Overall rating

4.4
(22,094 reviews)

Really enjoyed both experiences. We went to the Burj at 10am (arrived on time) and went straight in. It was a good time to go as it wasn’t too busy. We got a taxi to the mall and it probably took about 10 minutes to walk to the entrance of the Burj. The mall itself is a bit confusing, as it is so big, but there are plenty of staff members about to ask for directions. The aquarium was better than expected and definitely worth a visit.

It was a wonderful experience! We got to see Dubai in a way we couldn’t have without it. We got to see places and hear about the history we don’t usually hear of before. Our tour guides were really nice and wonderful picture takers, and would love to experience again!

for the short time we had, we managed to see alot and our guide Lal Waraich and his Driver were fantastic. he for sure new his stuff about the History of Dubai and the Country. it for sure is a great experience for a short Layover

The surprise boat ride was fun and Assain was very accommodating as some of us were hungry so he organised we stop for a camel burger.

Views of the city were amazing …. Staff were friendly and very helpful.
