The tour was well organized, although a little more time in Dubai would have been great. (Then better leave out the 30 min carpet market, this event unnecessary! Who wants to buy a carpet on a day tour?) Better to use the time to see the Fountains Show at the Dubai Mall. That would have been great and would have rounded off a day in Dubai. Otherwise the day was well structured and well organized. We were picked up from the hotel on time and got a little insight into the mega city of Dubai. Although the tour was offered in English, our guide also spoke German, which was great!

Great day from Abu Dhabi to Dubai

Thomas our guide was very informative throughout our trip.Lots of stops for photos ect, ending our day with a 90min stop at Dubai Mall. My only complaint was the 30min stop at the spice souk which I felt was a waste of time and we couldn’t get out of there quick enough as we were absolutely hounded by the stall owners.The others on the trip agreed with that.I would have given this review 5stars had it not been for this.

Decent activity with somewhat wasted potential

We chose this activity because we wanted to visit Dubai for one day to see its most important landmarks and get to know its history and culture a bit better. While our guide was friendly and tried his best to make the activity more enjoyable, we felt like it could have been organized much better and like there was much wasted potential.
