The guided tour was amazing! Paolo was an amazing tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and delivered the information we needed. I was able to get some great spice to take back home. He was in touch with the locals, and that meant a lot to us. Will recommend your company any day of the week. Great work!

Thanks for the amazing experience. Our guide Ramadan was very enthusiastic and made our trip to Old city wonderful as it is. The traditional food, boat travel, and the market trip was really interesting. We would highly recommend this trip. Good luck to our informative and kind tour guide!

The food we made at Alkhayma with Chef Lamin was fantastic and the experience was very hands on through different cooking styles. The whole staff made us feel welcome - would recommend doing this!

Our tour was sensational! The team was super friendly, helpful and even helped us "bargain" in the souk to get the best price. The whole day was a treat! Any time! :-)

Good guides, everything was as it should be and perfectly on time.
