This tour was fabulous. Syed was an incredible tour guide.I love that he was so passionate about Dubai and its culture. He gave us a great understanding of how Dubai has evolved and its impact on the Middle East. Would recommend this tour for any tourist for the first time visiting Dubai.

Ria was a fun guide, and she was good about providing explanations and background. I liked that we were a small group and that I got a hotel pickup rather than having to make my way to a central meeting point, though the others in my group were staying at locations quite far from each other and me, and traffic was pretty bad. That meant that I’d been in the van a full hour before the tour even began. We covered a lot of territory and were given ample opportunities to get out and walk or explore. The one stop that was unique to this tour (according to my research) was the Blue Mosque. I’d picked the tour thinking that was a big deal. Nope—it’s a fairly small, albeit beautiful, mosque that is privately owned and used principally for tourists. I don’t regret the stop but if I were to choose again I wouldn’t feel compelled to pick this particular tour to stop there. Many other options are available so unless you particularly like seeing religious buildings, you may want to choose another. Having said that, I did like seeing modern and older Dubai, and getting around so thoroughly. As I said, guide Ria was good—interesting and very accommodating if our individual interests. She also very helpfully dropped each of us off where we wanted. Most went to Dubai Mall to explore further. The tour was a great experience overall.

Great overview of Dubai

It was a great way to see key highlights from Dubai in a very compressed time period. The guide was very helpful and enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge about Dubai. I dis find it a little off-putting that every place we visited was introduced by how much it cost to build, but I think that’s part of the Dubai culture. Overall worth the time and money.

Took this tour as a way to see the sights and was amazed!! My tour guide Ruhee was so polite and knowledgeable of the history and the sites. It was lovely to see the two different sides of Dubai (Old Dubai vs Modern Dubai) with stopping points to take many pictures. It was also such a beautiful experience to enter a mosque! The transportation was a great and comfortable coach bus. I was able to leave my heavy back pack on board and walk around with just a small purse. The tour ended around 2PM so keep that in mind if you’re making reservations for anything in the early afternoon. (You can leave early if need be) I would definitely take this tour again and recommend it to everyone.

We saw the highlight of Dubai. Our guid, Ramadan, made it extremely interesting and enjoyable. He especially did a great job explaining the Islam religion and what happens during prayer time in the mosque. We had plenty of time for pictures and questions at each stop. We were picked up at our hotel and dropped off where we wanted. Very convenient. I highly recommend this tour. Superb value!
