Great day out! The only thing I would say is at times it felt quite rushed and we didn’t have enough time at places. The tour also started 30 minutes late. The lunch needed to have more options and again was rushed to get back to the coach. However overall a lovely day and grateful to have these experiences to remember.

full day made with marbouh. visit of all the emblematic places of Dubai with the possibility of eating at the burj khalifa after doing some shopping at Dubai Mall. an audioguide allows you to trace the history of the city. small flat it was not connected with the visit (in advance of 1 to 2 minutes). on the other hand, a nice day with the visit to the arts museum, madina souk, water taxi to reach the creek and its spice and gold market, monorail to go to palm jumeirah and its wonderful hotel L Atlantis, we ended up in Dubai Marina . I recommend

Cool tour, the beginning is unfortunately not that great, everything goes very quickly. Stop, take pictures and continue, at first it seems like a coffee trip, especially the carpet museum.

We wanted to get an initial overview with the tour and we achieved this goal. We recommend
