Absolutely must go to better understand the beautiful local culture!

The event was so elegantly organised in the midst of a beautiful hall! The hosts explained the local way of life as well as the sensible meanings behind their culture. Visitors can ask any questions, even those that would be difficult to ask in normal circumstances. This is an event that I will definitely go again just to ask more questions and enjoy the same from other visitors.

Highly recommended. Learned a lot about Emirati culture.

We were a little late as arrived via metro and taxi. Taxi driver unsure of location even though we had address in english and Arabic (driver may have been from a different ethnic background?). Would be good if clear instruction how to get to the cultural centre via metro and walking... thanks.

Really interesting tour-a definite must for your list of things to do

Although it was difficult to find - when we got there it was definitely worth the stress of finding the location. We learnt so much about local culture, and came away enlightened. If you are interested in cultural history, this is a great tour to take.

Amazing experience. You will learn a lot for the culture of Emiratis

It was an amazing experience! Very informative and amazing local food! Time only disadvantage was that we all had a lot of questions and we didn’t have enough time to try local dresses so we didn’t do his. But the overall experience was great!

Incredible, highly recommend a must do when visiting Dubai

We enjoyed the Heritage tour so much that we stayed on for lunch. An inspiring experience with fun included! Well done to the team @ SMCCU , we learned so much from you & count this as our highlight of visiting Dubai. Keep up the good work.
