Very bad experience! Beware of the scam!
Caroline_D

Not a great experience at all! We booked this trip as a family and all was going fine until we were taken to the Gold & spice souks. When we got there we were railroaded in to one particular spice shop where we felt pressured in to buying something. Just to show willing and to get out of there asap we bought a jar of tea and a jar of spice. The man selling it insisted we paid by card, which I foolishly did. As I was paying, the man was making inappropriate comments in front of my wife and son which I later realised was obviously done to distract me. Fortunately, my 13yr old son was stood next to me and saw the amount I had been charged and converted it to sterling. I then checked my account and saw that I had been charged £350 for the two jars of what was probably worth no more than a fiver! The guide who was with us must have known this was something they tried on with tourists so surely he should have warned us, I can only assume that he must have been in on it too. My advise would be to stay clear!

Many places to visit but it didn't fullfill my expectati
Ananda_G

The tour was good, good explanation and so many places to see and visit. However, for solo travellers, it was not a good experience as I felt that our guide was "pleasing" the other couple to get good reviews and my needs were not satisfied as it was very hot and they were very fast. I asked them to go slower and they didn't care! A tour must be fit the needs of all participants as everybody pay the same rate and every client must be respected!

Dubai Day Trip

It was a small group since it’s summer time. Guide was too friendly and shared his personal stories on one on one guests. There were two couples and one lady and myself only. He gave lot of informations and answered lot of questions of other guests and help to take pictures. Unfortunately I felt like it was too personalized and always talking about how rich and luxurious lifestyle Emiratis live. It’s bit disappointing. He had some facts even wrong about some attraction. I didn’t like the touching and too much friendliness since I’m a women traveling solo. Other lady suggested that we get off from the Dubai Mall to see Future Museum. The guide agreed to drop us but to pick-up at Dubai Mall 5pm. (I didn’t know why he agreed even though it was a small group). We came exactly 5pm but didn’t know the exact place so he asked us to meet at Waitrose exit and waited there for 15mins and run back n forth from entrance to store to find him as he said he will pick us up. He was upset that other guests had to wait. He mentioned that they don’t do that before and we harassed other guests. We understood that he was really upset about it. We felt so bad that we get off. All in all I did see lot of attractions. Only missed the Dubai Frame

Hi Jazzlee, Thank you for taking time in giving your valuable feedback with regards to your experience with us., I noted some of your feedback and we will surely work on it to ensure that it will not happened again. With regards to the guide, he allowed you to explore on your own was an exemption on his part as he wanted to make sure that you will enjoyed your Dubai trip as those places were not part of our usual itinerary and since we have small group to consider he allowed that however since it hassles the other guests as they waited, surely the guide will not allowed that next time. I am glad in the end that you were able to get to see more of Dubai. Hope we will able to serve you next time in a better circumstances.

Dubai in a nutshell (Almost)

It was a very small group so easy to manage, the guide was very knowledgable and friendly, the ride was lovely and the sightseeing began from our departure not until we arrived at Dubai (Through the highway) the only thing missing was a stop at the Dubai Frame & The Museum of the Future for pictures... Another 30min or so 45 would've made this trip perfect.

LouisPhilippe_H

In about 10 hours it’s incredible how much we were able to see and enjoy. The tour is really well planned in order to admire the main buildings, but also to get to know the most traditional areas of the old town. So on the same day we saw the highest building of the world, one of the most luxurious hotels of the planet and the traditional golden and species market, were we arrived sailing on a boat. It was gorgeous and really cheap! 100% satisfied with the guide and the itinerary! Thank you so much!

A one day tour to Dubai felt like days stay. Love it!

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. He took us to some main touristic attractions and gave us a brief history of each. Not a dull moment. And did I mention his photographer's skills? :) He made sure everyone was comfortable, and also made sure everyone was present before moving on to the next location. We felt safe. We'll do it again!

Excellent tour. Not just of Dubai but the history of the Emirates during the 90 min drive to get there. We definitely saw parts we would not have seen had we done this alone. The Marina and Old Dubai as examples. Our guide (Sabu??) was fantastic. A fountain of knowledge and looked after us from start to finish. Highly recommend this tour.

It has been a very good one-day trip to Dubai. No regrets taking it. If you want to go to the Burj Khalifa top, plan at least one hour when you are at the Burj Khalifa Mall.

Very well organised and excellent guide. Faultless service from the lovely guide and Viator as a company. Would have given it 5 stars but like others say 2 hours at the mall is too long. You would have time to go up the Burj Kalifa but unless you buy a ticket in advance its way too much money.

Too much driving. Not enough time at museum. Eliminate stop at the beach. Wish the tour included a trip up the tallest building. I would think a tour company could negotiate prices and times with the building.
