Arne L., Denmark
Our driver and guide was very good and had many interesting history.
Susan E., Australia
Great, and occasionally hair raising, afternoon ploughing through the sand dunes in a 4WD followed by a lovely buffet dinner complete with belly dancer. Something different to do.
BEATRICE D., France
Our guide was very interesting : he learned all of us plenty of information about Dubai, Emirates and the desert. He was also a very experienced driver. Everything was perfect and this tour will remain one of the best. For sure we will recommend your company.
Stephen T., United Kingdom
A great way to discover the Dubai desert and get away from the city for a few hours. A must do!
Kevin I., Australia
Thoroughly enjoyed the concept of the evening. The staff were very cordial and welcoming. The cruising was great, and gave a great insight to the nightscape of the creek and surrounding buildings. One major downside was the lack of oversight/supervision of the meal. e.g. The cutlery etc. married up nicely to the food prepared, but most of the guests paid no heed to this, and just gathered food with no rhymn or reason. The other main thing that stood out, was there was no indication when it was appropriate for people to go and get food.
Claire M., United Kingdom
Fantastic, driver was brilliant as was the full day!!
Clarence & Colleen D., Australia
Thrilling dune bashing, excellent food, fantastic entertainment. Driver was very knowledgeable about the terrain, and extremely skilled. He gave us insights about the country and an appreciation of the life st
Jacqueline B., USA
The sand dunes, camel ride, entertainment, and food were all outstanding!! A stellar evening!!
Adnan R., Singapore
Gulf Ventures did an excellent job. Their guide was extremely friendly and manouvering the sand dune is just terrific. We really learned about Dubai and Arab culture.
Susan E., Australia
Best way to see a city and save your feet! On the downside, our voucher said 24 hour pass but the blue and red routes only run from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. and we paid extra for a 2 hour evening tour. We feel slightly ripped off since it didn't give us time to explore places more thoroughly.
BESMIR I., Albania
Thank you for the professional service offered to our group. Thank you LOLI TOURS Albania for your help and professional advise. Thank you again

I was on Dubai with the familay for one week starting 03/19/2012. I booked the Bus tour for 2 days on Friday 03/24/2012 for the blue line to see the modern Dubai and on Saturday for the Red line simply because Friday is the holy day and most of the attractions in the red line such as old souk is closed. The Tour was outstanding and my familay enjoyed it. I recommend everyone to take this tour at his early arrival to be able to see all Dubai and make his plans individually for the rest of his stay. Great coordination, Wonderfull staff, the boat trip was nice and really worth the money. Many thanks
Michael H., United Kingdom
An excellent way of getting an overview of the city in a limited amount of time.Lots of helpful staff around.Lots included,in fact would need at least two days to do everything that is available on the tour.
NORMA M., United Kingdom
The staff were very helpful and professional. This was an excellent way to see Dubai in a short space of time.
Steven J., United Kingdom

Carol K., USA
Great guide-very professional. Loved visiting the Emirates Palace Hotel and Abu Dhabi.
Christina J., New Zealand
It was a good overview of Dubai for people who had not been there before.
geanny P., Angola
Worth, for the typical tourist who does not know Dubai, only then get to know the main attractions. Our driver was super friendly, very professional, we felt very comfortable.
Alistair G., United Kingdom
very informative and accomodating guide who even tho was eastern european her english was understandable
Elaine W., Australia
Our guide was fantastic. Really enjoyed the tour and his knowledge of Dubai. We had a ball!
DAVID S., United Kingdom
Excellent trip with exceptionally knowledgeable driver/guide call Rashmil or Ramil sorry from Phillipines.He was excellent and gave great insight. Enjoed all stopping points apart from pressure from Gold Souk visit
Virginia A., USA
We enjoyed the city tour and our tour guide did a good job.
Clarence & Colleen D., Australia
The driver and the tour guide were friendly and very knowledgeable about the interesting features of Dubai. Wish we had more time in Dubai so that we could explore more thoroughly. The guide was flexible, and helpful, especially when we had some difficulty with our Travel Card. We appreciated his patience and help.
Gordon M., USA
Great introduction to Dubai. We took it the morning after arriving to get oriented. Chris, our guide, was terrific. Good knowledge of UAE and enthusiastic.
TIK KA L., Hong Kong
The guide had too little introduction of the points. However, he took the initiative to take us to some extra points.
MARCELINO L., Spain
magnifico en todo momento,saludos a la guia.
Sally-Anne G., Australia
Great tour to do if you have limited time in Dubai, however you really need two days to fit in stops everywhere. Unfortunately the route only goes in one direction so if you only join in the middle you end up missing some stops. If you sit in the open part of the top deck on the night tour you get better pictures but can' t hear the commentary. Also the tour doesn't include the dancing fountains. A lot of the commentary in the night tour is repeated on the night tour. This tour gives you a great quick look at all the sights.
