Overall rating

4.6
(1,709 reviews)

We were messaged prior to being picked up from our hotel to confirm when to be ready by and collected as said. After picking up more passengers we enjoyed a quick unexpected stop at a traditional Dubai village where we learned about traditional crafts. A quick photo stop after this and then we were on our way. Local points of interest were highlighted.A visit to Yas Marina F1 track where we viewed the track and racing cars followed by a drop off for those going to Ferrari World. This unfortunately ate into our time slightly at Warner Bros but gave us a quick view of this venue. We enjoyed about four hours at Warner Bros which was about enough time. Lockers are provided if wanted and we also had photos taken which you could purchase. When everyone was together again we drove on to the Mosque which was stunning. Suitably attired,,we enjoyed the tour but didn’t have time for the gift shop.The guide was really helpful and informative but maybe too much was crammed into one day.

Couldn’t recommend this tour package enough! Both drivers/ guides were excellent. City tour guide was incredible and so so lovely. We have a few hours to spare in between City tour and Desert safari package - which I didn’t realise as though fit was a full day event - but, this being said, it was really nice to have some time to refresh before being picked up again. The Desert Safari is 100% worth it, if it’s not with this package, make sure to book with Desert Rose Safari camp/group. It was the most unreal experience.

It was nxt to a real circuit so we could watch real racing cars but was fully booked so couldn’t use them

Loved it! Could be a bit cheaper, but still was my favourite experience

Good, great guide and driver. Guide informative and stopped for photos
