This was a wonderful, wonderful tour of the souks and the creek and Old Dubai in general. We stopped along the way to understand spices, tasted lots of great food! We were so full with deliciousness throughout in restaurants that we would never be able to find on our own (and also not know what to order!). Our guide was excellent in her detail to attention and just offered really fun company!

We were a family of 6 and we are all still talking about how great this tour was! Our guide Pri was so fun, kind and patient and answered all of our questions in immense detail. We hopped from restaurant to restaurant, each setting better than the one before and ate so many amazing dishes. There was a lot of discussion and we came out learning so much. Tour, history, life in Dubai, culture and local food all packed in one in this fantastic tour! Kudos!

the meals in the restaurants are very good, with very welcoming staff, that's why I rate it 4 stars. on the other hand, the guide made us visit old Dubai at a run, we saw nothing and we were unable to take any photos. the dessert camel milk ice cream in a small pot that we ate while walking at a run. so that in the end she calls us a taxi on the side of the road and throws us in it. she should have told us that the tour was over and asked if we wanted to take a taxi or enjoy some free time. a bitter taste for this service, a shame. frankly I do not recommend it. the platform should pay attention to the guide she uses, her name is Pry, an American. who should change jobs, because not at all professional, she was in a hurry to finish her performance to go home.
