Discover the old-world attractions of Dubai before the oil rush, and explore the Alfahidi district's art galleries, traditional handicrafts, and Arabian coffee ceremonies. Here you will find the charming Coffee Museum, the Arabic Calligraphy Museum, and the Dubai Museum. The old town bustles with souks that offer anything from gold to textile to spices. Indulge in Doner kebabs or falafel sandwiches, then take a breathtaking ride across the creek in a water taxi.
The tour will allow you to immerse yourself in Arabian culture, as you learn more about the Arabic language, and have your name written in a very elaborate Arabic font. You will have a multi-lingual local guide to show you around the historical area and help you negotiate prices at the markets. Plus, you get cold drinks, coffee, if you prefer, and snacks featuring the local delicacies. More importantly, you will meet native Emiratis, who will give you an in-depth look into their history and customs.
Tourists who have tried the tour often describe this trip as the highlight of their Dubai visit. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly, the food is excellent, and the cultural experience is unforgettable.
