Art, Jewels & Chocolate Tour of Dubai

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Experience hosted by Pri & Ricky

2 hours
Includes food, drinks
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

*Minimum booking of 2 guests required*

On this walking tour designed for both art lovers and art-agnostics, we explore Alserkal Avenue - through its galleries, studios, and artistically-inspired stores (even a bean to bar artisanal chocolate factory!), and an end-to-end designer jewelry manufacturing store.

This tour is an insight into the lives of expats in Dubai, expressed through installation artwork. It is also a terrific opportunity to understand how design-thinking is shaping product design and how history informs so much of our present and future plans.

On this tour, you will witness the confluence of government efforts, the formidable vision of the leaders, and transformative collaboration among artists and creative thinkers.

I am a true believer in the Rule of Three - I live between Dubai, Bombay and Washington DC, speak three languages and have 3 kids under 3. This tour embodies my three passions: art, jewels and of-course chocolates.
I am an art lover and collector, passionate about design thinking, jewelry making and chocolate consuming. I bring you inside the most vibrant, yet hidden art district of Dubai and first hand show you Dubai's transformation from a trading and fishing town to the Arab World's Art Capital. I am well known to the gallery owners who welcome us inside their galleries and give us access to classified areas where the actual magic happens. Packed with history, art, creation, tastings and shopping this experience will leave you in awe of Dubai and where this city is headed in the future.

Pri was a wonderful host. Very knowledgeable and passionate about the hidden art scene of Dubai. She is certainly an insider with access one could not otherwise have. The peek into the jewellers manufacturing and the bean to bar chocolate tour was excellent! I highly recommend this experience.

This tour was a highlight as it showed a more hip local side to the Dubai cultural scene. Pri knows the gallery owners and tenants, so you walk in feeling welcomed and like a local. The gallery managers take you around and it all feels friendly and stimulating. I also loved the combo of art, jewels and chocolate. This is a great walk for introducing you to the artsy area, and afterwards you'll feel less intimidated to go on to explore other galleries, restaurants etc not included in the tour. Pri also suggests other spots you may like. I'd only advise not going during the height of summer if you're sensitive to the UAE heat. Some of the tour is outdoors, so you'll feel it. (Although the galleries etc are lovely and cool when you step in.)

I thoroughly enjoyed the Art, Jewels & Chocolate Tour with Pri. I live in Dubai but had never been to Alserkal Avenue - very well worth a visit with amazing art galleries showing the works of very talented artists. The jewelry was absolutely beautiful and the chocolate factory fascinating. Also lovely cafes! Pri was fabulous - so glad I went!

Without this tour a whole beautiful part of Dubai would be entirely missed out. Wall art, sculptures, clever designed spaces we saw so much. What a great way to learn about Dubai's history. Pri our guide was truly lovely and we think this was hands down the highlight of our time in Dubai.

This was a complete surprise experience. We took a chance we were so proud of ourselves to choose this tour. We came out having a blast and spending the rest of our day in Alserkal Avenue - thank to Pri for showing us so many different spaces and experience through this one tour.
