Excellent tour both days. 4 wheel drive into the desert was exhilarating to say the least. The Bedouin dinner banquet and dancing at night was wonderful.
Good to see different areas of the city and earn about Mosque life and customs.
In addition to the Emirate Meal this is a tour that should be taken at the start of one's vacation. It provides a good introduction to the city itself and some of the historical background. Having talked to other people who took a group tour, I would highly recommend taking this private tour, as it gives more time at each stop and is also more flexible for any personal interests.
We booked the tour on-line which was easy to do and offered what we were looking for. We were picked up on-time from our hotel by our guide who was also driving our private vehicle which was comfortable and fully air conditioned. From start to finish he was friendly, courteous and very knowledgeable giving us great information about Dubai and the places we visited.
We never felt rushed, we were given time to explore the places we visited on our own, but had been given all the information we needed ahead of each stop. The tour we had, took just over 4 hours but we could have taken longer if needed.
I would thoroughly recommend anybody who wants to learn a bit more about Dubai to take this tour and I would certainly look to use Viator again in other places we may visit in the future.
We were picked up from our hotel in a people carrier and it was just the 4 of us with a driver and a very knowledgeable guide. We were taken out to the beach and saw the sail shaped Burj hotel, then to the old town where we visited a mosque. From there we were taken on a ferry across the river to the gold market and had a chance to walk through and look at the spice shops and the intricate gold work.
Meanwhile the driver had driven round to pick us up when we were ready. We then finished by going to an old fort which had been restored and made into a museum. Our guide was very attentive and informative. We were then dropped back at our hotel. A really interesting day.
Great tour. Amazing insights into historic Dubai. Well balanced - old and new
Our guide showed us all the sites, on our own schedule...best way to see the city!
We were really tired from flight but these guys did a good job. The prices at the Souk are a rip off. Don't buy there.
Really informative and very accommodating guide and driver, the only thing that we would have preferred not to have done was visit the gallery which consisted of a hard sale after being shown around.
We asked for tour to start at 11 am usually it satrts on 10, it is supposed to be 4,5 hrs tour, but it lasted only for 3,5 hrs. Our guide was all the time in a hurry, asked us to hurry, we actualy had no time to see anything of spice and gold markets souks, he just took us to the first shop to buy some spices for souvenirs-very expensive shop, of course. Also, the heritage village is nothing to see, they show you some carpets and then expect you to buy them, souvenirs are 5 times more expensive in the village then anywhere else. I was disappointed
Not that many things to see the guide kept saying why did you book on a Friday IWell heres a thought why didnt you refuse the booking if it was too much of an effort. I was unaware never having been to Dubai that Friday was like the sabbath and most shops were either not open or only opened after 1pm. Tour pick up was originally 9am. Company changed it till 12noon after we rang to confirm pick up time .most of the time was spent driving around and we would get somewhere and then get 10 minutes to take a photo of a hotel . Boring
