Great tour of main attractions

The tour led to the Burj Arab, some museum that sold expensive stuff (it doesn't have to be now but you could drink coffee) and a really good museum that showed the former life in Dubai and, last but not least, the spice market. The tour guide gave interesting information about the UAE and Dubai and the tour relaxed. The only negative was the organization of the pick-up which took over 45 minutes and then another 30 minutes to the big bus

Interesting cultural tour

Unfortunately, all participants from the various hotels were ordered for collection at 8:00 a.m., which resulted in delays of around 1 1/2 hours. The tour guide was very hard working and could tell us a lot about the country and the people. A small point of criticism was that the perfumery mentioned in the booking was not shown. The rest was very interesting and you got a good picture of the culture.

Picking up at the hotel worked great / tour guide super friendly / impressions were easy to collect / everything was understandable / time was appropriate everywhere / tour is recommended
