Full description

Explore Dubai's traditional and modern sides with a native 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 hotel pickup and drop-off.

After pickup, start your tour with a quick view of Dubai Creek before discovering the heritage area of Bastakaya with its Arabian wind towers. Visit the historic Dubai museum, located in the 225-year-old Al Fahidi Fort, and learn about the art, ancient history, culture, and lifestyle of the Arabs. Cross from Bur Dubai to Deira Dubai by traditional water taxi, or abra, and then take a walk through the spice and gold souks to marvel at the variety of goods on offer. You’ll then continue on to the Jumeirah Mosque and Burj Al Arab, the world’s most luxurious hotel, known for its distinctive silhouette resembling a billowing sail. Enjoy some free time for tea or coffee at Madinat Jumeirah Souk, an authentic re-creation of an ancient marketplace with traditional Middle Eastern style and ambiance.  After a break, head to the crescent-shaped man-made Palm Jumeirah Island and stop in front of Atlantis The Palm Hotel, which is 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. You’ll 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. You’ll 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, you’ll be dropped off back at your hotel.

Ashraf was an awesome tour guide. Very knowledgeable and caring. He wanted to make sure we were well taken care of during the entire trip. The tour itself was also amazing. I think it hit on all of the places I wanted to see plus more. I would highly recommend this tour and Ashraf.

The Dubai city tour was great, we had the privilege of experiencing the tour without any other tourists. Our tour guide Ahmat was very knowledgeable and friendly. You can tell that he really enjoys his job. We got to see so many places that would have taken quite some time to see on our own. Definitely very beneficial to have a guide alongside with you explaining Dubai’s incredible history and traditions. Would do again!

Great day with Ahmed and Jaqoob. We never would have been able to see so much on our own. Having a driver made everything so much easier. They were both extremely friendly, courteous and professional and knew lots about the city. It was a long day, but worth it. We especially loved walking around the Dubai Marina.
