The tour provides a good introduction to old Dubai and Dubai culture. We enjoyed the way the Pri, our guide, conducted the tour. It was a little rushed towards the end, but fun overall.More

Fun walking tour of old Dubai: Bastakiya, coffee museum, art center, Dubai Museum, abra trip across the river and several souks. Our guide, Sameh, was very friendly, full of humor and made this tour a delight. My personal highlight of our trip to Dubai!
