This was a wonderful, wonderful tour of the souks and the creek and Old Dubai in general. We stopped along the way to understand spices, tasted lots of great food! We were so full with deliciousness throughout in restaurants that we would never be able to find on our own (and also not know what to order!). Our guide was excellent in her detail to attention and just offered really fun company!

We were a family of 6 and we are all still talking about how great this tour was! Our guide Pri was so fun, kind and patient and answered all of our questions in immense detail. We hopped from restaurant to restaurant, each setting better than the one before and ate so many amazing dishes. There was a lot of discussion and we came out learning so much. Tour, history, life in Dubai, culture and local food all packed in one in this fantastic tour! Kudos!

Great Experience!

Great tour, lots of delicious food and lots of history were shared. Pri was friendly and very knowledgeable of the dishes she proudly showed us. The highlight for me was the crunchy Luqaimat and the very flavorsome Machboos. It was easy to find the meeting spot, and we left very full! Come with an empty stomach!
