Full description
The tour will commence when you are picked up from the hotel/selected location by your tour guide. The first pit stop of the tour will be at the Palm Jumeirah, the celebrated man-made island that mimics the shape of a Palm Tree. Make a photo-stop at Atlantis Hotel that stands at the apex of the Island.

From this point, get a peek of the Dubai Marina, an opulent waterfront featuring splendid architecture.

Then move to Souk Madinat Jumeirah and experience the charm of Bedouin Culture and marketplace.

The quaint market recreates the bygone trade culture that existed in Dubai before the modernization. Here, you can catch a glimpse of sumptuous Burj Al Arab in the background.

Then you will be driven to Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque, popularly known as the Blue Mosque. The mosque’s design which is inspired by the Blue Mosque in Istanbul combines Andalusian and Ottoman architecture. The mosque interiors, which can accommodate 2000 people, are beautified with extravagant chandeliers and wall art. After the mosque visit, you'll be driven to old Dubai to witness the past and progress of this ultra-modern city.

Visit the Dubai Creek and enjoy an Abra Ride (ancient water transport system) to cross the Creek.

Stroll through the Gold and Spice Souks which are lined with shops and stalls selling exquisite gold and spice items.

Then move to the last pit stop of the tour: the Dubai Frame. Witness the 150-meter building that replicates the shape of a photo frame. The building comprises two lofty towers which are connected by a glass bridge. You can view Old Dubai on one side and modern Dubai on the other side of the Frame.

After this, you will be dropped back to your selected location.

Super nice and nice to see a lot of Dubai in a short time. We did this on our last day and then saw everything we had 'missed'! If you had to do this on your own, it would really not work out in one day in terms of time.

Laid back informative tour of Dubai and the Frame. The "Blue Mosque" was amazing and we got to wear Muslim garb to go inside and our tour guide, Noon, was a great photographer. He took a photo of me in the tour-provided Muslim garb in the Mosque which I will blow up because it is a well framed, black and white photo giving it a timeless feel. Noor also took photos of us at the beach which were creative. I got an overview of the city of Dubai including the old section with its many Souks, the Marina District where we took a small boat on the river and we drove to Palm Jamiera, the man-made island. Views from the Frame were amazing. Overall a great way to spend a half day in this beautiful city.

+ Guiden var toppen! 10/10! + Moskén var väldigt intressant och + touren gjorde många stopp för fotografering. -Transport från hotellet till mötesplatsen för utflykten var hemsk. Han kom 15 minuter för tidigt och hämtade, sedan stod vi och väntade vid olika platser, utan att han överhuvudtaget sa ett ord till oss i bilen. Transfer från hotellet tog över 1 timme och det var mest bara väntetider och han hämtade bara oss och ett annat par från ett annat hotell. -Guld- och kryddmarknaden var bara in turistfälla. Verkligen ingenting att se. -The Frame var inte heller in höjdare. Man såg glasgolvet på 2 minuter och sedan kunde man gå därifrån, fans inget mer att se.
