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

Great way to see main attractions of Dubai

We thoroughly enjoyed our day tour of Dubai. Our guide Abdullah was a joy to be with. He was knowledgeable, funny and nothing was too much trouble for him. It was a great way to see most of what Dubai has to offer which then allowed us to decide where we would like to go back and see/explore in more detail. The price was excellent value. We would definitely recommend this tour, especially to people who are only in Dubai for the day.

Well organised from start to finish - lovely evening

From the moment we were picked up from our accommodation to the moment we were dropped back was fantastic! Punctual, efficient, lovely man (one of the owners, sorry missed his name) very knowledgeable and so friendly and great English. The boat trip was lovely, food amazing and such a lovely evening. Thank you
Dubai 2-Hour Dhow Dinner Cruise Reviewed by Suzie, 09/26/2016

Cruise Good, Food average, transport disorganised (nearly missed)

As above. I waited for the driver at the hotel entrance from 20:00 to 20:30 but when it was 20:38 I contacted the tour organiser and was told that the driver rang my room and left as there was no answer! Eventually got picked up and arrived to the boat last minute before it was due to depart. It turned out that the boat was only 100 metres from the hotel so I did not bother with return transport and walked back.

Top Trip for all the best bits of the city

Went above and beyond the promised itinerary, even took extra time to fit in other places I wanted to visit. Very patient tour guide and made sure we were all happy and accounted for after each stop on the tour.

Brilliant, easy way to start your holiday for key information

Our Egyptian guide was fab, altered the tour to meet needs of customer taking no into account excursion booked. Substituted common sifts for new album news. I've all parties going to burn khalif so we went to Palace instead great morning and gave enough information for you to explore the city yourself.
