DUBAI CITY TOUR (B)

Dubai is a city that provides a new setting at every turn, offering a rich blend of the old and the new, making it, without a doubt, the leading tourist destination in the Middle East. Dubai is a city of ages that rises out of the desert and crowns the Gulf Coast with its presence. Your route takes you to the magnificent view of Dubai Creek, passing by the heritage area of Bastakiya, with its charming wind-towered houses built by wealthy merchants. You will then move on to the 225-year old Al Fahidi Fort, where the Dubai Museum holds precious archives of the city’s past, as well as chronicles of its developing stages. Next, you will board an Abra, a traditional boat, to cross the creek to visit the Spice Market and the Gold Souk. On our way to Burj Al Arab, the world’s most luxurious hotel, you will have the opportunity to stop for a photoshoot next to the Jumeirah Mosque – an architectural landmark of Dubai.

Take a step back in time and experience Dubai as it was 50 years ago. Your professional guide will escort you on a fascinating journey in a classic 1950’s Land Rover. No other vehicle offers a more authentic desert experience as you drive through the pristine Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, taking in the local exotic wildlife. As the sun goes down, watch a falcon soar around you.

 

Lit with traditional lamps, we welcome you to the Bedouin royal desert retreat. You will be immersed in local culture as you enjoy local dance, music, henna tattoos and experience the art of traditional Arabic coffee and bread making.
