What people are saying about Dubai

It took about 20 minutes until we had the SIM card. Was quite full at the stand. Then it takes another 2 hours until the cards are activated and work. I had hoped they would put the card directly into the phone on the spot and I wouldn't have to do anything else. But in the end it was totally easy and all apps worked perfectly straight away, just like with my SIM card. With WhatsApp, I only had to briefly confirm that it was ok that the account was currently being operated with a different number. I would recommend it.

It was a truly unforgettable experience to see the New Year's fireworks from the water. The boatman was very friendly and competent and maneuvered the boat very confidently. I hadn't noticed when booking that it was a speedboat and we were a bit skeptical whether it would suit us (no longer twenty). It worked! Thank you see x sea for this unforgettable experience.

Collection of SIM card was fairly straight forward and quick after locating the ‘kitmytrip’ shop on left hand side as exit customs area of airport. Local SIM card essential for receiving passcode to join some Wi-Fi hubs


Best new years eve cruise ever. Thanks to the whole crew for this amazing trip. I would definitely book it again!!!

Worked fine. The guy reading the passport was a bit overwhelmed. But after 15 minutes everything was fine.
