    Highly recommend for anyone visiting Dubai to get some truly local insight of its history. Orlina, our local guide was sharing lot’s of her insights and answering any questions we had during our walk. Totally personable and we truly enjoyed the one-on-one w/ a local one just won’t get in a conventional city tour.

    The tour was amazing, strolling through the old heritage district, stt galleries, coffee museum and zouk (cloth, spices and gold) was a once in a lifetime experience. Our guide was fantastic, very caring and gave us important local hints on the culture and explained everything in great detail. We were able to customize the route and visit all shops we wanted always feeling safe and in good neighborhood. Always again!

    A very successful afternoon with many impressions. The trip is perfect for two. I recommend a 5pm tour in May. Before that, 40 degrees are too hot. We got interesting insights into the history of Dubai and were given a great tour of the souks. The guide was very nice and even explained how we act. Thanks very much!
