Shamil and Faisal were both excellent guides. I would not have had anyone else. They are very polite, friendy, professional and approachable. Very accomodating to meet your needs. Highly recommend them to assist you with any trips in and around Dubai.

Everything was fine, we saw a lot of places. We were very satisfied, Ikram was very nice and wanted to show everything how this was possible in a short time. I can only recommend it. LG Tibor

Sylvester was an exceptional guide, he made sure we had fun while still taking in mind all the safety guidelines, we highly reccomend him!

Great adventure. Great fun. Amazing atmosphere. Nice people and a DJ who rocked the entire yacht with his music. It was worth it.
