Great trip...Great guide

Jeannie F

My son and I had a wonderful time. Mohammed our Tour Guide was exceptional couldn't have ask for a better tour, not to mention the wonderful people we met on our trip. My customer service experience with Smartours has some hiccups, but overall that didn't stop us from having a great time. I will be traveling with them again in the further. thanks much.

THERESA

Everything was outstanding. The featured activities were all more than expected. The quality of the hotels and means of travel was also top notch. Our guide was personable, knowledgeable, and extremely thoughtful. I highly recommend this trip and the tour company.

Rachel

The package trip to Dubai was an excellent value for the money and the sights. It had sightseeing tours included in the package that were informative and of great value. The bus was very comfortable, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. It was a great experience and the sights were incredible! Would recommend this tour to my friends.

Natasha

An awesome trip to Abu Dahbi and Dubai! Very fortunate to have Mohamed as a tour guide, he is very knowledgeable and proud of his country!

Nicholas

Mohammed, our guide, was wonderful, peronable and knowledgeable. The boat cruise was a waste of time and the food, which was supposed to be seafood, was meat that looked like it had been reheated 5x. The 4x4 in the desert was fun but a little long and required too much waiting around. The belly dancer was vey good but the rest of the entertainment was not, especially the 2 guests who sang happy birthday on the stage for 10 minutes.

Charles

Our Tour Guide Mohamed was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the country and the Muslim religion. Our bus driver was also excellent. The hotels were average and not in good locations. We were expecting more, especially in Dubai where you can stay in nice hotels very reasonably. . We have been on other Smartours and stayed in nicer hotels. The staff in the hotels were nice. The hotel in Abu Dhabi was better than the one in Dubai, even though it was a Hyatt. The rooms were tired in appearance and the hotel was far away from places one would like to visit. It was nice to have the subway close by, so you did not have to take a taxi everywhere. The trip to Sharjah was well worth it and should be included in the trip. The evening boat ride was not very good and food was poor. They swapped out overdone meat for seafood. It was a cold night so most people stayed in the boat and it was hard to see the sights outside. We did not do any of the extra excursions. So much to do in Dubai, it was worth staying in the city and taking advantage of the sights.

Sharon

Great tour and a good value. Hotels were nice, but the Hyatt in Dubai was in a poor location in old town, too far way from the mainstream of action.

Shirley

The tour itself was good however we had more free time than any tour that I have ever been on before and we had no access to the guide at that time as he was off site. We do not have International cell Service. Mohammed did not recommend the optional in Aba Dhabi. The optional in Dubai was one of the highlight and I think it should have been made inclusive of the tour. Our Cuba tour was outstanding with smart tours and we are planning on going to Ireland in July

Irene

We had a great trip to Abu Dhabi and Dubai. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful mosque and new Louvre Museum. Dinner in the Emirates Palace was good. Dubai was awesome. The city was amazing.oman trio was relaxing. My husband had a successful fly fishing trip in Dubai. He caught Queenfish. I took a side trip to Jumeriah. It was nice to see where average people lived. The museum was informative. A good trip done by Smartours.

Cleveland

I have truly enjoyed this trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi. It was well planned and organized with a knowledgeable tour guide, Tareq. The hotels were spacious, beautiful, comfortable, and well located in these cities. The food was delicious and there was enough for all of us. The tours and cruises were properly designed to teach our visitors about the cultural and social history of the UAE., and they were informative and full of invaluable historical facts about the people of the UAE. Thanks for a great time, and I am presently encouraging my family and friends to travel with your tours in the future.

Muhammed was an excellent guide.

Didn't want another week to end without informing you about the absolutely wonderful vacation of a lifetime in Abu Dhabi and Dubai! I cannot express in words the extraordinary tour our group experienced. From the beginning until the actual date of our trip (April 2-10, 2018) my experience with Smartours was phenomenal. Suzanne was wonderful in working with me for my birthday celebration group! She kept us on task and on time with deadlines, And even when it seemed I wasn't going to have enough for the private group, she encouraged me, going the extra mile to make it happen! Once we arrived, our tour director (Mohammed Saleem) went above and beyond providing our group with exceptional service! He represented Smartours with skill and expertise. He shared his impressive knowledge of culture and history of the region and encouraged us to ask questions about things we didn't understand. He was patient and kept us together and made sure no one was left behind, and that was no easy task. My travel group was consisted of people of all ages, some in their 20's, 30's, 50's, 60's and 70's. Having the right tour director can make a trip fun and exciting or dull, boring and frustrating. Mohammed was outstanding in engaging everyone in our group. He was truly the best Tour Director "In the WORLD" (inside joke). I highly recommend taking a PRIVATE group on this excursion. It is truly a wonderful opportunity. We have made new friends and created memories that will last a lifetime! Don't be surprised when you receive a lot of inquiries about other groups wishing to go to Dubai! I have passed along your information to everyone who asks! Thank you Smartours!

I was on the Dubai/Abu Dhabi tour from April 10th though the 17th. Tareq was our guide. He was quite an educator, and the tour was very well-organized. The hotels were terrific.

Linda M

I was absolutely amazed at both Abu Dhabi and Dubai. First the Emirates flight was why they are always listed in the top 10 airlines. Great service and great plane. Shirley our tour guide was there to meet us and was exceptional during the entire tour. Always able to answer questions besides being helpful and friendly. The Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi was incredibly beautiful. Dubai for a city built in the last 14 years was amazing. The optional tour to Oman was very interesting traveling through the different Emirates and through the desert. Massive buildings and then the camel market were a stark contrast!!! Everything on this tour was exactly as expected with first class hotels and food. This is my 6th tour with Smartours and plan another next year.
