Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This classic half-day city tour is offered in multiple languages.
The sights we visited and the information received were wonderful. However, the transportation arrangement from the tour company and the time management from the tour guide for the overall tour were not quite well arranged. The bus that picked me up from my hotel to the city tour was going straight to another city tour after our last sightseeing point so I had to jump out the bus to catch a taxi in order for me to make it to the airport to catch my flight to Russia. It was not the best trip I've had though I think they tried to do their best but just not quite well experienced enough.
A good way to see several things in a short amount of time. Finished much later than planned due to traffic and I almost missed my afternoon tour, so would recommend not doing 2 on the same day! Guide and driver professional.
This was the worst tour of our holiday.There was miscommunication in picking up other tour participants and the guide spoke to the driver harshly.I had booked an English speaking tour yet our tour was in both English and German and as the tour went on it seemed to become a German speaking tour with some English thrown in.My wife and I left the tour at the gold souk as we had planned to do even before the tour started,this ended up being a good decision.15 minutes of time allocated to spend at the gold souk for the other tour guests was a joke.Bathroom use was offered after we asked for it however the facilities we were directed to were a disgrace.This tour company needs to do better and be more professional.
This was a great tour and it provides a lot of very good information, history, culture, etc. with only taking a half day. The tour guide was excellent and very friendly and nice. If this is your first trip to Dubai I would highly recommend doing this tour first to help learn more about the area and get your bearings.
Initially hesitant to book this tour as there are few reviews compared to other trips, but glad we went with it.
Tour itinerary- we chose this as it provided a unique combination of old and new. Other city tour only showcased the old Dubai and a glimpse of Burj al Arab. Since we are short on time, this tour is suitable for us as it included a view of Burj Khalifa too.
Tour guide - informative and gave plenty of information about UAE and Dubai, helpful for first time visitors to Dubai.
I'd definitely recommend this trip to anyone wishing to experience something different in Dubai. Our guide was fantastic, he explained the trip well and made sure everyone was comfortable throughout the experience. Thank you
