Dubai, UAE: This Ramadan, the Heritage Express is offering a culture-packed, unforgettable journey that will leave passengers with fond memories to last a lifetime.
Departing daily at 4.30pm from the Al Fahidi district, the Ride & Iftar package includes a ride around the city’s oldest neighbourhoods on the tour’s trademark traditional trolley bus and an immersive Iftar experience.
Taking in the fascinating areas of Al Seef, Al Abra, Al Ghubaiba and Al Shindagha, each tour is led by a Heritage Express ambassador, or local Emirati guide. Proud to be the beating heart and soul of this unique cultural attraction, the ambassadors are talented and engaging storytellers. As well as sharing facts and tales, they’re also on hand to answer any questions their passengers might have about Emirati culture and how Dubai grew into the thriving, modern city it is today.
But the fun doesn’t stop with the trolley ride; on returning back to Al Fahidi, the Iftar programme begins at 6.30pm at the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Centre for Cultural Understanding. This part of the evening also includes more exciting, enriching sites and experiences, including a visit to a traditional mosque and a drop by a bedouin desert camp to meet camels and falcons as part of the “Desert Friends” program.
Then, saving the best for last, the evening concludes with an exclusive Ramadan Q&A session held in an authentic Emirati majlis, a thoroughly enriching and educational experience available only to Heritage Express passengers during this important period.
