We learnt a lot about Emirati culture, clothes and food, Muslim religion. I was impressed how open the culture centre staff was and she answered any of the visitors’ questions. Highly recommend it! Read more
Dear all, I visited the Jumierah Mosque via one of their guided tours only last week and it was a very enjoyable experience and one that I would repeat. The guides are friendly and happy to answer any questions also I really enjoyed speaking to Meera as she helped me with some of my basic Arabic that I had been learning. Upon arrival they give you some light refreshments but they are generous with the amount that they give you and I personally would have classed it as a light lunch so great value for money. My only recommendation would be that it would be great if the the tours were longer as I enjoyed it so much. Many thanks!Read more
One of the tour guides from my Abu Dhabi tour recommend this cultural center. It was wonderful to be able to walk around the historical homes and shops. Also to learn about the emirate cultural and traditions. I would highly recommend making this a stop and doing one of their cultural lunches/dinners. Read more
There are few historic or cultural activities in Dubai but this lunch, while touristy, does give a glimpse of an old Emirate home, food and traditions. The chicken birayani and dough balls with date syrup were particularly tasty.Read more
