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...

Great Knowledgable Guide & Friendly Driver

I was picked up from my hotel at the time stated without problem. I was on the tour alone with two other couples, but made to feel very welcome. On the way to Dubai from Abu Dhabi the guide points of things of interest. Unfortunately on the day there was a sandstorm in the area which made everything appear overcast. I cannot fault the tour, the guide or the driver. I would be tempted to visit different places in Dubai with the same tour company, as I wasn’t overstruck with the mosque photo stop or the Dubai Museum visit. I also didn’t like the Souq Markets as the shop owners are constantly pestering as you walk through, making it impossible to view. They will attempt to overcharge for their products. Dubai Mall was nice with plenty of options for lunch and views of the Burj Khalifa & the indoor aquarium. There is also a couple of lunch time showings of the fountains which are worth catching. Although I’m sure the evening show is much more spectacular, it’s a nice taster.

Dubai Full-Day City Tour from Abu Dhabi Reviewed by

Both the city and desert safari tours were excellent.

Had a great time with many new experiences including visits to the mosque and crossing the creek to the souks. The driver on our desert safari was very good. Plenty of excitement but Normie was always in full control. The fire dance was incredible and the food was tasty and plentiful. This tour was good value and ticked many boxes on our short stopover in Dubai. Communication with the company was excellent via whatsapp. Two tours at a good price - would certainly use this company again. Highy recommend.

Dubai City Tour and Evening Desert Safari Combo Reviewed by

Looking for a dinner show cruise? Stop looking!

We can highly recommend Rustas. Everything worked great! The driver arrived on time at the hotel, the check in went very smooth, the dhow was beautiful and the atmosphere very nice and friendly. Good food and service! You can buy wine in addition to the soft drinks if you like to. Good entertainment and everything was really nice. The only thing that was on the downside was the loud music from time to time. Our review is 4.5 on a scale of 5.

Very intereting tour, very good tour guide!

Very good communication before meeting on the meeting point, substantial information during the tour about all subject as buildings, life in Dubai, political system, Islamic matters etc....... The tour guide (lady Angelica) could provide comprehensive answers to all questions of the participants. Good timing of the tour. warm greetings to lady Angelica...., my recommendation: ask for her! Regards Wilfried Wolf

Great tour for photo opportunities, history and culture

Angelica was our guide and was full of interesting information about the history and culture of the UAE. Many photo opportunities. air conditioning in the bus. The heat is stifling so it was a welcome refuge. We couldn’t go to the Blue Mosque due to Friday prayers but we were given extra time at the Gold and spice souks. Definitely recommend
