Our Calendar of Upcoming Food Tours
Resident for a few or many years? Keep reading – the choice of tour really depends on what you’re looking to experience!
If you’re looking for a tour that’s exclusively food and no sightseeing, then we recommend our Middle Eastern Food Pilgrimage and Little India (private request only) food tours. These are 3.5-4 hour food tasting experiences combined with culture and storytelling across 3 to 4 eating stops.
If you seek a blend of food and sightseeing, the Dubai Souks and Creekside Food Walk is for you. In addition to tasting eclectic foods from some of the older communities around the creekside, you will discover hidden alleys, learn about spices, take a boat ride and soak in vibrant sights and aromas. It’s also our only tour that includes indigenous Emirati food. The overall food component is slightly lighter than the Middle Eastern Food Pilgrimage and Little India Food Tour in terms of food offered, but we guarantee you will not walk away hungry!
If you’re a vegetarian, you will have more options on the Dubai Souks and Creekside Food Walk, Old Dubai Quickie Snacking Tour and Little India Food Tour and the . The Middle Eastern Food Pilgrimage does feature a non-veg main course that cannot be substituted.
Short on time? Or have kids between 4 and 10 years? Our 2 hour Old Dubai Quickie Snacking Tour is the one to go with! You get to roam through the vibrant Deira Spice Souk, peek into the Gold Souk to witness the ‘Godzilla ring,’ play a fun game in the souk and enjoy 5 delicious snacks that appeal to most adults and children (there’s fresh bread and chocolate too!) We’ll finish the tour steps away from the creek where you can take an old school boat (abra) ride across the water after the tour if you like! Just one thing though — we don’t feature hummus, falafels and other beloved foods of the Middle East (Levant specifically) on this tour because they simply aren’t available in this neighborhood which has grown up on Indian and Iranian flavours. If you’re looking to indulge in that cuisine, you’re better off on our Middle Eastern Food Pilgrimage.
