Very cool experience! Laura was a fantastic guide and told us so many interesting things to take home and to tell! I also really liked the organization they had, everything was prepared down to the smallest detail, they even gave us dusters to cover us up given the rain! Highly recommended if you are looking for a particular experience in a completely different Dubai than that of the huge skyscrapers!

Tauseef was an amazing tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable and had answers to any questions we had. Very organised and we were always told what was next. Food was also amazing and the trips on how to bargain at the markets!! Definitely recommend to anyone wishing to learn about Dubai’s history.

We had such a great time! Adham was a fantastic tour guide he was very well knowledged and was so helpful. He gave us enough time to walk around and have private time as well as within the group. Would highly recommend this tour thank you!

Great experience visiting the old town and bustling market streets. Hamza (the tour guide) was very informative and made the tour factual, unusual and interesting. The boat trip was excellent albeit brief. Would recommend this

All top-super guide! Just all around a successful day!
