Our host Muhammad is very knowledgeable about the history of Dubai. He encouraged us to ask many questions and could answer anything. He was very friendly and a great host. He also helped us with bargaining with the souk stall owners. Great experience!

Bilal takes you to the Dubai we have not seen. the city has recreated it's past - its journey to the origins of the city, walk through the quaint lanes of gold souk and spice bazaar - a contrast to the shimmering glittering Dubai of today. You will enjoy this trip if you are not a typical shopping mall addict.

Muhammad is super nice, it was a nice tour. Wish we had spent more time learning about the historical houses we visited, but overall very nice tour and would definitely do it again.

Muhammad was a very nice guide answering to all our questions. Our kids aged between 11 and 15 were all captivated by the stories he hand and asked a lot of questions about local culture. He helped us with arrangements for a safari trip in the dessert which we are looking forward to. Thank you sir! Kids say: he was nice, he helped us bargain in local stores, great sense of humor!

Muhammad is very nice and helped us haggle in the souq! He's very open to answering your questions and has a deep knowledge about the city.

Absolutely brilliant tour with Muhammad. My partner and I were fortunate enough to be the only ones in the morning session and this roughly 2.5-3 hour tour has proven to be the highlight of our time in Dubai so far. Muhammad is both very affable and extremely knowledgeable and did a fantastic job of answering all of our (many) questions about the country and its culture. This is an absolute must do if you're in Dubai, even if for only a few days.
