An action packed tour taking in many stops, including photo stops outside of mosque& Burj Al Arab, 'museum' stop, which was more of an opportunity to be sold Arabic artworks, boat ride across Dubai creek, souks and finishing with Burj Khalifa. We had a great guide and took lots of photos. I would rather avoid the hard sell for artworks costing hundreds of USD.

Pick up in our hotel was on time and brought us to the big tour bus. Safe drive to different places and smooth guide tour to bypass the long line entry to Burj Khalifa. It was easy to book via Getyourguide, especially our downtown apartment was being cancelled. They answer right away via email. It was enjoyable tour.

We received an email the evening before at our hotel which was delivered to our room. It requested that we would be collected at 8:00. The driver came on time and we were shuttled by Jeep to a large, clean air conditioned coach with many other passengers. The tour was very good - and yes there was a pit stop at the antiques / art gallery to see beautiful carpets. I found no pressure to buy anything as the prices ranged from £100s - £1000s. It was also an opportunity to visit the washroom. Our guide did an excellent job as there was a wide range of ages and walking difficulties. I wouldn't recommend if you have trouble walking as you do have to move quite quickly. The ride across the creek in the abra boat was wonderful but I wish I could've spent more time exploring the souk. After visiting the Burj between 2-2:30, we ended our tour at the Dubai Mall. We ate lunch , saw the ice rink, waterfall and aquarium and waited until 6pm to see the dancing fountains
