I love taking small group city tours every time I travel, but it’s always a gamble as there are so many companies out there and quality isn’t consistent. Well, this tour was so incredibly worth it and I would recommend to anyone looking for a guided tour of the city. The group was really small at 7 people (it was Jan.1st) we had a small bus that would drop us off as close as possible to the stops; an expert guide, Maaz Khan, who gave us so much great information about everything we were seeing, took phenomenal pictures of us at every stop and not to mention we were first at every location before the majority of tourists arrived. Everything was so well planned and thought of it almost felt like a private tour. Excellent experience overall.

The tour was amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Emirati culture. His experience added rich depth to our experience. We were also impressed with how much we covered in what seemed like a quick 6 hours. They even included a short boat ride which I was not loving at first since I get sea sick but in the end it was short and well worth it. I also recommend them because the large bus gave us the opportunity to spread out especially during these COVID times even though we are all vaccinated.

I can’t say enough. Highly recommend this tour. This is my second time in Dubai and it’s been 10 years since my last visit and his insight as a tour guide brought us up to date with changes since the last time we were here.

I also like that they take our questions and respond to our curiosity even about Islam and more. It was an enriching experience.

A must do tour if you visit Dubai! It was made even more memorable by our awesome, extremely knowledgeable and jovial tour guide - Mr. Adnan!!

He was patient and welcomed our questions, took the time to explain and clarify anything we requested. There’s soo much about the history of UAE that I was not aware about and I left richer in knowledge and most grateful for the knowledge he imparted on my children who I had travelled with.

Besides the knowledge, there were spectacular spots where we took the professional pictures and he also took time to snap us photos with our phones. The tours and sightseeing were not rushed, we had a shared ride and he gave ample time and accommodated our children and those of the family we travelled with. I wanted a picture at the Dubai Frame and he incorporated into the tour and got us shots there.

Thank you Adnan for being a part of our DBX adventure and capturing lovely moments! We received our photos within 2 days of the tour which was exciting as we could see them even before we left the country. At the end of the trip, we tasted coffee & dates plus Ragag (Delish), what a way to be immersed in culture!

So if you visit Dubai, we would recommend this tour, the response time is timely and all instructions are provided well in advance. Ask for Adnan, he’s great!

With his permission; I’ve shared a picture of Adnan serving coffee, dates and Ragag to us. 🙏🏾

We did the 5 hour Dubai city tour with our guide/photographer Maaz Khan and had a great time! We booked the tour through Get Your Guide, and it was run by a local company called OceanAir Travels.

The night before the tour, OceanAir sent us detailed information regarding pickup and things to expect/bring for the tour. Khan then sent us a separate WhatsApp to give us an approximate time he would pick us up and to answer any questions we had.

The morning of the tour, we were picked up from our hotel and was greeted by Khan waiting for us in the lobby. I loved that the tour was kept as a small group because of COVID and because it allowed for Khan to give us more time and attention, instead of being herded around like cattle on one of those big bus tours. We were able to visit some of the known sites in the city without the hassle of having to find our way around. At each site, we were able to explore on our own a little bit and Khan patiently waited if we wanted more time.

Khan was very knowledgeable about each of the sites and gave us lots of information and great conversation. He also took lots of photos of us on his camera as well as on our phones, which is great because its always hard to stop others to help you take photos while on vacation and they are not as patient in terms of getting a good shot. Khan took us to great photo spots, walked us through poses that he knew looked good, and took other shots based on our own preferences/suggestions.

TLDR: all in all, good tour to get a brief summary and information on what the city has to offer and get great photos without the hassle of flagging strangers down or lugging your own gear. Not for if you want to spend a lot of time at one place, but this will help you narrow down things to do or places to revisit.

Communication:
I was on a solo trip to Dubai. I booked this tour as a last minute activity and communications with the tour agency was good. They informed me of when I should expect to be picked up for the tour. On the day of the tour, my guide was Shakil and he called/messaged before the pickup time.

The Tour & Tour Guide:
Together with two other tour participants (also travelling solo), we were shown around Dubai by Shakil and he suggested places to see and take photos…with interesting fun facts along the way. He was immensely helpful in taking photos with his camera and our phones. At the end of the tour, I came away with lots of photos and good memories. It felt more like a private tour with equal attention given to each participant, customised photo sessions, photos spots and poses. For me, it was important to be shown around or photographed by someone who had a friendly personality, as well as good knowledge of the city and its people…an important factor to look out for if you’re planning to do this activity.

