Great value for an overview of Dubai city in half a day!!

An enjoyable half day tour of Dubai city. A well organised tour and very nice guide who managed to keep track of everyone on the tour. He spoke good English and German. It was a very hot day but the bus had great air conditioning. We had enough time at all the stops per itinerary. The bus is unable to go close to the Burg al Arab so it was a bit hot to walk all the way but still able to take a photo from the distance. I thought the Fort museum was great. His Royal Highness’s Palace was great to see also. The Abra ride to the Souks was fun. The souks were as expected a lot of annoying people trying to sell you their gold and spices. It just puts me off looking and perhaps buying. But all the same good to experience it. I thought it was fabulous value and took the hassle out of trying to visit in the heat by ourselves. I would therefore definitely recommend this tour!!

Great value and opportunity to see a lot of Dubai.

I enjoyed my half day city tour of Dubai and found it to be an excellent value for the price paid. This tour is perfect for those seeking a quick overview of the city, before returning on your own time for further exploration. I was one of 10 total people on the tour and did not encounter the long waits or pick up frustrations that other reviewers expressed. However, in a much larger group I could definitely see how this could be a problem.

Absolutely must go to better understand the beautiful local culture!

The event was so elegantly organised in the midst of a beautiful hall! The hosts explained the local way of life as well as the sensible meanings behind their culture. Visitors can ask any questions, even those that would be difficult to ask in normal circumstances. This is an event that I will definitely go again just to ask more questions and enjoy the same from other visitors.

Our driver is a professional driver (IMO)

What a great trip so much fitted in and driver was so skilled. Thought we would die but writing this now so clearly survived. I am not good with motion sickness but just got a slight headache which is good for me. The desert was strange and enchanting. Looked like a baked Alaska. Photos of a lifetime. Don’t eat before you go haha.

Highly recommended. Learned a lot about Emirati culture.

We were a little late as arrived via metro and taxi. Taxi driver unsure of location even though we had address in english and Arabic (driver may have been from a different ethnic background?). Would be good if clear instruction how to get to the cultural centre via metro and walking... thanks.
