Historic Dubai Walking tours
Old Deira, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
The best way to visit the historic areas of Bur Dubai and Deira is to walk. Each neighborhood can be visited in half a day, and especially in hot weather, the most sensible approach is to visit one side in the early morning and the other in the evening. During this daylong walking tour, you'll discover the city's old quarters, survey the traditional architecture of Emirati homes and mosques, visit cultural centers, ride a water taxi across the creek, and interact with local merchants in the souks. There's no better way to get to know the original heart and soul of Dubai. Stop by the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding for information about guided walks through Bastakiya, the historic old town.
