic drive along the breath-taking Jumeriah shoreline and towards the Grand Mosque of Jumeirah where you can marvel at the stunning beauty of the mosque’s Fatamid-style architecture. Next, the tour bus will head towards Bur Dubai where you will instantly notice a stark contrast between the upscale residential area of Jumeriah and the olden city, offering its traditional charms. You will drive by the vibrant neighbourhood of Al Bastikiya- home for the historical Al- Fahidi fort before visiting the Dubai Museum (ticket included). The Dubai Museum gives an opportunity to get rich, full, and integral facts of the very old history of Dubai and its culture. The museum holds various monuments including rare antiques such as pottery, weapons, tombs and ancient local artifacts.

The next part of this tour will bring you to the traditional Deira. Here, you can board on an Abra water taxi, where you can enjoy taking snapshots of spectacular panoramic views of the city. This traditional mode of transportation is popular due to its quick way to access the areas surrounding Deira Creek.

Finally, end your tour browsing through the colourful textile markets and the enchanting Spice and Gold Souk. Wander through numerous spice and accessories’ stalls and passages that fill the air with exotic sounds and aromatic smells, before being dropped off back to your hotel.
