What people are saying about Dubai Creek
I had booked this trip from England, for my family and I. Amira our travel guide was fantastic speaking English and German, very impressive! We had a small tour of only 7 people so we felt very special. The shuttle picks you up from your hotel and drops you back there, which is perfect and so convenient. You see SO much, more or less of everything in Dubai, in such a short space of time. If you are in Dubai for a few days, it is great. Everything is explained in so much detail and you learn so much about how fantastic Dubai really is. Fantastic service and a fantastic activity. Thank you so much!
This is a good way to see both the old Dubai and the new (modern) Dubai in one day. There are 3 different routes that together cover Dubai. The commentary provides useful information on the history and culture of Dubai and the UAE. Note that together the three routes take about 6 hours to get through without jumping on and off. At unexpected times of the day there can be traffic on some of the routes. There was live English commentary on one of the buses along the red route.
Very good communication before meeting on the meeting point, substantial information during the tour about all subject as buildings, life in Dubai, political system, Islamic matters etc....... The tour guide (lady Angelica) could provide comprehensive answers to all questions of the participants. Good timing of the tour. warm greetings to lady Angelica...., my recommendation: ask for her! Regards Wilfried Wolf
Angelica was our guide and was full of interesting information about the history and culture of the UAE. Many photo opportunities. air conditioning in the bus. The heat is stifling so it was a welcome refuge. We couldn’t go to the Blue Mosque due to Friday prayers but we were given extra time at the Gold and spice souks. Definitely recommend
This was an excellent way to see many of the highlights of Dubai in just half a day, and was very good value. Our tour guide Riah was really informative and made sure everyone on the tour was comfortable, even on a hot day. The time allowed at each stop was ideal. I would highly recommend this tour.
