The traditional tour will start with the discovery of the Jumeirah area, and the famous Burj Al Arab, followed by a stop at an art center. You will also cross the new Canal, then take a visitor stop for a snapshot of the awe-inspiring Grand Mosque of Jumeirah that dates back to the Fatimid rule. You will continue to the historic district of Bastakyia, the magical old town which houses the Dubai Museum, located in the ancient fortress of Al-Fahidi which dates back 200 years. A visit to the Museum of Dubai is included on your own.

Next, you will have a chance to cross the creek by boat in authentic 'Abras', enjoying the spectacular cityscape while heading towards the District of Deira, which is home to Dubai's biggest spice and gold souks. Here, why not splurge on a golden souvenir or even sample exotic spices. The tour will continue with the discovery of the Zaabeel area and the rulers of DUBAI palaces before ending at the famous iconic Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall.
