What you'll do

Dubai’s historic and humble beginnings tell a story like no other. We’ll start the day by marching (not literally, just light walking involved) the streets of old Dubai stopping by several enchanting sights and witnessing the city’s dynamic history woven by its people. My goal is to take you through a journey of tales and show you just how the small Arab village became a top destination throughout the sands of time. We'll learn about the emirate’s incredible leadership, people, and local traditions. We’ll wander the souqs, meet the owners, and learn the secrets behind some of the world’s most expensive traded items. We'll hop on a traditional wooden abra boat (think Arabian gondola minus the singing) and cross over the magnificent Dubai Creek. Once we’ve explored the historic neighborhoods in Al Fahidi and their unique architecture, I guarantee our stomachs will be grumbling loud enough to guide us themselves to one of Dubai’s best eats where we can break bread, drink tea, and be merry.

Nada

Marhaba! I’m Nada (definitely not ‘nothing’), a licensed tour guide and Chief Experience Officer at Wander With Nada Tours. I've grown up here in Dubai, a city certainly not shy of making headlines with its incredible attractions, and I love to show it off. The experiences I offer are not scripted, or ‘Ministry of Tourism’ supplied, but interactive conversations where I’ll share stories of the nation’s incredible history and transformation AND answer any of your curious questions. One of the best ways to get to know a city, is through conversations with its people, and I promise, my enthusiasm for the city is contagious.

Where you'll be

We'll meet in the heart of Dubai, Deira, and wander from there to first learn about the city's history, culture, and transformation at a museum. We'll explore the old alleys and souqs, sail on a wooden abra boat, break bread together, and so much more, you'll never want the tour to finish! :)
