I would like to give my highest praise to Sunwings. Due to the traffic issue, we arrived a few minutes late and had to see our plane taking off. The staffs were very considerate and friendly, and figured out an option of 40-minutes flying over Dubai plus Ferrari tickets since we would drive to Abu Dhabi later. We loved everything we saw and the excellent services provided by Sunwings.
Tips: Please leave much more than required time if you drive in Dubai with a rental car. It was very hard for driving even with a GPS because of its complicated highway system and messy street numbers.
What a wonderful trip. All the staff were professional, freindly and helpful from start to finish.
The views from the seaplane were amazing. What an experience!!!!
Ferrari World was also included in the price. Not the best theme park but my granddaughter enjoyed it. Our private car was ready and waiting to take us back to our hotel,
I would highly recommend this tour. It was very good value for money and a trip that will always be remembered as a very special day.
Absolutely fantastic trip, well organised, polite and courteous staff and really good value for money!!!
The aircraft was clean and in good condition, the pilot (Andrew) was really nice and helpful.
You have got to do this trip if you're in Dubai it really was the highlight of our holiday.
Incredible! This is a great way to see Dubai and the beaches, particularly the palm islands, Jumeriah Beach and look out for sea turtles and dolphins as per our pilot's suggestions. Seamless check in and organisation from start to finish - lovely staff. You have plenty of time at Ferrari World, great fun. There aren't a lot of rides but the two rollercoasters are worthwhile including some shows and cars on display.
great day. All staff were fantastic supplying plenty of drinks, ice cold towels. professional and superbly organised. Even slight delay on the 2nd part of the flight (due to flight clearance in Abu Dhabi) didn't matter as Regis at the jebel Ali dock kept all entertained with his stories. Thx 2 all
Unfortunately my trip was cancelled due to technical reasons with the plane, but 5 stars to Viator for refunding the cost of the trip with little fuss. Well done.
The trip is a must for anyone visiting Dubai. Captain Stephane was a great guide. During the first part of the trip we flew around all the landmarks of Dubai and the weather was fairly clear. One stop then on to Ferrari World. Every time we landed there were cold towels which were needed as it was 46 degrees C and cold bottled water. We were taken by taxi to Ferrari World which was very quiet, No queuing for any of the rides and the Rossa ride is a must. Despite it being Ramadan all eating places were open with screens around them so refreshments were no problem. Had around three hours in Ferrari World then mini bus back to our accommodation.
One thing to note, which is not mentioned on your booking email, is all passengers have to have photo ID njot just the lead passenger. No ID no fly so remember.
Every aspect of the tour was fantastic. It was everything we expected and more. A thrilling and exciting day...the best way to see Dubai and Abu Dhabi by far!
Add this to your 'Bucket List'....
What a fabulous tour to a fun park with a difference!
The flight on the seaplane to Ferrari World offered breathtaking views of Dubai. Our pilot flew past all the hotspots along the way, giving us numerous opportunities to collect a photo album full of memories. As we flew over Ferrari World we got to appreciate the facilities on offer. A short private taxi ride from the river to the park and we arrived at the entrance. Our first stop in the 'World's Largest Indoor Theme Park' was the 'World's Fastest Roller Coaster', being given special goggles to wear indicated that we'd be going fast - 240klms in under 5 seconds to be exact, it was a thrilling ride.....
Unfortunately that was the only really amazing ride for me, the rest of the park was fairly average but that wouldn't stop me from recommending a visit at least once in your life.
A beautiful fine day resulted in a smooth flight in a great little seaplane. Pilot Andy held it at between 450 and 500 feet for the best possible view. I paid the extra for the co-pilots seat. I don't know if it is worth the extra 100 as I didn't get to see the view that the rest of the passengers got from the back part of the plane but the view from up front was spectacular. It is truly amazing what they have done with that country, taming the desert and building the whole place in so little time. You just have to see it from the air.
Ferrari World is great for the young adventurers. There is a body size restriction on the roller-coasters so watch out if you are large. The offer a priority ticket upgrade for 200 and if the place is busy and you have limited time, the upgrade is worthwhile. It gets you straight to the head of the ques .that can be 20 minutes.
The drive back to Dubai was with an interesting driver and we spent the hour and a bit discussing how UAE works. It is great to drive on 4 lanes each way expanding to 6 or 7 lanes each way as you enter Dubai. There are speed cameras but I was told they only book drivers for over 140KMPH.
