Our first day in Dubai did not disappoint. Our tour guy Syed kept us informed and so polite the entire time we were together. Not once did we feel rushed in fact he took his time to make us enjoy every part of the tour at every location. He also was the photographer of our group because he wanted us to remember our fabulous experience. Our tour offered the restaurant Al Khayma Heritage Restaurant as a lunch and I couldn’t have been more happy. From the ambiance, to the service , to the mouthwatering food… everything here is absolute perfection. Thilina took care of us in a private fully air conditioned room and I couldn’t have wished for anything more perfect. He was so attentive with us and I was so grateful. His service was what pushed this restaurant as one of the best I have ever been to. The food was just as fantastic. If you have an opportunity to add on the lunch here you will not be disappointed at all.

It was an awesome experience ! The guide teaches a lot about the main reasons of every local we visited which enables us not only to visit but learned as well. Addictionaly he takes excellent photos and you can have many recorded moments to go with you forever. I highly recommend this experience and maybe at your first day because then you can manage your visit with a lot of more knowledge about Dubai.

we loved it, our guide Karim from egypt made this so enjoyable. Thank you!
