The guide was very nice and social. We were taken to many different places, and saw a different aspect of the city. We were provided with cold water. The tour was in German and in English at the same time (the guide would say a sentence in German and then repeat it in English). I think it was like this because there were not enough people to fill two buses.

Amazing and well organised tour. Our guide Sam was very friendly and had extensive knowledge and understanding of the culture and history of Dubai. We throughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it
