5 Views From Dubai Creek

Dubai Creek, or Al Khor in Arabic, is a 9-mile-long stretch of water coming from the Persian Gulf into Dubai. It divides the city into the two boroughs of Deira and Bur Dubai. Take a dinner cruise and see what you can spot from the water...

An excellent experience on the water at night.

It was my daughter’s birthday. It was a memorable prize for her to remember for a long time to come.

Fantastic tour and great value for money

The tour was very good and varied, and Rashid who was our guide was excellent with really good information on all of the tour spots... would definitely recommend

Essential activity for first-time Dubai visitors

My family and I enjoyed the half-day city tour very much. It gave a coarse overview of the history of the city, the old and the new areas of the town. We went to a cultural center, which displayed the local traditions in a very accessible way. When we went to the Atlantis Hotel on the artificial palm island, it began to rain heavily (lasted only for 20 minutes), everybody was cheering and welcoming the blessing. The spice souk was overwhelming with cents of the various oriental spices. Bargaining is expected. Overall an experience well worth the time and money.

Super organised & good view over Dubai Creek

Nice decorated tables, very good buffet diner. The staff is multifunctional and assures that every passenger is happy and satisfied. For us especially Yasser made our evening very special. Good sense of humor and a very good eye for detail. We can highly recommend this tour.
