The tour through the old town of Dubai was really interesting and informative. Our tour guide Muhammad was really friendly, reliable and could answer all the questions we had. He even offered kindly to take pictures of us and seemed to have a lot of fun with it, which I have never experienced with a tour guide before. I would definitely recommend it since we learned a lot about the culture, the customs and the life in Dubai!

A nicely paced tour by a knowledgeable and friendly guide. Others with us had children and Mohammed did a nice job of keeping them engaged.
