Overview

Give Dubai’s hotel menus a miss and experience the city's lively street food scene on a 4-hour evening walking tour. Delve into Dubai’s oldest districts, and stroll through souks and neon-lit markets to visit the locals’ favorite food haunts, admiring the city lights on route. Sample a hot Indian snack and scrumptious 'shawarma' wrap, scout for goodies at the Spice Souk, and enjoy a mutton kebab for dinner at a popular restaurant. Tastings, dinner, and water included.
  • 4-hour street food tour of old Dubai
  • Learn about Dubai’s cuisine as you explore bustling souks and take in the city lights
  • Sample local treats such as an Indian street snack, ice cream, and chocolate dates
  • Ride an ‘abra’ boat across Dubai Creek and browse the exotic goodies at Deira’s Spice Souk
  • Enjoy a tasty 'shawarma' and mutton kebab dinner at a local restaurant
  • Food tastings, dinner, and bottled water included
Travel independently to the start point in Bur Dubai on the south bank of the creek, near the Al Fahidi metro station and easily accessible by cab.
Meet your guide, and begin your 4-hour food tour of the area, Dubai’s oldest quarter. Old-world charm mingles with bustling souks here, and on route, your guide will explain the city's history and culinary tastes.
Stroll through the busy Indian Market, sometimes known as Souk Al Khabeer, passing shops selling textiles, gold, clothes, and food. India is Dubai’s most important trading partner, and during the 19th century, many of the pearls found in the Arabian Gulf were exported to the country. In return, Indian merchants and goods flowed into Dubai, ensuring Indian cuisine stamped its mark on local tastes.
Try a hot Indian snack, and admire the twinkling city lights as you ride a wooden abra boat across the creek to Deira. Here, explore the Spice Souk, delving into the covered alleys packed with stalls peddling herbs, spices, sweets, and other goodies.
Sample some traditional ice cream, as well as a glass of juice, and luscious chocolate dates. Chat to the vendors about their spices, many shipped from Iran. Then, enjoy time to browse and buy local specialities like frankincense, saffron, Madagascan vanilla, and products made with vitamin-rich camel milk, such as soap and chocolate.
Sample Dubai’s best loved street food — a meat-filled shawarma wrap — and continue to one of the oldest restaurants in town for a mouth-watering mutton kebab. As you dig into the juicy kebab, learn how it’s made from a secret Persian family recipe, and admire the restaurant walls, covered in old newspaper clippings and photos of Dubai, and thousands of faded international banknotes.
Your tour ends at a central location when you say goodbye to your guide.

This tour was fantastic. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, and the small size of the tour made it feel very personal. The food was all delicious, and we really enjoyed our trip. If you want to see something more of Dubai than the malls and skyscrapers, check this tour out. It felt much more authentic than anything else we did on our trip.
