For the price I paid for two passengers I would not recommend this particular tour. Our tour guide at times seemed very disinterested and complained on a regular basis how hot it was. This was our first time in Dubai and I did not like being taken to places where it was quite obvious that the reason we were there was to purchase goods as was equally obvious that the guide was provided with a kick back if we did purchase. The tour in Australian dollars worked out to be about 500 and in my opinion was not worth that kind of money. Would not use this company again or recommend.

what to expect

Start with a pickup from your centrally located Dubai hotel by air-conditioned vehicle. As you travel, talk to your private guide about the itinerary and any particular sights you want to see; as the tour is private, your itinerary can be tailored around your interests.
Arrive at Palm Jumeirah, a stunning man-made archipelago just off the coast, and ride the monorail to Atlantis The Palm, the spectacular hotel perched on the islands’ outer fringes.
Stop for photos by the eye-catching resort, and then travel back along the Palm’s spine to view the glitzy Burj Al-Arab hotel. Continue to Dubai Museum, set in an old fort in the historical Bastakiya quarter. Head inside with your guide and see Dubai’s history charted through the exhibits with recreated houses, souks and mosques.
Board an abra, a traditional wooden taxi boat, and cross Dubai Creek to the Deira quarter. Step ashore and walk through the aromatic Spice Souk before passing the glittering outlets of the Gold Souk. Enjoy free time to browse for souvenirs, and then travel to Dubai Mall, home of the Burj Khalifa tower.
Ride the elevator up the world’s tallest building — at 2,772 feet (828 meters) high — and take in 360-degree views of the city from the ‘At the Top’ observation deck on the 124th floor. Then, glide back down the tower to watch an evening Dubai Fountain show at Burj Khalifa Lake.
Watch the multicolored jets and cascades shimmy in time to the music, and then end your tour with a hotel drop-off. Alternatively, finish your tour in the downtown area to enjoy your evening independently.
