This tour is value for money by orient tour. The tour guide is great. An drop off at the atlantis for 0.5 hour would be good. Air-con bus is comfortable and driver is on time and helpful. We also joined the private city tour on the 8th jul and the tour guide from sir lanka is excellent and kind.

It was good tour to see modern Dubai from near. Guide and car were in time. Music fountain and Burj Khalifa were excellent. Should given more time in Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa. Tour was value for money.

A very informative tour although I thought very rushed. Our guide seemed pushed for time and did manage to lose two of our party. The sights we saw were magnificent with the highlight being The Dancing Fountains Another tour I would recommend.

For a first time visitor, it was a great tour to get orientated and learn about this fascinating city. Our guide was very good and informative speaking in English and German.

Reasonably priced and acts as a good primer for places to revisit if done at the start of your stay. My particular tour had issues with picking up another party from a different hotel meaning we were sat outside the first stop for an hour before the guide showed up. Not great fun with 3 kids in tow!

This tour certainly NOT an architecture tour. Our tour guide was informative but not on architectural buildings. We saw more shopping venues than buildings. There are so many skyscrapers in Dubai that we thought we would learn about but we did not. This tour was more a mere sightseeing tour. How disappointing!

THIS WAS THE WORST TRIP and TOUR THE TAXI DID NOT TURN UP ON TIME. HE THEN TOOK US TO A HOTEL WHERE WE WAITED ONE HOUR FOR THE BUS. THE FIRST STOP WAS THE HOTEL WE HAD BEEN WAITING WHERE WE HAD 20 MINUTES TO LOOK ROUND THE TRIP WENT FROM BAD TO WORSE THE GUIDE RUSHED EVERY WHERE WE WENT TO MAKE UP TIME FOR HIS LAXI DAISY TIMING AT THE BEGINING. HE SPOKE MAINLY IN GERMAN VERY LITTLE ENGLISH. I WILL NEVER BOOK WITH VIATOR AGAIN WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY

Dreadful - I was really looking forward to this tour to learn more about the history of the iconic buildings but can honestly say that I learned nothing. Our guide was extremely hard to understand and read a few facts from a sheet. Predominantly we spent time in two malls and a small souk. We didn't go for any photos by the Al Berj which I was disappointed about. The tour was a complete waste of time and money - don't do it!

Id definitely recommend that you ditch this tour and go for the big red bus which is slightly more expensive. The tour guide ours was a grumpy gentlemen with a gecko tattoo in his neck has to present in two different languages, which means that you miss out on hearing facts at the appropriate times. Not only this, but the tour is so rushed, that youre only allowed time to take a quick photo before being whisked to the new location i.e. our guide only gave us the bear minimum information, I get the sense that he doesnt love living in Dubai, which was a bit disspointing. Id recommend the big red bus so that you can take time to experience each location properly. Sorry Viator, this ones a fail.

The title is very misleading, there is no 'architectural' information provided at all. It should be called Mall Visits. Not what I wanted or expected. Very boring disappointing and a waste of my valuable time.

We were expecting an architecture based tour, with a guide who would inform us about who and how the main buildings were built in Dubai. Though our guide was lovely, he gave us a general tour of Dubai without any emphasis on architecture.
There was a mix up with coaches and a fair bit of confusion at the start: pick up taxi, dropped at a roundabout near a hotel, short mini bus ride, joined a big group on a bus then back to roundabout for first stop!
All in all, we got to see a lot of the city through bus windows as we sat in rush hour traffic a lot. Taking us to Ski Dubai for a quick photo next to the glass window inside the Mall with 22 others is not an architecture tour.

They whole tour was not well coordinated. The tour was supposed to be from 3 - 8 pm. I got picked up at 3:35. Then we went to another hotel and waited another 45 minutes for another group that never showed. The driver basically drove us to malls and shops. The information he gave was a bunch of numbers that he was reading from a fact sheet - apparently from Wikipedia! He had to keep repeating the same facts to fill space because he didn't have anything else to say.
I was very impressed that he spoke German and that he had to repeat everything in both German and English. His Indian accent was very thick and was hard to understand.
I give architecture tours in Chicago. I expected a LOT better. Tell me what the buildings say about Dubai and its architectural plan. Does architecture reflect culture? Say something about the amazing feats and firsts in the construction of the Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab. Say something about how the buildings relate to each other.
Overall, not worth it.
