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...

This tour is exactly what anyone should book for a day in Dubai! Anything that you should be visiting in Dubai is exactly on the itinerary of this tour. I was also very happy with all the history and knowledge we got from Maaz Khan who was our tour and driver and im definitely leaving Dubai with the best image of this country!! This tour is exactly what anyone should book for a full day in Abu Dhabi!! The full day is what you should book because it includes everything that you should be visiting in Abu Dhabi. Was also very happy by all the history and knowledge we got from Ashraf who was our tour guy and by the photographer Mohammad who was very friendly and was also helping me with how to pose!! Thank you!!

The hop on hop off city bus tour was very economical if you want to visit all the major tourist hot spot. Don't use taxi because you can get around Dubai efficiently with city tour bus. I gave a 4*because the hours should be extended to about 9pm because there are so much to see, but bus stop running in most places between 5:30pm and 6pm.

Very well laid out. Hand sanitizer everywhere. Social distancing in place. Very enjoyable ride along the river with views of the fountains and buildings. Food was very nice and staff were very attentive.
