Historic Dubai Walking Tour (Old Dubai Tour)


Dubai History

Historical Bastakiya

Exploring the Heritage of Dubai

Built in 1859, the Al Fahidi (Bastakiya) Historical Neighborhood was once a bustling trading hub for merchants, conveniently situated near the banks of the Dubai Creek and protected from attack by ancient forts and watchtowers.

Today, the area plays host to traditional architecture, multiple museums, gorgeous street art, and ancient fortifications. Our historic tour of Dubai delves into the city’s heritage and explores what early life was like in this desert trading town. It’s a great way to learn about the traditions of Dubai.
