This was the best day of my life. I absolutely loved it. And the pictures are spectacular. I can’t stop looking at them. I’m naturally shy in front of the camera but the guys were so good at giving my directions on how to pose that it looks like I’ve done this before. I haven’t So, if you are in Dubai and if you want to feel like a princess and model for the day this experience is for you. You will absolutely love it just like I did. Thank you to toursGuys and Favas for making my day special.

My wife and I were in Dubai for a short stay and, as it turned out afterwards, found the best choice for a great city tour. Our tour guide, Abdul, had planned great hours in the old district (Al Fahidi and Deira) of Dubai. We got to know so many new sides of the city and were from the first to the last minute full of joy to have chosen this tour and would highly recommend it to everyone. There were snacks and drinks in between, in an original restaurant. Abdul also provided a bottle of water for everyone on the tour. Last but not least we would like to thank our photographer, Favas. (We had booked the option.) He has led us great in beautiful corners and so great photos, in a beautiful setting could arise. Thank you both and all the best for the future.
