We had a great time on our walking tour, the group was small and the perfect size. Our guide was funny and informative about Dubai and it's history, we came away learning loads and got great tips for whenever we were shopping in the market. Would recommend to anyone thinking of booking the tour.

Our guide, Mr. Abdallah from Sudan, was ab excellent, competent, inspiring and entertaining tour guide. He spoke good German, had detailed knowledge about Dubai history, society and culture and he was very friendly. The tour itself was well planned, and interesting, because of the variety of localities we could visit.

Dubai Aladdin Tour: Souks, Creek, Old Dubai and Tastings ( Small-Group)
I highly recommend this tour, it was way more educational than I expected, all places we visited were beautiful and the guide gave us great tips to haggle. The only downside is that you only have 15-20 minutes in each market to purchase things, so you will need to stay by yourself after the tour or go back another day if you want to shop more.

Old and Modern Dubai City tour with Dubai Frame Tickets
This tour was a great way to see Dubai. We enjoyed the stops, especially the stops in "old" Dubai. Our tour guide, Riah, was incredible and so knowledgeable. She was kind and patient with our group. She also made sure we weren't being swindled in the market. When we made purchases, she chimed in and negotiated a lower price for us. I definitely wouldn't have shopped as well without her. She went above and beyond.

I enjoyed the tour with Hamza very much, he was informative and friendly. It was a very hot evening and he did his best to keep us in shady areas, and to give us opportunities to sit down in air conditioning.

Great Helicopter and Sightseeing

Dubai Helicopter The Vision Tour – 22 Min
The professionalism and the helicopter are perfect. The reason I am leaving one star off is that I’m several times before our trip I confirmed a specific time and then the day before they changed it where it interfered with previous plans and nowhere do they mention needing a passport so we had to rush back to the hotel to grab it.

Dubai Aladdin Tour: Souks, Creek, Old Dubai and Tastings ( Small-Group)
This tour was amazing. We got to see ally of old Dubai and learn so much about the culture. When we went to the souks, our tour guide made sure we were knowledgeable about regular prices and some tactics merchants use to get your attention. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the city and really gave use the highlights we needed. He also introduced us to some very nice people around the souks. 10/10 high recommend. Perfect for long layovers or part of your Dubai holiday.
