    Overall the journey is satisfactory. Our guide Malik was a nice, knowledgeable and considerable guy. He managed the tour professionally and gave us a joyful memory about Dubai. Also he took nice photos for us. A 4 hours journey which take me to several must-go attractions to take nice pictures and also time was given to visit places like museum, water taxi and local market for herbs and gold. This is a value for money deal and one shall take it as a starter to explore Dubai.

    Good city tour, but with a touch of sales tour

    Very good city tour, enough time for pictures, great experience driving an old Abra across the creek. Great guide Kumar, went out of his way to be very committed. Good all round, unbeatable for the price. On the spice market you were led into a shop where all spices and teas were presented. However, this came across as if you wanted to “turn everything on” and sell as much as possible, in which case I was tapped and bought tea for € 100.

    A wonderful tour!

    The service was excellent, the guide was kind and very good, and the audio guide well synchronized with the itinerary. But the activities timing need to be improved. We spent only 10 minutes walking in the gold market. Not enough to buy something. This was due to some passengers who were not returning to the bus on time after a stop. And we had to spend a lot of time waiting for them.
