Very relaxed and delicious meal with a knowledgeable guide into the culture and answered all questions fully. The meal was very Indian as opposed to the more traditional Arabic which what I would expect from that part of the world. Very interesting conversations about being environmentally friendly yet we were served water in small containers made of plastic. To take food away(which was fabulous to be able to do this!!) we were given foil containers and plastic bags to take food away(which was fabulous!!) maybe everyone could be told to bring their own multiple use containers if they want to be able to take food away. I highly recommend this activity as a first insight into the culture...but it did leave me wanting to know more and with no pointers as to what I can do to have more access to the local people to learn more about their culture.

Dubai: Cultural Lunch at The Sheikh Mohammed Center Reviewed by

It took a while to get going, think it did not start till mid afternoon once all had been picked up from various hotels. It was not perfect listening to the commentary in both German and English, would have preferred an English audio. May have been better to stop at Al Fahidi rather than the Gold Souk, a more interesting area. However trip on the abra boat was good, and visits to the Dubai Museum and other stops also good.

Thanks a lot for your concern, it was very interesting experience, Mrs. Ameera our lovely guide did her best to make our tour wonderful and full with happiness, I greatly recommended such tour program which will be more remarkable if your tour guide is Mrs. Ameera (GOD bless her) with all my respect

They came to pick us from the hotel, transfer us to our tour bus (the timeing hasn't been the best). After departing from Burj al Arab we had the best guide, both in english and german. From there we had a nice tour. Drop-off at the hotel was included as well. Good value for money.

Although the Tour started late, it still incorporated the allocated time and we saw all the advertised sites and was given ample free time. The tour guide I found was extremely informative and made it very enjoyable. As first timers in Dubai, I would recommend this tour.
