The trip was the best decision to get an overview of Dubai. Our tour guide Amira was awesome. We were picked up from the cruise terminal on time and drove to all of the specified destinations. Amira gave us a lot of interesting information and took us to the most beautiful places. The trip will always be remembered. Thank you again for the great tour.

Our tour guide was EXCELLENT! She provided us with info about Dubai! She also adjusted the excursion where needed to accommodate our needs. While the tour had great hot spots in Dubai, the Soux area was a bit much for us. We were not prepared for the harassment. Either remove it from the tour or thoroughly explain to foreigners what to expect.

It was a great tour. Intense because there are many stations. Amira is a great guide, incredibly accommodating and speaks very good German and English. The transfers from/to the hotel also worked on time.

Great tour! Only to be recommended! There is no better way to get to know Dubai.

Paolo super guide, he introduced us to a different dubai Thanks
