This was a really good cultural experience! We ended up enjoying the hospitality of our Emirati friends and learning a lot about the Arab culture. It was a good experience worth the money!
Fantastic experience, would definitely recommend this to anyone going to Dubai.
Think this is great for someone who wants more insight into life in the Emirates. Come prepared with questions, bc the guest guide the convo. I would have liked our host to given use a quick overview of culture at the beginning, but other than that this is a great first stop! Explore old Dubai after
There really isn't any Emirati food. Talking about how they would use their hands to eat was interesting but not what I expected.
This is absolutely awesome I learned so much about the culture. The food was good too! The presenter was funny
I booked the lunch tour. The food was good and the conversation with a woman in traditional clothing was very interesting. Any question could be asked about the local cultural practices. I would recommend this tour for a better understanding of Emirati life.
