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!

I booked this attraction in the last minute, nevertheless I was warmly welcomed by my guide Maaz Khan. He explained everything related to our tour and beyond, answered all my questions, and made very helpful suggestions, and was very flexible regarding timings and even suggested some hotspots for photos. Maaz gave me some tips on how to deal with sellers in the traditional Spice Market which was incredibly helpful. It was really worth it and I would definitely recommend it. The reception at the restaurant for lunch was very nice, I even went there again for dinner, only to be greeted very warmly. Don't hesitate to book this tour, and if you are lucky you will have Maaz as your guide.
