Explore Dubai's past and present impressive landmarks on a guided tour by bus. Travel in comfort in an air-conditioned vehicle from point to point, learning about the rich culture Dubai has to offer from your guide. Stop to walk around or through these highlights, and enjoy a ride across Dubai Creek in a traditional abra boat.

Get picked up from your hotel or desired location in an air-conditioned vehicle. Stop by The Pointe in Palm Jumeirah to admire the charm of Atlantis, The Palm Hotel, before the Burj Al Arab photo stop from the beachside. Proceed to the Blue Mosque, which was inspired by the Ottoman and Andalusian styles of architecture, with intricate interiors decorated with beautiful chandeliers and a library that is home to almost 40,000 religious books. Next, explore Old Dubai and the Creekside, where it all began. Hop on the Abra water taxi, the city's oldest mode of transportation, to cross the Creek. Visit the Gold Souk, renowned for its wide collection of gold jewelry, while the Spice Souk brims with aromatic spices, herbs, nuts, oil, saffron and so on. Then visit Al Khayma Heritage House in Al Fahidi Historical District, where you'll be treated to traditional Emirati hospitality by being served tea/coffee. While touring the home, learn more about the UAE's history, which started in the desert with tents now reaching Mars. Admire the old Emirati bedroom's antiques and architectural development of the actual house, from the tent replica at the restaurant to Arish palm front houses, and finally to the megastructures. At the end of the tour, stay on your own at the souk or be transferred back to your hotel or selected location.

we had a wonderful guide and driver, learned a lot about the architecture, history and traditions of Dubai. the trip to the mosque brought us interesting knowledge about the muslim religion. we learned how to bargain at the souk markets. i would book the tour again if i come back

We had a guide all to ourselves. The Top !! The explanations given to the various points were interesting. The mosque is beautiful, but a little disappointed with its size. We would have preferred to see the Grand Mosque of Dubai, but the explanations provided were very good. Reaching the souks via the local taxi boat was painful. It took a lot of walking to get to the starting point of the boats. THE time spent in the gold souk is very short. Plan a 2nd visit on your own if you want to stroll through the alleys of this souk. The "typical" house which also serves as a restaurant is a good place to eat at the end of your visit at reasonable prices. Thanks to our Tunisian guide

The guide Syed was very friendly and punctual. The city tour accompanied by a person who lives in the area and knows the culture made a lot of difference. We visited the main points of Dubai. At the Spice Souk (market) it would have been better if tourists could roam freely for a while, rather than being driven to a specific shop. The lunch included in the package was worth it for the atmosphere and the dishes, but the customer who had not opted for the "all inclusive" option could choose from the à la carte menu.
