Wery well organized service for customers, staff is very kind, helpful

Service is on very high level, very well organized. Staff is kind, helpful and frendly. I am very satisfied and I can recommend to everybody to use this service. I enjoyed all my jorneys very much!

Excellent excursion - highly recommended!!!

The dhow trip was awesome with a scrumptious feast with a huge spread of foods and deserts. The entertainment was spectacular.

Everything went smooth and we enjoyed thoroughly.

The city tour on the first half of our 2 part combo tour was very nice and the guide was very knowledgeable. Thank you for showing us the must see places in Dubai. The 2nd part, the Desert Safari was very much enjoyed and fun filled too. The guide Medo did a splendid job from picking us up from the hotel to the end of the tour. His driving skills on the sand dunes were enjoyed by all 6 of his passengers. Thank you for taking care of us during the entire trip.

great way to see the city and learn the history

we usually do the hop on hop off bus but thought we'd try something new and we are so glad we did. It was so much fun to learn the history and see all the highlights of the city with a knowledgeable.

Fantastic night great service. Great night and a great experience.

What can I say? The night far exceeded our expectations. Yasser was an absolute great guy and he made the night extra special. That doesn’t take away at all from the rest of the crew who were equally fantastic. We will do this again next time we are over. Memories to treasure for sure
