    First time with this co and highly recommended, everybody from the co are really helpfull with my needs , thank you!

    In most tours I have booked, travel time to first item in tour itinerary is not included in its length. I felt cheated.

    I have the best experience the city and staff was wonderful, we are very impressed my brothers want to caming back with the family special Raul and the want to continue in touch to get others trips , tk so much for a best vacation ever

    We did not see the Ferrari Park or the Indoor Ski Slope as was listed in our itinerary - very disappointed. Spent 80% of our time in shopping areas (souks and two Malls). The Operator did not properly prepare us for the requirements of the trip. For instance, the Mosque visit required head-to-toe covering. The group had to borrow clothing from the tour guide to cover ankles, forearms, wrists,etc. The sand dune safari in the desert was in a covered air-conditioned SUV. The description only said 4x4 so we thought we'd be outdoor, hot and covered in sand - not so - and brought clothes unnecessarily. The hotel did NOT provide electric converters. Also the hotel check out was noon while the last tour ended at 7pm with our flights scheduled for 3AM. The Operator should arrange for a late check out in this case (I had to beg the hotel manager to let us keep our room long enough to shower and change). We should be warned that the bus driver as well as the tour guide - both expect tips. The last day was a different driver and guide and they expected tips too. Which is fine - as long as we're prepared for this. Finally, the 1st 2 days of the itinerary were brutal and the last 2 days were only 1/2 day tours. This should be reversed as travelling 14 hrs to arrive in Dubai was brutal. The 1st day of tours should be the most relaxed day in order to let the travelers rest a bit.

    The hotel accommodations, excursions, and tour guide were excellent.
