Full description
You’ll have the choice of a morning or afternoon departure on this 5-hour Dubai heritage tour. In addition, you’ll also have the option of starting out with a seaplane tour.

On this small-group tour (a maximum of 9 persons) your guide will ensure that you have a personalized and educational experience, getting to the heart of Dubai’s culture and traditions.

If you choose the seaplane tour option, you’ll have the opportunity to take in views of Dubai from 1,500 feet above the city. See such iconic sites as the Palm Jumeirah, Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, The World, Dubai Creek, and others.

Embark on a refreshing early morning city tour along Dubai Creek and your expert guide will show you Dubai’s familiar sites and lesser-known attractions, providing interesting commentary along the way.

Watch the traditional Arab dhows sailing on Dubai Creek and become immersed in the history of more than a century of traditional commerce that continues today.

Discover the role played by Emirate women in Dubai’s history at the Women’s Museum. It’s an eye-opening and enlightening story that will surely captivate you and show you more of Dubai than its iconic buildings and sparkling resorts.

Visit several other historic sites such as the Textile Souk, the Spice Souk, and the Gold Souk. You’ll have the opportunity to explore the Al Bastakiya Historic Area and enjoy a meal at a traditional Arabic restaurant as well.