The Photos:
A couple of days after the tour, the photos were shared with me via Google drive and the quality was impressive. Still good experience with comms from the agency.
I would’ve preferred sunnier weather but oh well…my trip was in January and I booked the tour on what turned out to be a rainy and windy day.

Tip: Take a change of clothes if you wish.

I am happy I took this tour and would recommend it. My activity was on a rainy, cloudy, and windy day, but thankfully Shakil had a commendable personality to encourage smiling during the photoshoots. Oh, and he came prepared with bottles of water, umbrella, and abaya for the ladies during the Mosque visit.

I hope you book it and I hope you have a pleasant experience.

Our friendly city guide and photographer Adnan picked up all group participants on time from their respective hotels. We were a colorful mixed group of singles and a couple from different countries. Adnan managed to quickly establish a pleasant atmosphere in our group, so we often laughed during our tour. On the way to the individual stops, Adnan told us a lot about the individual sights / attractions not only of Dubai, but of the Emirates as a whole. Not monotonously, but in a casual way, which always included us.We could also ask questions at any time, which he has competently answered to the best of his knowledge and conscience. He was impressed by his many years of experience. What I also found very good is that he always included us in the stops and asked for special stops on the way to the stops, so that every tour participant had the opportunity to propose his attration he will see. Even as a photographer I can only recommend Adnan without hesitation. He didn’t just take excellent pictures of me. Even by own pictures, he often gave all group participants competent support for poses and light, which was noticeable in the originality and quality of the pictures. His knowledge of Islamic culture and faith were outstanding. It was impressive to see how safe, competent and convincing he performed it in an ever more relaxed atmosphere. Although I have often travelled to the Emirates, I found the tour with Adnan as guide totally enriching and informative. Adnan was a friendly and knowledgeable guide during the whole tour. I also met him as a very likable person.

הזמנו דרך סוכן חיצוני סיור לעיר העתיקה והחדשה של דובאי להיום 25/4/22 .
אנחנו זוג פלוס ילד בן 5.5 ,אנחנו חייבים לציין לטובה קודם כל את המדריך שלנו rizwan שהיה מדוייק בזמנים .
אסף והחזיר אותנו למלון וכל הסיור הועבר בהסברים מפורטים ובנועם ובסבר פנים יפות.
היה לנו ממש כייף ונהננו מאוד מחברתו שאפילו שיתפנו
נושאים אחרים בנינו.
לסיכום אנחנו מנקדים את הכל מההתחלה ,האווירה ועד לסוף הסיור כציון 10/10.
תודה על הכל עד לפעם הבאה בדובאי.

We booked through an external tour of Dubai's old and new city for today 25/4/22.
We are a couple plus a 5.5 year old child, we must mention first of all our guide rizwan which was accurate at times.
Collected and took us back to the hotel and the whole tour was passed with explanations and kindness and beautiful hospitality.
He had a lot of fun and we really enjoyed his company that we even shared
Other issues.
In conclusion we score everything from the beginning, the atmosphere to the end of the tour as a 10/10 score.
Thanks for everything until next time in Dubai

Salma, from OceanAir Travels, was very courteous and thorough answering all our questions in preparation for our tour. Zeeshan, our guide, was very knowledgeable and courteous as well. He is fluent in Spanish, so we were very comfortable speaking in our mother language. The tour went on, even when nobody else booked for that day, so we were alone in the car, which made tour even more personal. We enjoyed every minute of our experience with Zeeshan and will recommend this tour to anyone who wants an introduction to this amazing city and its culture.

This is the best way to get to know Dubai's main sights in a comfortable, fun, and interesting way. The best part was our guide Mohammed Ali, he not only provided very interesting and helpful facts about Dubai but he also made it very fun and enjoyable. As a plus he is an expert in showing the best spots for pictures and also an expert in helping you take those pictures. The tour was in English but we were able to talk to him in Spanish as well since he is very fluent in both languages besides his native language. We met some couples from Spain that took the Abu Dabi tour with the same company and with Mohammed Ali as their tour guide the day after we left and told us exactly the same: a totally enjoyableI experience. I would give them 10 out of 5 stars if I could and would definitely book them again when I visit Dubai, people like Mohamed makes you wanna come visit this places more often. Thanks a lot to the tour company, to the driver, and to our wonderful guide Mohamed Ali. Gracias hermano! Shukran Habibi!!
