This was great fun. Lets face it, most history in Dubai has been erased and replaced with very modern bling. The little that remains gets good coverage on this walking tour, the gold souk, the spice market, the clothing and textile markets, the abra boat across the river, the camel restaurant with really unexpectedly yummy burgers and kebabs the trip notes say a snack, but this was a dinner feast, with a great informative guide - really fun evening

This is a very informative tour that guides you through the old sections of Dubai. The spice and gold markets are both very interesting, the boat ride was fun and we ended up eating dinner not just sweets as advertised at a very authentic local restaurant where we sampled camel. Our guide, Mohammad, was fantastic. My only criticisms are that it was unclear where we were to meet the metro station is large and there is both a manned and unmanned ticket booth and there is a lot of walking. We walked at least five miles so this may not be appropriate for less hearty travelers.

The guide was excellent and if you want to understand and experience the real Dubia do this tour. It's not a shopping tour, if you want to browse and shop you are better off coming back, there is a lot to see on the tour so it's best to keep moving, The guide clearly loved Dubai and was keen to shre his knowledge and answer questions. For the first time In my life I questioned, briefly, if democracy really was that important. The women's museum is small and worth looking at. There was one couple and myself on the tour and we all agreed this was the best tour of Dubai if you want to find out what it's like to be a local. The Dhow ride was lovely and the dinner very tasty. I'm so glad I chose this tour.

This was great way to get the non-tourist experience in Dubai and find out that it more than just a Vegas in Arabia . Our guide was really knowledgeable and passionate about his home town. It was a bit of a hike and still quite warm even in the Dubai evening; so dress lightly and wear comfortable shoes.
The tour ends at the Burj Khalifa just as it starts to close, so if you want the trip up just ask the guide to speed though your less interested areas to get there a little earlier (be sure to book the ascent in advance - there are big queues)
Having a local to guide you through minimises the local traders' harassment and shows you where and how to avoid the tourist traps. I suggest you do this tour at the beginning of your Dubai trip.
There is no real time to shop along the way but our guide gave us valuable advice on how and where to buy gold trinkets afterwards.

This tour was a fantastic way to start our time in Dubai. We learnt the history and the culture of this amazing town. The guides were extremely helpful and knowledgable. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn about the old and the new of Dubai.

We started our holiday off with this tour which was a smart choice as we got to see the local ways and see other sites other then the usual Dubai attractions.

The guide was good, but we feel we did not receive value for our money. We just walked through the souk. We were interested in visiting the Women museum, but it was closed on the Sunday. If we were aware of that we would have booked it on another day. In the evening you cannot see your surroundings that well.
