We have been here in Dubai for over a month and this was the best experience we have had. The guide was excellent and made the experience memorable. We took a couple with us that had lived here for 14 years and they were amazed at the things we saw. This is a must do when traveling here.

Had a great couple of hours on the bus with a Fantastic and very knowledgable Tour guide. It was great doing this the day we arrived as gave us an understanding of where everything was for the rest of the trip. My 11 year old daughter said it was the best tour bus she had been on so that says a lot

6 January 2021

The tour included three routes and the night tour. Unfortunately, due to time constraints (the ship left earlier than planned), we could only sail one route. The live guide (headphones) always had dropouts. Therefore not the full number of points. Basically, the tour is recommended if you have the time to drive all routes. Alternatively, a taxi can also be worthwhile if you only want to visit a few places. The prices are around 45 cents per kilometer and a basic fee of € 3.-. Basic knowledge of English is important!
