After reading a few reviews (and paying for a couple tours and services) I was a bit apprehensive about working with this company. Despite this we had pretty smooth interactions with just a few bumps in the road.
The positives: everything flowed as promised, the airport pickup and drop off was on time, the pickups for the tours were on time, we had no trouble with our visa that they arranged and the hotel booking was successful as well.
The negatives: for our Adu Dhabi tour and it being on the last day of Ramadan (also Eid) most of the stops on the tour were closed. We weren’t able to go into the Grand mosque or the market and Heritage Village was also closed. This wasn’t really the company’s or the guide’s fault because it was the only time we could do the tour but we should have been pre-notified just in case.
Another issue was our guide for the Desert Safari tour. We were the only passengers who spoke English as a first language which was fine but our guide chose to speak mainly in Arabic and we couldn’t understand a thing. Yes, there were other passengers but when you’re leading a group for a TOURIST company and have people from all over the world you should assume English is the language of choice unless otherwise notified.
Last but certainly not least was my checkout form the hotel. Everything went smooth as usual, until the front desk manager came out and told me he would need me to pay for my room because they hadn’t received any payment from the tour company as yet. WHAT?! I paid these guys about 2 weeks before I even started this trip so why was my room not paid for as yet. According to the manager, none of the reservations made by the company were actually paid as yet so he had to hold my credit card for the costs of the room and if no payment received from the company, I would be charged. Needless to say, I will be contacting the manager of this company ASAP as I refuse to be charged twice for one hotel stay. No matter how nice the hotel was.

We spend some days in Dubai and wanted to see Abu Dhabi for a day. Upon arrival at the Hotel we asked for some referrals for a day tour to Abu Dhabi. We choose Yahoo Day Tours as they seemed to be the right fit for us.

Getting information and reserving the trip went very smoothly without any trouble. Waqas our guide for the day was very professional and friendly. He was the only guide during that week that welcomed all 6 of our group women included ;)

The trip to Abu Dhabi felt very fast as Waqas was giving us all kind of information on Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the road in between. We asked a lot of questions about the surroundings that were not necessarily linked to the trip but he happily answered all of them.

If there is something to moan about it is that we were unlucky to have planned the trip on the first day of Ramadan, which led to us not being able to enter the Mosque and some other places on the itinerary. The trip organiser could have informed us about that. But Waqas made huge efforts to make up for the disappointment and succeeded. We were offered the transfer from the Hotel to the airport for free.

Other than that we went on the Dubai City Tour and the Desert Safari with them and greatly enjoyed those trips.

I can only recommend Yahoo Day Tours LLC to anyone, and if you happen to book a Abu Dhabi Day Tour, make sure you ask for Waqas, you will not regret it.

My experience with yahoo tours Dhow Cruise was a very disappointing experience. It was a Family event which was embarrassing for me as a host for a total of 16 members. yahoo tours has promised several things, which was unfortunately not kept. Starting with the departure time which was delayed for almost an hour, keeping us waiting from 7:45 pm till 9:00 pm with an overcrowded dhow in an uncomfortable manner, that we couldn't even have enough space to pull out our chairs and that without even been told the reason of delay. By the time the dhow moved we had already lost the excitement of the experience. The service was not up to standard and the cuisine provided was below standard. 3 shows were promised at the booking time, out of which only one took place and was below standard comparing to the same type of shows I have seen at other places. Not forgetting to mention the Arabic coffee and dates promised as a welcome procedure, which never happened.
Finally I would say that for the amount I paid, I Definitely would have got a much better service and food quality at my convenient time without having to wait at any reputed restaurant in Dubai and as a customer I won't recommend any one I care for to go for this experience.

Yahoo Day Tours handled our booking which included hotel reservation, to and from airport to hotel, Desert Safari, and snack at Burj Al Arab. The booking was done through Ahmedabad office in India with coordination from their Dubai office.

Everything which was promised was delivered by Yahoo Day Tours without any delays or additional money. They were professional, courteous and ever ready to help with any concern/issues and they worked according to our schedule without any fuss.

All of our travel was handled by Anshul Vasnani in Dubai and it was pleasure to work with him and I admired his professionalism and attitude to go out of his way to help make our stay very pleasant in Dubai. Thank you, Mr. Vasnani.

Also, wanted to extend my sincere Thank You to Niranjan at Yahoo Tours office in Ahmedabad with his help and time with Dubai booking.

Overall, I highly recommend everyone who is traveling to Dubai to use Yahoo Day Tours services. Their tour prices was very competitive and service was over the top.
NOTE- It would have cost us more if we have done all reservations ourselves.

Thank you very much.

It was high time for me and my friends for experiencing the famous Desert Safari of UAE. I made some quick google searches and came across Yahoo Tours. Called up the number provided and spoke to a lady named Naveen Taj. She was very gracious and politely agreed to accommodate me and two friends of mine for the Desert Safari on a short notice. A special thank you to Naveen Taj for making the trip memorable for me and my friends.

The pick up point was Mall of the Emirates in Dubai. The driver was on time at 4:30 pm and took us up to the desert where there was another driver who took us for Dune Bashing.... his name was Abdullah. He was a young guy but he was really skillful at driving a 4x4 land cruiser. Dune Bashing was a really exhilarating experience for all of us sitting in that land cruiser. He dropped up off at the designated camp where all the other activities were happening. There was camel riding, sheesha smoking, refreshments, belly dancing among other things. The food was served at the right time and it was lip smacking. I loved the chicken barbeque. For people who drink, there was a bar but it was not included in the price of the trip.

After dinner, there were a couple more traditional dances by the artists. The trip ended around 9:30 pm and the driver took us back to where he had picked us up.

All in all, it was a great experience and a well enjoyed trip. It costed us AED 100 per head which was reasonable for such an adventurous trip.

Naveen Taj was a professional in the way she handled everything - very prompt in replying to emails and she made calls to find out how we were doing. The personal touch is most appreciated.
