Great tour’ Basheer was punctual, friendly and well informed. I loved the mosque and boat to souk the best. He took great pictures and told stories of the locations.

Our guide, Angelica was so informative and accommodating. She managed our time really well especially at the Souk and managed to get our companions who had an earlier flight, back on time to the hotel for the shuttle. We enjoyed the narrative as she showed us New Dubai and took us to Old Dubai. Well worth your time, our group enjoyed the tour, and thumbs up to Angelica!

Was picked up on time with respect and the guide who also was the driver had good communication skill. Had to wait long time for couple who disappeared. Should have been told to get back at certain time. On the whole a good outing.

Visiting old and Modern Dubai was great! Our tour guide Angelica made our tour very interesting. It was like she could guessed our questions without us asking them. She explained the difference between the old and modern Dubai and the importance each one has. And visiting the mosque was very interesting and different. Thank you angelica for making the tour interesting
