Where shall I begin? The collection from hotel was prompt, we then went to collect others. One pick up was a no show, we waited 30 mins for them and the guide had to fill in paperwork,, we werent pleased. As it went on we stopped at the atlantis beach view first, we were only given 15 mins and were called when my elderly mother needed to use the toilet.. although the itineray states 20-30 mins -this was incorrect. Next stop was burj al arab - pic stop only. 5 mins if that. I asked the guide re: madinat souq, he states he thought burj would be better as madinate jumeirah was busy? Again, I let it go, as I thought sometimes tour companies can change perhaps one option depending on local changes right? Zabeel palace was missed, we were taken to a merchant house, which was not on our itineray and was literally a whistle stop. We took the abra over and the spice market wasnt actuaully what we expected.. we were taken into a mans shop who gave us tasters of dates and chocolate... which some people bought and then were given 30-40 mins in the gold souq (where nobody wanted to buy anything) So all in all, no zabeel palace, no souq madinat, literally (I kid you not) 12 mins at jumeria mosque, 15 mins at the beach oh and the itineray mentions burj khalifa,.. nope, I had to literally state I wanted to go! and they only took us for a photo stop not the 30-4o mins in itinerary. When I showed the guide the tripadvisor information of where and how long each stop should be he made me feel almost guilty for stating this! He said " actually Im just taking you on the tour the tour company have given us" he then asked me to send him over the tripadvisor advisor advert. He told me they would be in trouble if it came from us... I said I wouldnt say a thing however on reflection, I changed my mind... why? because people work hard for their money and to have to literally beg to go to a stop that was on the itineray? was a shambles... May I point at this point another few on the trip went their own way at the gold souq... Sometimes you may wonder a trip price is too good to be true? It is if they miss most places out and only give you 5-12 minutes there... Would NEVER go with this company again. Whilst out tour guide was a nice man....I wouldnt recommend this to anyone. Try another tour company.

The route was alright, you could see the city from different angles; the guide, however, was rather mediocre, his explanations (if any) were superficial and he repeated sentences a lot, at stops he let us walk ourselves and did not the explain the sights at hand (mosce etc) - all in all i cannot recommend the tour

The tour guide was kind of rude and rushed a lot. He was snapping at other guests like they were children which I found to be disrespectfully. One lady asked to use the bathroom and he sighed and rolled his eyes, seemed very visibly frustrated/irritated. I tried to ask one question about the culture and was brushed off and never answered. He seemed very preoccupied with always moving to the next thing. Generally not super informative either. Kept repeating the most irrelevant information, like a particular location having lots of hotels. I did however like the stops on the tour! Got a lot of cool pictures. I think I could have had a better experience if the time was allocated differently. Some things got way too much time while others got basically no time at all.

Both driver and the guide were very helpful. We were giving water to cool us down. The guide was able to answer questions

Water taxi to the Spice Souk and Gold Souk. Was fun to see the waterfront area by boat. Very nice short ride. Our guide and van met us on the other side.
