The guide was very nice, courteous and was always able to answer questions. Well organized tour with many things worth seeing. You could not only hear a lot about the buildings, but also about the history. For the price then also unbeatable. All in all a must for every tourist who wants to learn more about Dubai.

They came to pick us from the hotel, transfer us to our tour bus (the timeing hasn't been the best). After departing from Burj al Arab we had the best guide, both in english and german. From there we had a nice tour. Drop-off at the hotel was included as well. Good value for money.

It took a while to get going, think it did not start till mid afternoon once all had been picked up from various hotels. It was not perfect listening to the commentary in both German and English, would have preferred an English audio. May have been better to stop at Al Fahidi rather than the Gold Souk, a more interesting area. However trip on the abra boat was good, and visits to the Dubai Museum and other stops also good.
