Full description

Explore Dubai's traditional and modern sides with a local guide on a full-day tour. Stay cool throughout the day in an air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy included entrance tickets to several attractions, as well as a hotel pickup and drop-off.

After your pickup, start your tour with a quick view of the Dubai Creek before discovering the heritage area of Bastakaya with its Arabian wind towers.

Then, visit the beautiful Al-Fahidi Historical Neighborhood, dating from the mid-19th century. See traditional houses built from stone, gypsum, teak, sandalwood, fronds, and palm wood. Discover the alleys, pathways, and public squares that separate the houses, making the district naturally diverse.

Cross from Bur Dubai to Deira Dubai by traditional water taxi, or abra. Then walk through the spice and gold souks to marvel at the variety of goods on offer. Continue to the Jumeirah Mosque and Burj Al Arab, known for its distinctive silhouette resembling a billowing sail.

Enjoy free time for tea or coffee at Madinat Jumeirah Souk, an authentic re-creation of an ancient marketplace with a traditional Middle Eastern ambiance. Then, head to the crescent-shaped manmade Palm Jumeirah Island. Stop in front of Atlantis The Palm Hotel, the centerpiece of Palm Jumeirah.

Palm Jumeirah is the most scenic artificial man-made island on earth and boasts facilities such as world-class accommodation, private villas, residential apartments, beaches, water sports activities, and restaurants. Next, visit the Atlantis Aquarium.

Experience the unique beauty of Dubai from the Dubai Marina Walk, called by many a small Manhattan due to the many skyscrapers. Find lots of restaurants serving a variety of foods in front of the Marina Canal, where boat, yacht, and dhow rides are available.

Enjoy a drive along Sheik Zayed Road, lined with more skyscrapers, and stop at the Dubai Mall to experience the fine dining and shopping on offer, and enter Burj Khalifa, a magnificent steel structure rising 828 meters and the tallest building in the world.

Have free time at the Dubai Mall until the evening to watch the dancing fountain. This is the world’s largest dancing fountain and is synchronized with classical, Arabic, and international music. At the end of the evening, be dropped off back at your hotel.

This tour was great! We saw so many more things and did so quickly without having to spend a lot of time arranging tickets, travel, etc. Our guide spoke to us at each stop but then gave us free time to explore and a meeting spot to get back with the group. We felt like we had enough time to see each attraction without being rushed, but also didn’t need to waste time at each. This city is huge and much easier to navigate if someone is driving you.

Wonderful experience. Mohd was our guide from Sinbad tourism. She was amazing. Very pleasant and personable that’s a big plus. She was very informative and knowledgeable. She made our tour very special and magical. My only wish is that we could have had more time at each place. 8 hours is a lot but there was so much to see and enjoy. The beauty of all was amazing. Thanks again Mohd you were amazing. Keep up the good work. Teresa Wright
