Our day started 6:20 for picking up and finished 20:50ish in the internet city Dubai (we were a bit starving on way back) Our guide was helpful with visa and transportation, however on way back, we spent 1.5hr at least on the boarder as there were long queues...The water temperature was ~24degree, quite comfortable for snorkel. However the water was not so transparent, and little to see. We saw ~8 to 10 dolphins during the boat tour. And as groups of other tourists were delayed, we spent ~1hr waiting at the harbor for the boat to departure...considering the money and time, it is nice to hang out there if all has been covered in Dubai, otherwise it feels a bit over spent (time, money and energy) to take the tour.
This was a wonderful experience - much better than I expected. The guys on site were fabulous - they worked really hard to ensure that everyone had a great experience. They were really friendly, inclusive and nothing was too much trouble for them. Their sole focus was to make sure everyone was enjoying the activity. All components of the activity were well thought out and constructed, with a few additional touches like the camel ride, the head scarf and water bottle gifts before entering the desert safari part of the experience. Would highly recommend this activity and well done to all staff on site - you made it the wonderful experience it was.
This particular 22-minute flight is perfect for someone who may be flying in a helicopter for the first time. The helicopter pilot was very professional, he used very subtle movements to while controlling the helicopters movements. A moderate speed, great view, and the pilot pointing out points of interest make this a great way to view the city, especially if viewing it for the first time. Outstanding value for the money!
Our first time experience the hot air balloon ride. It was perfect and we enjoy the whole day trip to desert safari by the antique land rover. We get to see animals that we had never seen in our country. The crews were all friendly and kind too. Thank you again. We hope to take the hot air balloon ride again one day.
the tour was amazing. i've been very lucky cause i was the only one guest and my tour guide Basit was excellent. he explained a lot of historical detail on the way to Abu Dhabi, well prepared on every questions i made and interesting explanations about the Mosque, the best part of the tour.
