Afternoon Tour Exploring the City of Dubai
From USD 65.00
Dubai’s signature sights are spread across different districts and often hard to reach on public transport or foot, especially when it's hot. Get to see the top sights without any travel worries on this convenient tour. Stroll around old Al Bastakiya to learn about Dubai’s history; take photos of the Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab; and dive into souks, galleries, and more to sample the city’s culture.
What to Expect
Depart your central Dubai hotel by air-conditioned vehicle and head into old Dubai as your guide charts the city’s history and culture.

Stop first at Al Bastakiya (Al Fahidi), Dubai’s oldest quarter, and stroll around its lanes to see its wind tower houses. Learn how the houses were built by Persian traders in the late 1800s, and dip into Bastakiya’s art galleries and museums.

Delve into nearby souks and bazaars, and cruise through the swish Jumeirah neighborhood, passing its deluxe villas and Jumeirah Mosque. Snap photos of the Burj Al Arab from Jumeirah Beach, and take in the palm-tree-shaped Palm Jumeirah before a drive around Dubai Marina and the Mall of the Emirates.

Finally, keep your camera ready for a panoramic tour of futuristic Downtown Dubai. Enjoy photo ops by the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall, and Dubai Fountain here before your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.

tour has a fairly tight schedule as there is plenty of ground to cover in the bus (30 seats), but ran to schedule, mainly because our guide Imran was very upfront with timing requirements and hurried everyone safely between stops, which meant there was sufficient...More

Hi, no the tour takes you to Dubai mall to watch the fountain show and 5hat begins at 7.30pm so you will definitely not make it

They're pretty good at picking up at hotels so would imagine they'd pick up at Holiday Inn. Our tour ended about 8.30pm by the time we were dropped off at our hotel (but we were the last to be dropped off so maybe a bit... More
