About
Hands down the best Arab food tour in the city! This tour brings you samples of the most authentic traditional Emirati meals over a multi course dinner walk. We will weave through the Spice Souk where you can see and smell the amazing mix of regional products. Sip warm tea as you glide across the creek in a private boat, basking in the views. Then we will enjoy Emirati classic dishes in an restaurant that operates out of the first office building in Dubai. Along the way your guide will offer commentary on the historical surroundings. Finally, enjoy main courses in the oldest neighborhood in the city, where you will enjoy dishes fit for a sheik! By the end of this tour, you will be an expert at local cuisine and have the knowledge about the dishes and why they remain so popular. All the while, you will have explored the old markets and lanes of the original fishing and pearling village.

Excellent Intro to Dubai's History
Nov 2021
We did the Flavors of Arabia food tour with the amazing Pri as our guide. It was an excellent experience, for both resident and visitor alike. Pri is knowledgeable, engaging, and completely delightful as a guide. The area of town that is the focal point of the tour is filled with historic buildings, bustling commerce, surprising alleys, and delicious food. The sights, sounds, smells (ah...the Spice Souk!), and flavors guarantee that you will remember this tour. Highly recommended, whether you are visiting Dubai or have lived there for years.

Have you met Pri?! You gotta!
Jan 2021 • Friends
30 minutes after contacting for a private tour we were all set. The four of us loved our evening historic walk tasting and stopping at small restaurants tucked inside the sooks. One of has some allergies so a few changes had to be made but seemed easy enough. Food was absolutely delicious and a lot. All the stories she shared were enthralling. Every dollar spent was worth it.

5 Star Food Tour
Feb 2020
This was a great tour walking through Dubai's main sights and getting a chance to try some local food. Since we were only there for a quick visit, this tour gave us the chance for a bit of it all. The guide was entertaining and we learned a lot about the city and the culture.
