This was a really good cultural experience! We ended up enjoying the hospitality of our Emirati friends and learning a lot about the Arab culture. It was a good experience worth the money!

Think this is great for someone who wants more insight into life in the Emirates. Come prepared with questions, bc the guest guide the convo. I would have liked our host to given use a quick overview of culture at the beginning, but other than that this is a great first stop! Explore old Dubai after

There really isn't any Emirati food. Talking about how they would use their hands to eat was interesting but not what I expected.

This should be the first tour you do. Definitely worth the time. Learned so much about the Muslim/Emirati beliefs,culture and tradition. A very enjoyable and welcoming experience. The world would be so much better if we all took the time to share honest conversation over a great meal.

I booked the lunch tour. The food was good and the conversation with a woman in traditional clothing was very interesting. Any question could be asked about the local cultural practices. I would recommend this tour for a better understanding of Emirati life.
