    You will have the opportunity to experience and explore all that this vibrant city has to offer. Prepare yourself for a fascinating and educational tour. During your multi-stop guided tour, you’ll be taking a look back into the past to discover how the small fishing village of Dubai Creek became the teeming metropolis it is today, rich in both culture and famous for its skyline and urban architecture. Your "traditional visit" starts off with a visit to Jumeirah and the famous Burj Al Arab, before stopping off at an art centre. You will then cross Dubai's new Water Canal on the way to visiting the impressive Jumeirah Grand Mosque. Then it’s on to the historic Bastakyia quarter, the charming and historical residential area that houses the Dubai Museum, itself located inside the ancient Al Fahidi Fort, Dubai’s oldest functional building.

    Your entrance ticket to the Dubai Museum is also included in the tour; this part of the visit is not guided however. Next up is the crossing of Dubai Creek by “abra” boat. Aboard these small, motorized water-taxis you will be able to enjoy the city’s spectacular scenery while heading for Deira, location of one of the largest souks that specialises in spices and gold! The tour continues with the discovery of the Zaabeel region, location of the Sovereign’s Zaabeel Palace before heading on to the famous and iconic Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall.
