The travel from Dubai was very good and convenient, the guide was very helpful all the time. Only thing I would suggest that the trip cost should include the audio tour at the mosque as well.

Our guide Ahmed was superb. He guided us about the tourist attractions, have shared useful knowledge and facts regarding different attractions, histry of UAE and 7 emirates, etc. He was quite calm and patient and friendly. He was also answering all our specific queries regarding dates, pearl and many other things. It was amazing. Only thing I didn't like is that I didn't receive call well ahead only an email around 6 pm on previous day about pick up time which was 1 hour prior to menioned time on the scheduled day.
