Tour in Italian language, our guide was Mido, a nice Egyptian boy with excellent Italian, he told anecdotes and stories about the Emirati civilization without ever being boring, he also held the attention of my 8 year old daughter who in the following days remembered with pleasure the anecdotes and the story told by Mido. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who goes to Dubai and wants to understand the origins of one of the most futuristic metropolises of today. Thank you Midoooooo you are the best!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Hamza today. It was not as expected, but better. Hamza was very knowledgeable not only about his own country and culture but also worldwide. The information was provided in a humorous yet insightful manner. He made everyone on the tour feel as one. We learnt a lot about Dubai as questions were welcomed and we were given great tips regarding surviving the markets! Totally recommend.

Saif was an amazing tour guide, so knowledgeable and friendly! He touched on various aspects of Islamic culture in a friendly, funny way and we learned many things there. Going to the old house was lovely and the trip across to the markets was a brilliant experience. The spice market was the favourite with us! Would well recommend this trip.

It was a great way to discover Dubai upclose. The pace was good and our guide Saif gave great insights into Dubai and UAE history and culture, and also good shopping tips! All with good humor. Definitely recommend

Francis is a great guide. Despite the bad weather, we had a great time. He is very helpful, very kind. Thank you Francis
