Welcome to Dubai, famous for its omnipresent modern skyscrapers yet brimming with history. This audio tour will throw you back to pre-oil times as you walk in the historic Bur Dubai and Deira districts.
To begin with, you will get a glimpse of how sheiks of the past would lodge and the early development of the Emirates at the Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House, his former official residence in Bur Dubai.
From there, you will reach the Dubai Grand Mosque of 1500 and climb the tallest minaret in the city to enjoy the stunning views of Dubai from 70 meters above the ground.
Don’t miss diving into Dubai’s pearl farming past dating back to 2,500 BC in the emirate’s flagship museum, the Dubai Museum, just across the street.
Strolling the Al Fahidi neighborhood, arty and quaint, you will take in the living history of the Arabian peninsula's original houses.
To continue the tour in the Deira district, you will cross Dubai Creek by abra, a traditional wooden boat.
Nearby the abra station, you will walk the maze of the Gold Souk streets to witness how they make up 25% of the global gold trade in Dubai’s single location. You will also discover an abundance of traditional perfumes and pungent spices at the bustling Perfume and Spice Souks.
Finally, you will be invited to learn about the role of women in the development of Dubai at the low-key Women’s Museum.
