Private tour of Old Dubai

This is the second time I use Jose as a guide in Dubai. First when I came as a tourist and now that I live here in the UAE. Jose is so knowledgeable that everytime I learn a little more about Dubai and the history of the UAE. This tour is particularly interesting if you want to learn about the traditions and customs of this country, as well as the history all the way back to the original tribes who ruled this land. Jose will also walk you through the Spice Souk and explains the use of the various spices. He can tell you where to buy the right things for the right price.

I believe every tourist who comes to Dubai should take a break from the "bling" of the city and take the time to revisit the past. What you'll learn through Jose highlights even more the incredible changes that this country achieved in the past 60 years.
Old Dubai and a new friend

As we walked through Old Dubai, making stops from time to time, Jose gave us the perfect explanations not only of what we saw but also about the local traditions. Jose also answered all our questions very clearly. He told us about small details that make things more understandable. He knows where to stop to have a quick typical snack (maybe we would never had stopped there on our own). He knows which shop in the souk will provide us with the best welcome, A really nice person with a warm smile, a good sense of humour, a great culture.which he shares so gently. Un grand merci.
