The tour was just great. Our guide Amira has a lot of knowledge about the city of Dubai and explains everything calmly and in detail. She gave us a lot of time to explore the spice market ourselves. All in all, I really enjoyed this tour and can only recommend it.

It was a great tour. Intense because there are many stations. Amira is a great guide, incredibly accommodating and speaks very good German and English. The transfers from/to the hotel also worked on time.

I only had a short time in Dubai but this trip enabled me to see the highlights and what a joy they were. There was something for everyone and I thoroughly recommend the tour.

If you are not in Dubai for long and still want to see the city as well as possible, I think the tour is ideal and I can recommend it with a clear conscience!

Very nice and recommendable tour Excellent organization! Thanks to the guide amira!
