Our guide was Nahla, she made the evening a real adventure. We went to many street-food eateries & sampled a large variety of Midlle-eastern food. In every case, Nahla introduced each country with both cultural and culinary background information which was presented in a witty way. The tour involved quite a lot of walking, with several sit-down breaks for food... More

This tour was amazing! Alva and her team executed flawlessly! Me and my girls learned so much about old Dubai and the wonderful food it has to offer! We also learned so much about the city and culture. Should you have the time, I highly recommend this tour early in your trip.

We booked with frying pan adventures to do their Middle Eastern food tour after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. Our guide for the evening was Stephanie, she was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about middle eastern cuisine and really opened up the group with discussions on our own memorable food experiences and our favourite foodie cities. We had... More

Excellent excellent tour, so good I have to say it twice and so good I went on it twice. The level of detail is top notch. There's wet wipes, always water available, even a pouch to keep it cold. There's a ziplock in the metro tour so u can keep the unfinished snacks fresh to bring home. There's even a... More

I'm a long-time user of TripAdvisor, but this is the first time I have been moved to write a review. It's difficult to get to know any new place you're unfamiliar with; perhaps even more so in Dubai's case, as the city can be an overwhelming mass of contradictions and different layers, a host of juxtapositions all jostling against one...

This adventure was well worth it. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and we went to places that I never would have heard about on my own or dared to try. Would definitely do this again when I am in Dubai!
