Excellent tour!! Our guide Whiskey was very friendly, knowledgeable and happy to take lots of family photos for us. He answered our many questions throughout the morning and we learnt so much about not only Dubai but also the UAE. Our air-conditioned bus was a great reprieve from the heat outside and we felt very safe in the hands of our driver Nowfal. Would highly recommend this tour!!

TomoHoku, 17-12-2022
We had only one day to explore the city, and this tour was a perfect way to understand Dubai’s history, area, culture, people, etc. In such a short time. Our guide “Whisky” was very friendly and professional, and he made the tour very fun! Thanks to him, we felt like the 6 hour was worth 6 days!

The perfect way to get to know Dubai if you are stopping over for short time. Whiskey was great, everything was on time.
Highly recommended half day trip
RAJSHEKHAR_V, 22-01-2023
This 5 hour tour covers almost all the main attractions of Dubai. The van arrived at our hotel on time and was comfortable. There were 8 of us in the tour. Whisky our guide is knowledgeable and humorous. He kept us engaged throughout the trip. Don't expect to see any site in detail as the stops last about 10 to 15 minutes. The van driver also deserves a mention for his good driving and pleasant personality.
Super nice
Alexandra_I, 20-01-2023
Our guide Whisky was extremely involved in doing his job. It was a pleasure to visit old & new Dubai with him due to the fact that it’s very funny.
Our driver named Nofel(I’m not sure if I wrote ok his name) drove safely.
In conclusion, I recommend with them this tour.
Thank you guys!
Good way to get a glimpse look at Abu dhabi in one day
Maxim S, 08-12-2022
Good trip, very friendly and knowledgeable guide Whiskey. Had some laughs and enjoyed the trip, worth the money and time.

As a pinch of salt - read the tour description carefully and ask questions because some site will be “photo stops” which counts as a check-box but doesn’t really give you the experience.
Hop on Hop off by van
Morris_J, 08-12-2022
Tour guide and tour was like doing a personalized hop on and hop off tour. At conclusion of the tour; tour guide was to drop my party at cruise ship terminal as agreed upon, but stated he had a safari Tour to do.
