What people are saying about Dubai Museum "Al Fahidi Fort"

One of our favorite activities of the entire trip! Mohamed is an amazing guide and will answer all of your questions. I learned so much about the old town architecture, culture, religion, and how to successfully negotiate pricing in the souks. If you plan on shopping the souks this tour is a must! Also, you get to try Arabic coffee, which my husband ended up loving and he does not like coffee! Love that we got to experience new things and learn so much. Thank you Mohamed.

this was the best activity we have done so far during our dubai trip. we learned a lot about the culture, ate wonderfully, and had the opportunity to shop in the souk. but most importantly: we met abdullah, a great guide who gave us valuable tips on everything to do with shopping. He spoke very fluently German and English. We felt very comfortable in the group and can highly recommend this activity!

It is a must to understand this fabulous city (country) and their development. You can also apreciate how inmigrants contribute and live in Dubai, the newest first world city.. Mohamed , the tour guide, did a great job.
