Det var absolut ingen rundtur, endast direkt transfer till hotellet!!! Vilket hotellet kunnat gjort mycket billigare vilket jag tyvärr inte visste förrän senare. En rundtur gjorde jag senare i hotellets regi för 125 dirhan
I paid $130 (3 people) for a one way 9 minute drive to our Hotel. The vehicle was a beat up suv , not luxury vehicle. You can get a taxi for about $30 dollars for that 9 min drive, as we did to our return to the airport, and they are parked and ready to go. I suggest that will be the most convenient and efficient worthy. However, the driver was nice so that's I provide 2 stars.
La recogida em el aereopuerto fur exelente, nos estaba esperando un Sr muy atento y nos llevo hasta el carro que ya nos estaba esperando
El chofer maravillso. Nos explico sobre la ciudad. Em realidad nos sentimos muy agradecidos pues fueron muy atentos
It was awesome trip!
The best part is that we were kept busy all day long every day, unlike our other tours we had with the other companies.
Even travelling on the bus was not tiresome because the route was scheduled very well and each stop would not be for food only but to see something interesting.
Before we went there, we were concern about being safe on the streets - it was in vain - absolutely safe - no pick pockets, nobody was bugging us about what we were wearing and we were assured that it was very safe being alone on the street at night time.
People did not look friendly but as soon as you say hi - they would smile to you like to a best friend!
Tour guides, drivers - extremely polite, very willing to help on every step of the way and were supplying us with bottled water from fridge without a limit.
Accommodations - very good rooms, clean and regular size, just like in US. Food in hotels was good, even variety was not as big as we saw in some other places, but taking in consideration that some food is not appropriate for the Muslim country, still sufficient enough and tasty some very spicy.
The very first hotel - Avani Deira, was too close to the airport so the planes were flying very low every minute, so we thought it would affect our stay in the hotel - wrong assumption - amazingly, sound insulation prevented all 100 sounds from outside. Never the less the hotel would be better located a bit closer to the downtown. Again it was not a big deal, because a cab service is cheaper than in US and we paid 10 one way for 15 min. ride we would recommend to use local money - dirham- for taxi, otherwise you will overpay and they don't take credit cards.
So we would highly recommend this trip and Viator/Gate1 company.
