What people are saying about Dubai Creek
There was great communication throughout the process of excursion. The tour guide picked up my wife and I promptly from our hotel and took us to the dessert destination. We started off with the dessert tour (please advice that you shouldn't either eat too much or go on an empty stomach as the motions of the car can make you feel sick). The driver was attended enough to ensure all passengers in the car are happy. after the tour we had a BBQ lunch and a few traditional dancer shows to keep us entertained. we also had the chance of smoking shisha (if your into that and handling falcons, which was rather interesting. followed by camel riding and pictures with the baby camels. Overall this was very much value for money. and I most certainly would recommend this again. I have to give an extra thank you to Iklaq who was the tour guide who looked after all passengers including myself who were in his vehicle :)
I had booked this trip from England, for my family and I. Amira our travel guide was fantastic speaking English and German, very impressive! We had a small tour of only 7 people so we felt very special. The shuttle picks you up from your hotel and drops you back there, which is perfect and so convenient. You see SO much, more or less of everything in Dubai, in such a short space of time. If you are in Dubai for a few days, it is great. Everything is explained in so much detail and you learn so much about how fantastic Dubai really is. Fantastic service and a fantastic activity. Thank you so much!
What a brilliant tour from start to finish. Riah was the perfect tour guide. Only 6 of us in our luxury air conditioned taxi. We stayed at the Atlantis Palm, then on to the Souk Medinat, we saw all the important sights and Riah was so knowledgable about the history too. On to a river taxi over to the gold and spice souks - what an experience. We saw the largest gold ring in the world! Then back to the Frame! Wow! A fabulous attraction. And then a look at the future 50 years of Dubai in the 360 cinema in the Frame. An outstanding trip. Great value. Not to be missed. Thank you Riah!
I went with my family on this tour and it was far above our expectation! We saw much more than expected and received useful information from our guide, Sam. He was super well prepared and made a great mood throughout the tour. He showed us the best photo shooting spots and was very helpful. I can only recommend this tour, as you get a great knowhow and a lot of experience of Dubai. Thank you guys, excellent tour!
A really good trip, with many good experiences. Our guide Sam was very attentive to everything about the well and often came with water, so he was sure everyone had enough to drink in the hot sun. Sam knew all the good places to take pictures. Sam took pictures for all of us, so the whole family came along.
