Description

Explore Dubai's historic centre on foot and discover its main attractions in the company of a guide! 

Departing from your hotel in Dubai, you will head to the city's historic centre for a half-day guided tour. Take a step back in time and discover the district's lively, narrow streets. Accompanied by your guide, you'll learn more about Dubai's oldest and most picturesque district, where most of the buildings date from the early 20th century.

You'll enjoy a ride on an abra, a traditional Emirati city boat, to the heart of a famous spice market. Wander around the many stalls and admire the endless displays of spices, teas, oils and nuts. Your guide will then take you to the Jumeirah Mosque, one of Dubai's most iconic and beloved architectural works. Opened in 1979, the mosque is built in a Fatimid style, an artistic movement originating in Syria and Egypt.

You'll end your tour with a photo stop in front of the famous Burj Al-Arab, an iconic hotel that is among the most luxurious establishments in the world. You will then take the return journey to your hotel in Dubai.
