Total misalignment of description and the tour
MinjungShienna_K, Aug 2021
Start of the tour whereby the guide explained the history of Dubai and UAE was good at the bastakya. But then he guided to local shop for shopping, which was not included in the local street food experience. Then walked through the creek, explained about the rulers Court, etc which was fine. Problem started from here till the end. During the rest of 1.5 hrs, we spent in Old Dubai area tasting Indian/Pakistani Street food and not the snacks from Emiratis as mentioned in the tour program. We did not even see the Falafel, Afghanistan Bread nor Kunafas. This mis alignment of tour description and the real tour program confused me. Requested a refund of 70% of the fee as this mismatch was not clearly explained in advance but only got 3 dollars refunded without any pre-concurrence. I cannot recommend this tour to anyone. Please avoid.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Many thanks for your review, and apologies for inconvenience - But your review haven't done justice with the quality of tour we operate - Making things short for our future clients, It was never mentioned that its Emirati style street food tour. Also you were informed by our tour guide that some of the shops serving falafel and kunafas are closed post covid and he offered you to take you further (out of the itinerary) just in case if you want to try, but you said that's fine. However Afghanistan bread was offered and shown to you but you refused to try. As per tour description there are 5 tasting but as we beleive in going extra mile we normally offer our guest 7 to 8 tastings which were also offered to you but you never mention in the review. In the end, again many thanks and wish you a good time 😀
Excellent experience !!!!
