And to stand out from all our competitors it has chosen to go on a tour with Ace footballer, Odion Ighalo.

Before now, Dubai had done several tours. They had even invited one of Nigeria’s finest Rapper; Falz during Valentine and Easter period.

According to the creative director of the Travel agency, Tolulope Adesanmi,” this tour is special because of the side attractions. The Soccer star is fully involved in the local and international activities packaged for the tour.”

He revealed that his outfit would be going to Dubai this year with Ighalo and highlights of the trip would include beach soccer, picnic, daily tours and sight-seeing, music concert and a one in a lifetime opportunity for a personal meet and greet with the international football star.
