What to expect

Enjoy a unique half-day tour of Dubai, exploring its old neighbourhoods as well as the more traditional bazaars and souks.
Following a pick-up from your hotel, you'll experience a magnificent view of Dubai Creek, passing through the heritage area of Bastakiya. See the charming wind-tower houses built by the wealthy merchants of old Dubai. Continue to Al Fahidi Fort, the city’s oldest building and now home to the Dubai Museum. See some of the city’s archives and exhibits that chronicle the development of the city.
Next, you'll climb aboard a traditional wooden abra water taxi and cross Dubai Creek to the Spice Market and Gold Souk.
Watch a private fashion show at the Treasure House, with free time after to examine the leather goods and exclusive jewellery. Continue to the Women’s Museum to learn about the role of women in the United Arab Emirates, past and present.
You'll then re-board your transfer vehicle and drive to Jumeirah Mosque for a photo opportunity outside one of Dubai’s most important landmarks. End with a drive past the ultra-luxury and ultra-contemporary Burj Al Arab to compare and contrast old and new, traditional and modern Dubai.
