    Mansoor was a wonderful guide!! He answered every question we had and was very knowledgeable on all kinds of subjects. He and his tour were very fun, and he knew all the right shops to visit (and helped us bargain!) I would recommend this experience for visitors.

    We had the pleasure of experiencing an exclusive and highly personalized tour of Dubai’s historic parts last evening. Our guide made it an incredibly informative journey, sharing insights that greatly enriched our understanding of the area. Visiting the gold and spice souks was a highlight, and throughout, we felt perfectly looked after by our friendly and approachable guide. This was a unique and individualized experience that we highly recommend.
