Our guide, Mohammed, was fantastic! He was enthusiastic about showing us around his home city of Dubai and able to answer any questions we had-- even recommending a beach to visit the next day. He told us the history of Dubai as we walked and showed us hidden alleyways and places we hadn't found on our own. He accompanied us to the Ramadan feast at the local center and we had a wonderful time! We loved hearing about the culture from a group who was clearly very interested in talking to tourists & visitors and the food was amazing. This experience was the highlight of our trip to Dubai and we'll remember it for years to come. A special thank you to Mohammed, our guide, for making it the best tour possible.

We were only in Dubai for a short period of time so this was a great way to see Dubai with limited time. Our guide Hassan was very passionate about the culture/lifestyle of the emirates
