This experience was once for the books as a lifestyle photographer.I got some great shops and learned a lot. The tour guide definitely had some jokes under his belt. The driver was very polite. I wish I knew some radio stations out here because the ride was quite (Which I never mind). During tour when we went on the boat to the silk market cause a little anxiety because I can’t swim but like being on big boats. The other assistance the tour guide was very comforting and asked to take pictures to keep my mind of the size of the boat. The boat ride ended up being great.

Our tour guide, Tawseef, was awesome. My husband and I had the best time going into the Old Dubai and going through all the Souqs. Tawseef was great explaining the culture and history of the Emirates. It was an eye opener for us. He also gave us tips on how to shop in the souqs, which was very helpful. We enjoyed taking the Abra across the Dubai creek. We enjoyed the juices (coconut and orange, both fresh), and the little chicken and vegetarian snacks. My husband and I returned to the souqs at a later date and remembered the tips Tawseef gave us. We also took the Abra again across the bridge. It was a great tour!! Highly recommend it if its your first time in Dubai!!

I was picked up on time from my hotel and they had a couple more stops to make before we arrived to meet our guide. The meeting place was a general one as they had many different walking tours leaving from that location. Our guide Mohammed, checked us in and then we were off. He is a very charming, handsome and funny man. I enjoyed listening to him as much as I enjoyed looking at him. :-) He taught me so many different things about the culture, food and things in general. He also asked us a lot of questions, and to my surprise, we really didn't know The Arabs as we should. So it definitely was a lesson for me and an eye opener, so thank you Mohammed. We went to the souks, both for spices and jewelry. The spices were the most interesting to me. I loved it here, but very crowded. The guides seem to go the same vendor, so it does get a bit tricky to navigate. We stopped for a rest and Mohammed got us small bites to eat along with some very strong tea and we stopped to get some coconut water and sugar cane as refreshments as we tackled the heat. It was great. The time of year I did this tour was hot. If you plan on going in the hot season, please dress comfortably. Proper walking shoes, sunblock, a hot and sunglasses is highly recommended. Be prepared to make purchases wherever Mohammed takes you to get any deals or bargains. He knows everyone and everyone knows him and he will give you great recommendations. This tour isn't for young children. Again, would totally do again. One minor thing, it said small group, this group was about 25 deep, nothing small about that and it took away from going into places and trying to do things. A smaller scale would have been perfect. Also, please tip your guides. I am not sure how many from our group tipped him, but I would highly recommend you tipping them. Thank you Mohammed and I'll see you next year! Keep up the wonderful job that you are doing.

Superb Souks Tour

The entire tour was superb and Mohammed the guide was the best in the business. Explained everything really clearly and encouraged questions. The value was also excellent. There was a chance to taste Arabic coffee among other drinks, there were tasters along the way including traditional dates and chocolate. The street food samples were delicious. The souks were also great, especially the spice market. This trips is a must do if your wanting to do an old Dubai and souks tour.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about Dubai & Emirati history and culture, especially if its your first trip there. There were food & drink tastings, Souk shopping breaks, a ride on the Abra across the creek, and the guide, Mohammad, was so knowledgeable & friendly. Such a great tour.
