Awesome Dubai Tour
, Feb 2020
This quick layover was one of the Best I have had. This tour went to the listed sites and they were phenomenal. I highly recommend using not downloading WhatsApp. This will help with a smooth transition from terminal to Tour. The guide was very knowledgeable with a good understanding of Dubai and it’s history. If you want an enchanting tour during your layover this one was awesome.

Fun filled night in Dubai

Highly recommend this trip. Quick and it hits the most iconic spots in Dubai. Please use or download WhatsApp to ensure a smooth transition from the terminal to the tour. We visited all of the spots listed in the description. Very knowledgeable tour guide on the history of the city. Also knows excellent spots to take photos at every site. Traveling from Boston to Cape Town and this was by far the best layover I’ve had.

Very friendly tour guide who tells many interesting things. Unfortunately he finished the tour earlier than the arranged 4 hours.

Great option for a 15 hour evening layover! I am a solo female traveler and had a 15 hour layover in Dubai. I booked a hotel for the night and had the guide pick me up there. My guide, Wahid was very nice and accommodating. He drove me through the older part of Dubai then to the Jumeirah Mosque. We took a walk around the outside of it it was too late for the daily tour. Then he drove me to the new part of the city where I saw the Burj Al Arab and then to the Dubia Mall where Burj Khalifa is located. He dropped me off parking is limited there and gave me time to see the fountain show. He was waiting for me in the same spot after the show. He then drove me to the Palm Island where I was able to get a picture of the Atlantis resort. I wish I had more time to explore the city but I was glad I booked a tour to see what i could in a short amount of time and in the evening.

Great layover tour from Waseem

Personalized Layover in Dubai | Mar 2020
Waseem was a great guide who knew how to make the most of the 4-5 hour layover by brother and I had in Dubai. Although we had wanted to go up into the tallest building, and I had wanted to see the fountains (our 2pm arrival and 8pm departure made that not possible) he convinced us it was best to see an overview of the whole city. We saw all parts of Dubai, including the Palm Islands, the old city, downtown, and he was very informative about the area. We really appreciate that he did not take us to carpet sellers or other traps where some tour guides get kickbacks trying to sell items. Waseem was very knowledgable and friendly, and made sure we saw all areas we had reqeusted, and despite traffic, still got us back to the airport on time. Thank you so much for making this stop so enjoyable.

Super nice trip through Dubai

Day Layover in Dubai | Mar 2020
The trip was super interesting! I got picked up on time at the airport and my guide Waseem was super friendly. He showed me a lot of interesting things to see in Dubai and took some pictures of me in front of the Burj Khalifa. Unfortunately, I was super tired after my flight but still I was excited to see everything. I saw everything I wanted to see and my guide told me quite a lot facts about the city and the United Arab Emirates, he knew a lot. I got back on time as well. I can only recommend this.

Few hours in Dubai

Day Layover in Dubai | Feb 2020
I was very happy with this layover. The weather was very rainy in Dubai and I had delays in exiting the airport due the airline arriving late and issues with securing an exit visa quickly. However, my tour guide Waseem, was patiently waiting and considering the weather conditions he did an excellent job of providing an informative overview of Dubai. If I have a longer layover in Dubai I will return and request Waseem as my tour guide.

Made a long layover into an amazing mini trip

Night Layover in Dubai | Feb 2020
Was nervous about having a long layover in the middle of the night but this tour made it easy to make the best of it! Waseem picked us up, had cold waters for us and drove us to see all the sights. He explained the history of UAE and dubai along the way, and was very kind and charismatic. He got us some saffron tea, and helped us get a late night bite . Couldnt have asked for a better way to see dubai or to spend a long layover. If you're thinking about booking a tour, DO IT ! and request WASEEM

Much more fun than sitting in the airport

Day Layover in Dubai | Feb 2020
I really enjoyed my tour of Dubai with Waseem, who was very knowledgeable about the city and was a cheerful, friendly and interesting guide. He was happy to adapt the tour according to my interests, and was careful to get me back to the airport in plenty of time for my onward flight.

Wonderful Private Tour

Day Layover in Dubai | Dec 2019
I had a layover in Dubai and Waseem showed me the top sights in my short time. He was very knowledgeable and explained a lot to me about Dubai. He was very attentive and knew the best things to see to give me an idea of what Dubai is like. I would recommend this tour with him and if I go back to Dubai, I will go on tours with Waseem.

Had to call the pick up upon reaching airport

Dubai Airport Transfer | Dec 2019
Had to call the pick up upon reaching which caused unnecessary cost for data roaming. Driver did not wait at the Arrival Hall like most typical pick up services. However, drive to the hotel was smooth.

Afternoon Layover in Dubai | Dec 2019
We had some time in the afternoon before our flight, so I scheduled this tour. I was much supervised about the quality of our tour and the professionalism of our tour guide Waseem. He took us to see all the best sights that Dubai has to offer. Light show on the tallest building in the world as well as one of the best water shows I have seen. Great tour, glad I booked it.

Waseem is the BEST

star-5Mike W
Dubai in Private - Sightseeing Late Night tour | Nov 2019
I had a midnight-8am layover in Dubai and decided it was better to explore one of the most fascinating cities on the planet and sleep on the plane later. Great choice!! Waseem picked me up from the airport at our scheduled time and place and he kept me up and going for four hours, bringing me back to the airport with plenty of time before my next flight. Not only did he show me the sights and make plenty of stops for great pics, but he bought me a tasty and quick dinner midway and provided all sorts of interesting insights about Dubai along the way. Thanks, Waseem!

Night Layover in Dubai | Oct 2019
I'm a somewhat wimpy traveler, but decided to step out of my comfort zone for this tour on my 8+ hour Dubai layover. I felt totally safe with Waseem as we hit the highlights of the city. Got to hear interesting stories of the places we went and Waseem was willing to adjust to my preferences - want to stop and shop? Sure! Want to move on to the next? No problem! If you have a long layover (probably 6+ hours so you can get out of the airport, spend 4 hours driving around the city, then be back in time for the next flight), I highly recommend his tour.
