The guide was very nice, courteous and was always able to answer questions. Well organized tour with many things worth seeing. You could not only hear a lot about the buildings, but also about the history. For the price then also unbeatable. All in all a must for every tourist who wants to learn more about Dubai.

We was in JA Lake View Hotel very far from the city center and Orient Tours was only one of all that agencies which guaranteed the transfer to and from our hotel included in the price of the trip! Trip was very nice, we met interesting people and tour guide. All places that we visited were worth to see. Sincerely recommend to all.

We would very pktl. picked up from the hotel. I found it very nice that I received a message via WhatsApp the day before as a reminder with the pick-up time. I found the tour itself very good. The tour took place in English and German. We got a lot of information and our questions were answered well. I can only recommend this tour for getting to know Dubai.
