    my trip was amazing and the tour guide Sada (hope i write the name right way) is a very friendly and interested man. He knows everything about the new and the old Dubai, he tells me much about the history of Dubai and shows great places away the attractions. It was really a pleasure, thanks a lot.

    Dubai compact! Ideal if you combine it with a desert tour.

    We booked the tour in the morning and a tour of the desert in the afternoon. In terms of time, this fits together perfectly and you get a lot of information about Dubai and the surrounding area in one day. Our guide was "Lala". The tour was in English and very informative. In the 4 hours the various areas of the city were driven in an air-conditioned bus and in between there were always stops for photos and a visit to a museum. If you want to get a first impression of Dubai and don't have too much time, or want to take advantage of it, this tour is great advice. We had a great time and would book Lala again as a guide!

    Very informative city tour with all the sights

    The city tour was really good. We had a driver and an era guide, who told us all the most important information about dubai during the drive, and knew a lot about the city and the buildings. His english was easy to understand. We saw all the sights and did photo stops. But it wasn't all positive. Bottle of water in the bus - not true - sure, they cost 20 cents in any supermarket… all the same, promise is a promise 9am pickup at the hotel became 10 - and 2 phonically as to the whereabouts of the guide.
