Tour description provided by Viator

Visit Dubai while you’re in Abu Dhabi, and discover the historic sights and glittering modern landmarks of Dubai City , the official name of the city within the emirate of the same name. From the signature Burj Al Arab hotel to Jumeirah Mosque and the fabulous gold souk, you’ll see all the sights that make Dubai famous and learn about them from a local guide.

After driving across the border from Abu Dhabi in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle, your first stop in Dubai City is the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel on the sands of Jumeirah Beach.

Take photos of this famous landmark, and then continue with your guide along the shoreline to Jumeirah, one of Dubai’s upmarket residential areas. See Jumeirah’s luxury hotels, its picturesque palace and the white marble dome and minarets of Jumeirah Mosque.

Your next stop is Dubai’s atmospheric old quarter, Al Bastakiya, where winding lanes lead to hidden courtyards and mud-brick homes topped by traditional wind towers, designed to catch cooling offshore breezes.

Visit Al Bastakiya’s old Al Fahidi Fort, complete with cannons, turrets and fortified walls, and home to the Dubai Museum. Then take a ride across Dubai Creek, Dubai’s central waterway, in a traditional water taxi called an abra – it’s one of Dubai’s must-do activities.

On the Deira side of the Creek, soak up the color and perfume of the spice souk, and then have free time to browse the glimmering necklaces and rings in Dubai’s legendary gold souk.
