    Great tour! Only reason why I've given 3 stars is due to the fact that we were taken to shops charging very high prices for fake designer gear and also the fact we weren't given fresh juice despite stating this would be provided.

    Hesham was awesome. He was energetic and very knowledgeable about the history of Dubai. Made great points about the development of the city. Boat ride was enjoyable.

    We had a pleasure to participate in Old Dubai tour guided by our guide Abdullah. Not only Abdullah had a great sense of humour, but he also gave us numerous insights about the city, history, Arab culture and traditions. We also had a chance to visit the market and get the good deals - Abdullah gave us "true" prices of the goods :) The tour is a must go for anyone visiting Dubai, especially in the first days of your trip, since you will be much more aware of the local culture. 100% recommendations.

    This was a great way to explore “old” Dubai with the family. Our guide Abdulla was fantastic and provided so many insights into the lives of Emiratis. We would highly recommend this tour
