Definitely an insightful, educational, and much-recommended tour. I traveled with my family and we were shown different sights around Dubai. Our guide, Mohamed Ali was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the place. We learned a lot about the history, culture, food, and place. We were also given ample time to explore the souks. Overall a wonderful experience. I definitely recommend this tour
