30 Minuten Rundflug über das "neue" Dubai - kein Flug über die Altstadt - manche Gebäude hat man mehrfach "überflogen" - kann man mal machen und war ganz sicher sehr beeindruckend - aber der Preis ist nicht gerade günstig. Beim nächsten Aufenthalt in Dubai mache ich es nicht mehr

So einen Flug hatte ich mir schon länger vorgenommen und meine Erwartungen wurden nicht enttäuscht. Buchung, eigene Anfahrt, Ablauf vor Ort, Flug..etc... alles verlief reibungslos und professionell. Jederzeit gern wieder und eine klare Empfehlung wert.
