Pick up in our hotel was on time and brought us to the big tour bus. Safe drive to different places and smooth guide tour to bypass the long line entry to Burj Khalifa. It was easy to book via Getyourguide, especially our downtown apartment was being cancelled. They answer right away via email. It was enjoyable tour.

Everything was great we saw the best places. Our guide was a very nice person and had a lot of patience. Thank you for such a best day full of beautiful places.

Great way to see all the sights. We did the 5 day option but probably only needed 2 and ran out of time to do the desert sunset tour. Dhow cruise is good.
