A little slow getting us collected from various places. George the Egyptian guide did a great job. The national museum deserves more time than the 40 minutes we were allowed.

We were in Dubai only a couple of days and decided to book a half day city tour in order to have hassle free sight seeing. We got hotel pickup on Palm Jumeirah which was nice! It’s a nice 4 hour tour that allows you to see many sights without the constraint of it consuming the whole day. Friendly tour guide.

Amazing City. Fast growing and vibrant. Only trouble is that some Hotels do not serve alcohol and we love a wine or Beer with dinner. We found out on the last day that we could have purchased some Wine and/or Beer at the Mall of the Emirates which was very close to where we were staying, however, we needed to have our passports. Shop was very hard to find. They should cater for tourists.

Was collected from our hotel crammed in a 7 seater car and taken to beach front area to meet coach. Left for approx 30 minutes in 45C heat with no shade. Once on the coach, tour was quite enjoyable and guide knowledgeable.

Guide was knowledgeable. Tour stops ok. 40 minutes late for pickup and 2 hours late for return. They didn't organise enough cars for passengers on the bus so we had to stand by the side of the road for ages waiting for a drop off car. Wouldn't use this company again.
