Water taxis are often included as part of guided sightseeing tours and serve as a practical way to see the sights of Dubai Creek; however, the waterway can also be enjoyed via a sunset dinner cruise aboard a traditional Arabian wooden sailboat known as a dhow. Many comprehensive Dubai city tours also include combine a dinner cruise with visits to the Burj Khalifa, the Burj Al-Arab, the Dubai desert, the Dubai Marina, and the Old City area.

Highly recommend!
My wife and I had a great time on this tour! Mohamed did an excellent job explaining the history and culture of Dubai/UAE as well as many of the locations he showed us. It was insanely hot outside during our tour and he did a great job stopping to get us water as well. Highly recommend!

Dubai Aladdin Tour: Souks, Creek, Old Dubai and Tastings ( Small-Group)
I have done this tour twice with Tawseef. Once with my family in January 2022 and a second with by closest friends in June 2022. Each time Tawseef was wonderful. He is so personable, accommodating, and knowledgeable. The tour is a must for a bit or history, food, and smiles.

Great Helicopter and Sightseeing

Dubai Helicopter The Vision Tour – 22 Min
The professionalism and the helicopter are perfect. The reason I am leaving one star off is that I’m several times before our trip I confirmed a specific time and then the day before they changed it where it interfered with previous plans and nowhere do they mention needing a passport so we had to rush back to the hotel to grab it.

Dubai in a nutshell (Almost)

Dubai Sightseeing Day Trip from Abu Dhabi
It was a very small group so easy to manage, the guide was very knowledgable and friendly, the ride was lovely and the sightseeing began from our departure not until we arrived at Dubai (Through the highway) the only thing missing was a stop at the Dubai Frame & The Museum of the Future for pictures... Another 30min or so 45 would've made this trip perfect.

A great way to see Dubai

City Sightseeing Dubai Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour
This is a great way to get around Dubai and to get your bearings - awesome for photos and to get to the sights you want to see. Going from Dubai Mall we took all three routes over three days - blue, red and the night tour. The bus has air conditioning at the bottom and the top at the front or you can opt to sit in the open air at the top. Really worthwhile and loved every minute of this

Dhows and Abras on the Dubai Creek

Dhows are wooden boats with long, thin hulls that are typically used to carry heavy cargo for trading. Lateen-rigged sails on one or more masts help power the boats which typically carry fruit or fresh water. Abras, meanwhile, are the traditional motor-powered water taxis used in Dubai.
