Me and my mum went on the Heritage Tour which typically includes a tour around the Al Fahidi Historic District, visit to the Diwan Mosque and then Q&A session in the SMCCU house with some Arabic tea / coffee and dates. However, as we went in June when the temperature was around 40 degrees+, we spent most of the time in the Diwan Mosque and SMCCU house with our guide telling us more about the Emirati and Muslim culture. Although the references / comparisons to the Christian faith were largely incorrect, it was still very interesting to understand more about the Muslim religion and to see what Dubai looked like before the skyscrapers! I should add that some Muslims may be offended by how liberal the guide can be when interpreting parts of the Qur'an. The other disclaimer is the guide will be English speaking, so I wouldn't recommend this tour if you find English difficult to understand.
Dress code is casual and the guide will provide appropriate clothing for the mosque if necessary. Guests can also book to have lunch after the tour in the SMCCU house.
