At the start of our tour our guide Ahmed Hassan greeted us with high energy, very friendly and happy. He was a good communicator and knowledgeable of Abu Dhabi and Dubai. During the tour he took amazing photos for the group with beautiful backgrounds and different pano affects. Ahmed made this tour one of the best we’ve ever experienced. If you’re thinking of coming to Dubai. Book your tour via La Vacanza Travel and ask for Ahmed Hassan as your tour guide. I would rate this a 10 star but only allow 5.
