  • Our Dubai city tour ended with a tour of the historic district. Al-Fahidi roundabout and Creek. There's still some equipped with wind towers and restored houses, where the Café is housed. Friendly staff and great food. Inside nearby Café can be stretched in a cool atmosphere. The food was very tasty and fresh.
