What to Expect
Depart your Dubai hotel by air-conditioned vehicle bound for Dubai Marina. View the marina’s skyscrapers and the towers of the Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), and after admiring the villas on Palm Jumeirah island, stop for photos outside the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab. Continue to the Blue Mosque for an interior tour (subject to prayer times and religious holidays) to note its Ottoman-style design, and then marvel at the Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest tower. From here, pass other landmarks on the way to Old Dubai. See the wind towers of the old Al Bastakiya (Al Fahidi) enclave, and trace Dubai's growth at Dubai Museum before crossing Dubai Creek by traditional abra boat. Delve into Deira’s vibrant Spice and Gold souks and perhaps pause to snap up bargains (own expense) before your tour concludes at the original starting point or a central mall.
