Begin your tour with pick-up from your central Dubai hotel by private vehicle and a short drive to the Dubai Creek harbor. Then, kick off your sightseeing tour with a scenic cruise along the creek and glide past the city’s lively souks and modern high-rises aboard a traditional abra (wooden boat).
Back on the shore, admire the 18th-century façade of Al Fahidi fort, Dubai’s oldest building, then head inside to explore the Dubai Museum and learn more about the emirate’s fascinating history.
Continue your tour of modern Dubai with a drive beneath the towering skyscrapers of Sheikh Zayed Road to the glittering waterfront of Dubai Marina. Stop along the way to snap photos of the futuristic Burj Al Arab hotel, and look out over the mesmerizing landscape of Jumeirah Island. Then, discover more of Dubai’s high-tech developments as you marvel at architectural wonders such as the Atlantis Hotel, the Palm Jumeirah, and the enormous Mall of the Emirates.
There’s just time for one more stop before heading back to your hotel – the iconic Burj Khalifa building, officially the world’s tallest building.
