I live in Dubai and was gifted a voucher for this tour. This can be done by residents or visitors. The guide loves her city, and each stop was great, educational, interactive. Amazing foodstops, and good value for money.

Great day exploring the sights, sounds and tastes of old Dubai. An awesome food tour thanks to our great guide, Noorin. She was super chilled yet informative. It wasn't a super scripted tour but very genuine and professional. The food itself isn't pricy in the area so this was at the upper end for the spend you'd want but we felt worth it for the insight and guidance of where to go. The headphones provided made it easy to hear our guide and the small numbers they have on the tours made it easy for her to answer questions from anyone in the group. We live in Dubai but still felt this was a great way to see old Dubai.

Dear gradojkovich. Thank you for taking the time to leave us this lovely review of your Souks and Creekside Food Tour with Noorin. It's even more special for us when residents choose to do a tour with us -- and our goal is always to come across as authentic and passionate local voices of the city.

Farida is a true local and shares her genuine love of the diverse food cultures that Old Dubai offers. From the Levant, Gulf and Middle East we sampled and learned so muchness about the influences and politics of these amazing dishes. The area was so colourful, vibrant and interesting to walk through. The stops were carefully curated well, start perfectly and are well modulated for variety. We've done 15+ food tours in different cities and would rate this among the top 3. Really different and so full of fascinating stories, history and culture balanced with the serious business of eating great food! Good management of hygiene, with your Covid safe kit supplied with sanitiser, wipes, spare mask and even gloves should you choose to use them. Bring (or buy) regular earphones for distanced listening while still being able to hear clearly. Expect clear tips about how much to eat at any stop, what to save space for, water any time you need and toilet stops along the way. Do arrive on time. Farida is punctual!

A Frying Pan Adventure food tour with Farida is a must. We did a private middle eastern food tour with Farida on the second night of our ten day vacation in Dubai. We are a family of four including two boys ages 10 and 15 and the food tour and our time with Farida was hands down the best evening of our entire vacation. Not only was it an amazing food tour allowing us to sample many delicious foods, but it also gave us a much better understanding of Dubai’s culture and history. We would have never been able to experience the great food and flavors of Dubai otherwise. It was a pleasure to spend an evening with Farida on her amazing food tour. We are extremely grateful for our experience and our time together. Thank you Farida!!

If you love food and discovering new places you can't miss this. Amazing experience. Farida is a fountain of knowledge and her passion for her city is contagious. Although we live in Dubai, we do not really know the old part at all and Farida showed us a very different Dubai. We did this tour as a family and my children also loved it. We can't wait to try the other tours!

It's always extra special when Dubai residents join the tour and still feel like they've been able to learn new things about the city. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to tour with you, and we hope you'll be back again to discover more neighborhoods of Old Dubai with us! Scrumptiously yours, Frying Pan Adventures
