Started off a little slow with shuttle buses meeting up with the main coach but once it got going it proved to be well organised. In fact it was a cracking little trip with lots of interesting facts thrown in by the tour guide. Apologies I can’t remember his name but he was Serbian. He was very pleasant and his language skills second to none. We visited the Jumeirah Mosque, the Dubai museum which were both enjoyable. Then we crossed the creek on a traditional boat and visited the Souk. Probably robbed blind by the traders but an enjoyable experience. I find the UAE very safe with everyone respectful. Got back to the hotel in JBR a little later than expected but this couldn’t be helped as the traffic is horrendous. All in all it was great value, well run and everyone of the staff were pleasant and helpful. Would recommend this trip to anyone who wanted an interesting afternoon learning a few facts about the country you are visiting.

The tour guide was excellent and overall a good tour. The tour is done in a coach bus, not an open top bus so not easy to see the sights.

The tour was both in English and German. Would suggest only one language to be used during the tour.

On time pickup, the guide was explaining all. it's a tour that you can see the old town and that's worth it.

This is a good half day tour to get your bearings around Dubai and also some history about the city. My one criticism is that the sound system on the coach wasn't very good and we couldn't always hear the commentary.

We saw most sites and guide was very informative and pleasant. We liked the museum and the souks unfortunately the mosque was closed that day

They will give driving tour of inner dubai and free tour of mosque and museum. It’s all waste of time but guide was nice and well knowledgeable about their legal system.
