We were really happy we booked this private city tour of Dubai. We didn’t feel rushed the entire time and our guide had everything well prepared for us. We felt like we saw the entire city and she had amazing knowledge of everything to do with Dubai. She knew great photo stops for us and they were never crowded. The tour was a great value considering it includes tickets to the Burj Khalifa. Would definitely recommend!

Our guide was extremely accommodating to every request we had.

Our guide went out of her way to accommodate not only our difficulty walking in the extreme heat and humidity, she also listened to some special requests we had that were not on the itinerary. She was extremely informative and responded to every question we had. We were 100% satisfied! It was very worthwhile. ,

Great tour

Enjoyed our date, great way to get your bearings of the city and see the highlights in a short amount of time. Our guide Was wonderful. Only thing I would suggest is for them to include the fast track pass on to the Berj Khalifa tour- spent too much time in line at end of tour. Overall a great day.
