A Recent Review of this tour

Barti did a great job of sharing his insights into the history and culture of Dubai. He was very knowledgable and his tour reflected that. He showed us some "off the beaten path" locations and food options, as well as having cold drinks available for us all along the way of this walking tour. We really enjoyed the tour and came away with a good impression of Dubai through Barti's efforts.
