Get away from the OTT skyscrapers and fantasy hotels for the morning and discover the old-world charms of Dubai before the oil rush.

Plenty of time will be dedicated to browsing (and making a street food pit stop if you fancy) with your local guide on-hand to assist in finding the best price for what you want.
