If you have a long layover in Dubai, take this tour
, Jun 2021
Took the night layover tour with Waseem. He was very accommodating to our schedule and hit the major highlights of Dubai for us in a short amount of time. Very knowledgeable of Dubai/UAE history. Highly recommend.
Great Tour Waseem!

Highly recommend this tour. Waseem did a fantastic job showing me around to all the best attractions in Dubai while providing commentary and insight. He was flexible and was able to start the tour earlier than I had booked, took me to a spice shop to try some amazing saffron tea, and it was overall a great tour.
Made a long layover into an amazing mini trip

Was nervous about having a long layover in the middle of the night but this tour made it easy to make the best of it! Waseem picked us up, had cold waters for us and drove us to see all the sights. He explained the history of UAE and dubai along the way, and was very kind and charismatic. He got us some saffron tea, and helped us get a late night bite . Couldnt have asked for a better way to see dubai or to spend a long layover. If you're thinking about booking a tour, DO IT ! and request WASEEM

We had only 6hrs layover and wanted to make most of it. Waseem helped us make the most of it. He was very informative and friendly. We will surely visit Dubai again to experience the beauty.

Out guide Asim was good and experience. His car is so comfortable and we really enjoyed our 3 hours plus tour.
Many thanks, Waseem!

I'm a somewhat wimpy traveler, but decided to step out of my comfort zone for this tour on my 8+ hour Dubai layover. I felt totally safe with Waseem as we hit the highlights of the city. Got to hear interesting stories of the places we went and Waseem was willing to adjust to my preferences - want to stop and shop? Sure! Want to move on to the next? No problem! If you have a long layover (probably 6+ hours so you can get out of the airport, spend 4 hours driving around the city, then be back in time for the next flight), I highly recommend his tour.
Quick and Crisp overview of Dubai

Waseem Khanzada, our guide for the day, ensured that we go to see the most awesome spots in Dubai in a very breezy, informative and fun manner. Would recommend Waseem for his awesome knowledge, initiative and expertise If you have a night layover at Dubai this is a recommend journey
Special Night in Dubai
, Oct 2019
Since we had a stopover of 10 hours in Dubai, we decided to book this tour and having the possibility to see the city during the night. The tour was organized perfectly and already from the confirmation, we had all the necessary information about timing and meeting point. When we landed in Dubai, we found a whatsapp message from Mr. Wahid with the details of our meeting. He was perfectly on time and has been very kind with us during all the tour. Mr. Wahid has been a perfect guide: he has revealed many information about the city and he has shown us the most important attractions of Dubai, giving us the time to take beautiful pictures! Thanks to him we spent a special night in Dubai and we want to recommend this tour to the other passengers traveling through Dubai. GRAZIE WAHID!

The tour gave a really good short taste of Dubai. Abid sent a WhatsApp shortly after our flight had landed and we arranged to meet at an earlier time than originally booked, which was great, and also meant we were early enough to see the fountain show next to Dubai Mall, which was the highlight. We were the only ones on the tour, which made it particularly personal and Abid was informative and open to any requests.
Very patient and accomodating
, Sep 2019
We had a limited window of time in our layover and Waseem was very patient in waiting for us to get out of the airport and adjusted the tour to accommodate our schedule. He was funny and informative. My business partners and I really enjoyed our time in Dubai.
