Full description
Start your 4-hour food tasting tour with a meet and greet with your guide at the meeting point at 9:30 AM. Your tour guide will direct you to the first destination of the trip; an Egyptian restaurant. You can pick a few bites of the most flavored Egyptian fatayr (pies) and falafal. Your second stop will be to experience Lebanese and Syrian tastes where you can taste the true juicy Kunafa, a famous Arabic dessert.

Following that you will depart by metro to the Al Fahidi Metro Station. Once you get off the metro station you will walk towards the Al Fahidi Historical District. On the way you will enjoy a quick stop at a local Indian restaurant where you can enjoy some bites of India sambosa.

Following that you will reach the Al Fahidi District to explore the narrow pathways and experience local Emirati coffee (Gahwa), an Emirati Breakfast tray balaleet, molasses dates, cheddar cheese, melted cheese, baked beans, watermelon jam, dango, and bajella. Following that you will walk to a textile souk where you will enjoy the beauty of the traditional fabrics of endless colors.

Once you are done exploring the textile souk, you'll take an abra ride to the other side of Dubai Creek where your tour will eventually come to an end and your tour guide will bid you farewell. You can explore the spice souks and breathe in the aroma of the spices in the area. You can also stroll through the spice and gold souk to experience the flavorful and rich sights of Old Dubai.
