One of the best experiences I had in Dubai. Visit is as described in the package details, pick-up from hotel was smooth, Mohamad is very knowledgeable as for Dubai’s past, present and their link to the future. I enjoyed the different souks tours, and the gustatory experience in each one of them.

Muhammad has a pleasant personality and was very knowledgeable. He took a lot of time to answer any queries from the tourists the tour was long and involved lots of walking; good pair of walking shows recommended. Great all round tour of old dubai.

This is a must do activity for visitors to Dubai! Muhammad, our tour guide was the best! There were stops to authentic souks to smell spices/perfumes, sample food and drinks and learn so much about Muslim and Old Arabian culture. Loved it!

Muhammad was great. Very funny, personable and informative. Recommend doing this on your first day to truly understand the culture of Dubai.

Had a great experience! Our guide tauseef was informative and detailed in explaining history as well as shopping tips for us!
