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...

What People Are Saying About Dubai Creek

Awesome ad very friendly DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED

In the beginning it appeared something went wrong, since the tour guide didn't pick me up on Friday but in the end, it was all solved perfectly. The tour was very nice and I have all the touristic spots of Dubai + heard quite some nice stories about locals and local life. I would definitely recommend this tour. However, I do have one point of improvement which is my advice to change the availability online a bit.
