Full description

Experience Dubai, old and new, on a comprehensive half-day city tour, and visit the traditional Gold Souk, before going to the top of the world’s tallest building. Following a pick-up from your hotel, transfer to Dubai Creek on the way to the heritage area of Bastakiya. See the famous wind-tower houses in the city’s first neighborhood. Go to Dubai Museum at the 225-year-old Al Fahidi Fort, and learn about Arabic arts, history, culture and lifestyle. Take a traditional water taxi from Bur Dubai to Deira Dubai, and stroll through the Spice Market and Gold Market. Stop to take a photo of the Jumeirah Mosque and the sail-like façade of the grand Burj Al Arab Hotel.

Enjoy some free time for a tea or coffee at Madinat Jumeirah Souk, an authentic recreation of an ancient Middle Eastern marketplace. Next, visit the manmade Palm Jumeirah Island and stop in front of the Atlantis Hotel. Marvel at the world-class accommodation, villas, and residential apartments of the crescent-shaped island, and see the site of Dubai Aquarium. Experience the beauty of Dubai’s skyscrapers from the Dubai Marina Walk, and admire the yachts of millionaires alongside traditional dhows. Drive along Sheikh Zayed Road, between yet more imposing skyscrapers, and head to Dubai Mall for a view of the Burj Khalifa. Enter the world’s tallest building to ride the fastest elevator on the planet. Go to the 124th-floor observation deck for panoramic city views.

Take free time in Dubai Mall to watch the fountain dancing in sync with classical, Arabic, and world music, or to indulge in some fine dining before your drop-off in the Dubai Mall.

Our guide Mahmood was on time, gave us a nice tour, showing us both the new and old part of Dubai. He accompanied us to the main places, accompanying us, guiding us and leaving us the right times. Recommended the tour and also our guide. If you have just a few days, ideal to get an idea of this city.

Our fantastic guide Amira was incredibly nice and attentive. She talked about the city and the culture in a very interesting way, she adjusted the pace of sightseeing tu us and never rushed us, although we exceeded the time of the trip. Transportation went smoothly and comfortably. We avoided all the crowds. Highly recommended!

very happy with this guided tour. There was one coordinator that met me at the airport, one guide, and one driver. Felt very safe, got loads of information and got to see the "whole" of Dubai in on day. The prepaid Burj Khalifa tickets made also the experience here extremely smooth.
