Excellent tour both days. 4 wheel drive into the desert was exhilarating to say the least. The Bedouin dinner banquet and dancing at night was wonderful.
Good to see different areas of the city and earn about Mosque life and customs.

In addition to the Emirate Meal this is a tour that should be taken at the start of one's vacation. It provides a good introduction to the city itself and some of the historical background. Having talked to other people who took a group tour, I would highly recommend taking this private tour, as it gives more time at each stop and is also more flexible for any personal interests.

We booked the tour on-line which was easy to do and offered what we were looking for. We were picked up on-time from our hotel by our guide who was also driving our private vehicle which was comfortable and fully air conditioned. From start to finish he was friendly, courteous and very knowledgeable giving us great information about Dubai and the places we visited.
We never felt rushed, we were given time to explore the places we visited on our own, but had been given all the information we needed ahead of each stop. The tour we had, took just over 4 hours but we could have taken longer if needed.
I would thoroughly recommend anybody who wants to learn a bit more about Dubai to take this tour and I would certainly look to use La Vacanza Travel again in other places we may visit in the future.

We were picked up from our hotel in a people carrier and it was just the 4 of us with a driver and a very knowledgeable guide. We were taken out to the beach and saw the sail shaped Burj hotel, then to the old town where we visited a mosque. From there we were taken on a ferry across the river to the gold market and had a chance to walk through and look at the spice shops and the intricate gold work.
Meanwhile the driver had driven round to pick us up when we were ready. We then finished by going to an old fort which had been restored and made into a museum. Our guide was very attentive and informative. We were then dropped back at our hotel. A really interesting day.
