Everything was well planned and organized, the tour guide explanations was to the point and informative, the only issue I had was trying to get them contact me the night before to confirm the pack up time, other than that, everything was great, my son and I really enjoyed the experience!

Good trip, the mosque was amazing and our guide told us a lot of interesting facts and things in general on the trip. Not sure why we went to the Louvre, we got off the bus for 15 minutes just to take a picture and go again, you couldn’t even see it fully, so i thought that was a bit of a waste of time but everything else was pretty good!

Superb Tour and fabulous day out

This was a superb tour. We were picked up about 8an and I thought I would probably go for a snooze on the bus from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. No chance the tour was so instructional from the time we stepped on the bus. Our tour guide was Mohammed and his knowledge and interesting conversations were simply riveting. I can not speak highly enough of the tour. Simply fantastic and highly recommended whilst you are in Dubai.
