Dubai’s historic and humble beginnings tell a story like no other. We’ll start the day by marching the streets of old Dubai stopping by several enchanting sights and witnessing the city’s dynamic history woven by its people. My goal is to take you through a journey of tales and show you just how the small Arab village became a top destination throughout the sands of time. We'll learn about the emirate’s incredible leadership, people, and local traditions. We’ll wander the souqs, meet the owners, and learn the secrets behind some of the world’s most expensive traded items. We'll hop on a traditional wooden abra boat (think Arabian gondola minus the singing) and cross over the magnificent Dubai Creek. Once we’ve explored the historic neighborhoods in Al Fahidi and their unique architecture, I guarantee our stomachs will be grumbling loud enough to guide us themselves to one of Dubai’s best eats where we can break bread, drink tea, and be merry.
