We went on the trip our first day to get a feeling for where all Dubai’s highlights were and we saw pretty everything so very pleased. We bought spices in the markets imagined buying gold in the souks. We rode in a barge across the river and saw the old parts of Dubai. 100% well worth the cost plus the driver and our guide were wonderful. Great value all round.
Good time on half day Dubai tour.
Our tour guide Faisel was very informative and helpful. I encourage everyone who can to take the tour.
Orient Tours Nimesh kumara/Junaid Alam were our tour guides, They arrived on time and Nimesh was extremely knowledgeable throughout the tour even down to the exchange rate for most countries he give us lots of information about everything on the tour from the history of Dubai to the migrants that live there. He made us feel safe when bartering in the ‘souq’ and whilst drinking arabic coffee. The tour itself was excellent and informative it covered not only places of interest but the river boat trip was just an excellent experience. They provided bottled water and despite the tour over running dropped us back to our hotel making sure we had a good time. Nimesh deserves a pay rise he was an excellent guide throughout

Absolutely brilliant day with a wonderful, informative guide. He went above and beyond to give us a fantastic day. We were amazed that we saw so much of Dubai in only 6 hours. Well worth the money.
Good tour to get to know the city, between old and new Dubai. Good selection of photo stops. Good timing at different sites. Excellent use of available time.
Dubai historical visit and narration
The history of Dubai and the visit to the old houses.I also enjoyed the site seeing of the place as a whole
Great way to see Dubai and learn
Was a good tour, our guide was great, even though i live in Dubai i leant a lot, my mother os visiting for the 1st time so was great way to show her around.
Take snacks as there is no time for food.
The tour is a bit long but thats due to the traffic, i would recommend tho on a day you have no plans.
We did a half day city tour with few business associates. It was a wonderful experience specially our tour guide Diana had amazing grasp on Dubai’s history and so much to share about Dubai. She was patient and clicked wonderful pics for all of us which we will always cherish. A very professional tour overall and I will highly recommend if you are looking to explore Dubai stress free. Thank you for a great experience. Best wishes always.
Good experience. Worth money!
It gives you a good idea of the city. Well organized. Enjoyed every part of sightseeing and walking into all attractions.
Beautiful city tour
We enjoyed our half day city tour a lot..our tour guide was a wonderful and gentle person who explained us everything about Dubai( old and new)..one more thing he also told us about burgaing in the spice market and gold market
Amazing tour guide
Interesting tour. It gives you a good idea of the city. Well organized. Amazing guide. Very passionate and knowledgeable. Norman Ali. Very friendly
Great communication for tour operator.
The operator had great communication with us as our flight was delayed over three hours. They came to the hotel to pick us up and waited and contacted us to see if we could find a meeting point to join the group. They went above and beyond to try to get us to be able to take their tour, we were not able to join them because of timing needed to arrive and exit the airport. I sincerely appreciate all the effort they made trying to get us to join them. I feel the tour would’ve been just as organized and professional as the service they offered us.
Amazing time in Doha.
My husband and I decided to visit Doha after watching the World Cup. Our vacation included Paris, Brussels, Doha and Dubai. It was our first time in Doha. Our stay was amazing. We booked the private tour, and it was the best part of our trip. Ali, our tour guide was amazing. He was kind, patient, knowledgable and above all proud to share with us the beauty of Doha. We saw passion and dedication in him. We really enjoyed our time with him. Thanks Ali! you were just awesome. We will definitely come back to Doha.
Very pleasant guide with knowledge of Dubai. Junaid our guide make my first day in Dubai worth visiting the city. Now I know what to do in next five days of my trip.
Anwar - driver took us safely with his smooth driving to the places we are supposed to visit.
Excellent value for money
Dylan was an excellent guide and the tour was excellent value for money. We saw many attractions in only 4 hrs.
Abdolutley Fantastic - 10/10
What a fantastic tour. This was the first thing we did after we arrived in Dubai. Chamil was our tour guide, and he made the tour one of our best experiences in Dubai. I can't recommend this enough. He picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, which was the cherry on the cake.
Overall a good and informative tour. Guide was good and knowledgeable and it gave is an overall view of Dubai. Disappointed that we didn't get the "Photo Stop from outside Burj Al Arab" as advertised. Although there was an opportunity to do a distance photo we did not "stop outside". Gave us enough insight, etc to be able to go independently to visit some of the landmarks etc.
We had a lovely guide trying to do his best. You can't stay very long to see the first stops but is a good experience. I loved to take the boat as ferry and to see the souks was nice.
