The tour provides great information about history, culture and food that we would not have learned otherwise. The small group helped us to be fully engaged with the guide, who gave us brilliant stories not just about Dubai but the entire region. We spent some time at the souks and the textile market as well. All in all good 2 hours spent.

Dubai By Foot is perfect to get to know Dubai's old town and souks on foot with a very personable and well-informed guide (Dear Pri). You discover corners that you wouldn't see on your own .... You learn a lot about the history and the origins and Pri answers every question patiently. I highly recommend this tour to everyone ....
