Stop At: Dubai City Tour with Tour Guide, Dubai United Arab Emirates

When your ship arrives at Port of Dubai, meet your guide and hop inside your private, air-conditioned minivan. Then, set off on your 4.5-hour city highlights tour. Along the way, hear entertaining tales about Dubai and its history from your guide, as well as intriguing facts about its architectural wonders. Keep your camera poised to capture the forests of glitzy skyscrapers on route to Jumeirah Beach, the city’s buzzing seaside district. Stop for photos at the instantly recognizable, sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab hotel and hear how, at 1,053 feet (321 meters) high, this Dubai icon is one of the tallest hotels on the planet. Continue past the swanky hotels and villas of the residential neighborhood of Jumeirah. Take a stroll around the lanes and hidden courtyards, and admire the gleaming white domes and slender minarets of Jumeirah Mosque. Drive to Dubai’s oldest quarter, Al Bastakiya, with its mud-built wind-tower houses, and visit Dubai Museum, set inside the 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort. View the exhibits and scale models to discover how the oil boom of the 1950s and 1960s transformed Dubai from a fishing port into the high-rolling metropolis it is today. Next, enjoy a scenic abra ride across Dubai Creek to the bustling Spice Souk. Peruse the colorful wares as you breathe in the heady aromas, and then visit the glittering Gold Souk. Perhaps up some great-value gold and jewelry here before your shore excursion ends back at the cruise terminal or Hotel in Dubai.

Pre-tour phone support very helpful. Pick-up as promised. Program was easy-paced. Good interaction between Guide Yesser, Driver Gamil, and Clients. Nice way to get a glimpse of Dubai with only a half-day's time.

We were glad that the operator allowed some deviation from the original schedule to have more time in the Gold Souk. Enjoyed the shopping! Thanks!

This is the perfect tour for someone who is not at all familiar with Dubai, and would like to see quite a lot in a short amount of time. We had several things we wanted to do on our list, including the Dubai Museum and seeing the spice and gold souk, and got to check those off with this tour. Very good driver and very knowledgeable tour guide who shared so much about the history of Dubai, culture, economy - we learned a lot! We were also able to easily communicate with the tour company and explain where we were staying and how to pick us up, etc. Very good experience with this company.

This tour was great! You are essentially allowed to see any sights you choose, in the time allowed. My girlfriend was even allowed to shop! It's truly your private tour. Just have an idea of want you want to do prior to the tour and they will make it happen. Also, the guide was very knowledgable.
