Overall rating

We did the tour with Amira a few days ago and were very excited thanks to the good reviews and weren't disappointed either. She was super nice and friendly and went out of her way. We were able to see a lot and also learned a lot about Dubai that we didn't know at all. Everything was super organized and worked smoothly from pickup to return transfer. It was definitely worth it and we can only recommend the tour

Great way to see the city at my own pace. I ended up doing it twice so I could enjoy both the blue and red line. Alexandre was one of the guides at the stops and was amazing. We had a great conversation and he was very helpful!

Wow!! It was amazing!!! It was worth it!! The food, the view and the atmosphere were great!!! Definitely, will go again!!

Very impressive & beautiful! However, the meeting point is very difficult to find since there are no signs at all.

Capitàni rama ajith and his team bravo bella gita!
