Overview
Discover the different faces of glittering Dubai on a day trip from Abu Dhabi. Travel to the neighboring emirate by air-conditioned vehicle and explore its fascinating history, culture and spectacular 21st-century architecture, all in one go. Ogle top Dubai attractions such as the astonishing Burj Khalifa, Burj Al-Arab and the Palm Jumeirah, ride an ‘abra’ water taxi across Dubai Creek, and visit Dubai Museum to uncover the city’s past. Plus, peruse the gleaming shops of the Gold Souk, roam the aromatic Spice Souk, and enjoy free time for lunch at glitzy Dubai Mall.
Highlights
  • Experience Dubai’s highlights in a day from Abu Dhabi
  • See the Burj Khalifa, the Palm, and Burj Al Arab with guided commentary
  • Fully rounded tour: Visit Dubai Museum and shop at Dubai Mall and souks
  • Coach travel, entry fees, and hotel pickup and drop-off included
What to Expect
Depart your central Abu Dhabi hotel by air-conditioned coach and journey through the desert to Dubai. After roughly 90 minutes, arrive and head to Dubai's palm-tree-shaped island of Palm Jumeirah. Take in the island’s huge Atlantis hotel before traveling to Jumeirah Beach for stunning views of the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel. Then, stop to marvel at the Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest tower at 2,716 feet (828 meters), before visiting Dubai Mall, the vast shopping center set below it. Enjoy free time for shopping and lunch (own expense) here before exploring Dubai Museum and crossing Dubai Creek on a public abra (wooden boat) to delve into Deira’s souks. Get bartering tips from your guide at the Gold Souk and wander through the Spice Souk, passing stalls piled with spices, herbs, sweets, and nuts. Your day concludes with a drop-off at your Abu Dhabi hotel.

We had a great day in Dubai. And thanks to our driver, Abdul Rasheed, we got all the things we wanted in one day. We could never have done that on our own.

There is no chance you can see all Dubai in one day, but our guide Shabeer managed to get us around to all of the important places in Dubai. Also was he ready to answer any question thrown at him. Only thing I could have wished for, is more time in the mall, since 2 hours simply

Overall, it was an average trip. 1 day is just not enough to see Dubai. You basically have time to stand in few popular spots to take pictures, visit a mall, eat lunch and visit Dubai. I feel that it would have been better to go on your own and be able to stay late and check

Response from EmiratesTour, Manager at Dubai Sightseeing Day Trip from Abu Dhabi
Responded 11 Dec 2019
Emirates Tours & Safari LLC thank you for your time in sending us your review. It is unfortunate that you were not fully satisfied with our regular / traditional Dubai city tour and missing out on the night activities you could have seen in Dubai. We do actually have a Modern Dubai tour which is an entirely different program which includes the visit at the top of Burj Khalifa and watching the Dubai Fountain show as well. We hope to have you again on our tour on your next visit and have a chance to give you a more enjoyable experience.
