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!
