My Review

Booking through Viator was easy and turning in the voucher when we arrived went without any problems. The show was NOT worth the money. After the reviews we were expecting something totally fantastic with horrible seating. We got exactly the reverse! The tables were spacious and our show at 11pm was not crowded at all. We were the only ones at our table. However, we did get put at the very front table to the side of the stage. Actually not a very good spot. Further back will give you a better look of the show as a whole. Since we were the only 2 people at our table of 4 we got the whole bottle of champagne instead of 1/2. But the show was like a Vegas Showgirl show with boobs!! Im not offended by them being topless but the entertainment was like a nightshow act on a cruise. So if you like that for $150 per person then that will be fine for you. Just not worth that kind of money for a show I have seen in Vegas several times. Actually there was some juggling and acrobatic acts that went on in between the main Moulin Rouge dancers and that was the better part of the show. All in all for us - overpriced and cheesy!!! You can see boobs on the internet for free so if you are going for that then skip it.

My Review

I have to rate this tour based on our experience which was totally affected by uncontrollable reasons. You can never forsee weather when booking tours a month in advance so with that we had terrible weather the day of our tour!! It was very cold, very windy and very cloudy! So going to the top was really uneventful since we could not take any beautiful pictures. They only cancel if its raining and we were not allowed to book another day (said they were full all week). One of the main reasons I booked this tour was for the "skip the line"!! The lines are very long at the Eiffel Tower so it is an advantage to get to skip the line. However, we did not get to "skip the Line" because one of the elevators were broken!!! So everyone was sharing one elevator and it does not go up and down very quickly at all. We stood in line for over an hour!!! But I guess that was still maybe quicker then the other line. It just did not feel like it when you are freezing while standing in line!! The tour guide was very interesting and nice. She tried to have a positive attitude under the circumstances. So for those reasons our experience was not very good but if we would have come the next day when it was beautiful and IF the elevators would have been working then it would have been a great tour -- totally worth the money. So it comes down to a little luck.

My Review

This was fun night out with the kids. They totally loved it!!! The price was very reasonable and our tour guide entertained the kids with each story. Of course, it cost us more when you add the Taxi ride on to and from the location. It was a very cold night when we went so that made it somewhat uncomfortable since its all outside and standing around listening to the stories. But if your kids like ghost stories or interesting creepy stories concerning legends in Paris then this will totally be fun to them. Just hope or plan for good weather!!

My Review

We went on this tour during EID holiday which is a very crowded time to visit Dubai. However, this was our best activity all week. The tour was NOT over crowded which made it very enjoyable. We had heard from other people that the same type of tour with a different tour group was completely crowded at the camp. Our camp had plenty of space and good food with plenty to go back for seconds. The driver picked us up on time at our hotel and we had the vehicle for just our family of 4. We were expecting to have to share the vehicle with another group. This activity is something I would definately recommend and I would definfately use this tour group!!!!

My Review

Great way to tour Dubai. Very comfortable and easy. Nice to have the headsets to give you info. along the tour. Wish the tour was longer. Get a 2 day pass IF you want to get off at several stops. But you can do both tours if you just want to "see" the tour and get off maybe one or two places that you dont stay too long at. I would not make this a "shopping" day because that will interfere with your time shopping and your time on the tour.
