NEW! Meet Falcons Up Close & Walking Tour



On this tour you will have the chance to not only experience the highlights of Dubai's historic area but also enjoy a fabulous interaction with some of the UAE's most valued companions: falcons. Hunting with the help of these majestic birds is an inseparable part of the Arabian heritage, a tradition that has been going on for thousands of years. Make sure you have your camera with you, this is one of those rare opportunities that will make you the envy of all your friends, family, neighbors, bosses, and... basically anyone who sees your photos!

About the tour:

- Transportation to the meeting point is not included, nor is it included for the return trip to your hotel. But don't worry, you can always take the metro or catch one of the many taxis, Dubai is a city where it is really easy to get around by public transportation!

- The tour starts with an amazing falconry experience. I will take you to a (seemingly unnoticeable) Dubai building where a knock on the right door is equivalent to the magic words "Open Sesame" :) This is the place where you'll gain first-hand knowledge about the hunting techniques, types and distinctive features of falcons, as well as of the extremely interesting relationship between the Beduin, falcon and the traditional saluki dog. And this is by far not everything that you will experience on this tour, I have a couple of surprises in store for you!

- Having said Goodbye to our beautiful feathered friends we will then head to the Dubai Museum. The time spent inside is flexible, you will be the one to decide how much time you wish to dedicate to the visit.

- Up next are the Spice and Gold souqs, two must-see attractions for every visitor to Dubai.

- We will cross the Dubai Creek by a traditional abra (water taxi), a great experience not only for the lively atmosphere of the surroundings, but also for the fantastic photo opportunities!

- The tour ends after some leisure time in the souq. It is your choice if you return home or continue the tour on your own, a perfect way to exercise your recently acquired bargaining skills!
