Full description
On this 4-hour city tour you’ll visit Dubai's old quarters as well as the city’s ultra-modern district. Take in cultural attractions, tax-free shopping, and Dubai’s futuristic architecture on a single tour. Your tour begins with a drive along Sheik Zayed Road, taking you to the city’s stunning skyscrapers. Admire the unique architecture styles and the skyline that make for a diverse urban landscape. Included with your tour is a ticket to the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, at 828 meters. Ride the fastest elevators in the world and ascend 124 floors in less than a minute. Once you have reached the top you’ll have a 360-degree panoramic view of Dubai and the surrounding area. Visit Souk Madinat, an Arabian-style shopping mall featuring many shops and restaurants. This venue is an interesting mix of the modern and the traditional, and faces the spectacular Burj Al Arab Hotel. Your tour continues to the Palm Island, where you’ll stop by the majestic Atlantis Hotel. Continue on to the Dubai Museum to experience the authentic history and culture of Dubai. As you cross Dubai Creek by abra (water taxi) you’ll see the district of Deira, part of Dubai’s original city center. The popular Gold Souk is located here and you can buy just about anything in its narrow streets and alleys. You’ll also have an opportunity to explore the spice market, which is a feast for the senses.

This tour exceeded all expectations then went beyond! If you want a private tour around Dubai and ensure you see all of the places you would want to see, this is the tour to go on! Our guide was super friendly, spoke fluent English, answered all of our questions, and was able to help us find what we wanted in shopping in the Old City. Trust me, this is a must!

very, very good tour with a great tour guide - THANK YOU ZIED

You should definitely book one or the other excursion online in advance of your Dubai vacation because it is usually more expensive on site. So you can save a little if you book in advance. This excursion is highly recommended! But I have to say that we were incredibly lucky and were the only ones who booked this city tour that day. So we had a private tour with the German-speaking tour guide Zied Chahlaoui. We could then simply determine what we wanted to see in Dubai before we drove to the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa. Or, Zied also made suggestions to us when we were unsure. He also showed us a place with an AMAZING VIEW of the Burj Al Arab. He also has a lot of knowledge about the city, the buildings, future building projects, ... etc. We learned a lot about Dubai and saw a lot in the 4 hours. (He also speaks French and English) THANKS TO ZIED! :-)

Guide was great; stopped at all of Dubai's major attractions

The tour guide was great. Patient and easy to get along with. They accommodated well for our group. Was hoping for a little more background information at the Dubai Museum and some shopping time at the souks, but they did well with the time we had. I would recommend this tour. Thanks Mounir for showing us around Dubai. We enjoyed it!
