Unique Experience

Our guide Vibha was punctual in meeting us. Since it is Ramadan we were able to see Muslim men break their fast at the mosque closest to our first restaurant Al Bait Almaden. We tasted many new foods which represented the influence of the various cultures in Dubai. From motabbal to camel burgers. It was a wonderfully educational evening. We loved hearing about our guide’s life in Dubai and about the history of old Dubai.

One of the enjoyable days on our trip was when my sister and I went on the food tour with Manish. He was knowledgeable, personable and an all around pleasant person to be around. I would suggest this tour for anyone who wants to taste a bit of old Dubai. I also suggest you request Manish!
