Discover Dubai’s past on our Private Heritage Tour
Uncover the city’s history through back alleys, souks and museums finishing with a sumptuous Arabic meal
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. You’ll 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.
You can be assured of an intimate experience, this tour only caters to small groups with individual attention from your knowledgeable guide.
