Old & New Dubai City Tour in 4 hours

Highly recommended! Very fast pace small group city tour of Old & New Dubai with an informative English speaking guide. A great way to see all the highlights in Dubai in a short period of time. Great way to get familiarize ourselves with Dubai and then go back and spend more time at the places we enjoyed the most. Our tour guide was prompt in picking us up from our hotel in an air conditioned van. First stop was a photo op at a very picturesque site with the Bhurj Khalifa in the background. Another great photo opportunity at Za'abeel Palace where all that glitters yellow is gold including the street lamps and street signs. The Dubai Museum was our next stop , a beautiful Museum with lots of exhibits, wished we had more time to spend here. I felt a little rushed. Then on our way to Dubai Creek to board an "abra" boat to cross Dubai Creek. What an interesting experience in this less than 5 min ride across the creek. Arriving at the Grand Souk Deira, we tasted some spices and then toured the Gold Souk. I had to be reminded it's a City Tour not a Shopping Tour, as I wished for more shopping time. Then a short drive to Al Safa Mosque in Dubai where I was loaned a burka to wear inside the Mosque. Absolutely stunning Mosque with beautiful architecture, so very clean. Lots of time to look around and take photos. Our driver headed out to a Public Beach called Umm Suqeim Beach, very windy and high waves. Nice beach photo op with the Burj Al Arab Jumeriah in the background. Hopped back in the air conditioned bus and headed for the Jumeirah Palm beach , lovely setting with the Atlantis Resort in the background.

Dubai is a beautiful place to visit and clean on the highways/biways. The weather is great in the month of February. The tour was very informative and it was nice to be picked up at our hotel. The people dress regular for everyday attire, except when you go into the Mosque. You have to cover up with no see-thru dresses showing legs or arms nor tight fitting dresses.

Enjoyable tour giving you a taste of Dubai lasting over 5 hours The guide was very informative and helpful allowing plenty of time at the stops even taking photos Pick up on time from Cruise port maybe the guide could have had a sign with ABC tours on instead of names on a sheet of paper which were not very clear was the only negative Good tour and great value for money
