Our 4 hour Dubai sightseeing trip with Adnan was wonderful from start to finish. We asked lots of questions and Adnan was very happy to give us lots of interesting insights into history, culture and the vision for Dubai. This was quite honestly the best guided tour experience we have ever had. You must book this trip- fabulous in every way and in a few short hours you see so much and learn even more! Richard and Elizabeth Bell

The activity was lovely. My local guide was Ikram and he was very knowledgeable and ensuring to provide all minute details on the way. With such a short span of 3 hours it was really surprising to see that how an efficient guide can enhance your experience. The last bit of boat ride was icing on the cake. I thoroughly enjoyed this activity and also happy to meet a lovely guide and brother Ikram
