Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Short stops mean that this tour fits as much as possible into one morning—ideal for first-time visitors.
After pickup from your Dubai hotel, travel by air-conditioned vehicle to your first landmark: Dubai Marina, where high-rise residences frame an artificial waterway.

View the palm-dotted Dubai Marina Walk, and admire the Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), where cloud-piercing residential towers gaze over the Arabian Gulf. Continue to palm-shaped Palm Jumeirah island, and view the upscale boulevards of villas here before snapping photos of the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel.

Call at the Blue Mosque, modeled on Istanbul’s Blue Mosque, and enjoy a guided interior tour (subject to prayer times and festival closures) to admire its Ottoman-inspired architecture. Marvel at the Burj Khalifa, the planet’s tallest building, and Dubai Mall, and pass landmarks including the Dubai World Trade Center and royal palace on route to old Dubai.

Here, discover the wind towers and courtyards of Al Bastakiya, Dubai’s oldest quarter, and chart the city’s history at Dubai Museum. Take in the Heritage Village and Souk Al Kabeer, and ride an abra across Dubai Creek to Deira’s souks. Stroll through the traditional Gold Souk and Spice Souk, perhaps purchasing goodies (own expense) on route.

Your tour then finishes back at the original start point.

Old & New Dubai City Tour in 4 hours

Highly recommended! Very fast pace small group city tour of Old & New Dubai with an informative English speaking guide. A great way to see all the highlights in Dubai in a short period of time. Great way to get familiarize ourselves with Dubai and then go back and spend more time at the places we enjoyed the most. Our tour guide was prompt in picking us up from our hotel in an air conditioned van. First stop was a photo op at a very picturesque site with the Bhurj Khalifa in the background. Another great photo opportunity at Za'abeel Palace where all that glitters yellow is gold including the street lamps and street signs. The Dubai Museum was our next stop , a beautiful Museum with lots of exhibits, wished we had more time to spend here. I felt a little rushed. Then on our way to Dubai Creek to board an "abra" boat to cross Dubai Creek. What an interesting experience in this less than 5 min ride across the creek. Arriving at the Grand Souk Deira, we tasted some spices and then toured the Gold Souk. I had to be reminded it's a City Tour not a Shopping Tour, as I wished for more shopping time. Then a short drive to Al Safa Mosque in Dubai where I was loaned a burka to wear inside the Mosque. Absolutely stunning Mosque with beautiful architecture, so very clean. Lots of time to look around and take photos. Our driver headed out to a Public Beach called Umm Suqeim Beach, very windy and high waves. Nice beach photo op with the Burj Al Arab Jumeriah in the background. Hopped back in the air conditioned bus and headed for the Jumeirah Palm beach , lovely setting with the Atlantis Resort in the background.

Dubai is a beautiful place to visit and clean on the highways/biways. The weather is great in the month of February. The tour was very informative and it was nice to be picked up at our hotel. The people dress regular for everyday attire, except when you go into the Mosque. You have to cover up with no see-thru dresses showing legs or arms nor tight fitting dresses.

Enjoyable tour giving you a taste of Dubai lasting over 5 hours The guide was very informative and helpful allowing plenty of time at the stops even taking photos Pick up on time from Cruise port maybe the guide could have had a sign with ABC tours on instead of names on a sheet of paper which were not very clear was the only negative Good tour and great value for money
