    Mahmood very kindly let me rebook my tour despite time to reschedule lapsing on the app. Great little tour, excellent your guide, very friendly with excellent English, he keeps the group's nice and small, unlike some other tour guides I noticed who were having to shout to be heard, so was nice + personal, got to ask questions about history, religion. . .he told us how to haggle, what prices to expect to pay at the markets, otherwise I'm 100% sure we would have overpaid for goods. Watch out for the little fishes in the water as you pull up at the dock in the water taxi. We had some lovely chicken samosas and fresh orange juice too. Only criticism is I wish we'd had an extra 10 mins at each market. . .and time to eat at the little cafe, I'd have been willing to pay a bit more to extend the tour by an hour to do that to be honest, something Mahmood might do in the future perhaps ☺️

    An excellent introduction to the history of Dubai and the architecture and culture of this part of the city. Mahmoud presents his tour so clearly and has friendly manner. He was great with our 8 year old daughter. He showed us places that would have been difficult to find and felt special and authentic. Thank you Mahmoud!

    Very nice to to just stroll through the streets of Old Dubai. Mahmoud was very informative and easy going. His English was excellent. I particularly liked the introduction to all the spices or which I had seen before but not know what they were. Would highly recommend for a relaxed morning tour
