What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Dubai City Half-Day Sightseeing Tour

Admire top Dubai attractions such as the Burj Al-Arab on a private layover tour

Start your experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Hop inside your private, air-conditioned vehicle with your private guide and begin your 4.5-hour private tour.

As you travel, view Dubai’s futuristic buildings and hear how it transformed from a sleepy fishing village into today’s cosmopolitan city after the oil boom of the 1950s.

Drive to Jumeirah Beach and take photos of the Burj Al-Arab hotel, rising like a sail from just off the shore. Hear how the hotel is one of the world’s highest at 1,053 feet (321 meters) tall.

Travel into Jumeirah, one of Dubai's most upscale residential neighborhoods. View the exclusive villas and Jumeirah Mosque, and continue to the old Al Bastakiya district near Dubai Creek.

Stroll down the narrow lanes past courtyards and traditional mud-brick houses. View the wind towers of the homes as your guide explains how they were designed to maximize the cool breezes.

Next, visit Dubai Museum, set inside Dubai’s oldest building: the 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort. Explore the displays and models that chart the city’s history, and then ride an abra across Dubai Creek to Deira.

Delve into the Spice Souk to discover the stalls selling perfumed spices, herbs and nuts, and finish your retail sorties at the maze-like Gold Souk.

Browse the stores for bright gold, silver and jewelry and afterward, finish your tour with a hotel drop-off.

Absolutely awesome tour of the city. Considering we didn't book till the night before and our guide was here with his driver promptly st 8.30am. We were taken to sell the highlights of Dubai and much more. Where the best position for a photo. As we had done the Burj zkhslifia the day before so that was crossed off the list. My husband mentioned where was May Dan racetrack and our guide added that into the tour. It was the absolute highlight for my husband and one he will remember. If you want to see Dubsi and learn the history then this tour is the one for you. Highly recommend any visitors book this tour with s knowledgable guide snd a great driver.

We did this tour with Mehel as our guide and found him very knowledgable. He knew the history of Dubai and the UAE and we found it most interesting. He also went out if his way to make sure my 80 year old mother was as comfortable as could be in 45 degree heat. The only
down side was that the museum was closed when we arrived - not Viator's fault. It would have been good if museum personnel had informed the tour company of this change. Overall a worthwhile tour.
Thank you Viator!!

Best tour! Both my guide and my driver were so knowledgeable about all facets of Dubai! They talked about the geopolitics of Dubai like experts and even threw in how religion and history shaped the city! Would give a 15/10! Mohammed Sammi was the best!

The 1/2 day city tour was brilliant. It was made so by our guide who really took us on an interesting trip of Dubai thru' the ages. We started at the glitzy end, the Burj Al Arab and made our way to the old time Spice and Gold Souks. Thru the drive our guide gave us several tidbits about Dubai and its evolution. It was informative and interesting. The ride across the creek in an Abra was a fantastic experience. We finished at the Dubai Museum housed in Al Fahidi fort which is a must see for all visitors. Our guide and driver were courteous and friendly throughout and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour.
