Pri our guide was extremely knowledgeable having lived in Dubai for 12 years she was enthusiastic and friendly. The tour was well managed I felt I really learnt about the early years of Dubai. I was a solo traveller and I’ve booked again to take my family. Great value. I can’t recommend this tour highly enough.

Historic Old Dubai & Souk Walking Tour
Dubai is such a futuristic city and I love that but it was wonderful to be guided through part of the old town and the souks with Ricky. His enthusiasm for Dubai is infectious and it was a delightful couple of hours. Highly recommend this tour for a first visit to Dubai.

Getting the Best Deals

There are plenty of deals to be had at the Gold Souk. Before you go, check the current price of gold, as this fluctuates daily. As long as you stick to the shops rather than the street vendors, there’s no need to worry about the authenticity of the gold for sale; the Dubai government maintains strict regulations. Don’t be afraid to shop around a bit before you buy, and remember that friendly haggling is expected—and you can often negotiate a better price by paying in cash.
