Dubai City Tour with dancing fountains - Afternoon Dubai sightseeing tour

    What to Expect
    After pickup from your Sharjah or Dubai hotel, set off by air-conditioned vehicle to discover Dubai.

    Follow Dubai Creek to the Al Fahidi heritage quarter, where Persian merchants settled during the 1800s. See the wind towers and courtyards, and chart Dubai’s history at Dubai Museum, housed in 18th-century Al Fahidi fort.

    Ride an abra boat—a traditional, pre-oil boom mode of transport in Dubai—across the creek to Deira. Stroll around the Gold Souk and Spice Souk, and hone your haggling skills with help from your guide.

    Next, delve into the newer, better-known Dubai: the city of skyscrapers and futuristic architecture. See the royal Zabeel Palace and mini-Manhattan skyscrapers along the Sheikh Zayed Road, and pass Ski Dubai at the Emirates Mall before driving around Palm Jumeirah.

    Take photos by the island’s Atlantis The Palm hotel and nearby Burj Al Arab, and visit the Blue Mosque to admire its Ottoman-inspired architecture. Then, explore downtown Dubai, admiring Dubai Mall and the spectacular Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest tower.

    Finish by enjoying a Dubai Fountain sound-and-light show, watching as the multi-colored jets dance to dramatic music. Your tour ends back at the original start point.
