    We loved our tour with tour guide Chamil & driver Santhosh. They tried to give us the best experience and helped us get a good insight into Dubai life. Would reccommend this tour to anyone who has a layover of 10+ hours.

    We had a fantastic stopover tour with Chamil (tour guide) and Hussain (driver). Chamil was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information about Dubai and the UAE more broadly. Hussain was a great, safe driver. They were both easygoing and professional, and everything about the tour was smooth from start to finish. Also, the car was comfortable and kept very cool which was deeply appreciated on a hot summer day. I would 10/10 recommend Orient Tours. We are so happy we didn't decide to spend our long layover in the airport!

    The tour is a bit expensive, but I definitely think it's worth it. In 4h we were able to see Dubai's top locations not only by car, but with several stops to enjoy and see it properly and take great photos. Which was perfect for our 9h layover. We know some other people who had the same layover that went on their own to explore and weren't able to see 1/3 of what we saw. So if you really want to make the best of the layover and truly see Dubai, I would recommend this tour, as we saw both the new and modern side, as well as the old side with the souk and more traditional part, and even had time to get on a taxi boat. Plus our tour guide Nimesh Kumara was extremely friendly and so knowledgeable of Dubai's history and facts. We left not only with a sense of seeing several top spots, but also with a better idea of what Dubai is all about.

    We had a 13 hour layover in Dubai and decided to spend some of that touring since we had never been. Diana and Kishore picked us up from the airport and gave us an amazing experience. The tour is organized in such a way that you get some of everything. Very efficient. We experienced both old (Al Fahidi) and new (Palms) Dubai. One of my favorite experiences was riding the Abra over to the souks to shop for spices. Diana is so incredibly knowledgeable of Dubai and UAE both historically and culturally. She is also an amazing photographer who made sure we got great pics for our memories. I learned a ton and plan to come back to Dubai to visit based on this tour.

    Had an amazing experience. The driver knew so much history about old and new Dubai we felt as if were were there for 2-3 days not 7 hours. Would highly recommend!!

    The absolute BEST tour by Waseem & Kishor! The add said 4,5 hrs hrs, however, it took over well and truly 5+ hrs. They take you to so many places including the Burj Khalifa, spice and gold souk, boat ride, the Kings palace, traditional UAE houses and multiple restaurants, the famous palm tree island and so many more stops! We even dressed up in traditional clothes, just for free. We had a 9 hr layover and were travelling with 3 kids, and this tour was the best we could have imagined. My family loved every bit! Thank you Washeem & Kishor.

    Did a quick tour with Nimesh. It was great! He was very knowledgeable and pointed out key landmarks as we drove around the city. Professional and knowledgeable guide. For a short stay, Nimesh gave us a great overview and taste of key aspects of Dubai. Highly recommend!

    The tour is an excellent opportunity to explore Dubai in one day. Our guide Mehul was very knowledgeable and polite. He took us to the best points to take pictures of the main attractions and customized the trip in accordance to our requirements. Highly recommended.

    Wir haben kurzfristig unsere Flüge umgebucht, um einen Stopp in Dubai zu haben. Ebenso kurzfristig mit problemloser Buchung und Zahlung habe ich Viator gefunden. Sehr vertrauensvoll hatte ich unmittelbar nach Buchung die Bestätigung und einen WhatsApp-Kontakt zur individuellen Abstimmung. Die individuelle VIP-Tour mit Orient-Tours war dann genau die richtige Wahl. Zuverlässig getroffen am Flughafen. Individuell im gut klimatisierten Kleinbus sind wir die schönsten Spots angefahren. Wir haben in der Kürze der Zeit viel gesehen, konnten super Fotos machen und haben viel erfahren. Ganz individuell macht Orient-Tours Vorschläge und baut individuelle Wünsche ein. VIELEN DANK. Vor allem wird bestens und angepasst an die Rückkehr zum Airport gedacht, dass der Anschlussflug pünktlich erreicht wurde. Speziell Danke an Sarah für die Tour sogar auf Deutsch. So haben auch die Kinder noch mehr direkt erfahren. Sehr sicherer Fahrer auch - Lob und Danke.
