Next, head to Souk Madinat Jumeirah that gives an authentic cultural experience and a glimpse of the ancient Dubai lifestyle. From the Souk, see the world-famous luxury hotel, the Burj Al Arab and capture incredible photographs. Later on, proceed to the Blue Mosque, known as the Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque. This religious shrine was inspired by the Ottoman and Andalusian styles of architecture. It has wonderful interiors, decorated with beautiful chandeliers and a library that is home to almost forty thousand books related to different religions. It is now time to explore Old Dubai and the Creekside, where it all began. Hop on the Abra water taxi, the city's oldest mode of transportation, to cross the Creek.

We had such a wonderful time on this tour. Our tour guide Maaz was incredibly friendly and very helpful on our last night in Dubai. He also arranged for us to be dropped off at the Dubai Mall which is a site we would have not otherwise been able to visit due to time constraints. I would highly recommend this tour to see more of Dubai and have the history explained by a true local.

Our tourguide (Ramadan) helped us to get to know both historic and modern Dubai in the best way possible. He was knowledgeable, answered all our questions and offered us an unique and amazing experience. He was funny, had a professional attitude and was speaking English fluently. We (group of 4 people) enjoyed the time spent together! We highly recommend this experience!
