Venture into the heritage areas like the Dubai Creek and the old town district of Al Bastakiya, browse in the bustling Spice & Gold Souk market, or merely sit back and enjoy city views by hopping on an Abra. The tour culminates with impressive panoramic views of Dubai from the iconic Dubai Frame.
Embark on the Historical City Tour from the Burjuman metro station as the tour begins with a scenic drive to the Crossroads of Civilizations Museum. The tour includes visits to all the three museums within the compound displaying a rich personal collection of historical artefacts, rare manuscripts, and the armoury of Ahmed Obaid Al Mansoori. The Museum caters for a vital understanding of cultural crossroads of global trade routes between Europe, Africa, Asia, and the United Arab Emirates.
Next, you will be driven pass by the vibrant neighbourhood of Al Bastakiya – home to the historical Al Fahidi Fort. Here is our Dubai Museum (ticket entry included) stop. The Dubai Museum allows developing a deeper understanding of the history of Dubai and its culture. The museum has various monuments including rare antiques such as pottery, weapons, tombs, and ancient local artefacts.
After an insightful exploration, the tour guide will venture you through the vibrant textile market to get you to the oldest part of Dubai: Deira. Here, you can board an Abra water taxi, where you can enjoy taking snapshots of spectacular panoramic views of the city. This traditional way of transit is popular due to its quick way to access the areas surrounding Deira Creek.
Add flavour to your tour by browsing through the colourful textile markets and Spice & Gold Souk. Meander through the numerous spices’ stalls that fill the air with aromatic smells, before being taken to visit the Dubai Frame. The iconic landmark measures 150 meters high and 93 meters wide and is made up of 9,900 cubic metres of reinforced concrete, 2,000 tonnes of steel and 2,900 square metres of laminated glass – a sturdy structure, indeed. The landmark has 48 floors, which provide for spectacular panoramic views of old Dubai on one side and modern Dubai on the other side.
The tour ends with a drop off back to Burjuman Metro station.
