    We were soo fortunate to have Mahmoud Ahmed as our guide. He is such a wealth of knowledge and so enthusiastic about sharing the history of his, so rare to find, native Dubai. The tour started in the old city, went passed the souks where we tried the local delicacies, some time to shop around and then back at the souk. Highly recommend

    This was a very informative and cultural tour. If you want to learn about how Dubai and the UAE became the city and country they are now, I highly recommend this tour! Mahmoud is a very knowledgeable, kind, and patient tour guide and his knowledge of the Old Dubai, markets and history is well worth the price. I especially recommend this tour if you are on your first days in the UAE to learn about Dubai’s past, so that you can better appreciate this present and future!

    Excellent tour, we had never been to Dubai so was a little wary of touring the city on our own. Our guide was polite, kind, knowledgeable and didn’t laugh at our silly ignorant questions. The street food was excellent and plenty of cold drinks were provided. This tour was superb value for money, would 100% recommend
