This is my second time using this company. This time me and my husband decided to go for a 5 day deluxe ticket. Service was amazing and we have experienced every tour that came for free! We went to Sharjah, Meydan racecourse and Flamingo as well as Night tours. Was very interesting and included in price of our ticket! Value for money at its best! Thank you to guide called Anthony and a driver Prakash for being extremely pleasant and helpful!!!
