Good tour for small group travel

We had a good tour guide who took us around & introduced us to many places in Dubai. He was caring & patient. He noticed we were tired & stopped by shops to buy water, he was waiting for us to have a meal outside of the program. So, good experience.

Very informative, a nice guide and good weather made this tour a very nice experience. Also special was the water taxi ride over the creek, the visit to the bazaar, where you could try a lot and the choice of sights!
