Dubai City Tour

The Dubai City Tour is a great introduction to the city and highlights both old and modern Dubai, from the towering skyscrapers to the old merchant houses. Also see historic Dubai Creek and the bustling souks where you can buy anything from Jewellery to Spices and everything in between.

Take a tour of Dubai, a city of contradictions and Wonders. On this fascinating city tour, you will see the old and the new, the ancient and the modern, the exotic and the majestic.

The tour begins with some of the tallest buildings in the Middle East. Enjoy a panoramic photo shoot of the iconic Burj Al Arab, the world’s tallest hotel set on its own island. Be awed by the beauty of the Jumeirah Mosque and the impressive Emirates Tower.

After a short break by Dubai Creek, we arrive at the oldest part of the city, Bastakia where old wind-towered houses of wealthy merchants are still to be seen.

Visit the fascinating Dubai Museum in the Al Fahidi Fort, which has been there almost for two centuries defending the settlers of early days and provides a real insight into the pre-oil days.

Explore the textiles market and take a closer look at the wind towers as you wind your way back to the creek where you board an ‘Abra’, a traditional wooden water taxi that will take us across the Creek to the area of spice and gold souks.

For the final part of the Dubai City Tour, walk through the bustling alleys of these souks being amazed by mystical aromas of numerous spices and the breath-taking amount of dazzling jewellery that varies from traditional to the latest designs at amazingly affordable prices.
