Although the village of pearl divers and fishermen has long since been transformed into a modern and luxurious city with the help of contemporary architecture, you can still find traces of the historic city that existed 40 years ago. The “Traditional Dubai City Tour” will take you on a cultural journey back in time through a mini maze of buildings, narrow streets and meandering lanes of lively souks.
Highlights of the City Tour include a visit to the historically protected area of Bastakiya and the 225-year-old Al Fahidi Fort, which also houses the Dubai Museum. You’ll also cruise the scenic Dubai Creek on a traditional Abra boat. Furthemore, you will visit the Spice Souk and Gold Souk with their alluring scents and shimmering jewels. After that you will be taken to the famous Burj Al Arab. The hotel’s silhouette resembles a sail of a boat. This iconic place has redefined the luxury standard in the hotel industry worldwide. We also take a look at the Jumeirah Mosque from outside.
Your tour guide will then bring you back to your ship at the agreed time.
We wish you an exciting shore excursion in Dubai!
