This was the best last minute tour I booked! So much information for the old city and history which is what I really wanted. We tried Arabic coffee at the coffee museum, had some camel milk ice cream. Even better that I was picked up from my hotel and dropped back. Couldn’t recommend this tour enough! Thank you 😊

We had an awesome time Maaz showing us the city from his perspective. Giving insights you won't be able to get by yourself. Enjoyed traditional arabic dishes, walked through the narrow alley of old dubai and just had a great time. Thank you very much!! We can absolutely recommend booking this tour.

Thanks so much to Riah! She was a super guide and so informative. We had an awesome time at the old city, souks and a fantastic Arabian brunch at Al Khayma!

I booked this tour at the very last minute, the night before. They were able to accommodate me, including hotel pick up on Palm Jumeirah. My tour guide Maaz was highly knowledgeable and thoughtfully answered my many questions throughout the tour. He always checked in with me to see if I wanted to stop for pictures or if I wanted to go into shops. Maaz took the time to personalize the tour for me, while keeping to the itinerary/schedule. Thanks again, Maaz.

영어 하시면 추천합니다. 현지 상황이나 역사 문화에 대해 자세히 알고 있고 엄청 재밌게 설명해줘요. 소규모 투어라 좋고 사진도 잘 찍습니다. Maaz khan이 두바이에서 만난 가이드 중에 제일 잘 찍어줬어요!! (다른 가이드들은…말을 아낍니다) The tour was amazing. My guide Maaz Khan was super nice and such a wonderful story teller. Very interesting and informative on historic and cultural views of UAE. He’s also a great photographer. I definitely recommend the tour.
