It was a very nice and well organized tour. Consistent from start to finish. Our tour guide Miriam was incredibly friendly and gave interesting information and thus gave a deeper impression of the culture of Dubai. She tried very hard to make every guest happy. I've never experienced it so well on a trip. A completely successful day. thank you very much

We booked this tour as the beginning of our trip - absolute recommendation! You get an overview of all the sights, very comfortably in the air-conditioned minibus and with valuable information. Amira was a great and patient guide, she really cared about including everyone and giving everyone a wonderful experience. She has a great positive charisma, was able to tell us a lot about the city and the sights and is also the best photographer in the world! We learned a lot, saw a lot and also got great holiday pictures - a big recommendation!

The start was delayed 30 minutes, then it started at Atlantis. We had promised each other more. We "only" saw the other sights from the outside. Thought we'd take a look inside the Burij Khalifa. We only visited the mosque from across the street to take photos. But we got a lot of insider information about life in Dubai and saw the contrast between modern and historical Dubai. Everything was explained in German and English. That was very good. We stopped at the Dubai Mall at 3 p.m. because we had planned something to do in the evening and were taken to the hotel by bus. The tour went until 7:15 p.m. All in all recommendable.
