Full description

Discover the spectacular sights of Dubai, and learn how it developed from a small fishing village on Dubai Creek to the lively metropolis of today. Visit the old district of Bastakyia, and enter Dubai Museum in the ancient fortress of Al-Fahidi. Ride a water taxi across Dubai Creek and enjoy superb views of the city en route to Deira. Be enchanted by the exotic spices on sale in the famous Spice Souk. Then, ponder whether to buy any of the glittering souvenirs in the Gold Souk. Stop to take photos of the Jumeirah Grand Mosque, built in the medieval Fatimid tradition. Take a photo of the iconic Burj Al Arab, then, if the option is selected, you can go to the Burj Khalifa for an optional lunch around the musical fountains.

Head to Dubai Mall, where more than 1,200 stores and a host of world-class designers can be found. Continue to Palm Islands to see the famous Atlantis Hotel, located at the crescent of Palm Jumeirah. Then take a stroll past the luxury yachts of Dubai Marina.

Drive through the ultra-modern Jumeirah Lake Towers complex en route to the Barsha area with its famous Emirates Mall and permanent skiing facility.

Nice tour of the most famous attractions. We had also a Dub night tour with the same company but they left us away from our hotel and we had to go all the back to the hotel to catch the night tour. We almost missed it. For travelers that take both tours on the same day, the company should arrange taking and dropping from the same place.

Great day out! The only thing I would say is at times it felt quite rushed and we didn’t have enough time at places. The tour also started 30 minutes late. The lunch needed to have more options and again was rushed to get back to the coach. However overall a lovely day and grateful to have these experiences to remember.

Efficient pick-up from our hotel. Transferred to comfortable air-con tour bus with very well-spoken English tour guide Ritvi . Tour bus also had running commentary synchronized with the tour route. We enjoyed every detail listed on the tour and were mesmerized all day with everything, The Burj Al Arab, the Dubai Creek, The Burj Khalifa, the ride on the Abra , the Gold Souks the Spice Souks, the Palm Islands and the Atlantis Palm. Value for money tour with caring tour guide. This tour took a whole weight of our shoulders as we simply had to buy the tour to spend the whole day in Dubai. Tour was worth every dime that we spent. Do not hesistate to buy this tour. Dropped off at Dubai Mall just in time to see the DANCING FOUNTAINS at night. Super efficient Taxi system at the Dubai Mall at Taxi area to transport guests back to their hotel at YOUR OWN COST. So don't forget to carry enough cash to buy your souveniers and pay for your taxi fare back to your hotel.
