With so many attractions to explore, Dubai tours are popular with tourists who want to see the city in full, and offer a great opportunity to get to know the vibrant city of Dubai at its best.
Tours of Dubai
When you arrive in the city, begin with a tour of Dubai’s urban landscape. One of the best ways to do this is by open-top bus tour. Sit on the top deck for a humbling view of Dubai’s spectacular skyscrapers and its exotic attractions, where you can see major sights like the Burj Khalifa, the sail-shaped Burj Al-Arab and Dubai Marina.
For a glimpse beneath Dubai’s commercial exterior, arrange a guided tour of Jumeirah Mosque – the UAE’s most important religious site – with the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. Walking tours around the traditional buildings in Bastakiya can also be booked with this cultural group. And if you want to explore Dubai’s surrounding desert, guided desert safaris offer one of a kind experiences for visitors of all ages.
See Dubai from the water and above
For an unforgettable view of Dubai’s dramatic skyline, take a hot air balloon tour. Soar high above the city over the desert - it’s a particularly peaceful experience for visitors who want to escape the hustle and bustle of Dubai for a while. Or book a night time cruise down Dubai Creek in a traditional dhow, on which you can enjoy a traditional meal and marvel at Dubai’s architecture in comfort.
