Full description
Make the most of your transit through Dubai International Airport, and see the highlights of the city on a short stop-over tour. Following a pick-up from Dubai International Airport, sit back and relax in an air-conditioned coach or minivan as you drive towards New Downtown Dubai. Stop at the Burj Khalifa to admire the world’s tallest building. Look up at the space-age tower as it soars to a height of 2,772 feet (828 meters). Lean back and peer upwards; you might just see the top! Drive along the 16-lane Sheikh Zayed Road, passing many of the high rise buildings that have changed the city landscape in the last few years. A pre-recorded commentary by an architect will tell you facts about the skyscraper-packed city and its recent developments. See the iconic Burj Al-Arab Hotel on its own artificial island. Continue to the manmade island of Palm Jumeirah, designed in the shape of a palm tree. Discover luxury villas and exclusive hotels with enviable views of the gulf. Marvel at The Atlantis The Palm Hotel - arguably the island’s most famous building - imperiously perched on the edge of the Persian Gulf. Look at the promenade and yacht-filled Dubai Marina, and imagine life as an international billionaire. See the spectacular Jumeirah Beach Residence, home to dozens of franchise restaurants and cafés, and close to some of the best beach hotels and resorts in the city. Then, transfer back to the airport in time for your connecting flight.

It was a great experience in dubai for short time. I had layover for 6hrs but I decided to choose this trip bcuz I dont wanna stuck in airport just for 6hrs doing nth. My driver, shah, he speaks english well and he try to give me a good guide. He was a "driver and guide". I think this trip is expensive but considering that u can do travel within short layover it can be worthy. Also it is important to meet a good driver and I recommend him.

The tour took place between 2am-5am and covered all the main sights. As expected, this is not a guided tour, the driver simply announced the sights, and allowed time to stop and get out to walk around. We were quite tired by the end. A little expensive for a non-guided tour but not too many options at that time.

I thought this would be a tour but it was really just a chauffer for three hours. The driver didn't really have any details so I had him drop me at the mall and I did the aquarium/Burj khalifa walk around then headed back for my flight. It was a great time and the driver was a super nice guy but I was expecting an actual tour, not just a driver. Could have saved money with a taxi or Uber.