Yvonne W., Australia
A really enjoyable night! Great service, good food and the night lights along Dubai Creek are well worth seeing.
David S., United Kingdom
Friendly, good food, clean, enjoyable, and time to have some quiet time with the wife. I am not gooey, but she thought it was romantic, so it did the job! Would do it again to keep her sweet :)
Lina Gladys L., Philippines
the tour operator must confirm to us the time of pick up a day before the tour. The City tour was great, except for the timing. We had our tour late already and it was not good as the weather was too hot.
Daniel S., USA
Tour route covered mostly uninteresting sections of the city, and narrative had too much detail about ruling families. Would have liked to get closer to the sites that Dubai is known for--namely the biggest and most extravagant building projects. The ride across Dubai Creek and the brief intro to the souks were worthwhile for guest who were not staying near the Dubai Creek area.
Rowena C., South Africa
I booked for a five hour tour, starting at 1.30 pm, but was only collected just before 3pm, after several phone calls to the company, so ended up rushing through the tour. Unaccepatable!
David S., United Kingdom
I must admit I did find it amusing, when we were being briefed in the central point by our guide in the Gold Souk and informed that we had 30 minutes, the hawkers who were circling us were also setting their watches :D feeding time;)
Brian M., Australia
very informative tour guide really great time many thanks
Loretta D., United Kingdom
The evening entertainment was great and the food was yummy. Watching the sun set over the desert is a must-do....
david J., United Kingdom
Had a fantastic time from start to finish.Pick up from hotel was prompt which is a good start.Our driver who`s name was noor was very imformative whilst driving from different destinations.Timings in each place we visited were pretty good apart from the sunset stop where maybe an extra five minutes would have proven better for the photo stop.We understand you are on a tight schedule,this did not spoil our enjoyment.I could go into each individual part of the trip but to sum it up in one,it was value for money.Would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
CONRAD O., United Kingdom
It was interesting
Florence C., France
Deux arrêts prévus n'ont pas été faits : le Burj AL Arab et le bureau Nakheel qui était une des raisons du choix de ce circuit. Le commentaire était bon, le guide aimable. On a appris beaucoup sur les projets en cours. Chaque arrêt est trop court (10-20 minutes) mais c'est idéal pour repérer les lieux sur lesquels on a ensuite envie de retourner. A faire en début de séjour ou si on ne reste qu'un jour. Bonne qualité du véhicule et chauffeur très correct.
Robyn B., Australia
It was a great afternoon
Genea W., United Kingdom
Must do - We loved it
Ross L., Australia
The sand dune bashing and dinner were good - but I loved sleeping under the stars and the long discussion with Bobby (our guide) over a fire the next morning.
Elizabeth P., United Kingdom
Had a great time on 1001 Arabian Stars tour 6th-7th April 2010. Dune bashing was exciting, never done this before! Lovely evening meal, good to have a bar, fun to sit on a camel- never done this before either. We were somewhat surprised to find that we were the only ones staying overnight- ie camping. We thought everyone would be doing this.Whilst this made it an all the more unique experience, and we were given a cosy little mini tent to sleep in, it was a little disconcerting to hear weird, wild noises in the night- wonder what animals were out there??.. and just us! Also, whilst the belly dancer was great and the show enjoyable we would have liked this to have gone on longer- it seemed everything stopped rather early. However it was inspiring to see the sun rise from a dune above the camp. Thank you for a lovely experience.
Kevin I., Australia
Driver on the safari very professional. At no time did we feel ill at ease. Very informative. Vechicle first rate. The setting for the buffet meal was delightful, with a good choice of food. The belly dancer was sensational. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
JANE M., United Kingdom
a GOOD EXPERIENCE AND WITH LIKE EVERYTHING IN DUBAI WAS DONE WELL. THE FOOD WAS GOOD ALONG WITH THE SERVICE. THE VIEWS ALONG THE CREEK WERE GOOD ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT. WE DID FEEL THAT A COMMENTARY WOULD HAVE BEEN GOOD TO POINT OUT PLACES OF INTEREST BUT WORTH DOING.
Nicholas L., New Zealand
Fabulous views of all the famous landmarks in Dubai. Friendly and helpful staff. Great fun all round.
CHARLOTTE B., United Kingdom
it was brilliant and we will do it again on our next visit to dubai it was very smooth and not scarey at all
Enjoy a full day of hopping on and off The Big Bus...More »
"You only know what you get when things go wrong. In our case we had a tyre failure on the dunes. The driver changed the wheel in 10 minutes insomething of a sandstorm.A great effort.The trip to Hatta was well worth doing as well. Would definitely recommendit as a day out."
