A local's guide to Dubai's hidden gems & bustling souks
We'll start the day with a meet and greet at your hotel followed by a drive to the streets of old Dubai, where we hop off and wander by foot through its bustling souks and alleys. My goal is to take you through a journey of tales to show you just how the small Arab village became a top destination city throughout the sands of time. We'll stop by many enchanting sights and witness the city's dynamic history woven by its people. We'll learn about the city's leadership and people as well as Emirati hospitality and traditions. We'll enjoy one of Dubai's best eats where we can eat, drink tea, and be merry. We'll then hop back in a car and head back to your hotel, before we bid farewell to a lovely day.
