Step by Step

Take advantage of this tour of Dubai to get to know every corner of the city with a local guide. In groups of around 15 people, you'll learn all about the emirate and you'll also be able to sample some of its gastronomic delicacies in the various markets you'll visit. To complete the experience and feel like a local, you can take a trip on one of the traditional boats.

Take a leisurely stroll through the most renowned historic neighbourhoods such as Al Seef, an old district on Dubai's waterfront that pays homage to an ancient Dubai activity: pearl harvesting. You'll also explore the humble streets of the Al Fahidi neighbourhood, also known as Al Bastakiya. Originally, this was a residential district of local merchants, craftsmen and fishermen.

The souks are traditional Arab markets that are a must-see in this city. Some of the ones you will visit are Old Souk, Dubai Spice Souk, Gold Souk. Each one with its own particularities, you will be invaded by the smells of spices and a festival of colours as you walk through the curious alleyways. Jewellery, precious stones and local textiles such as shawls are just some of the items on sale in these souks.

Dubai, among many other things, is known for its exotic Arabian food. On this tour you can taste products such as Arabic coffee or tea, dates, chocolate, orange juice, coconut or sugar cane. You can also experience the wide variety of shawarma and falafel flavours from the city's markets. For this you will need to select the Premium option on your booking.

You will have the opportunity to visit the Dubai Museum, a repository of artefacts and antiques recovered from trade between Dubai and Africa or Asia.

A stroll along Dubai Creek, the waterway that separates the Bur Dubai and Deria neighbourhoods, will show you the differences between the old and new parts of Dubai. Relax on board an abra: a traditional wooden boat that has been transporting travellers for centuries.
