Full description
There is no better way to start the wonderful Dubai Experience than to pay a visit to the Famous “AL Fahidi Fort”, the Dubai National Museum. This is the place where once rulers of Dubai lived, today it’s a must to see!

Next, take a ride aboard the authentic ferry boat – abra - to Dubai's famous old market known as Spice and Gold souk. Take a short walk through the narrow alleys of the old town and find The Treasure House, a unique spot for shopping for an exclusive collection of leather and fur materials.

Leave the old town as you get to the bus to the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Palace – Dubai’s Ruler, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates. Take some memorable photos!

Continue passing the world trade Centre of Dubai along the 2nd December Street to the union house, an edifice reminder of the bravery of the grandfathers and their decision to create the United Arab Emirates. See the Jumeirah Mosque, known for its 8th century Islamic Architecture.

After a short drive, reach the Islamic Art Museum for a discovery of the savoir-faire of a great civilization. The last stop is Burj Al Arab – an amazing creation housing the region's most luxurious hotel and the world's first seven stars.
