Private Ultimate Layover Tour of Dubai

    What to Expect
    Meet your private guide at your Dubai hotel and set off by private, air-conditioned vehicle for Al Fahidi, the city's oldest quarter.

    Stroll the lanes to see the wind tower houses, and learn how the area was inhabited by Persian merchants during the 1800s. Visit the Coffee Museum to uncover the origins of this age-old beverage, and learn about local coffee-drinking etiquette.

    Next, continue to the Al Shindagha neighborhood, where Dubai’s royals settled in the 1900s, and visit Sheik Saeed Al-Maktoum House, once a home of the ruling Al-Maktoum family, and now a museum.

    View the artifacts that chart Dubai’s 20th-century history here, and ride an abra across Dubai Creek to Deira’s Gold and Spice souks. After perusing both of these bustling bazaars, look around the Al-Farooq Omar Bin Al-Khattab Mosque, one of Dubai’s most beautiful buildings.

    Afterward, see the glitzy yachts and high-rises at Dubai Marina, and visit Dubai Mall, the world’s largest retail mall. Gaze at some of the marine creatures of Dubai Aquarium through the mall viewing windows, and then head for the Burj Khalifa.

    Marvel at this soaring tower — the world’s highest — from outside before your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.
