One of our newest programmes, the Creekside Tour, has gained in popularity this year and includes all the features of the Heritage Tour, as well as a visit to the Textile and Spice Souks. 

 

Our Heritage Tour starts in the Bastakiya neighborhood of the Al Fahidi Historic District,  where local traders and pearl divers resided. Visitors will also take a peek inside the Diwan or "Ruler's Court" Masjid, adjacent to the Ruler's Court built in the 1980's.  Visitors walk along the Dubai Creek to visit Souq Al Kabeer, one of the oldest markets in Dubai.  Then hop on the Abra or Dhow, a water taxi and transport across the Creek as it was used in the past. Arrive at the Deira side of the Creek, and visit the Gold and Spice Souqs, followed by a return back to the cultural centre for a Q & A session in our wind tower house. Refresh yourself with Gahuwa (coffee) Arabia, and dates.  While on your tour, you will be accompanied by our seasoned guides, who will give you an insight into the local culture, traditions and religion of the UAE.
