It's not easy to find the meeting point, but it's best to take a taxi to the Hôtel Intercintinental and then walk through it and get out below, then you're right on the quay where the ship leaves. There were two of us on the boat and the trip still took place. Beautiful at sunset this skyline of Dubai! Know it only every advice to do!

Great experience, amazing views and picture opportunities of the sun setting behind khalifa. We even got offered water and Pepsi throughout the boat ride. Great value for money, we all loved it, highly recommend.

Perfect. Very nice views and very friendly crew. I recommend parking in the mall because the meeting point is inaccessible by car.

Recommended experience to see the sunset of the Burj Kalifa and, in general, of Dubai from the river. Phenomenal quality-price.

Lovely trip with Marvin, although it was a hazy day we had a great time and really enjoyed the trip
