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

Dubai on one side and modern Dubai on the other side.
