Much better having a private transfer than waiting in line for 2-3 hours for a taxi after getting off of a cruise ship. People were passing out waiting in line, this made it simple.
A must-see destination for its sheer opulence, wealthy extravagance and amazing architecture beyond one's imagination.
Glad to have visited but it's a one-off visit for me as it is a bit too blingy and show-offish in my opinion.
The transfer that was arranged arrived on time with a good car and excellent driver.
The real snag with this is that even tho booked through Viator, a tour group in Dubai was responsible for the transfer. I had re-requested at new pick up time for 8:30 through Viator and they sent an email verifying that request. The only problem was that it was not relayed to the tour group on Dubai, thus we waited at the port outside in the heat for an extra 30 minutes until the driver arrived on the scene, which made a close call to get to our hotel and our private tour at 10 AM. The driver was unaware of the change and did not apologize for the misunderstanding.
