Dubai Culture Tour: Deira Gold Souk and Bur Dubai Village

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The guide was excellent and if you want to understand and experience the real Dubia do this tour. It's not a shopping tour, if you want to browse and shop you are better off coming back, there is a lot to see on the tour so it's best to keep moving, The guide clearly loved Dubai and was keen to shre his knowledge and answer questions. For the first time In my life I questioned, briefly, if democracy really was that important. The women's museum is small and worth looking at. There was one couple and myself on the tour and we all agreed this was the best tour of Dubai if you want to find out what it's like to be a local. The Dhow ride was lovely and the dinner very tasty. I'm so glad I chose this tour.

Dhow Boat Dinner Cruise in Dubai

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

It's a nice evening and lovely view of the creek. I enjoyed being able to go upstairs and watch Dubai go by. If you are travelling alone you will be sat at a table by yourself, I wasn't the only one sitting by myself ..the food is fine, a bit too cosmopolitan ie blan, for me. There is no commentary on what you are seeing , just a meal. If you want a nice night out with pleasant food then this is fine. If you want to know more about Dubai and eat local food then this isn't for you.There was nothing wrong with the evening, it just wasn't quite what I was after. I did value talking with a lovely family who were refugees from Syria and dressed in all new clothes because they'd left Syria with only the clothes in their back and this was a big night out to celebrate their freedom.

Death Valley Day Trip from Las Vegas

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A good trip and I'd recommend it. It is a ling trip and do drink water regularly as its is hot out there. There are also regular toilet stops and a nice packed lunch and breakfast. The guide was very knowledgable and talked for mist of the trip.

This was the second trip I'd done in Vegas where the driver couldn't find the location to pick me up and other passengers had had similar problems in Vegas. The tour. Bus was a white van with small signage of the initials of the company. I was tired and when the guide called my name I didn't recognise the way he pronounced it but id been waiting for nearly and hour and he had a board that looked like a passenger list so I just ran after him in the hope he was e guide for my tour. As this is a common problem in Vegas I'd suggest as sign in the bus and/ or held by the tour guide of the destination of the tour which would make it easier to identify. Also as I'd booked a number of tours and you get mixed up when you're given license plate numbers or makes and models of buses you don't know because they are not common vehicles in your country of origin.

Grand Canyon White Water Rafting Trip from Las Vegas

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

If you are physically fit and only have time for one trip to the Canyon do this trip! There is nothing about this trip I'd change and I'd happily do it again. You get to spend a significant amount of time on the canyon floor and seeing the river and a helicopter ride to the Rim so you get the best of both worlds. The river guides are fabulous and take good care of you, I cannot organise them highly enough. Things you should know- you will get very wet and cold but it will pass, you do up to a grade 7 rapid and even though I had no experience and was nervous I just held on and thoroughly enjoyed it, you will dry off quickly, the walk to the water fall if worth it, there is plenty of food included and you can always help yourself to more water. Wear river/ reef walker shoes as your shoes will get drenched but you still need a shoe with a decent sole to walk on s,all rocks and slippery rocks. All the hard work is before lunch. he guides have amazing knowledge and are only too willing to share it with you. You only need money on the boat ride for tipping the boatmen, and they deserve a good tip. There are portaloos at the start and end of the white water rafting and at lunch you have time for a discrete wander behind some bushes if you need. You will be tired but its worthwhile, the road into the canyon is bumpy and I think if you had back problems you might be affected. Fabulous trip, well organised and very worthwhile doing.

Vegas! The Show at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A good history of Vegas in a variety style. The theatre was a bit hard to find as it is in the Mall, not the actual Planet Hollywood hotel, bit once you are heading in the right direction there are plenty of signs, There is a bar you can wait at and have a drink before the show and take your drink in with you. I found the Viator price was the cheapest I could get. Good performers, tap dancing etc

Ultimate Grand Canyon 4-in-1 Helicopter Tour

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I'd highly recommend this tour particularly if you don't have much time and have health/ physical issues that make whitewater rafting or other more physical tours not an option. The pilot/ guide Mike was great. Very knowledgable and safety conscious. The idea s spectacular and there is music in the copter which helped those who wee a bit nervous or had had a big Vegas night the night before ( which is not recommended ). The boat trip is pretty short but it does give you the chance to see the Canyon from the Canyon floor.

I did this when I first arrived in Vegas and I would recommend it as a good orientation tour. You get to see the real Vegas and not just the strip in Paradise. The guide was vey knowledgeable and helpful. There is a bit walking involved.

4x4 Dubai Desert Safari

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Well organised and great fun. The 4x4 was terrific. I felt very safe with the driving and would do the trip again just for that. The camel ride is short but still gives you the experience of riding the camel in the dessert. Loved the sand boarding. My henna tattoo is still here after nearly a week. The bellydancing was off a high standard. The food was good buffet style food and plenty of it. I'd recommend the trip and I'd do it again.
