Ramadan Old Dubai Cultural Tour + Jumeirah Mosque
Once you answer my wake-up calls, we’ll start the day with a meet and greet outside one of Dubai’s most beautiful mosques to learn about the culture of the UAE and facets of the Islamic faith. This brief introduction will shed light on the lives of Emiratis as well as the religious practices that many carry out on a day-to-day basis and during Ramadan. Once we’ve all enjoyed that initiation, we'll drive to old Dubai and learn about the city's origins and its transformation throughout the sands of time. We'll learn about the leadership, the people, and the local traditions. We’ll pass by the souks where once upon a time, vendors were only known by their names so you would often find a buyer shouting out ‘ALI’ in search for his trusted vegetable vendor. There, you can practice your haggling skills and have the 'kteer ghalee' (very expensive) debate to score your best price.
Price: The price per person, 12 y/o and above, is 376 Dirhams. Children, 11 y/o and below, are on the house (free of charge)!
