Excellent knowledge and a well versed guide

Had a fantastic time with Mohammad as he explained the cultural background of Dubai from religion to historical events. We were even able to partly customise the tour to suit our preferences which was flexible. A highly recommended tour.

Excellent guide - We had a brilliant time

This was an Excellent Tour. If you want to know more about the histore of Dubai, the histore of Islam...and want to know more about the culture. This is the tour for you. Mohammed is a brilliant and humoristisk tourguide and he is a great storyteller. Thanks for answering all our questions...I know We had many ...

Old Dubai Culture, History and Souks Walking Tour Reviewed by Christina, 02/13/2019

Absolutely must go to better understand the beautiful local culture!

The event was so elegantly organised in the midst of a beautiful hall! The hosts explained the local way of life as well as the sensible meanings behind their culture. Visitors can ask any questions, even those that would be difficult to ask in normal circumstances. This is an event that I will definitely go again just to ask more questions and enjoy the same from other visitors.

Highly recommended. Learned a lot about Emirati culture.

We were a little late as arrived via metro and taxi. Taxi driver unsure of location even though we had address in english and Arabic (driver may have been from a different ethnic background?). Would be good if clear instruction how to get to the cultural centre via metro and walking... thanks.

Dubai: Emirati Cultural Breakfast Experience Reviewed by Amelia, 11/15/2018

An excellent and educational afternoon with an exquisite guide.

Our guide, Mohammed, was an absolute delight. Knowledgeable, witty - basically the go to person for any questions or clarifications one may have on culture, people, places and things in Dubai. One was made to feel at ease from the get go. Having him guide us through the souks was essential given his knowledge and bargaining skills. On the whole a very pleasant afternoon. Thanks for everything Mohammed.
