Discover Dubai’s past on our Private Heritage Tour

First you’ll fly high above theexpansive coast, taking in seaside views of Sharjah and Dubai before landing on the waters of Dubai Creek. This is where you will begin retracing the history of seaplane flight in the Emirates.

In 1937, when the first seaplane landed in Dubai, the city had no electricity and no roads. Dubai has come a long way since. But its history dates back much further. Think 18th-century forts, traditional fishing boats, and souks filled with mystical charm.

Dubai Creek is the historic heart of the city and the natural focus of this Heritage Tour. You’ll be transported into the past as your expert guide shares old stories of the city and its people. As you wander the old neighbourhoods exploring exotic souks and museums, you’ll get a sense of the city as it was when it was a small fishing village on the banks of the creek.

Take a traditional water crossing on an Abra ferry, retracing the path of travelers from days gone by.  Food is one of the most immersive and delicious ways to explore culture, and so your journey ends with a colourful Arabic meal in the historic Bastakiya district.
