    This was the perfect way for us to start our Dubai Trip. We booked the tour via Getyourguide and we were contacted by our Tour Guide Adnan. He gave us clear information on timelines for pickup and drop off to and from our Hotel. We started our tour at the Zabeel Palace which was so beautiful. On our ride there Adnan was cheerful, interactive, informative and helpful. He introduced us to the culture in Dubai and made us feel at home. He gave us a lot of information on all the buildings, streets and landmarks that we passed on our way to the mosque. At the mosque, we were given religious attire in order for us to access the mosque. Adnan give us an interesting talk about the principles of Islam and engaged with us throughout the talk. We then proceeded to visit various places including the gold and spice souk, Burj Al Arab, jumeirah beach, heritage house and Atlantis the Palm. It was an amazing experience with a great guide and I would highly recommend this as your first activity.

100/100 best experience. The penguins were great, the staff were great. Very cold but when enjoying the company of the penguins you forget about the cold. We had a cuddle with the penguin which legit melted my heart. LOVED LOVED LOVED THIS EXPERIENCE.

Great skiing, however, the real experience is 10x better. Easy slopes. Only 3 slops in my eyes (I’m a confident skier) & website says black slope… but again, in my eyes - it was an easy red.. VERY COLD so bring layers.

Absolutely amazing. Felt safe as lifeguards everywhere. Staff were very friendly too

Very smooth - from ticketing to the views and everything in between - A+

Raj was an excellent captain. I appreciated the cruise and the sights.
