Dubai's Favorite Food Tour: 10 Tastings

My wife and I went to Dubai for our honeymoon and she booked us this tour based on raving reviews of Gomez. ...all were true! Awesome food, fun facts about the culture and history of the area we were in and great company! For those who are worried about spending the money on this tour, it’s absolutely worth it. And please, please do not eat in advance of the tour. There is more food than you can possibly eat... well worth it!

The Ultimate Layover Dubai Tour

I found Jose Gomez on line when my husband and I realized that we were going to have a stop over in Dubai. We had heard so much about the city and wanted to see it for ourselves but needed help to do it in our limited time frame. Gomez was really easy to communicate with. We quickly set up a tour that worked for us. He picked us up at the airport, gave us a fabulous tour and dropped us off at our hotel. He hit the highlights of the city in an exciting and thorough way. We had the opportunity to see many different aspects of that truly unique city. He knows the city well and was able to share his information in a clear and insightful way. We are really glad we did it. Thank you Gomez!!
