Not very helpful. Tour guide was quite difficult to understand. Seemed to focus mostly on german tourists.

At the stop near the Burj Al Arab, the tour guide did not advise us that more people would be joining the tour, so we lost our seats upon returning to the bus. Plus we had left some private items onboard. The guide provided commentary in German and Engish to cater for the group, which proved to be confusing and was often disjointed, as we'd past things by the time he gave us the English version.
Driver appeared to pass our drop-off point in order to take others to their destinations before us, making the tour finish later than expected.

The guide was very informative. He had a lot of information about Dubai and its culture. He was also very friendly and a well mannered person. We stopped at the beach overlooking the 7 star hotel, Jumeriah mosque as well as the gold and spice souks. Very worthy of the price we paid as well.

My tour guide was excellent. He was quite informative and funny. A professional the entire time and enthusiastic to share his knowledge for his country. I enjoyed it.

We went on the tour on Thursday 22nd of November in the afternoon. As a couple that had never visited Dubai before we found that it covered quite a lot and was very interesting. Loads of photo opportunities, the beach, the river (which we crossed by boat) the gold and spice markets and various souvenirs. The English speaking guide gave us plenty of information and the driver good as well. This tour is a great way of seeing parts of the city that you wouldn’t usually see. We booked all our Dubai trips through Viator (it was so easy) and we’d definitely book trips with them again. The best part for us was the price when you think of Dubai you usually think expensive but all trips were reasonable and we were pleasantly surprised at the cost.

With having to wait almost half an hour waiting for latecomers, we felt rushed for the best parts of individual exploration portions of the tour. Guide was friendly and helpful, but the English was difficult to understand even from the front row. As far as the review-type goes, there is no option for our family which included seniors (no kids, no teens).

Started a little late. Tou guide (can't remember his name but he was from Serbia) was awesome - very interactive and paid attention to everyone. Attractions itself want all that......spent a little too much time at the souks.

The location of the tour and the places we were brought to we’re very interesting and we really enjoyed the tour to that effectUnfortunately the tour guide was more invested in the people at the front of the bus and did not engage so well with the people at the back of the bus. It felt like the people in front had their own personal guide and we had to strain to hear responses to their personal questions when we were all interested in knowing the answers

Dreadful disorganised took 8 hrs instead of 4 hrs
Missed out on other trips due to such poorly run company
