What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Palm Jumeirah, Dubai United Arab Emirates

You will be picked from your hotel or selected location by our representative in an air-conditioned vehicle. First stop will be made at the Palm Jumeirah, a majestic artificial island, built mimicking the shape of a palm tree. You can also witness the opulent Atlantis Hotel while glancing through the sand wonderment stretching in front of you. Also, click pictures in the foreground of the luxurious hotel, from where you can also catch a glimpse of the Dubai Marina.

Stop At: Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah Road, Dubai United Arab Emirates

Then we will head to the Souk Madinat Jumeirah, to discover the cultural richness of this Emirati city. Here the ancient Emirati market setting is recreated where visitors can enjoy an authentic Middle Eastern shopping experience. A stroll through the lovely streets of Madinat Jumeirah will take you back in time. From the souk, you can see splendid Burj Al Arab - a towering hotel standing on an artificial island which is a delightful sight to experience.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: The Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque And Centre, 119 6d Street, Dubai 25444 United Arab Emirates

Hereafter, we will head to the next stop- the famed Blue Mosque of Dubai. The mosque, which is also Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque, is adorned with intricate architecture, inspired by the Ottoman and Andalusian styles. The interiors of the grand mosque feature 21 domes, 124 stained glass windows, and wonderful chandeliers.

With the Blue Mosque exploration, your modern Dubai city sightseeing will come to an end.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Bur Dubai Abra Dock, Southern side of Dubai Creek, Dubai 75157 United Arab Emirates

We will then move on to the old part of the city, where you can understand and appreciate the origin and evolution of this Emirati settlement into a sprawling metropolis. Ride on a water taxi – an age-old transportation system, to reach the gold and spice souks.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Dubai Gold Souk, 54 Al Khor St Deira, near Gold Center Building, Dubai 75157 United Arab Emirates

There, you can browse some authentic Emirati products, aromatic spices, and gold jewelry. Once you are done exploring and shopping at the souks, you will be dropped off at your hotel or selected location.
