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!

Delicious Dubai Food Tour - The 10 Tastings

We had so much fun seeing the Dubai from a local perspective. Vibha was so nice and gave us great information about the city plus we were able to go to restaurants we never would have seen without her. It really was like having your friend give you a tour of the city. I would recommend this tour and choose Vibha She’s fabulous.

Best of Dubai Private Layover Tour

Having 5-6 hours available for a tour in Dubai between my flights, Gomez helped me to make the most out of it in the most comfortable way. He's a charismatic guide and knows all the good spots in Dubai. Thanks to Gomez this tour was as inclusive, easy and comfy as possible! I will definitely take the opportunity again during the next stop-over to see the rest out of Dubai.
