Book This Tour
Get a sense of what Dubai used to be before skyscrapers, ultra-luxury hotels, and man-made islands changed it into the modern city we know today by taking this tour. Discover the city’s rich history, centuries-old traditions, and heritage on a fascinating journey.
Our knowledgeable tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in a private vehicle. You will get a chance to see what life was like in Dubai when it was just a fishing village when you visit Old Dubai.
The first stop is the Jumeirah Archaeological Site where you will learn about ancient pottery, coins, tools, and much more.
A cup of delicious tea and a snack will keep you energized at the Arabian Tea House. The spectacular Blue Mosque can be photographed or explored further by visiting it. Leaving the gorgeous Zabeel Palace for a photo stop, you’ll pass the Union House Flag, a symbol of national importance. On 2 December 1971, the declaration that united the country was signed here at 123 meters.
It is impossible to imagine a city like Dubai until you reach the Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood. Admire the spectacular Hindu Temple before taking a traditional abra to explore the world-renowned Spice and Gold Souks. A walk around the Al Shindagha area will also be offered during the winter season. In no way will you fail to fall in love with Dubai more than on this eye-opening tour.
