OK for first time visitors
Didier_T
, Dec 2021
Interesting visit for a first time visitor. We lost too much time at the mosque and at The Palm, so the time at the spice souq and the gold souq was very limited. The Abramovich ride was less than 3 minutes, just to cross the Creek. This is not an abra cruise. At the Dubai Frame also no time to enter. A bit disappointing. The total tour didn't last the promised 8 hours, it was only 7 hours.

Great staff, poor vehicle
Mouhamadou_D

You have great staff. The driver was right on time and courteous. The tour guide is very nice, knowledgeable, and also accommodating. The only main downside to this tour is the vehicle itself. When people come to Dubai and tour, they want first and foremost to see the city. You cannot see much of anything from this van, which is tight with very low windows. It's a transportation van, it is not a sightseeing van. I suggest you really invest in a decent sightseeing vehicle. That's the only thing you are missing. Otherwise, you have really wonderful staff and we thank them very much for doing a great job and doing their best to satisfy customers. Thanks.

MINI VAN FROM TOYOTA JUST 2 YEARS OLD Dear Guest, We thank you for all your good comments and critics. However we do not agree about our vehicle. You may have expected a 360 view which we have our Scanias which are not used during COVD period as we try to use mini vans to give our customer a protection from COVID rather take more guests in our Scanias or Mercedes large coaches. Had it informed to us earlier at beginning of the tour we still could have switched you to our Scania coaches with a bit of supplementary charge. Once again thank you for booking with us and hope to see you back in Dubai.

My husband and I really enjoyed this Dubai City tour. Our guide -Sheik Abdul Rafigie was the best! The driver drove us safely around to all the tour attractions. There were many stops with time to take photos and our guide was very helpful in taking photos for us. He is very professional and answered all questions during our tour and made everyone feel special. In spite of one guest being a little overbearing, he remained calm and respectful. We received a great deal of history and Dubai cultural. This company doesn't disappoint when it comes to service to guest. Thanks for a wonderful experience. Shirley and Lamont Hill- Tennessee.
