David_D, 29-09-2022
We really loved this small group tour!
Our guide Hemza was very friendly, informative and provided us many useful tips for shopping in the souk. At the end of the tour, he even brought us to a good jewelry store and helped us to get a good price!
This was our favorite tour in Dubai!
Merci Hemza !
Hamzi is the best
ElizabethMeng, 29-09-2022
This was a highlight of our Dubai visit. We were taken to see the old town, learning of the way of life as it was and as it is today. Hamzi was kind and considerate, the heat was oppressive and he took that into account. He kept the group moving along while taking the time to share his experience and knowledge. Highly recommend this tour for those who wish to get away from the glitz and glamour of downtown.
My favorite tour in Dubai
Melissa_G, 28-09-2022
I signed up for this tour thinking it would be short and a simple way to spend my last in Dubai. I truthfully did not have many expectations coming in. I was incredibly blown away by how much fun I had. Hamza was our guide and he was everything you could want and more. Hamza was so personable and friendly, you feel that the moment he introduces himself. He was funny and so knowledgeable and really brought this city to life: past, present and future. On a personal note, I felt a bit ill from the heat and needed a break. Hamza noticed immediately that something was wrong and went above and beyond to take care of me and make sure my health and safety were a priority during the remainder of the tour. That level of care and attention to his guests is to be treasured. Hamza conversed with everyone on the tour - he really took the time and effort to get to know his guests. I had the opportunity to speak with other guides from this company and they are just as wonderful. You will LOVE this tour.
Great tour

Mohamed was a fantastic tour guide. Very informative. He presented history, culture, and other things in an informative way and with a great sense of humor. He even told us how to bargain at the Souks and gave us ideas for reasonable prices to pay.
They gave us a choice from a variety of juices and falafel for lunch. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you Mohamed!!
We love you Mohamed.
aliciapF1120UQ, 29-09-2022
Mohamed taught us so much history that we later came to find out was so imperative to the rest of our stay. Definitely something you want to do in the beginning. You'll be amazed with all you learn and experience. Hamza is wonderful as well and paired up they are an unbeatable team of guides.
Thank you guys for enriching us with your history, and wisdom.
Amazing Tour with Mohamee
birgit s, 22-12-2022
We had an amazing tour of old Dubai and the souks thanks to our great guide Mohammed. The tour was close to 4 hours long but kept our three kids highly entertained. We loved trying the delicious street food, the freshly squeezed juices (pomegranate was our family’s favorite !) and the local coffee ! This tour is a must during a Dubai visit.
The best we have done in Dubai
arielsX1223ZU, 22-12-2022
The best experience we have had in Dubai so far! Firstly our guide was brilliant & light-hearted, all whilst informing us of the history of the UAE, the culture & religion. He gave the most useful tips & tricks for each of the Souks we visited (prices we should be paying etc.). I highly recommend this Experience for all visiting Dubai! Thank you :)
Excellent chilled tour with Mohamed
emanuelcK3198HM, 22-12-2022
Very nice and chill tour in the old town of Dubai and the Souqs. It was a last minute booking and it made me spend a very good morning around with good company, and the guide Mohammed was excellent, very friendly, he told us a lot of insights and tips about the people and culture.
Very nice tour!
NK_100000, 21-12-2022
Very nice tour. The guide is super friendly and shared lots of knowledge of local customs and history as well as local prices at the markets, which made our souk experience more than fare.
Highly recommended
atirosh, 21-12-2022
Excellent guide, shows another aspect of Dubai before it was known for its high rises. Highly recommended!
Magic Aladdin Tour!
Rosalba_B, 11-01-2023
Our tour guide was Hamza and he was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about sharing the culture, history, politics and religion of the Emirates! He was very good at keeping our big group interested, engaged and enjoy our time together....he had a good sense of humour too! The food tasting was generous and delicious. He also gave us good shopping tips when shopping at the souks! A great tour that I would recommend!
Insightful tour of Dubai old town, nice way to spend a few hours.
Dylan_H, 10-01-2023
We are so glad to have come across this day tour. My wife and I were just transiting in Dubai for a couple of days and didn't fancy spending all the time in the air-conditioned shopping malls. I highly recommend doing this tour if you want to learn something about Dubai and the region.

Our guide was Hamza. He was very chatty and shared so much with us about the culture, history, economics and current affairs of Dubai, UAE, and the Arab world in general. It was very useful for folks like us who have very limited knowledge of the Middle East. We didn't leave Dubai as typical tourists who only know about the Palm Jumeirah, Burj Khalifa, and Dubai Mall. Excellent guide and a very interesting tour.
Beautiful Experience
REVATHY_K, 10-01-2023
The tour guide shared in dept knowledge of the souks, creek and old Dubai which was extremely beautiful to experience.
This is a tour that I won't forget!
V8894FCandrewt, 10-01-2023
Mohamed is one of the best tour guides that I have come across! He is super friendly and he spent most of the day answering our questions and instilling knowledge about the history and current practices in Dubai. It was raining and not the best weather but he did the best he could under those circumstances and didn't cancel the tour. Really enjoyed the food and appreciated the cultural experience.
I would definitely recommend it
annesI6571MC, 10-01-2023
Mohamed was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about his area. He explained us more about the history of Dubai and was so patient with us , plus he gave my baby a gift by the end of our tour that made him feel very happy. I would definitely recommend it. Higley recommended
Great tour and great guide
ahug186370, 26-01-2023
Mohamed was a great guide and we really enjoyed learning more about the historic area of Dubai, and appreciated his advice and tips in the Souks. Despite some inclement weather we had a great time and would recommend to anyone.
If you are in Dubai you should not miss this tour!
leaaE7104MQ, 25-01-2023

Culture tour
B6697OQhassana, 25-01-2023
One of the most authentic tours I have been on. You really get to see and learn about the history and culture of Dubai. Our guide Hamza took his time, explained and interacted with everyone on the tour. Sharing information about the culture, old buildings, and giving us tips on how to negotiate like locals in the Souk! Thank you Hamza for making this trip that much more pleasant.
Fascinating tour with a super guide
Betsy_S, 25-01-2023
Hazma provided an excellent tour with lots of insights into daily life in Dubai. He was willing to answer any question and had lots of information to share. I would highly recommend this tour to people who want to learn more about old Dubai, the souks, and daily life in Dubai. Thank you Hazma for making this tour memorable.
Fascinating tour
Tal J, 24-01-2023
It was great to see an older and more traditional side of Dubai that isn’t advertised much to the outside world, and Adham was a great guide. Highly recommended.
