Full description
Discover the spectacular sights of Dubai, and learn how it developed from a small fishing village on Dubai Creek to the lively metropolis of today. Visit the old district of Bastakyia, and enter Dubai Museum in the ancient fortress of Al-Fahidi. Ride an abra (water taxi) across Dubai Creek and enjoy superb views of the city en route to Deira. Be enchanted by the exotic spices on sale in the famous Spice Souk. Then, ponder whether to buy any of the glittering souvenirs in the Gold Souk. Stop to take photos of the Jumeirah Grand Mosque, built in the medieval Fatimid tradition. Take a photo of the iconic Burj Al Arab, before going to the Burj Khalifa for an optional lunch around the musical fountains. Head to Dubai Mall, where more than 1,200 stores and a host of world-class designers can be found. Continue to Palm Islands to see the famous Atlantis Hotel, located at the crescent of Palm Jumeirah.

A very good full excursion. The tour operator was Grayline. During the day we saw all the sights of the city. We visited the Dubai Museum, rode a boat, looked at the Palm from above on the monorail. We wandered around the shopping center Dubai Mall. We walked around the Marina. Visited the spice market in the old town. The bus has an audio guide in different languages. Throughout the route, they tell about the passing sights, the history of the formation of the city. Very informative. Free WIFI on the bus. The guide is very attentive and helpful. We had a transit in Dubai for 1 day. We were very satisfied.

Efficient pick-up from our hotel. Transferred to comfortable air-con tour bus with very well-spoken English tour guide Ritvi . Tour bus also had running commentary synchronized with the tour route. We enjoyed every detail listed on the tour and were mesmerized all day with everything, The Burj Al Arab, the Dubai Creek, The Burj Khalifa, the ride on the Abra , the Gold Souks the Spice Souks, the Palm Islands and the Atlantis Palm. Value for money tour with caring tour guide. This tour took a whole weight of our shoulders as we simply had to buy the tour to spend the whole day in Dubai. Tour was worth every dime that we spent. Do not hesistate to buy this tour. Dropped off at Dubai Mall just in time to see the DANCING FOUNTAINS at night. Super efficient Taxi system at the Dubai Mall at Taxi area to transport guests back to their hotel at YOUR OWN COST. So don't forget to carry enough cash to buy your souveniers and pay for your taxi fare back to your hotel.

If you would do the tour again, although not everything interests you, you would get a good insight. Lunch in the Dubai Mall was great. It was just a shame that it kept raining. But that shouldn't detract from the tour, conclusion ... great tour and the guide was also good.
