What people are saying about Dubai Gold Souk

Be sure to book the premium version (5 days)!!! Lots of extras included!! There's (almost) everything to see in Dubai with the BigBus! If you then have a guide like Mrs. SHERLI, you get a lot of valuable information in German. She is so warm and caring, a real gem for BigBus and GetYourGuide. If she's not at the Dubai Mall BusStop, ask for Glenda! Equally friendly and helpful. Despite the high temperatures, you should definitely take a seat outside. The view is unrestricted and priceless. And the fabric roof and (your own!) sun hat/cap protect you from the sun. You can't enjoy everything in a single tour. So definitely book the 5-day premium tour. Also included is a dhow tour and a visit to a fantastic giant aquarium in the Atlantis Palm Resort.

Great way to see all the sights. We did the 5 day option but probably only needed 2 and ran out of time to do the desert sunset tour. Dhow cruise is good.

Tour guide was really knowledgeable and the photographer was very engaging in taking the photos. It was a great experience over all

I would like to leave a positive review for Adnan who took us on a tour around Dubai - Photography was amazing. Thankyou
