...all Dubai highlights combined in one tour...

I will collect you from your hotel / cruise ship in a comfortable mini van/SUV or Sedan. Our tour is private, which allows us to be flexible and spontaneous. We will meet the locals, do a little shopping and stop for refreshments whenever we feel like it. I will give you insider tipps and detailed info about Dubai's interesting past, present and exciting future. Key points of the tour are photostops at: Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Mosque, Zabeel Palace. We will visit the textile market. After a short Creek crossing by Abra, we visit the spice market and the gold souq. Our tour concludes at Burj Khalifa. After visiting the observation deck on the 124th floor, I advise you to spend the rest of the day at the spectacular Dubai Mall with its 1000 shops and many other attractions. Do not miss the Dancing Fountains from 6 pm onwards! There are many nice restaurants along the lake. You will return to your hotel / cruise ship by taxi in your own time. Can't wait to meet you !


keypoints of the tour are a walk through the "old" traditional part of town with shopping opportunities in Souq Al Khabeer (textile market), the Spice and Gold Souq

Abra ride (wooden watertaxi) across the Creek

photostops at all iconic landmarks such as Burj Al Arab - the famous sail shaped hotel, hotel Atlantis on Palm Jumeirah - the man made palm shaped island and at Cayan Tower - the tallest twisted tower in the world in Dubai Marina

The tour ends at the entrance of Burj Khalifa, which is inside Dubai Mall. You will be given your entry tickets and you can stay as long as you like on the observation decks on 124th and 125th floor of the tallest building in the world.

Afterwards it is recommended to spend the rest of the day exploring Dubai Mall and to see the Dubai Fountains.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will collect you directly from your hotel lobby or cruise ship terminal in Port Rashid in Dubai. Should you be staying in another emirate, such as Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah or Fujeirah, I can arrange a transfer from your hotel to a meeting point in Dubai at additional cost. Please make sure you mention the correct and complete name of your hotel.

End location: Our tour ends at the reception of Burj Khalifa, which is inside the Dubai Mall. I will give you a short orientation of the Mall and the surrounding area. There is lots to see and do so you should plan to stay in the Mall after you have visited the observation deck in the 124th floor of Burj Khalifa. Please do not miss to watch the Dancing Fountains from 6 pm onwards. There are plenty of nice restaurants around the lake and many other interesting attractions such as an indoor aquarium, a waterfall, an ice rink and an indoor zoo.
