Discover the historical sites of Dubai in just half a day!

A minibus will collect you from your hotel and take you directly to the Burj Al Arab hotel, one of the city's iconic landmark buildings. You'll stop in front of this amazing structure whose sail-shaped form rises from the sea and stretches high into the sky, giving you a chance to take photos. From here you will head to the residential area of Jumeirah to see the impressive mosque. 

The tour will continue to Al Bastakiya, the city's historic district, where you can visit the old fort of Al Fadidi which currently houses the Dubai Museum. You will then board an Abra (boat taxi) to cross the creek to the spice market. On the return journey you'll enjoy a little free time to do some shopping at the city's most famous market, the Gold Souk.

Don't miss this comprehensive visit of a city that holds many surprises!
