Overview
Exploring Old Dubai alone can be difficult if you’re unfamiliar with its districts and transportation systems. Ideal for first-timers, this guided, small-group walking tour steers you around the sights, while you can absorb the city's atmosphere and focus the area’s terrific shopping. Bargain-hunt at Deira’s souks, view Al Bastakiya’s wind towers, cruise Dubai Creek, and savor an Emirati lunch. A choice of departure times adds extra flexibility.
What to Expect
Book your desired departure time and meet your guide in Deira in Old Dubai. This bustling district is home to several colorful souks and street markets.

Stroll to the Gold and Spice souks, visiting landmarks and uncovering Dubai’s history as a pearl trading town. Then, peruse the shops’ gold, silver, souvenirs, and spices. Practice haggling with pointers from your guide, learning to say “ktir ghalee” (too expensive) when vendors quote their first price.

Next, ride an abra (water taxi) across Dubai Creek. Admire the panoramic views as you sail, and disembark on the southern bank to explore the Al Bastakiya (Al Fahidi) quarter, where Persian merchants first settled in the late 1800s.

Delve into the lanes to see the restored wind towers and houses, and afterward, savor a traditional Emirati lunch at one of Dubai’s best-loved restaurants. Your tour concludes in the Bur Dubai district.

It is getting very warm now. Sunrise is at 5:30 AM, so although "cooler" in the morning, it is not that cool.
