This was a great tour. Shakil (not O’Neal) was an amazing tour guide. He was so knowledgeable about each and every place he took me to and even places along the way. He answered many of my questions that I had been seeking answers to. We had local food in the traditional fashion. Having been here for 6 months, it was great to see something new. The mountains are breathtaking. I was lucky to be the only one on my tour so it made the experience that much better. There was so much to see that I wouldn’t have been able to had I tried to visit these places via metro. I love learning about other cultures. Thanks again Shakil!

I was lucky enough to be the only person on this tour today and yet Zee went out of his way to make this an unforgettable day! Visiting the mosque was fantastic and informative (for a non-muslim). After the mosque the day was filled with many other special places and fantastic scenery. Do yourself a favour and book this tour! 5 * out of 5 for Zee.

Very good tour and a great alternative if you have extra time to visit less touristy places. We went to the mosque and only 4 other people were there. Great to experience things in quiet and take great photos. Lots of other sites were shown. Best to do when it’s not too hot.

Very good tour with Riz very good tour guide fujairah museum was closed today however not the tour guides fault. But was still a very good tour would recommend to friends coming to Dubai

That was an amazing program with Riz Guide, who know everything about UAE. We saw the other side of UAE, which was very interesting and impressive after the skyscrapers in Dubai.
