It was a memorable experience.we had a wonderful view of downtown and surrounding areas.I found this ride much more worthy than the dhow cruise packages we we had gone earlier. The staffs were too gentle..they clicked pics for us,they made sure that we aren't missing any important view throughout the ride. Thanks headout 😍
