    This was the perfect way for us to start our Dubai Trip. We booked the tour via Getyourguide and we were contacted by our Tour Guide Adnan.

On our ride there Adnan was cheerful, interactive, informative and helpful. He introduced us to the culture in Dubai and made us feel at home. He gave us a lot of information on all the buildings, streets and landmarks that we passed on our way to the mosque. At the mosque, we were given religious attire in order for us to access the mosque. Adnan give us an interesting talk about the principles of Islam and engaged with us throughout the talk.
