An enjoyable half day tour of Dubai city. A well organised tour and very nice guide who managed to keep track of everyone on the tour. He spoke good English and German. It was a very hot day but the bus had great air conditioning. We had enough time at all the stops per itinerary. The bus is unable to go close to the Burg al Arab so it was a bit hot to walk all the way but still able to take a photo from the distance. I thought the Fort museum was great. His Royal Highness’s Palace was great to see also. The Abra ride to the Souks was fun. The souks were as expected a lot of annoying people trying to sell you their gold and spices. It just puts me off looking and perhaps buying. But all the same good to experience it. I thought it was fabulous value and took the hassle out of trying to visit in the heat by ourselves. I would therefore definitely recommend this tour!!
Was scheduled for 1:30pm, we actually didn’t get pick up from our hotel until around 1:55pm. The whole tour started off later than it was suppose to almost running me into my next activity so I had to separate from them and catch a taxi rather than drive back to my hotel with them. Overall it was an actual good experience and you get a chance to learn a lot from your tour guide about Dubai. They also provided us with water and allowed us to take some pictures and explore numerous of the places talked about. Don’t remember my tour guide & driver’s name but they handled everything well just need better time management.
It took a while to get going, think it did not start till mid afternoon once all had been picked up from various hotels. It was not perfect listening to the commentary in both German and English, would have preferred an English audio. May have been better to stop at Al Fahidi rather than the Gold Souk, a more interesting area. However trip on the abra boat was good, and visits to the Dubai Museum and other stops also good.
They came to pick us from the hotel, transfer us to our tour bus (the timeing hasn't been the best). After departing from Burj al Arab we had the best guide, both in english and german. From there we had a nice tour. Drop-off at the hotel was included as well. Good value for money.
Although the Tour started late, it still incorporated the allocated time and we saw all the advertised sites and was given ample free time. The tour guide I found was extremely informative and made it very enjoyable. As first timers in Dubai, I would recommend this tour.
