About
Hop aboard our air-conditioned coach to enjoy 4 iconic food tastings, lively stories and vibrant street art across 4 neighborhoods of Old Dubai. Our friendly, knowledgeable guide will take you and an intimate group of 7 to 9 other travelers through neighborhoods that old timers get nostalgic about. We taste herb-packed Palestinian falafels and pepper-spiked hummus in Deira, Emirati shrimp pilaf and date crepes in Bur Dubai, Keralite-style bread and stew in Karama and Iranian "stone bread" and samovar tea in Jumeirah 1. This tour has been curated to be far more than just an eating experience. Gain an insight into the places where we grew up and how they’ve changed through the decades, some with splashes of artistic graffiti. Engage with our passionate guide who is armed with stories of the foods being featured, and is eager to share her insider tips on how to experience the city as locals do.

Fun food tour
Sep 2019
We had a lovely time on our food tour. Our guide Nahla was excellent and very informative. We saw parts of Dubai we have never been to. You got to eat street food we would never stop and eat or think of going to these areas. Totally safe and lovely. On our next stop in Dubai we now know where to venture off to for a lovely more traditional meal. We also went to some lovely restaurants too, which I look forward to going to in the future. We also will be looking forward to do little india tour next time...The staff respond quickly so if you have any question or concerns do contact them they are great....

Thanks everyone for the time you take searching and organising these tours.

Aug 2019 • Friends
We had a lovely evening in Dubai tasting a range of delicious Middle eastern foods in authentic restaurants. The falafel were light and divine, the fish was heavenly, the curry and associated papadoms and chutneys were great and the Iranian bread and tea delightful.
Thank you Tanya for a fun filled and very educational evening.

Amazing Food Tour
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Dubai. Tanya was a wonderful guide. She was knowledgeable and entertaining, and her food selections were absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the other members of the tour as well and quickly felt like we were traveling with good friends. I highly recommend the tour and will do it again if we are ever back in Dubai.

Wealth of Knowledge and Amazing Insight into Hidden Gems of Dubai
Jun 2019 • Couples
This was a wonderful Food Tour where we discovered Street Eats and some hidden gems of Dubai with a full understanding of the history of the neighborhood, foods and cultures that make Dubai a unique and historic place to visit. Loved hearing how the cultures weave into each other and how neighbourhoods are changing and developing as well as sampling a variety of delicious eats. Highly recommend and will certainly try more of these walking tours after the summer.
