Begin with pickup from your Dubai hotel between 9am and 10am. Meet your guide, board your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle, and set off on your 4-hour tour.

View Dubai Creek, the waterway that winds between the older districts of Deira and Bur Dubai, and glimpse the traditional wind tower houses of the historical Al Fahidi quarter, Dubai's oldest neighborhood.

Continue from here to Dubai Museum, set in picturesque Al Fahidi fort. Admire this restored 18th-century fort, and head inside to learn about Dubai’s ancient and modern history. View the displays and exhibits that include age-old archaeological artefacts, charting how Dubai evolved from a fishing port to today’s metropolis after the discovery of oil in the mid-20th century.

Next, switch the focus to modern Dubai, heading through upscale Jumeirah to Jumeirah Beach. Stop for photos of the Burj Al Arab, the sail-shaped hotel on an artificial island just offshore, and take in the sight of the mighty Atlantis The Palm hotel, rising from the Palm Jumeirah.

See the vast Mall of the Emirates and Sheikh Zayed Road, and pause to take in the incredible Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest tower, in downtown Dubai.

Your tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.

The best local guide
, Aug 2019
Waseem is a really nice guy. His local knowledge is wonderful and his english too. We were so lucky to get him as our guide. He really went out of his way to show us around. When he knew what we are interested in he pointed things out as we passed that added to the experience. We had a great chat and learnt a lot about local life in Dubai. Very courteous and helpful gentleman. We would highly recommend him!
