die tour war fantastisch und zu 100% zu empfehlen. wer gerne selber am steuer sitzt - und keine rückenprobleme hat - wird seine freude haben! mit Omar hatten wir einen qualifizierten und witzigen guide - es hat einfach total spass gemacht und wir wurden bestens verpflegt (wasser) und geführt. am schluss gab es noch leckere schrimps und dattelsekt zur erfrischung, auch um ein abholtaxi wurde sich gekümmert, service von A-Z top!!!! einfach weltklasse.

Amazing but poor directions to the place

5* for the experience, amazing day and the best activity to do in Dubai. 0* for directions to the meeting place. Changed two hours before via email - if I did not have internet access I would not have seen this - and then very vague instructions on where to meet. No name of the place, just "behind Miraj Islamic centre, near KFC." Absolutely abysmal, walked around for half an hour looking for the place.

Excellent & Lot of Fun !!

Most fun we’ve ever had out in Dubai! Brandon & Co were excellent hosts in leading us on an independent speedboat trip for 1.5hrs across the coast past Burj Al Arab, Madinat Jumeirah upto Atlantis and back across the open ocean towards the World Islands.. Amazing, Safe and thrilling excursion - we did the 5pm trip and have never felt closer to Dubai’s amazing sunset out on the ocean! Great job guys, would definitely do again !!
