A really great experience. You have to see Dubai from above. Very good organization. Our first booked flight could not take place due to strong wind, an employee of the company came up to us spontaneously and led us through the Atlantis Hotel, information about The Palm etc included, perfect service! But then it started 2 days later, friendly staff, smooth process, very nice pilot! This tour is highly recommended! Collection from / to the hotel also perfect.

A very special experience. We are glad that we had booked this. Everything was explained properly and the support was great on site and the sale of the pictures was really at a fair price. We are glad that we now have this beautiful memory on stick. Which was not so good that the transfer from the port (we were in Dubai by cruise ship) was not possible. So we took a taxi to the nearest hotel and had to wait 1 hour for our transfer. We already thought nobody would come. It later turned out that the flying couple had overslept and the driver was waiting for them there in the hotel. We would have liked better information here. The driver itself was very fine and we were transported safely and very friendly to the starting point and back again. Overall, a clear recommendation.
