I rate this tour 5 stars. I really enjoyed the whole experience. Maaz was an excellent guide. He gave me a thorough overview of UAE and Old Dubai history. He walked me through the historical buildings around the creek, did let me taste typical Arabian snacks including a lovely henna tattoo, then we took the water taxi to cross the creek and visit the souks. I was the only person on the tour and he made me feel comfortable and safe. Firoz, the driver, came to pick me up on time and dropped me off. He was very friendly and patience. Highly recommended, will definitely book another tour with them next time I go to Dubai!

Excellent tour with Maaz today we learnt so much about the history of Dubai he was so informative. It’s well worth doing and such good value for many. Had a visit to the coffee museum, lovely coffee and dates. Tea at the heritage cafe and camel ice cream which was lovely. A boat trip along the creek to the souks, the gold souk was amazing. Thank you Maaz for such a wonderful morning
