Pri did a wonderful job of showing me Old Dubai and explaining the rich history that it holds. I did not know much about Dubai before this tour, but left away with understanding its people, culture, and how it was built.

call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the
place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
