Full description
Discover the culture and heritage of Dubai on this walking tour and learn more about how it grew into the mecca that it is today. Start your tour at the entrance to Al Shindagha, passing by an old lookout tower and life-size replicas of traditional fishing boats. Soak up the sights, sounds, and smells of this port city as you stroll along the creek to reach the former residence of Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum.

As you enter the historic district, listen to your guide's overview of life on the creek and learn more about Dubai's pirate past. Depending on the day, visit either the Saruk Al Hadid Archeological Museum, where you can discover artifacts from one of the country's most important archeological sites, or, on Fridays, visit the Al Shindagha Museum, where you can learn more about Dubai's vibrant history, from its signature fragrances to how it grew into one of the world's most important cities. 

As the night progresses, head deeper into Al Shindagha to discover stories of adventure and disaster, such as the HMS Hyacinth Incident, and to further explore the city's rich architectural and historic landscape.
