Full description

Explore Dubai's traditional and modern sides with a local guide on a full-day tour. Stay cool throughout the day in an air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy included entrance tickets to several attractions, as well as a hotel pickup and drop-off.

After your pickup, start your tour with a quick view of the Dubai Creek before discovering the heritage area of Bastakaya with its Arabian wind towers.

Then, visit the beautiful Al-Fahidi Historical Neighborhood, dating from the mid-19th century. See traditional houses built from stone, gypsum, teak, sandalwood, fronds, and palm wood. Discover the alleys, pathways, and public squares that separate the houses, making the district naturally diverse.

Cross from Bur Dubai to Deira Dubai by traditional water taxi, or abra. Then walk through the spice and gold souks to marvel at the variety of goods on offer. Continue to the Jumeirah Mosque and Burj Al Arab, known for its distinctive silhouette resembling a billowing sail.

Enjoy free time for tea or coffee at Madinat Jumeirah Souk, an authentic re-creation of an ancient marketplace with a traditional Middle Eastern ambiance. Then, head to the crescent-shaped manmade Palm Jumeirah Island. Stop in front of Atlantis The Palm Hotel, the centerpiece of Palm Jumeirah.

Palm Jumeirah is the most scenic artificial man-made island on earth and boasts facilities such as world-class accommodation, private villas, residential apartments, beaches, water sports activities, and restaurants. Next, visit the Atlantis Aquarium.

Experience the unique beauty of Dubai from the Dubai Marina Walk, called by many a small Manhattan due to the many skyscrapers. Find lots of restaurants serving a variety of foods in front of the Marina Canal, where boat, yacht, and dhow rides are available.

Enjoy a drive along Sheik Zayed Road, lined with more skyscrapers, and stop at the Dubai Mall to experience the fine dining and shopping on offer, and enter Burj Khalifa, a magnificent steel structure rising 828 meters and the tallest building in the world.

Have free time at the Dubai Mall until the evening to watch the dancing fountain. This is the world’s largest dancing fountain and is synchronized with classical, Arabic, and international music. At the end of the evening, be dropped off back at your hotel.

We did the tour with Amira a few days ago and were very excited thanks to the good reviews and weren't disappointed either. She was super nice and friendly and went out of her way. We were able to see a lot and also learned a lot about Dubai that we didn't know at all. Everything was super organized and worked smoothly from pickup to return transfer. It was definitely worth it and we can only recommend the tour

It’s a very good tour to get a taste of Dubai. Ameera was an amazing guide, very knowledgeable, great photographer and always smiling. We didn’t have to queue anywhere including Burj Khalifa and that wad a bonus. The only downside is that on the tour prescription is mentioned that we will visit Jumeirah Mosque but we didn’t.

Adequate visit to get an idea of what this macrocity is. The description of the activity does not match reality: The guided tour is from 9am to 2pm, with permission to bid on the Burj Kalifa and free times until 6:15pm when the driver and pick-up. Actually, the sortida is from gairebé 10 h (5 of the quals with guide)
