What you'll do

Our bus and our english speaking guide will meet you at the port of Dubai.

Dubai is the second largest emirate, out of the seven that form the country and is considered the commercial capital of the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East.

The city is popularly known as the "City of Merchants". It is a unique blend of East and West, a fascinating mixture of oriental charm and western modernity. During the tour we can admire both the historical side of the city and the incredible architectural feats of the modern city.

During the tour the following points of interest will be visited: we will pass by the Dubai Frame then continue our tour by bus and arrive at the Jumeirah Mosque (photo stop) which is one of the main monuments of Dubai. This medieval Fatimi style construction is a tribute to modern Islamic architecture.

We will cross the Dubai Canal and make a photo stop at the Madinat Jumeirah, one of the most impressive tourist attractions. It is located next to Burj Al Arab (the most luxurious and famous hotel in the world, the only one with a 7 star category, shaped like a sailing vessel). The complex, which imitates an Arab city, is formed by bazaars, restaurants, nightclubs and a beautiful artificial canal, full of gondolas that resemble Venice. In addition to the souk, the area has a private beach and luxury hotels inspired by the style of the Arabian palaces of "The Thousand and One Nights".

We will continue our bus ride to Mall Of The Emirates (panoramic view from the bus): it is one of the largest shopping centers in Dubai, where the famous ski slope is located.

We will arrive at the Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa with 828 meters high, it is the tallest structure built by the human being, in this moment.

At the end of the visit we will have 2 options (approximately 1.5 hours):

Option A: Free time to discover / explore the surroundings of DUBAI MALL accompanied by our guide.

Option B: POSSIBILITY TO RISE BURJ KHALIFA (on your own) and then discover the largest shopping center in the world. (prior reservation with Shore2Shore, subject to availability)

We will return to the bus in the direction of the old city of Dubai.

We will arrive at the Dubai Museum: it is the main museum of the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. It is located in Al Fahidi Fort, built in 1787 and considered the oldest building in the city. 

We will walk through the area and arrive at the Dubai Creek: it is a natural river that goes into the earth approximately 10 kilometers. This geographical feature marked the starting point in the construction of the city. Separate Dubai in Deira and Bur Dubai, the two historic neighborhoods of the city. We will cross the river in a typical boat called Abra to visit the market of gold, spices and leather (walking).

At the end of the excursion we will return to the port.
