Dubai: Old and Modern Dubai City Tour with Blue Mosque Visit
- Pickup available
- Duration: 4.5 hours
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!
The hop on hop off city bus tour was very economical if you want to visit all the major tourist hot spot. Don't use taxi because you can get around Dubai efficiently with city tour bus. I gave a 4*because the hours should be extended to about 9pm because there are so much to see, but bus stop running in most places between 5:30pm and 6pm.
This was a very easy way to tour Dubai. I recommend that you do your research in advance to ensure you stop at the best stops for you. Also, download tour bus app in advance -- This app allows you to track the bus and avoid spending too much time waiting for it.
This was really worth it! Very friendly, knowledgeable and informative tour guide. OceanAir Travels should be your first choice if looking for a good visit to the city. Not to mention the very good photos the guide made about us with the interesting places.
very knowledgeable tour guide named Kahn. We were able to see new and old Dubai, and within that a lot of great picture opportunities. Our guide made sure we weren't taken advantage of at the markets and was very attentive. Great experience.
