Journey with us in this two-hour action packed historical walking tour where it all began. We will guide you through the middle east markets, traditional houses, and historic by lanes of the old city. You will go back in time to see what life was like on the sleepy banks of a pearling and fishing village. The tour includes a visit to a Fort, a boat ride across the creek, and visits to the famous textile, spice and gold souks (markets).

Along the way, you will hear the story of the men and women who transformed this regional trading outpost into the global juggernaut that it is today. Elements of Emirati culture will be seen up-close as we explained the nuanced ways that the traditions still thrive.

Far away from the glass skyscrapers of modern Dubai, this tour will introduce you to the real, and fascinating, heart and soul of the town. You simply cannot miss this side of Dubai!

Our favorite part was the old district and the coming together many religious cultures in one area. We loved Dubai through the eye of the guide and we can recommend this tour to all visiting Dubai. We had a quick bite to eat at Arabian tea house which was a perfect add on.
