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!

When traveling to new cities, we always look for some type of walking tour. Was pleasantly surprised to find Dubai by Foot. Orlina, our guide, was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable about all the history and sites. And Orlina has a fun personality that made this tour perfect. Booking, payment and pre communication went very smoothly. Highly recommend!

I didn’t have any particular reference for Dubai By Foot tours, but booked anyways- what a surprise. I received an email with absolutely all the details I needed including a picture of meeting point and of our guide. Orlina was fantastic! Very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the explanations, we could ask questions and we could see she knows what she does. Also it felt very relaxed, instead of a rushed experience. We really enjoyed it and the other couple that was there too!
