          Dubai halfday tour with visit to Dubai Gold souk
          It was magnificent, warm engaging activity. I love the crew, we were well taken care off. We learned about historic moments that made Dubai what it is today, an ionic master piece of luxury. It was an awesome activity and a must do, if you visit Dubai. Thanks team for hosting us.

          Best dunes bashing in Dubai
          I highly recommend the Orient tours for the dessert safari. One of the most safest and enjoyable dune bashing experience of my life. If you have Nasir driving the car, you up for an adventure. The camp site very good and very excellent hospitality.

          A simply must-see if you are in Dubai
          We purchased the Burj Khalifa At the Top Observation Deck Admission Ticket and went up to the 148th floor. We got treated to the VIP experience, which included no queues, express elevators, and drinks and snacks in the lounge—worth the extra cost, in my opinion. The views from the 148th floor are breathtaking, and the VIP treatment makes it even more special. You then get a chance to visit the 125th and 124th floors on your way down, which adds to the overall experience. The photos we got will be cherished forever. Highly recommend this for anyone visiting Dubai!

          Definitely worth the money and will be going again.
          Booked the Vip tour for my mum and myself and was not sure if it wad going to be worth the extra but it is well worth paying a bit more and have the special VIP treatment. We were looked after very well with food and drinks. The staff were very nice. I booked late afternoon so we're we able to see Dubai skyline during the day then sun set and then when the sun goes down and the lights come on all the building it is amazing. I will be booking it again and taking my wife.

          Really impressive
          Amazing experience, paying extra to go to the 148th floor was well worth it. It’s much quieter, more comfortable, less crowded and there’s complementary drinks and cakes. The 125/124th are good but don’t compare. Things we didn’t realise; we booked for 7pm thinking we’d get to the top at 7pm but it takes at least half an hour from going through the ticket counter to being up the tower. Also, skipping the queue works both ways, coming down as well as coming up and the queue to get down was enormous!

          Dubai tour with guide.
          Stunning views and a great history of Dubai old and new. Souks were an eye opener for someone with no experience of that style of selling.

          Burn khalif and dinner excursion
          Had a wonderful time chose 18:30 timing so was able to see the fountains in the day light and also when it started to get darker . The dinner was excellent and well presented and in my opinion good value for the price of the trip ,the meal did included a bottle of water and we paid for other drinks that again in my opinion where similar prices to London.while eating our meal the fountains were in view as are table was right next to them

          Nice attraction, poor tour operator communication
          poor communication from the tour operator led to confusion and issues upon arrival. never received my ticket from the operator but fortunately the staff at the Palms was able to assist. as for the tour, it is a nice presentation of the Palm islands and the views are worth a trip if your schedule permits.

          Private tour of Dubai was a great way to immerse yourself into the old and new Dubai!
          Chamil was our tour guide and Shiju was our driver. Both were professional and very accommodating. Chamil took us to all the amazing and iconic buildings and landmarks of Dubai. He even offered to take pics and knew where the best shots were. Learning about the old and new Dubai was interesting. He immersed us into old Dubai’s culture, which I thought was important. The 5-minute boat ride was a nice touch while Chamil talked more about the Dubai history. He accompanied us with our shopping in the old market. From the beginning of our tour to the end, Shiju always was ready to drop us off and pick us up at all the right locations where we didn’t have to do a lot of walking in the dessert heat! Since we were ahead of schedule and opted out on certain destinations, he accommodated one request, which was the museum. Overall, it was an amazing, safe and cultural experiences. Chamil and Shiju got it down well!

          Fabulous tour with Tahir in Dubai
          Fabulous tour, highly recommended for anyone wanting to experience Dubai. Tahir our guide did everything possible to make sure we had a wonderful experience. He was helpful, full of information and insight and organised every experience beautifully. From the tallest tower in the world to the Royal Palace, the gold markets, boat trip and my personal favorite - the spice market. Everyone we met was so friendly, polite and generous. We were shown aromatic spices to smell, heavenly saffron milk tea to taste and cool drinks to refresh us at every stop. Tahir took photos of us so we will always have these memories. He explained the culture, religion and way of life and we learned so much from him. I can’t recommend him or this tour more highly. Thank you so much Tahir! We will certainly be in contact next time we visit this fabulous place.

          Deceitful
          Deceitful. Give you a good informative tour and then take you to their mates in the spice souk who try to overcharge you 10 times the amount you should be paying. Do not use this tour company. The two stars are for the bus driver who drove safely and for some of the history we learned. Overall however, the deceit has left a very bad taste in our mouths about Dubai. We will never come back to stay. We will always now just do the obligatory transfer to another plane.

          EPIC TOUR and a must for Quick Access
          Skip the Line is defintely worth it and you must book a few days before to make sure you find availability. The 148th floor is the best option and you take an exclusive elevator all the way to the top away from the busy crowd.

        Orient Tours is an excellent company! Highly recommend spending your time in the UAE with them.

        Our trip to the desert was one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend requesting the services of Sahib (driver). He was extremely friendly, funny and an overall legend at what he does. Besides giving us an awesome ride on the sand dunes, he also gave us an in-depth view of life in the UAE etc.

        We were also joined by a guide from Orient Tours (Dejan) who was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and an excellent guide. Even though our days started in the early hours, he was there and ready to take on the day with a smile and encouraging words.

        We were satisfied very much with a lot of contents!
        We were picked up at the hotel at the designated time and explained the flow of the tour in the car. Our driver Sahib was a very kind and polite correspondence. Also, there were few people compared to the evening tour and it was nearly charter, so we were able to spend very luxurious time. (We participated by two friends, there were one couple participant besides us.)
        Starting with Falcon show, enjoying sand boarding and dune bashing. After that, we moved the desert by car for about 20 minutes, enjoyed Camel riding, Arabic coffee and Shisha at the camp. After that we ate breakfast. Especially at dune bashing, Sahib's driving was really technical. We had enough time and enjoyed it very much.

        Enjoyed the dune-bashing, picture with falcon, camel-riding! Arabic breakfast was only a shot glass of coffee with 1 piece date. But, they did serve bread with jam, yogurt, scrambled egg and orange juice - not Arabic though. Anyway, our first trip to the desert with the activities made up for the food!

        We had booked a desert safari with wild animals at sunrise and were picked up right on time from our hotel.
        After an hour's drive we took a break at a mosque and then went straight into the desert.
        We had the chance to see lots of animals and the driver did everything he could to ensure that we saw some.
        We were then able to sandboard on a large dune and were served Arabic coffee at sunrise.
        After that there was dune bashing, which was a great and spectacular experience.
        At the end we stopped at the Al Qudra Lakes, where we were given breakfast. It was very filling and more than we expected.
        There we were able to see flamingos and pampas hares.
        Many thanks to Mr Nasir for the great experience!
