Really enjoyed this afternoon trip. Our guide Annie was very knowledge about Dubai and pointed out some interesting things.

You have to run the gauntlet a bit through the spice and gold souks but this is all part of the experience.

Would definitely recommend this to anybody going to Dubai.

I was picked up from the Rove Downtown about 10 mins early, I was the first to be picked up so had prime pick of the seats. It took about 1 hour to go around the other hotels to pick everyone else up. Tour was pretty good, giving a first timer a good glimpse of the sights
