Private Shore Excursion: Dubai in One Day

We had an awesome layover tour through Dubai by night with Jose Gomez. While our 7-hour-stop we wanted to see the must-sees of Dubai. And yes we did, Jose Gomez did his best to show us all the things to see which are possible at this short amount of time. After about 4 hours of getting around, we had very much detailed and interesting information about Dubai, so much laughters, many many pictures to remember this awesome time and the best tour for the two of us we could ask for. Thank you, Jose Gomez!
...just to mention: at first I was a little bit unsure, if the time we had was enough to enjoy a tour like this, but Jose proved me wrong, perfect timing at picking us up at the airport and bringing us back for our connecting flight! Thanks again, when we come back to Dubai, another tour with you is on our list! :)

The Ultimate Layover Dubai Tour

We had a 9 hour layover in Dubai and took the opportunity to see the city. Gomez was very accommodating and knowledgeable of the area. Even though our flight ended up being late, we were still able to see everything we had originally planned.

Great tour and Gomez was an awesome tour guide, highly recommended!
