Start your 4-hour tour with pickup from your Dubai hotel or the cruise port, and set out to explore the highlights of the city, famous for its cutting-edge architecture and leisure attractions.
On route, learn about Dubai’s past, hearing how it grew from a trading port into the glamorous metropolis of today. Drive along Dubai Creek, the waterway at the heart of the city, and then head for the oldest quarter, Al Bastakiya.
Here, see the restored old wind tower houses that belonged to Dubai's wealthy merchants, learning how the towers provided natural air-conditioning by capturing and circulating breezes around each residence.
Then, stop at Al Fahidi fort, a postcard-pretty fort built in 1787 that's home to Dubai Museum. After exploring the city’s history here, cruise across the creek on a traditional abra boat. Enjoy the views as you sail, and go ashore at Deira to visit its souks.
Delve into the Spice Souk, where vendors hawk spices, sweets, and other goodies, and explore the Gold Souk, a treasure trove of gold and jewelry outlets.
Drive through upscale Jumeirah and stop for photos at Jumeirah Mosque and the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel.
Your tour concludes with a hotel or port drop-off.
