What people are saying about The World Dubai

The mosque is an enchantment. The guide is always available and attentive and they gave us women the clothes to be able to access the mosque and water to cool off. The drop on / off service to join the tour is also very convenient. Absolutely recommended.

Awesome experience! very relaxing to get there with a tour and guide. The trip by car seems faster due to the nice stories from the guide. Also lots of info and stories from the guide when at the mosque. The mosque is a must-see!

Muito bonita a Mesquita! o Parque da Ferrari ße bem bacana, algumas atracasse não recomendo para pessoas de coração fraco... e infelizmente algumas atrações como o simulador tem que pagar por fora.

Recommended! The mosque is really beautiful and the guide (Adnan) gave a lot of good explanations. Since I was traveling alone, he was also my private photographer :-)

Excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable and super friendly.
