What To Expect

Experience the souks and creek of Old Dubai as few would, without being herded with a flag or trapped by the over-eager souk salesmen. Stroll through the spice and textile souks, learn our mothers bargaining tactics, ride the traditional Abra across the historic creek and savour foods of the three cultures that symbolize Old Dubai Emirati, Indian and Iranian.

  • Start off with a popular old timer's treat in the souk's back alleys where few tourists venture, before stepping into the intoxicating cloud of aromas in the Deira spice souk
  • Play a round of SPINGO, our proprietary way of experiencing the souk with a fun, easy-to-play, educational game that makes both familiar and strange spices unforgettable
  • Once our SPINGO winner is crowned, bob across the Dubai creek in a traditional wooden abra and then experience religious tolerance at its best in the alleys of Bur Dubai's textile souk
  • With the souks behind us, transition into a "food walk" mode with a 3-stop tasting that includes:
    • Sweet Emirati dumplings doused with date molasses
    • Indian sweet-spicy "water balloons"
