What You Can Expect

Dubai by Night City Tour

Dubai Night Tour

Hop aboard your sightseeing bus in central Dubai, and set off on a tour of the city to see the sights by night! As you ride around Dubai’s downtown streets, your onboard guide will keep you entertained with commentary about the city; hear about its culture, history, attractions and, of course, Dubai at night!

Pass along Shiekh Zayed Road, an impressive highway with some 16 lanes of parallel traffic, all lit up in the evening light – making it an intriguing attraction in its own right. Continue past Burj Al Arab, the luxury hotel with an unofficial 7-star accolade, and then look across the coastline to Palm Jumeirah – a man-made archipelago shaped to look like a palm tree.

Sit back and relax as you ride through a neighborhood known to the locals as ‘skyscraper city’ -- an area comprising Dubai Marina with its swanky lit-up yachts, and Jumeirah Lakes Towers, home to 79 high-rise towers set around artificial lakes.

Detour past the world’s largest tower, Burj Khalifra, to see its 163 floors illuminated against the backdrop of Dubai’s inky dark night sky. Then, finish your tour on a high note with a stop at Wafi City, an Egyptian-looking mall complex, to see a spectacular light and sound show. Using state-of-the-art special effects, the 15-minute display is projected across the mall’s buildings. Watch the show from the comfort of your bus, or hop off to get a closer view.
