This incredible city has risen from the sands in what seems an impossibly short period, however hidden amongst the glittering skyscrapers are areas of vibrant heritage and golden traditions, many of which you will discover today. Beginning in Bastakiya, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Dubai, you will visit the Dubai Museum, weave through the alleyways of the Al Fahidi Historical District, take a traditional “Abra” water taxi, explore the gold and spice souks (markets), and have photo opportunities at the Jumeriah Mosque and Jumeriah Beach, with the iconic Burj Al Arab in the background. Upon the conclusion of your tour you will be returned to your hotel for an afternoon of leisure or self-guided exploration as you see fit.
