Dubai by Night Tour: A Magical Experience

Excelente primera toma de contacto con la asombrosa ciudad de Dubai. Athina es una persona muy agradable y simpática. Nos mostró los mejores rincones para disfrutar de la noche dubaití, y nos situó perfectamente para poder continuar nuestra estancia mucho mejor ubicados. El tour se inicia en la Opera de Dubai para poder disfrutar del espectáculo de las fuentes en el Dubai Mall. Proseguimos a la Marina de Dubai donde disfrutamos de un fantástico paseo junto a este lago rodeado de rascacielos y lleno de actividad nocturna. Gracias Athina por una noche para el recuerdo. Thanks Athina for this memorable night tour!

Dubai half-day Layover Tour with Airport Transfer

Gomez picked us up just right after we checked in. We were so tired after the long flight but I wanted to get in some sightseeing before my friend arrived since she had already been to Dubai many times before. He took us to all the best picture spots and am amazing view of the Burj Kalifa. We saw the ski park , the Atlantis, palm island , the Burj Arab , all within 2 hours. He has lots of positive energy and is very friendly. I highly recommend!
