Starting with a drive-through Al Garhoud Bridge, the first stop will be a photo opportunity at the Dubai Creek, where you can capture scenic views of Bur Dubai and Deira, as well as glimpses of traditional Dhow cruise boats. Following that is a 30-minute stop at the Dubai Museum, where the oldest building in Dubai is located: the Al-Fahidi Fort. Built-in 1800, the Al-Fahidi Fort served as the town’s stronghold and main defence against warring tribes. It also functioned as the government seat, ruler’s residence, ammunition warehouse, and a jailhouse. The museum is open from 8:30 AM to 8:30 PM during Saturdays to Thursdays; and only 2:00 PM to 8:30 PM during Fridays.
The next stop of this Dubai City Tour is a photoshoot at the Heritage and Diving Village, where potters and weavers showcase their craft.

A 30-minute stop here will have you feasting your eyes on premier gold jewellery and merchandise. Afterwards, you can stroll to the Spice Souq and savour the different aromas of spices, incenses, and traditional incenses – all available at bulk purchases and prices! Quickly shop all you want as only 15 minutes will be allotted for this stop.
To the other side of the Dubai City Tour you will be able to witness the famous Sheikh Zayed Road on your journey to Sheikh Mohammad’s Palace in Zaabeel. The palace was named after the late His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan, the first president of the United Arab Emirates.
On your way to the next stop, Jumeirah, you will catch a glimpse of the Mall of the Emirates, which is famous for having an in-house artificial ski resort. With this snow park, guests will be able to experience what it’s like to see snow in the middle of the desert.
When you get to the Souk of Madinat Jumeirah, you can grab the opportunity to witness awesome street performances, as well as amazing crafts from Arabic artisans and craftsmen. This spot is also ideal for those who want to capture the stunning beauty of the Burj Al Arab, renowned for being the only 7-star hotel in the UAE.
The finale of the tour is a stop at the most beautiful mosque in Dubai – the Jumeirah Mosque. With its huge central dome and slender twin minarets, it possesses a unique, exquisite beauty. Though it is the only mosque to allow non-Muslims to enter, guests are still expected to wear modest clothing, particularly one that covers the arms and legs.
