It was a good tour but we were told that pickup was from 8:30 -9 am and we planned our morning based on that. So we went to breakfast in the hotel at 8 am - then the driver comes literally as we were taking our first bite at 8 am. When I told him about the time.. he didn't seem to know what I meant but was pleasant about it. He said he can wait for me for 5 or so minutes if that works. Well, I gulped down my coffee and took a small bagel to go. So we went with him only to find out that we needed to pickup 4-6 more individuals before the tour. We were driving for 1.5 hours picking up.. only to start the tour a mile from our hotel. Poor planning tour company. We should have been the last pickup since the tour started down the street from our hotel. When the tour started it was great. But the guide carried no sign so there was no way to identify him other then his shirt.. there were a few people wearing the same shirt. Other than that the tour itself was great. Recommended!

Great tour. The schedule was very flexible which was perfect for our large family of 7. The guide was eager to answer questions and elaborate on topics, very friendly too. The greatest part was probably their helpful mentality. We were very stressed out about our luggage situation since our cruise had come to an end and we had a whole day to spend, before our flight at 2AM. They held onto our luggage in a separate bus and let us explore Dubai Mall for several hours after the tour had ended before picking us up and dropping us off at the airport. Praiseworthy service by Sindbad Tourism!

The guide gave a great talk at the start giving an insight into the culture and history of the area. He gave great advice on each Souk, talking through what you can get there and how to buy it for the best deal, he was great at looking after everyone in the group but also giving you the space to shop by yourself. He was both entertaining and very professional. Got to see all the things listed on the tour and more, it’s the best way to be introduced to the Souks and old Dubai.

Only 8 of us in the group which was a good size, we had the option to miss things out on the tour or spend more time looking at certain things if we wanted to, the guide was very knowledgeable Andy would answer any questions that we had, he told us lots of history and helped us to understand the way of life and culture in the UAE, well worth the money

Although the Tour started late, it still incorporated the allocated time and we saw all the advertised sites and was given ample free time. The tour guide I found was extremely informative and made it very enjoyable. As first timers in Dubai, I would recommend this tour.
