An absolutely fantastic trip around The Palm, The Bug Al-Arab, Marina and the skyline of Dubai! We were kept well hydrated and provided with some really great picture opportunities and information about key parts of Dubai. A very personal and excellently run trip!

Superb way of discovering Dubai and placing all of its amazing buildings and venues in context.
Great staff and comfortable flight but be flexible with regard to your schedule as air traffic control can exert changes at the last moment.
Would love to do it again

Worth every penny!!! Our tour guide was fabulous. She knew so much about the city - past and present. She made this tour a once in a lifetime adventure for us. She took us all over the city and explained so much about the culture and how it developed as well as the quickest way to get from one point to another and the best stops for items we were looking to purchase. The price may seem high to some people but I can say that it was beyond all my expectations!!

The price may seem high to some people but I can say that it was light years beyond my expectations!!

The speedboat tour was good. I wish we went to The World but we only went to Palm Jumeirah and Burj Al Arab. The tour guid said it was because of the cioastguard.
Overall the tour was good despite the weather conditions. Not much sun that day.

For a first time visitor, it was a great tour to get orientated and learn about this fascinating city. Our guide was very good and informative speaking in English and German.

A really good sightseeing trip with very friendly crew.
We could have gone faster - a very powerful boat so a short blast would have been exciting.
The taxi they sent to pick us up had no idea how to find the boat !!

There should have been four of us on board but one couple canceled at the last moment so it was only myself and my friend. The two guys who took us out on the speedboat were very nice, we were even asked if we wanted a shot at driving the boat which we declined lol. Due to a sandstorm visibility wasn't as good as it could have been but that was down to nature. Overall it was a nice way to spend a few hours even though it was a bit pricey.

The title is very misleading, there is no 'architectural' information provided at all. It should be called Mall Visits. Not what I wanted or expected. Very boring disappointing and a waste of my valuable time.

Excellent trip with really informative guide. As there are only 6 people on the boat it feels very comfortable and exclusive. Was a good way to see some of the sights while sitting in the sunshine. Would definitely recommend. Collection and drop off as promised - was slightly late but they phoned concierge of hotel to inform us so not a problem.
