This tour is great value for money. Great for getting around. Excellent tour guide. Food at armarni hotel amazing with huge range.
Wasn't interested in the rug museum and felt that the time spent here could have been used better at the burj as we were very rushed here.
Only one drink on cruise
Its a little bit over-hyped. Its not bad but nothing to boast about.
Overall the experience has been ok. I would have preferred the dinner to last longer than what it did less than one hour. We had to eat quickly to move just after to the top of Burj. Armani Mediterraneo Dubai has a very good buffet which deserves more time so to taste the different dishes and maybe attend a fountain show just outside. An advice: you might be tempted to eat as much as you can there, but remember that, just after the dinner, a superfast elevator will bring you to the top of Burj Khalifa!!! I would completely skip the carpet market stop before the dinner, which looked like an event set up to advertise the sales of some carpets.......
Finally, this tour is advised if you are in the very first days of your stay in Dubai. Part of the afternoon tour by bus, in fact, might result as redundant if you have already throttled across the city with BigBus or City Sightseeing Dubai. However, congrats to the guide, an Egyptian guy, super friendly and very knowledgeable!
The speaker is very expert and knowledgeable on Dubai an will
This tour was disappointing - the tour guide while he did part a lot of local knowledge seemed to spend more time on his phone and talking to the driver than engaging. He also didn't stress the importance of keeping to allocated times and a 7 hour tour went in excess of 8.5hrs which with time to spare would have been ok but we had a shuttle booked to get to the airport. We asked him about taking a taxi to ensure we would be back at the hotel on time but he insisted things would be ok and in the end we ended up only just making it and that would because we insisted on getting on the shuttle and not waiting for other people to get back from the last stop. The bus driver then was rude and aggressive when we requested we get dropped off first. Overall this tainted the content of the tour which was a nice overview of the sights of Dubai.
Dubai Top 5 Tour was great. The deliver picked us on time from the hotel lobby. The tour was great, our guide was awesome. We had no issue with this tour or the guide at all. Everything was great apart from waiting for some guests who were late coming back from Burj Khalifa.
Tour guide was great. I can't recall his name but he was great and a wealth of local knowledge.
The tour began well with the marina cruise choppy and bumpy for those who get sea sick easily - be warned and some opportunities to take pictures. No commentary on the bus and the multiple languages made it difficult when to follow the instructions. Jumeirah souk to get a picture of the Burj Al Arab was a disappointment. Instead of being shown where to get the view that was discussed, we wandered about looking for it, going way too far off. Then, upon rushing back to the meeting spot, we see that the group has already left no head count done and we run down the road and thankfully catch up was able to notice the clothing of another tour member. Very disappointing. The drive down the palm was ok and the chance to take a picture in front of Atlantis is rushed. The dinner at the Armani restaurant was wonderful but rushed again. We had less than 1 hour to eat 55min and if you want to see the fountains, that will take up your dinner time. Food is fabulous. Then going up the Burj Khalifa was another disapointment not the tour's fault. 30min in line ups to get up, 20 min in lines to get down, left 10 min up there but couldn't get any pictures since the few windows there were taken by others and very smudged with fingerprints that pictures were useless anyway. Waiting for everyone to recovene was tiring and made for an extremely long tour. This tour needs to be better laid out and organized. More information from the guide about what is to be seen/experienced would've been nice. An please do a better job organizing the drivers and the rides back to the hotels. Our driver didn't know where the hotel was and added on another 30min to the night due to getting lost. There are much better tours from which to select.
Excellent tour we loved everything about it .The Guide was absolutely a beautiful human being ,and I am embarrassed that I don't remember his name. He made us feel special, and we joked about our different lifestyles and how our sense of humour and humanity reinforced our hope for peace in the World, and the realization that people from different cultures and religions respect each other for who they are as individuals, and how they treat each other on a daily basis, is the most important Factor ,in sharing this beautiful Planet .perhaps the world needs to travel more so we don,t miss out on the influence from the truly amazing Human Beings that you will meet when you travel from one side of the world to the other and will change who you are as Person to be passed on to the Next. Thank you!

For short or long stays this is a great tour that captures the main sites over an afternoon and evening. It is a good way to break oneself into an area. The tour guide was exceptional in the way he conducted the tour. There was initially an issue with us and some others on the tour not being picked up as arranged from our hotels and we later found out that it was the driver of a sub contracted tour company. We had to play catchup by two hours with the tour. It all worked out as the tour guide from 'Insiders Tours' waited and began the tour when we all arrived. Insider Tours also sent another driver and a car to our hotel who drove us across town to meet the group. The tour guide was ropable with the other driver of the sub contracted company but he was very professional and got on with his job. Full credit to him. One other sour issue was the contact telephone number on the Viator confirmation was a mobile number that was switched off. When we arrived two days before we did confirm with the Company who conducts this tour as required and all seemed to be okay. However, that all paled into insignificance as we undertook this great tour.
