The meeting point was a bit difficult to find because it was wrongly marked on the map. Were the first time in Dubai and therefore very confused. But then we found the stand by accident and were able to exchange our tickets. Were then a bit late and therefore had to walk to the bus independently without a guide. There were about 80 buses, all white, the good thing was that ours was the only double-decker bus in beige. Actually saw everything important on the tour. made a small picnic with donuts there in the meantime. The display from the tape was a bit shaky and rustled from time to time was a bit older. But for the price perfect for getting started on the first day in Dubai

We really enjoyed this cruise. We had a nice table for two overlooking the water so had great views. The transport to and from was very professional. We were greeted and had photos taken with no pressure to buy. We decided against the alcohol package and only had the soft drink provided as alcohol is very expensive in Dubai. There was a great variety of food and plenty of it, you definitely won’t go hungry. All the staff were were friendly and efficient.

I recommend a magnificent evening, all the waiters are very caring, the meal is good but above all the ride is exceptional and the saxophone is great, very romantic, go for it

Really good tour. Our guide Amira, was very knowledgable and a top photographer. Great seeing a little of the hotels we can’t afford and the shopping malls.

We all had a fabulous night good music and the staff were excellent Would throughly recommend in and the view was fantastic
