My son and I had some time before we needed to catch our flight and we had asked for some assistance with our luggage and transfers to airport and requested some special details. We got everything we wanted! The tour was absolutely fascinating! We learned so much about Dubai and UAE culture and lifestyle. We could have asked questions for days!

While you're at it, sample ice cream made from camel milk. Then continue to the coin museum, where you will see the ancient coins of Arabia and Dubai. You can also admire fantastic views across Bastakiya from the roof! As you make your way to the Dubai Museum, stop in front of a mosque and learn more about Islam. Then, at the Dubai Museum, learn about the history of the city and how it developed so quickly.
