Sruthy was an excellent guide, very jolly and clearly well known by the locals. She will take you to try lots of food styles at several venues and you will be full by the end of your tour, so be hungry when you arrive! So much more to see and learn as you walk the back streets

It was definitely a great tour and very good investment. Melwyn was a great tour guide. He was not only a good educator on the foods but also the history of Dubai. I would definitely recommend booking a food tour with Melwyn, more than worth it.

perfect host who knew all about Dubai, it's history an culture. he also gave us a perfect insight in Dubai food specialties. that's why: don't look any further and give Suqlain the opportunity to present 'Dubai'.
