Full description
After a prompt pick-up from Dubai's cruise terminal in an air-conditioned vehicle, transfer to the Palm Jumeirah artificial Island. Admire the incredible scenery and stop to take pictures of the luxury Atlantis hotel and Dubai Marina. Then, continue on to the Souk Madinat Jumeirah, a well-known marketplace in Dubai which promotes middle eastern culture. From the souk, see the world-famous luxury hotel, the Burj Al Arab where you capture more incredible photographs. Next, head over to the Blue Mosque (Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque) and admire its ornate architecture that was inspired by the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. See how the design and interiors of the mosque combine Andalusian, Turkish, Moroccan, and Ottoman styles and patterns. This incredible structure can accommodate around 2000 worshippers at one time. After this, explore Old Dubai from Dubai Creek. Cross over the creek by hopping on the Abra water taxi. Venture into the Gold and Spice Souk for a quick shopping trip.

Our guide was fantastic! He spoke a very good English and offered to take photos of us with our camera many times.
