Guest reviews

Private whirlwind layover tour at night. Tamour, our guide, was wonderful, and a great ambassador for the UAE. We saw and did more than we ever imagined in a short 3 hours.
The tour guide, Amir, was extremely nice and knowledgeable. Made me feel very comfortable as a solo traveler. Loved all the different sites I saw in just 4 hours!
Great service. Very nice and professional driver. Great communication. Recommended and will definitely use again.
Samir my guide was knowledgeable, personable and accommodating as we drove to the top sights in the city. Ride was comfortable and safe. The man knows his history and architecture, which I appreciated as a former architect. Wow what a story this city has created in such a short time frame. III can’t go wrong with a professional at the wheel - 5 stars to my guide and the team that supports him
Sameer was an awesome guide! We booked the tour very last minute (at 12.30am after we touched down in Dubai) and had only 2 hours to spare for a quick night tour. Sameer brought us to the 2 key places we wanted to stop by for photos (Burj Khalifa & Burj Al Arab) + a few other places & we even get to try a local food all within 2 hours! We'll definitely be back to Dubai again for a proper trip! 🙂
Sameer was amazing! He showed me all of the biggest stops in Dubai, made sure I got the perfect photo shot for each stop, and got me back to the airport promptly. he made me feel so much more comfortable than I would have as a solo, female traveler. I loved learning about the history of Dubai as well as what daily life is like here. I hope to come back to Dubai and do more tours with Sameer soon.
Sameer was the perfect guide making my tour of Dubai a memorable experience I'd definitely do it again on my return
Wasim has given us the best time in Dubai. Thanks wasim bhai, a big thanks to you from Nishkalank, Sri Ramya, Arnav and Aadhya
Sameer is a superb tour guide in addition to being a safe driver. He has excellent knowledge of Dubai and was able to express it very well. Our time with the tour was only 4 hours and he made the most of it. He also helped us get some scrumptious vegetarian breakfast from a local restaurant. Sameer is also a great photographer and took many pictures of us that we’ll cherish for a long time 😊. Thanks Sameer for a wonderful experience! We would rate Sameer 7 star guide given the choice!
Sameer really maximized our few hours in Dubai. Very informative and worthwhile to get a quick overview of the city!
Sharing a meal at a local restaurant that cooked camel ( tastes like beef just leaner). My Auntie adopting another son.
Waseem was the best. He fit us in right on time and we got to see quite a bit of the city. He knows it all. Highly recommend.
A great way to spend your layover! Asim was fantastic! He communicated well, showed us some great places (both unknown and known to us), and we very knowledgeable! Customs in Dubai is SUPER easy for Americans. If you have a layover, do it!
Sameer was an excellent tour guide. We visited Palm Island. Very flexible and knowledgeable. I highly recommend.
Dubai never sleeps, as Waseem proved on my wee hours of the morning layover tour. From a souk shop open late (bad for my budget, good for my senses) to where Dubai originated, and on to modern day Dubai with all its opulence, this was a fun, educational and impressive tour. Glad I escaped the airport for a few hours to do this!
Asim was a great tour guide! He took us to a restaurant where we had some great authentic food and was very knowledgeable about the sites that we saw.
Took the night layover tour with Waseem. He was very accommodating to our schedule and hit the major highlights of Dubai for us in a short amount of time. Very knowledgeable of Dubai/UAE history. Highly recommend.
Highly recommend this tour. Waseem did a fantastic job showing me around to all the best attractions in Dubai while providing commentary and insight. He was flexible and was able to start the tour earlier than I had booked, took me to a spice shop to try some amazing saffron tea, and it was overall a great tour.
Was nervous about having a long layover in the middle of the night but this tour made it easy to make the best of it! Waseem picked us up, had cold waters for us and drove us to see all the sights. He explained the history of UAE and dubai along the way, and was very kind and charismatic. He got us some saffron tea, and helped us get a late night bite . Couldnt have asked for a better way to see dubai or to spend a long layover. If you're thinking about booking a tour, DO IT ! and request WASEEM
We had only 6hrs layover and wanted to make most of it. Waseem helped us make the most of it. He was very informative and friendly. We will surely visit Dubai again to experience the beauty.
