I work with very high end clientele who frequently travel to Dubai for business and leisure. They expect nothing less than the best that this city has to offer. Pri and Ricky have organized exceptional walking tours with a variety of options to choose from for my clients. They keep it fun, engaging and insightful. They also organized Corporate Tours for my office teams and we just can't recommend it enough! Each member also received a souvenir in the end which made it all the more special. Thank you Pri for helping me keep all my business stakeholders happy :)

Orlina was an excellent guide. We had a very enjoyable tour and learned a lot about old Dubai. The tour lasts 2 hours and included a lovely little boat trip across the creek. The Souks are well worth a visit.

This is a great opportunity to see the contrast from what Dubai was only 50 years ago to what it is today. The tour begins in the older section of Dubai which has been converted into a living museum of sorts, and progresses through and across the Dubai Creek and through the Souks ending at the famous gold souk of Dubai. Lina, our tour guide was excellent. She was very friendly and knowledgeable and kept the tour at a comfortable pace. It was a private tour and she was particularly attentive to keep our teenager engaged and interested. She filled in all the historical details and introduced us to the UAE philosophy of tolerance and coexistence. She guided us through the souks and made us feel very comfortable and safe throughout the visit. I highly recommend this tour and, if you can, request Lina as the tour guide. She will not fail to impress you.

We were extremely pleased with the Old Dubai Walking Tour. Our guide Pri was excellent and very knowledgeable about the area we visited. She was also very personable and managed our time very well so we could see all that the tour described. We never felt pressured. She spoke fluent English and was very easy to communicate with her. She gets 5 stars in our book and we would recommend her and request her as a guide the next time we visit Dubai. Afton Pereira
