Great Knowledgable Guide & Friendly Driver

I was picked up from my hotel at the time stated without problem. I was on the tour alone with two other couples, but made to feel very welcome. On the way to Dubai from Abu Dhabi the guide points of things of interest. Unfortunately on the day there was a sandstorm in the area which made everything appear overcast. I cannot fault the tour, the guide or the driver. I would be tempted to visit different places in Dubai with the same tour company, as I wasn’t overstruck with the mosque photo stop or the Dubai Museum visit. I also didn’t like the Souq Markets as the shop owners are constantly pestering as you walk through, making it impossible to view. They will attempt to overcharge for their products. Dubai Mall was nice with plenty of options for lunch and views of the Burj Khalifa & the indoor aquarium. There is also a couple of lunch time showings of the fountains which are worth catching. Although I’m sure the evening show is much more spectacular, it’s a nice taster.

Dubai Full-Day City Tour from Abu Dhabi Reviewed by

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!!

Absolutely wonderful, great service, door to door pick up, perfect!

I had booked this trip from England, for my family and I. Amira our travel guide was fantastic speaking English and German, very impressive! We had a small tour of only 7 people so we felt very special. The shuttle picks you up from your hotel and drops you back there, which is perfect and so convenient. You see SO much, more or less of everything in Dubai, in such a short space of time. If you are in Dubai for a few days, it is great. Everything is explained in so much detail and you learn so much about how fantastic Dubai really is. Fantastic service and a fantastic activity. Thank you so much!

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.

Our guide was extremely accommodating to every request we had.

Our guide went out of her way to accommodate not only our difficulty walking in the extreme heat and humidity, she also listened to some special requests we had that were not on the itinerary. She was extremely informative and responded to every question we had. We were 100% satisfied! It was very worthwhile. ,
