This is a great overview tour that gives you a very good overarching sense for the city and the country, the history and the people, the culture the food and the attire. You go through museums and markets and use a boat as transit. Its really fantastic and well priced and well worth the money!

A great tour! Even though I was a 5 mins late, the guide waited for me to start the tour. Their team co-ordinated well from the beginning and answered all queries I had promptly. The tour was great, lot of information and a great humorous guide. It was like a fun walk in old Dubai with my friends. The guide did a great job of keeping everyone engaged throughout.

I keep visiting Dubai for work purposes, but a walking tour was a new concept for me. I decided to give it a try and it was way better than what I had expected to be. It changed my opinion of a how a tour should be. The content and knowledge that the guide shared with us was lovely. I got to know so much about a city which I thought was all about high rise buildings. Bastakiya is a beauty in its own ways. Must visit!

I had a great desire to learn about Dubais authentic culture, see more than just the new parts of town. This walking tour was absolutely perfect. The guide made it feel like we were in town with a few friends and were taking a stroll around. She provided great information about the region, the people and traditions. Truly an amazing tour experience and a must do for anyone going to Dubai.
