Great excursion with Hamdi. Lots of very interesting comments. We were even able to eat together in a traditional restaurant. He took his time. A great guide and don't forget the guides. A great excursion to do

It was a great trip, I would recommend it to everyone. The best sights in Dubai, but a bit time-consuming

Very nice tour. Our guide, Ramadan, was so polite and informative!
