The activity was good and on point there was no hanging about so if you want relaxed and slow inactivity then you will feel rushed for us it was fine as we wanted everything on point .went to the mosque enjoyed it took a few pic and were out then had spot of lunch which was good .then there were other short activities too which took around about 20min each as the coach journey is long it does get abit tiring so take some snacks and plenty to drink .

It was very easy to understand and the luck was convenient. Love the narration on the history of the area on the way down. Only negative was that you were dropped off at Dubai Mall not your hotel. Other than I had time to see everything I needed. The treat for me was seeing the embroidered tapestry which was absolutely amazing.

All very nice, logically in a single day you cannot see a capital but you can have an idea of its beauties, the tour with audio guide in Italian helps to understand some aspects that we would not have had the chance on our own, overall it is it was a fantastic tour.
