We've pioneered food tours in Dubai since 2013

Our 3 to 4 hour food tasting tours showcase a side of Dubai that we’ve cherished growing up here, but that few tourists and expats ever experience.

Dubai is a city with such incredible culinary contrast that it’s easy to get lost in the sea of mainstream or touristy options and leave without having tasted what makes the city unique. On each of our tours, we’ll decode those humble dishes which you must try in order to feel grounded in the city and appreciate its oldest communities. We’ll take you through doors that only locals know of and transport you beyond the food with our stories, knowledge and insider secrets of the city.

Why Choose Us?

  • You’ll sense our deep passion and childhood nostalgia of Dubai come through on our food tours not only because we’re certified Dubai guides, but because we’ve grown up here.
  • You’ll experience places and foods that we take our own family and visitors to, not where we have a vested interest. We don’t take commissions or ask for discounts from restaurants, we pay them fairly and in full.
  • You’ll have a guide who is as friendly and articulate as the culture conscious globe-trotters that we’re blessed to serve. As a past guest described our tours, our guides are not “super scripted, but genuine and professional.”
  • You won’t be inflicted with touristy gimmicks like camel meat burgers on our tours. (Camel meat is delicious, but traditionally it is slow cooked and served with rice, not inside a bun)
  • You’ll be choosing tours that the official Dubai Tourism board chooses for visiting journalists and TV crews from around the world—for all the reasons listed above and more!
