Our visit was guided with a very skilled and prepared guide, who explained to us a lot about places we visited. On the side - he is a very friendly and cheerful man. The same as all ladies staff we met at the reception office in Cultural Center.

Board a custom-built bus destined to take you to all the best culturally historic sites in Dubai. For the next 2 hours and 30 minutes, you can sit comfortably and listen to the compelling narrative about Dubai’s glorious past from one of the Emirati storytellers. The first stop will take you to the Al Fahidi neighborhood that dates back to the late 19th century. Positioned along the Dubai Creek, the historic district hasn’t changed much in the intervening years as most of its original infrastructure stands to this day. You will discover plenty of ochre-colored buildings and replicas of mud huts that will surely transport you back to the Old Dubai of the late-1800s.

Next, spend some time at the Dubai Museum to examine ancient weapons, tombs, pottery items, and important artifacts harkening back to the city’s prosperous pearl diving history. Also, learn about the museum’s past identities as a fort, prison, and armory during your visit. Al Fahidi is one of those rare places that has retained its old-world charm even in the aftermath of the oil boom that transformed the rest of the city’s landscape forever.

Another highlight of the trip is a visit to the Jumeirah Mosque. Its exquisite facade built in white stone, intricate design elements, and two beautiful minarets will surely capture your attention from a distance. The stunning interiors of the mosque are decked up in delightful colors like azure and pale yellow. As the only mosque in Dubai allowing non-Muslims, it is a prized attraction among tourists. Following this, you can take a cruise along the famous Dubai creek on a local abra, a traditional ferry-like boat for a quintessential Dubai experience. Lastly, also visit the desert bedouin camp, Al Shindagha, and Etihad Museum to round off your memorable trip.
