About
Visiting Dubai from Abu Dhabi is a must, but taking the public bus leaves you without transport once there. This tour whisks you to and around Dubai in comfort, with a panoramic drive and visits to top attractions. Relax aboard an air-conditioned coach, admire the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, and other landmarks, and stroll and shop at souks and the Dubai Mall, all with a guide to provide background.

What to expect
Depart your central Abu Dhabi hotel by air-conditioned coach and journey through the desert to Dubai. After roughly 90 minutes, arrive and head to Dubai's palm-tree-shaped island of Palm Jumeirah.

Then, stop to marvel at the Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest tower at 2,716 feet (828 meters), before visiting Dubai Mall, the vast shopping center set below it. Enjoy free time for shopping and lunch (own expense) here before exploring Dubai Museum and crossing Dubai Creek on a public abra (wooden boat) to delve into Deira’s souks. Get bartering tips from your guide at the Gold Souk and wander through the Spice Souk, passing stalls piled with spices, herbs, sweets, and nuts. Your day concludes with a drop-off at your Abu Dhabi hotel.

There is no chance you can see all Dubai in one day, but our guide Shabeer managed to get us around to all of the important places in Dubai. Also was he ready to answer any question thrown at him. Only thing I could have wished for, is more time in the mall, since 2 hours simply isn't enough to get around. But we knew that on before hand

Three Generations of 'girlies' had a fab day out with our Brilliant guide Shabeer. He tailored the tour to what we wanted, he was informative, courteous and very happy to wait for us even when the souk drew us in! LOL! He accompanied us to The Burj Khalif and even went and got the tickets for us which meant we had time to eat whilst he did the queuing! The car was spotlessly clean, water was always available, and Shabeer gave us lots of tips and information on the way not only about Dubai but about the whole UAE. Thank you so much Shabeer it was a pleasure.

Just finished an enlightening tour of Dubai. Knocked off the main landmarks like the Burj Arab, Old Museum, Dubai Mall and the Souks.

Soaked most of it in on a pleasant 22deg day in January.

Try the dates at the souk. Amazing.

Shabeer was an AMAZING guide. Good man.

However the customer service and staff at the AE Tours we’re NOT good to deal with. They weren’t very accommodating and struggled to talk and to them. As long as you don’t have to deal with them you’ll be fine.

Tour was very good and our tour guide (Sudath)was awesome. It was my wife and another couple they were very unsociable (some people should not do group activities) but we still had fun. The mall was humongous and the souk (great bargains)was awesome but not enough time to see all. My favorite part was the river cruise being on the water was so beautiful and relaxing.

We had a great time with our driver Abdel Rasheed. He proved us that it was the right decision to book this tour instead a taxi. He showed us many places an told us a lot of.
