Great tour, great guide, Mohamed. Saw all the sites including Abra crossing of the creek.
Was over priced for spices in the old town. They will start with a very high price. Be wary when dropped off there.

The tour was very informative with just the right amount of interesting facts about historical Dubai thanks to our great guide, Chamil from Sri Lanka. It is well organized tour with lots of stops. The tour organizer did a high quality service in every aspect, especially we are grateful to them as we left our camera in the bus and they brought it to us back the following morning to the hotel! This is something which we will never forget. Thank you!
