Half-day private Old & New Dubai Tour including At The Top, Burj Khalifa
Your tour starts with a drive along the picturesque Jumeirah beach area, home to modern-day Palaces. Make a photo-stop at the iconic sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel, voted the World’s most luxurious. Next, you drive onto Palm Jumeirah. Make a photo-stop near the US$1.5b Atlantis Resort, embodying the bold new face of this megalopolis. Continue along the coast for a drive around the world’s largest artificially created Dubai Marina. Your tour then takes you to Burj Khalifa Downtown district you visit Burj Khalifa. At 828 meters the tallest building in the world inspires awe like no other. A high-speed elevator ascends to the Observation Deck at 10 meters per second. As the doors open on Level 124, floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide breath-taking 360-degree views of the city, desert, and ocean sprawled beneath. After 30 minutes at leisure, descend to reality before returning. After this sensory overload and in complete contrast to the modern face of Dubai, you will drive next to the Bastakiya area in the Old Quarter for a tantalizing glimpse of Dubai’s yesteryears. See the former merchant’s houses with their 'Barajeels' wind-towers, the earliest form of air-conditioning. On your return, there is time to stroll at the most famous landmark of Dubai – the gold souk.
