The dhows in which the cruises take place have also evolved with time. From small sailing boats to modern cruising vessels, these dhows provide the best of comfort and luxury in the waters of Dubai. You will be able to experience the comfort that Dubai stands for and get closer to the city’s past as well. Cruising through the heart of Dubai is one of best ways to experience Dubai.

Very Good

Fine experience, was missing maybe a few more touches such as the voiceover starting early on during the trip, and a slightly longer coverage of the creek (didn’t see that much after all)

Reviewed in February, 2018

It’s a nice tour for kids because of the experience of being on a boat. The tour is pretty short. We live in Dubai so maybe that’s why it wasn’t that interesting, but I was expecting to see more.

Dubai Creek lined with sky kissing buildings all around gave us an essence of the city of Dubai. I had booked Dubai Creek Sightseeing Dhow Cruise on this website. It was a very nice experience.
