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.
quite personal authentic meet and meal with local people who are competent in variable questions, special thanks to Abdullah!
Not the easiest place to find so I would recommend getting there early..Other than that it was a good experience, the best way to learn about Dubai. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and are happy to answer any question
I'd really recommend spending time and ideally a meal with the team at the Centre for Cultural Understanding. My mother and I enjoyed a great meal and very interesting conversation with an international group during our visit. Much appreciated, Waleed, thanks again for hosting us.
We did Emirati breakfast. Very tasty and informative, not only about food but also about different aspects of Emirati life. Highly recommendable! Great insight into Emirati culture!
Great environment to learn about Islam, the culture in the UAE, and the food. Ask any question you like, the time goes by fast so come prepared with questions in mind. The food was delicious.
Incredible experience. Full of information about the Emirati culture. The food, coffee and everything was great. The presenter was really easygoing and open to answer any question.
something different while in Dubai , I went to the evening meal . and had a good time, there were only six of us this evening
are host was very open and could ask him anything about Dubai and the UAE, we spoke about crime and punishment , politics and a small number of other topics
I learnt a lot about the way off life in the UAE, had some fantastic Arabic coffee and dates , there was also loads more to eat
if you are looking for something different to to in Dubai I would recommend doing this
the only other thing I would say is to give yourself plenty off time to find the building , as it is a bit hard to find
You should try to fit this in as early as possible during your visit to Dubai. The meal is fine, but the main feature is the introduction to local customs and historical background. The reality is that Dubai depends on tourism and local people accept most of the social blunders and insensitivities of tourists, but it is nice to know how to behave with some consideration towards local mores and to avoid unnecessary offence. One of the appealing aspects of this event is the openness to ask any question as the traditional Arabian and Islamic culture is so different from the West.

This was definitely the best thing I did in Dubai. I felt very welcomed in the Centre which was in the fascinating historical part of Dubai, in a traditional Emirati house. The speaker gave me a real insight into Emirati culture and was happy to answer any questions. The traditional food was delicious, I wish I could have eaten more. I'm still not convinced about the cultural attire for women but it was fun to be able to try it on. A great way to start the day and it was near the Dubai museum and a great area to explore. I would highly recommend this tour and would have done a few more that they offer if I had time.
