Afternoon Tour Exploring the City of Dubai

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
In search of a bonafide tour of Dubai? There is nothing better than Full Day Explore City Tour that shares insider stories and covers all the fascinating, historical and modern attractions of Dubai.
  • Cover Dubai’s highlights with ease in one afternoon
  • Travel to the top sights in comfort and learn about them via a guide
  • Explore old Bastakiya and see the Palm, Burj Khalifa, and other landmarks
  • Afternoon departure ideal for filling a day after a morning activity
What to Expect
Depart your central Dubai hotel by air-conditioned vehicle and head into old Dubai as your guide charts the city’s history and culture. Stop first at Al Bastakiya (Al Fahidi), Dubai’s oldest quarter, and stroll around its lanes to see its wind tower houses. Learn how the houses were built by Persian traders in the late 1800s, and dip into Bastakiya’s art galleries and museums. Delve into nearby souks and bazaars, and cruise through the swish Jumeirah neighborhood, passing its deluxe villas and Jumeirah Mosque. Snap photos of the Burj Al Arab from Jumeirah Beach, and take in the palm-tree-shaped Palm Jumeirah before a drive around Dubai Marina and the Mall of the Emirates. Finally, keep your camera ready for a panoramic tour of futuristic Downtown Dubai. Enjoy photo ops by the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall, and Dubai Fountain here before your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
