Dear D6774, Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback about our Dubai City Tour that you have recently joined with us. We apologize for not having fully met your expectations. We fully understand your disappointment. Unfortunately, due to a human-error we have indeed provided one guest with a wrong pick-up time that has delayed their pick-up and increased your waiting time in the vehicle. usually all our shuttle vehicles and the main-coach reach at (almost) the same time at the meeting point, near Burj Al Arab Hotel. We regret that due to local rules, you were not allowed to visit the beautiful Jumeirah Mosque from inside and that you didn't enjoy the total time of one hour being allocated at the spice and gold souq. We would like to see you joining one of our tours/safaris soon again! Thank you for choosing ORIENT TOURS and taking the time to review us! Best Regards, Sarah P. Dubke Manager Guest Services ORIENT TOURS LLC
