I wish that the 90 minute was in my budget (to see the Palm)... But this was fantastic!! My driver, David (I hope that is his name) took the best photos, he went fast and slow, and pointed out all of the daring activities you can do along the ride. My time slot included many people skydiving which was cool!! Also, my hat flew off as we were preparing for a picture and David quickly retrieved it and waited for me to fix my hat hair... since I obviously couldn't put it back on. Thanks, would definitely recommend.

We had the best time in the jet ski’s. My partner has done them before but it was my first time and I felt so comfortable and at ease. Our host was Hakim, he was brilliant in assisting with all our needs and made sure we were safe at all times. His super fun character made the activity soooo worth it! We had a blast and would recommend this trip again.

The process was spotless from beginning to the end. From the booking process, the COVID protection, the confirmation, the responsiveness of the company and driver. Most importantly, when we forgot a bag in the car, the driver managed to find us and bring it back to our hotel. Definately recommend it.

This was an ultimate experience at Dubai. Captain Arun was a really sweet person. This tour is recommended for everybody. The views of the city you get from your private yacht is amazing. Highly recommend it for a family or group of friends.

After my first experience I said I would come back thanks to Kareem, the best guide out here in Dubai. So I came back with my brother’s and they enjoyed it just as much as I did so will be back again for sure.
