Overview
Sightseeing in Dubai can be challenging, with different transport systems and often high temperatures to negotiate. Check off the sites smoothly and comfortably on this half-day tour. View must-sees, such as the Burj Al Arab and Al Bastakiya, cross Dubai Creek by abra boat, and scour the Spice Souk and Gold Souk, all while uncovering the city’s history. A choice of time slots and hotel transfers add extra convenience.
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure and leave your central Dubai hotel by air-conditioned vehicle. As you travel, hear interesting snippets on Dubai’s history and culture from your guide.

Hop out at Jumeirah Beach for photos of the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab and drive by the upscale villas and palatial hotels of the Jumeirah neighborhood.

Head into Old Dubai and take in Al Bastakiya (Al Fahidi), home to restored mudbrick courtyards and wind tower houses, and learn how they were originally built by Persian traders in the late 1800s. Admire Al Fahidi Fort, Dubai’s oldest building and home to Dubai Museum.

Cross Dubai Creek aboard an abra (traditional boat) and take a guided stroll around the spice, sweet, and herb stalls of Deira’s aromatic Spice Souk. Then, continue to the Gold Souk for free time to shop at the gold, silver, and jewelry stores.

Your tour concludes with a hotel drop-off.
