My name is Jose Gomez, and my wife Sruthy Gomez are Indian by birth and has been living in Dubai for more than two-decade. We both are currently working as tourist guides with a culinary background and love it to the core. We have hosted nearly 3000 plus clients in our city for food and city tours and had been an Airbnb host for 2 years. We enjoy traveling to other countries and exploring new cultures, traditions, and food so we ensure that when you walk out you will leave with a handful of information, and real-life experiences.
Moreover, Jose & Sruthy are chefs cum tour guides and play well around with their secret spices. Hailing from an Anglo Indian Family we have our own hidden traditional secret recipes passed to us from our ancestors and if you wish to learn those, it's always extras for you.
see you soon

Wow, wow, wow! What an experience. We came out of this guided tour with Jose with a deeper understanding of Dubai, and a stronger interest in visiting this part of the world. The tour covered all important aspects of the city, and we were able to ask many questions. A great experience, highly recommend this tour! Thank you!

The person who gave me the tour was an Indian guy, didn't introduce himself. I'm pretty sure it was not Jose Gomez. I didn't experience the coffee preparation since he said he was in London due to the lockdown. Not what I was expecting, and it was not worth the money! The hosts probably were not available and called someone else.

Highly recommended! We learned a great deal! It was interesting, and we were able to ask questions. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable and fun to chat with.

I loved this tour because Jose included both the new Dubai and the history of Dubai and the region. I felt like I was actually on a tour learning from a local guide. I miss traveling so much and really appreciated seeing a new place through the eyes of someone who loves it.

This event exceeded my expectations! So interesting and engaging and now I really really want to visit Dubai. Sruthy was a great host! My boyfriend and I ended up chatting about Dubai for an hour after we left the event. Very cool!
