Dubai Sightseeing

  • Burj Khalifa
    The absolute most breathtaking view of all of Dubai is at the top of Burj Khalifa from the 125th floor of the tallest building in the world. This massive skyscraper is actually fascinating to see, it is so high up that when you are at the top you can actually see how the earth curves! Have a private tour of Burj Khalifa with one our hosts and you won’t regret it.
  • Old Dubai Creek
    A gem, the Old Dubai Creek in the Bur Dubai/Deira area that makes up the old historic area of Dubai is a real local gem. It is often referred to as the “heart and soul” of this ultra modern city. And a top sightseeing attraction! Your host will be happy to show you the winding gold, spice, and textile markets. Enjoy a local meal on the water and take in the beautiful view of the creek.
  • Palm Jumeirah
    The Palm Jumeirah Island is best seen with a local who can explain and show you the full architectural genius of this unique Island that is literally shaped like a perfect Palm tree. The view from every side is beautiful and not to be missed. Your host will give you the full tour of the Island and also share the exciting backstories and controversies behind how this Island came to be.
  • The Desert
    The United Arab Emirates is blessed with miles of gorgeous desert, incredible sand dunes, and beautiful desert oases. Your trip to Dubai would not be complete without a visit to the enchanting desert. You must experience an authentic Desert safari tour with one of our local hosts. It is an experience you will always remember!

The Ultimate Layover Dubai Tour

We had a very interesting, complete and funny visit to Dubai discovering many places and things for sure you never experience in another way.
Anand was very funny and we enjoyed the visit with many explanations, stories and even jokes. He is also very talented in making excellent pictures.
For sure I would repeat it in the same way.

Dubai's Favorite Food Tour: 10 Tastings

José Gomez not only took us to discover the most wonderful culinary secrets of downtown Dubai, he also showed where not to buy the saffron, spices and nuts we had on our shopping list and took us to places where the locals shop without the tourist mark up.
Did you know to brew an infusion of olive leaves if you want to loose weight? Or to chew on cinnamon sticks if your blood sugar is too high? José taught us these and other ayurvedic health tips.
We got to eat the best mezze and schawarma, a camel burger and delicious camel milk ice cream. By the end of the tour we were stuffed and happy. José is a wonderful, entertaining and thoughtful host, we could not have had a better experience of discovering the culinary wonders of Dubai. Very much to be recommended! Thank you José!

Dubai Layover Night Tour

Jose was fantastic and very accommodating. We were able to stop at all the spots we wanted to see in just a short time. He helped us navigate the Gold Souk as we were on a mission to find something specific. Unfortunately, I had been sick so I wasn't feeling well but still wanted to see the highlights. He made this very easy. Even though we had to cut our time short, we still got to do ALOT. Thanks Jose!
